When it comes to all things summertime, wedding season is here and definitely upon us. Last year, I had a challenge for my budget. Could I make a single dress work for 2 weddings and 1 graduation? I was definitely able to and am so thankful for that dress. (I wore it often with sandals throughout the summer.) While this year isn’t as full of weddings, thee are a few scattered throughout the summer (one of which I’ll be coordinating.) Summer weddings are beautiful and a challenge to dress for. Here in NorCal, the temps are already in the hundreds. Today is 102 degrees in fact. Looking for a balance between beauty, comfort, and dancing the night away, make sure to check out this look after the jump!
What to Wear: Outdoor Summer Wedding
This look is comprised of three essentials: the dress, shoe, and accessories.
A comfy dress with pockets.
This summer you’ll find both midi and mini lengths are on-trend. I absolutely adore this dress from Target and I’ll be wearing it on a weekly basis. In a sweet olive color it has an elastic waist, a midi length, and a double thick spaghetti strap. For added detail, there’s a generous pair of pockets. I love adding a thick leather wrap belt to elevate the look and accentuate the waistline even more. The personality to this dress is quickly added with smart accessories.
Your new best friend. Meet the wedge heel sandal.
I’ve been looking for the perfect heeled sandal for summer for a while. This one became the winner. With multiple straps, and a cognac leather color, they’re my go-to for all my summer nights out. (They pair beautifully with a pegged skinny and top as well!) When it comes to dancing, I’m a girl that loves to crush it on the dance floor. With a wedge heel and multiple straps surrounding your heel, you can cut loose without worry (or the need to go barefoot!)
Simple accessories that boast elegance.
I love keeping my accessories stunning and minimal. For this look, I paired a favorite Everlane clutch and layered on my favorites from Hadley Frances. These are pieces I wear over and over again. From rings to necklaces, and these stunning earrings, I wear them daily.
