What to Wear: Wedding Outift for Under $100

Today's challenge comes from Emily in San Luis Obispo (what a coincidence!). She's an adorably petite school teacher with some big events ahead:
I have a couple of weddings to go to this summer and I spotted a cute/cheap dress at Forever 21. I was wondering if you could give me some ideas for shoes/accessories? The weddings are in different states so I could wear the same outfit to both. (We're on a tight budget right now though so the cheaper the better!)
The green and white dress Emily picked is a great foundation. Here's one way to accessorize it:

Dress - Only $27?! Forever 21 rocks for this sort of thing.
Sweater - Any white cardigan will do. This cropped version is a good match with the empire waist. $17.
Clutch - Isaac Mizrahi from Target for $16.
Shoes - Payless has some really cute options for spring. These cork slingbacks are $20.
Headband - Matches the purse and ties together the yellow accents. $3.
Earrings - Simple pearl studs balance out the bright colors and patterns. $5 for three pairs.

The final outfit is so very "Kate Spade" and only comes to $88. Emily is going to look adorable in her bright summer ensemble.
