My mom is getting married in a few weeks and I have three official jobs for this special event:

  1. Select and walk out to a song that represents "me"
  2. Bake and decorate the most amazing chocolate cake that 150 people have ever eaten
  3. Wear whatever makes me feel happy

The first two are easy: "Secrets" by Mary Lambert of course and I've got this wedding cake delivery in the bag; I've been a baker for YEARS.

The last task? It took some thought. 

My mom is doing this wedding in a way unique to the couple: a circle of chairs, community ritual, no bridal party, and the dress code? Well, it's rooted in physically manifesting your personal happiness through your wardrobe and I am here for it!

My final verdict? WEARING YELLOW MAKES ME HAPPY. Yellow makes me so happy.

I ordered this gorgeous yellow eyelet lace dress (I'm wearing a US size 24 which is comfortably loose) from Simply Be and it fits like a flapper dream! I'll be real- their dress selection is absolutely fantastic.

I'm still torn between wearing daisies in my hair or switching them out for yellow vintage lemon bobby-pins but I'm positive that I'm going to be wearing these white platform sandals because I'm a sucker for shoes that are both comfortable AND cute. (P.S. Simply Be has a US and UK site!)

It was also 95 degrees today in so we're definitely still in sandal weather regardless of the fact it's cold everywhere else in the country. Only in Tucson does it still feel like summer in October.

I absolutely ADORE attending weddings (did you know I used to do wedding photography and specialized in baking wedding cakes?) and can't wait to watch love in action and then walk out to "I've got bipolar disorder, my shit's not in order" while feeling 100% myself. 

I'm fascinated by this dress code prompt and now I'm curious: If YOU were to choose an outfit that represented happiness to wear... what would it look like?
