Wedding Wear: Ahh, I Don’t Know What To Wear!!!

 

 

Part 2: How To Dress For Any Type Of Wedding…

Alright my lovely ladies, here goes round 2! Here are my last few tips of appropriate wedding wear.

Formal Wedding:

BCBG Strapless Pleated Gown - Nordstrom

 

Nordstrom – BCBG Strapless Pleated Gown, $338.00

Black-tie weddings are the most formal type of wedding there is.  Most black-tie events are night weddings, so personally I would suggest wearing a gown.  Also, big jewelry, a fancy handbag, some killer heels, and styled hair are great additions to any dress!

Semi-Formal Wedding:

Kate Spade Faye Strapless Jacquard Dress Neiman Marcus – Kate Spade Faye Strapless Jacquard Dress, $425.00

Also known as “dressy casual”, semi-formal weddings are not as formal as black-tie events, but are a step up from a casual wedding.  Wearing a short dress with either flat sandals or heels is an appropriate outfit.  Your hair and make-up for this type of event can either be worn naturally, like you do every other day, or you can dress It up a little if you want!

Casual Wedding:

Tinley Road Britt Keyhole Mini Dress - Piperlime Piperlime – Tinley Road Britt Keyhole Mini Dress, $64.00

The least formal of all weddings, casual weddings are usually daytime weddings.  For this, you can wear a summery sundress or even a skirt or pants with a nice blouse.  Paired with a nice pair of flats or a pair of low heels or wedges, you’ll be sure to catch everyone’s eye!

Well, now you’re ready to go to any type of wedding… Good luck beauties! I hope you guys found these tips on how to dress for a wedding helpful! Let me know what you think, or if you have anything to add! :)

How To Look Hot All Day And All Night

Beat The Heat In These Stylish And Refreshing Outfits That Look Good From Day To Night

As August is quickly approaching, we all know the scorching hot days we are already experiencing are only going to get worse.  While there are many styles that are extremely cute and flattering on almost everyone, such as the maxi dress and skirt, they are not always the best for keeping us cool… And let’s be honest, I know I cannot stand to be wearing clothes that make me hotter than necessary on the already excruciatingly hot days.  Not only is it super difficult to find outfits that keep you cooled off while maintaining your usual trendy look, but having to change into an outfit to go out in after spending a long day out in the heat, can sometimes be worse! How can this be solved you might ask? Well, here are just a few suggestions that can be worn all day long, day to night, and still have the normal, appropriate look for whatever time of day it is and whatever you are doing!

High Waisted Shorts – Necessary Clothing $24.99

High Waisted Shorts - Necessary Clothing

 

Daytime:  Pair these awesome shorts with a blouse or nice top and a pair of flats or dressy sandals and you have the perfect outfit for a relaxing and comfortable day at the office!

After The Sun Sets:  Swap out that blouse for either a more casual tank or a crop top and change out of your flats and into a pair of nude or cream colored wedges and you will have a sexy outfit for your nighttime extravaganzas!

Crochet Bathing Suit – 6 Shore Road $138

Black Crochet Bathing Suit - 6 Shore Road

 

Daytime:  Wear this super sexy suit for a day on the beach with friends or when you’re just laying out, catching some rays at the pool.  Where ever you are, you are sure to turn the heads of everyone around with this chic little number on.

After The Sun Sets:  Be sure to pack a maxi skirt, a pair of jeans, or some high wasted shorts in your beach bag to throw on over your suit for your evening activities.  Not only is this piece an extremely flattering bathing suit, but it is also a stunning top.  Add a pair of heels or wedges and you will surely be turning everyone’s head!

White Jeans –Tory Burch (Nordstrom) $185

White Jeans - Tory Burch At Nordstrom

Daytime:  Pair these super cute white jeans with a bright colored tank top (pastels look awesome, too!)  and a pair of flats or sandals for the perfect daytime outfit.  Cuff the bottom of the already cropped pants to make them a little shorter – it adds to the overall look and keeps you feeling a little cooler!

After The Sun Sets:  For your nighttime adventures, uncuff the pants and add a pair of wedges or heels with a darker color (navy or black are always a good option) tank top or crop top.  Add a bright colored chunky statement necklace for a night pop of color and you are sure to be ready for whatever comes your way that evening!

Crop Top – American Apparel $38

Crop Top - American Apparel

Daytime:  Pair this crop top with a pair of white shorts and a pair of comfy sandals or flip flops along with a long necklace, a watch and a cute pair of earrings and you will be set for the sunshine!

After The Sun Sets: In the evening, switch out of your shorts and put on white jeans or regular blue denim jeans with a pair of cute wedges and some bigger accent pieces of jewelry and you’ll be the focal point of the night.

Trousers (aka “Pajama Style Bottoms”) – Zara $59.90

Trousers/Pajama Style Bottoms - Zara  Daytime: Add a nice blouse or tank top along with a blazer and a pair of flats to these super cute trousers and you have an appropriate, comfortable, and super hot outfit for a summer day at work.

After The Sun Sets: Ditch the blazer, keep the tank top, and switch out the flats for either a pair of sexy heels or super cute wedges and you’re all ready for a round of drinks at happy hour after a long day in the office.

As you can see, the options for day to night summer outfits really are endless.  This is not even close to an all inclusive list, rather more of a starting point to get you headed in the right direction! I hope this is helpful to you in planning your outfits for the rest of the summer, and if you need and help or have any questions or comments please just let me know! :)
