Peach, coral, and that whole color family is pulling on my heartstrings right now. Also, so is Adobe Illustrator. I just wish it wouldn’t crash as much as it does.

5 Outfit Ideas for a Summer Wedding to Not Upstage a Bride and Still Look Hot in the Process

accessory, Date, Dress, Dressy, fashion, life, Love, shoes, Shopping, style, Summer, Uncategorized, Wedding season, Weddings

Hi lovely readers! Wedding season is well underway, and while it may have some of you shook with excitement as shown below, like me:

It may have some of you wanting to crawl into the nearest hole and die due to not having an outfit, being a bridesmaid, not having a date, not being in a relationship, being in close proximity to a bff turned a bridezilla…etc. As someone who has been in four quinceaneras and one wedding (not that many of my friends are married, but if anyone needs a bridesmaid hmu) I am here to make wedding season a little easier! The key? Looking hot without upstaging the bride on her day. 

Think elegant and sexy; no bodycons or crop tops, unless they’re paired with culottes. See below.

Truth be told, I am a sucker for weddings and a mild wedding crasher. I will cry at them all and will jump at the chance to attend them, whether my friendship with the bride and groom (or groom & groom, bride & bride) is questionable or not. I just love being around love. 💕

Here are my 5 outfit ideas:

1. Midi dresss with tasteful slits

From Tobi.com

This gorgeous one is from the brand Tobi. You will look hot without trying too hard. This cut is is ideal because it exposes just the right amount of skin.

A choker, block heels, a clutch, and a kimono for when night falls are the perfect accessories.

From Target.

From Asos.com.

From Nasty Gal

By the way, right now everything is 50% off Nasty Gal’s website with code Get50. 😩

2.Drop Waist Dress with Pop of Color

By Tommy Hilfiger. On Macys.com

The same hemline makes it possible to show some leg in an appropriate way. This color is so summery and gorgeous too.

Pair the dress a clear, nude, gold, or floral encrusted clutch, strappy heels to elongate your legs and a coral lip for an additional complementary pop of color

3. Off the Shoulder or One Shoulder Jumpsuit 

From Forever 21.

A lot of people forget shoulder cleavage can be sexy. It’s not all about legs or actual cleavage.

From H&M

Lace up sandals or mules are a perfect shoe choice.

From DSW.

By Jeffrey Campbell. Sold at Urban Outfitters.

4. High Waisted Culottes & Crop Top

Found on Pinterest.com.

Crop tops can be classy when paired with culottes and dressy accessories. I think this is my favorite outfit out of this list. 💕

These pairs are good culotte options:

Set from Forever 21.

5. Tuxedo Dress

From Tobi.com

Though this dress is certainly sexy, the long sleeves and tuxedo vibe make it dressy enough for a wedding. Gold accessories and a gold clutch would match the luxe vibe.

From Nordstrom.

Those are my suggestions & what I’d wear to summer weddings if I had been invited to to any. (Hint) Get married people! I need to wear these outfits!

If you are a bridesmaid and do not like your dress my suggestion is to customize your accessories to match your personality as much as possible so you’ll at least feel somewhat comfortable with the outfit. If you don’t have a date, wear a cute outfit & find one at the wedding!

Love you all!

Current Color Mood: Yellow

Sunny happy yellow is cropping up everywhere & I’m loving it for summer. Who says you can only wear yellow during the day? Wear it to go out, for a wedding, etc.

I’m also loving slit dresses. I love that it’s okay to be a little cheekier during the summer too. 

New (Spring) Beginnings

I’m wishing you all & myself a week full of new beginnings and wonderful things this spring. I feel like I need a fresh start. This app I’m trying out, Paint Joy is actually pretty fun and easy to work with. ( This is not a sponsored post!) I just like it. I’ve tried a lot of similar apps, believe me, but I won’t quit until I find the ideal one for drawing on the go. I’m in love with that idea. I’m also in love with wispy feminine dresses right now. What are you loving at the moment?

Love is In the Air

Even though the world as we know it has been turned a little on its side as we go forward into a new year and a controversial (to say the least) presidency, I’m trying to remain grateful and feel the love that remains. Today I felt loved after receiving so many birthday wishes. I truly appreciate each one and think it’s time to plant some seeds of hope. 

I’ve been feeling a bit disenchanted the past few days. (Lack of sleep didn’t help). I started thinking of all the things I love today, including this blog, and my readers, and realized, when some things suck, you can always turn a new page. You can choose to look at things differently. That’s what I’m doing today, on my birthday.

I made this illustration to illustrate a dress a feminine, slightly kitschy retro dress I envisioned for Valentine’s Day.

Have a lovely day! 💕

Maggie
