All you fashionistas, a little advice please...

This weekend I'm attending a wedding. Since I've lost some poundage but not enough to fit into my skinny clothes I had to buy some new wedding garb. See below what I purchased to wear:

The pants are a wool blend from Banana Republic. These are the exact pants except there is no cuff. Did you know cuffed pants make you look shorter? I'm only 5'4" to begin with so I certainly don't need to look any shorter. Because as much as I think midgets are cute, I don't want to be one.

The shirt is a Target special. Don't even ask me how many shirts I tried on. My boobs hate me. This shirt is a simple jersey material that I'm hoping to dress up some. I think the color is just lovely.

Here's where I'd like some advice. I don't know that I've ever owned a pair of camel color pants so I'm sort of at a loss on what accessories to wear. I have black heels, but that seems so, um, normal. I prefer to have a slight kick to my outfits. So, if you were wearing this outfit to a Saturday afternoon wedding and you wanted to jazz it up some, what accessories (shoes and jewelry) would you pick? Or maybe you think the whole outfit is hideous? To which I will reply - If you have a better idea, buy me clothes and ship them to me, because I'm not shopping anymore for this event. Unless it's for shoes and jewelry.

I am not a fashionista and I don't own anything in that color, so I am totally useless here. I would have gone for all black accessories myself. I'm curious to hear what actually fashionable people have to say.

I actually think black shoes would look best with that outfit. But I'm sure you can find some snazzy black ones. With some snazzy gold jewelry (with maybe green tones). Such as:

Whose wedding? Regardless, you'll look fantastic.

(You should definitely make those muffins. They're FANTASTIC.)

I think a green actually. Something with a kitten heel.

OH MY GOSH! I bought the same exact shirt at target on sunday, but in red! it is lovely!! :) I would go with dark brown sexy shoes, and jewelry with different shades of brown in them. the pants are great too!

I would definitely wear black shoes, unless you want to buy shoes that you will likely never wear again. And if you do black, silver jewelry.

You might be able to do gold shoes, but I'd have to see that in person. And if so, these earrings are perfect:
