I have the hardest time picking out outfits for weddings. And with wedding season in full swing I am left with several questions. Is it casual? Fancy? What colors are used in the wedding theme? Am I wearing the same color as the bridesmaids? All valid questions when picking you wedding attire.
There are three easy ways to pick out wedding attire:
1. Look at the invite. Usually invitations reveal the type of event your attending. The location of the event speaks to the kind of event it it, fancy or more casual. The invitations are usually done in the theme colors the Bride and Groom are using, so you can stay away from wearing the same colors as the bridal party.
2. Layer. Especially if its an outdoor wedding layers are alway good. Pair one of your more formal dresses with a casual jacket. That way you can gage the event when you get there and remove the jacket if needed.
3. Pack light. Always bring a small purse with only the necessities. Don’t forget the lipsticks so you can reapply.
Here’s the approach I took:
I paired my favorite formal dress with a jean jacket, and heeled boots. Add some more daring accessories such as a flower crown and bold necklace to keep it fresh and unique to your personal style.

Tees are essential to any girls wardrobe however, I find my self lacking in the “plain tee” department. Why do plain tees have to be so well, plain? New silhouettes spice up the notion of “the plain tee” and still give your statement pieces their time to shine. I am personal fan of these three boho cut tops.
Pair this top with a tight fitting skirt and some statement booties for a night out on the town. This look is perfect for evening and to think you’re still wearing a tee shirt.
Put this tee over a dress for a casual summer day of errands or outing with the gals. The high-low compliments the dress perfectly for those cooler days summer when you need those shoulders covered.
Throw on your favorite flowing top paired with floral shorts and a flower crown for the perfect festival look. Comfortable fabrics in longing flowing layers are perfect for concert hopping. Honestly, it’s like you are wearing your jammies.
None of these looks would be complete without a necklace (or two). Add some jewels and the new plain tees are set for any occasion.

“Whenever I buy new clothes, I take the home and I’m just like yo what the heck did I wear before I had this”
I saw this quote in my Instagram feed and it couldn’t be more true today because I bought a new dress, and I’m never taking it off.
This slip-dress is perfect for the summer to show off those straps, but can also be paired with some tights and jacket for those colder spring days. Throw on some chunky heels and some jewels and you’re off. It goes with everything and like I said, Im never taking it off.

Overalls are back and I personally could NOT be happier. Dressed up or down these bad boys are one of my favorite go-to pieces.
I personally own a very Proprium Floris pair myself.
Throw a crop top under any pair of overalls and your favorite pair of shoes and you are ready for the day. Perhaps out to the park or shopping with the gals? I’d personally wear these to sleep if it wasn’t frowned upon.
