Dress Help!

I just found out that my bridal shower is going to be July 24th! That's the only detail I'm allowed to know though. I keep trying to trick my MOH into telling me details, but she's not spilling anything. But I am really excited...apparently she and my bridesmaid J are hard at work on everything! I really hope that the big surprise is that my other bridesmaid C can come up that weekend from Florida! That would be so fantastic.


Anyways, a while back (like, seriously, March), I ordered this dress from J.Crew with the intentions on wearing it to my bridal shower. Hey, I like to be prepared ok?



It came, it fits perfectly and I love it. I don't own anything that color and I think it's so girly and cute! So it's been tucked away in my closet, awaiting my shower. I've asked my MOH if she thinks it's an appropriate shower dress and she said definitely, it's the perfect thing to wear.

My question is...what sort of jewelry should I wear? The dress is very classic and tailored, so I'm not sure if I should go classic and just do like a strand of pearls and pearl studs, or try to make it a little bit more trendy with fun colored or chunky jewelry? I don't want to look uptight or stuffy...my shower is actually on a Friday night so I have a feeling it's going to be a little different than a typical Sunday afternoon shower. I'm planning on wearing a pair of nude colored peep toed pumps, just to keep it neutral.

So any suggestions on types of jewelry that may go with the dress or stores I can check out to find something would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

I would go for the more traditional pearls for the shower. They are always lovely and classy! You could bring along the extra jewelry in case you end up going out after :)

ps. My shower is going to be July 25th!!! I can't get any of my girls to spill the beans either :(

I think you can't go wrong with pearls. But you can always ask your MOH what she thinks more appropriate for the event.

Gold bangle or a charm bracelet and pearl necklace. The dress is so classic, I would keep your jewelry just as timeless. You are going to look beautiful. I love your dress!

Even though it's on a Friday night, I still think pearls would be best because the dress is so tailored.

I love the color of the dress. It is so pretty and I think it will look great with nude shoes :)
