Wedding Bells

As I have mentioned before, I love weddings!  I love the whole idea of weddings.  But selecting an outfit as a wedding guest can be overwhelming.  I select my outfit based upon the type of wedding I am going to.  If the wedding is indoors I generally select a LBD.  I have at least 5 in my closet right now so I rotate for the wedding so I am not using the same dress over and over.  But for an outdoor wedding, I want something that is stylish yet comfortable.  I would select an item that is made out of a fabric that will breath so you are not burning up while the bride and groom are saying their vows.  Try a cotton blend dress or a long maxi dress for an outdoor wedding.  You can then make the dress dressier with accessories and shoes.  The most reason wedding I attended was held outside and I knew I was going to be on my feet helping with set up and clean up so I selected a cotton dress.  The dress is a bright color for summer.  I paired the dress with gold bracelets, and a great cocktail ring to make it a little dressier.  As for the shoes, I would generally wear something a little fancier, but I wanted to be able to move fast on my feet so I went with black leather sandals that are so comfortable.  I personally LOVE the look.

I love weddings too! This is a great look and a gorgeous color on you. I went to a wedding this past weekend and I wore an orange dress. I really love your ring and your accessories. You put a great look together for an outdoor wedding.

Thanks! I fell in love with the ring as soon as I saw it. Then Pree Brulee was having a weekend sale and I knew it was meant to be.

As for the dress, when I look at it I still can't believe it came from Target.
