Wedding season is in full swing and I already hear the collective groan from women unsure as to what to wear. I totally get it! Nothing is worse than the dreaded black tie optional – WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? You want to look your best, but not be too flashy. Feel confident, but not too sexy. Steer clear from white, but not look like you’re going to a funeral. The stipulations can get overwhelming!
To be on the safe side, I always opt for never-fail florals or lace. They’re just so flirty and feminine, so you can feel your prettiest without distracting from the bride. Luckily, this fun dress covers a wide array of wedding attires, depending on how you accessorize it. Plus, this gold belt has been my go-to for adding some extra oomph to a plain gown. I linked all of my favorite wedding dresses below, as well, so be sure to scroll to the bottom to shop!
Y’all may have noticed, per my Instagram feed, that there is a new silhouette of dress that I am loving: the one-shoulder ruffle. I have always loved a good swing dress – trapeze, a-line, etc., anything that is super flowy that I can comfortably eat an enormous meal in 😉 Bonus points if it has pockets like this one does!
When I saw this dress, I just thought that it screamed Spring. I tend to order a size down in trapeze dresses and did so in this one. I am wearing a size 4. I can’t wait to break this pretty out for Easter!
Happy Monday, y’all! I am ready to knock this work week out because I leave Thursday morning for my bachelorette party in Charleston! It’s a couple of my bridesmaids first time ever seeing the city, so if you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below. When we started to book the trip months ago, we were so confused about why so many hotels were sold out and why the prices were so high. Well, it turns out the Cooper River Bridge Run is the same weekend, so the city is going to be packed! I’m not a runner (at all), but I am excited about partaking in the festivities 🙂
Jeremy is heading on his bachelor party this weekend, too. Him and his groomsmen are going to NYC and I basically made them a list of how to eat themselves around the city (i.e. how to gain ten pounds in one weekend). I love NYC and am so jealous they’re going, but I am looking so forward to enjoying weather in the upper 70s relaxing on the beach.
