Wedding Wear

nude wedges

There’s always those occasions that no matter what you are always struggling with what to wear. For me weddings are the main source of my fashion anxiety. I am always running around trying to find the perfect dress just days before.gold watchwedding wearnavy lace dress                                   Dress: Similar | Shoes: Altar’d State (similar) | Watch: Target 

I have found the secret to beating the panic of of finding wedding wear and it was all inspired by this dress. Shift dresses have always been a staple in my closet so it only makes sense that they be my go to when I am clueless for what to wear. Texture and color choice are important for taking a simple shift to the next level. The floral over lay and navy color made this dress perfect for a more casual wedding that I attended earlier this year. If the occasion was more formal I would have opted for a floor length dress but still keeping in mind texture and color. The accessories should be simple and in a neutral palette to leave the main focus on the dress. I opted for a gold jewelry and nude wedges to complete the look. I hope this helps next time you are getting ready for a wedding.

    I always seem to go for the fit and flare dresses for weddings, but I think the shift dresses would be a little bit more fun to dress up. Plus I absolutely adore the lace texture of this dress! xo

      Fit and flares do show off your shape better. Those would go great too for weddings. I am just partial to shift dresses because of the looser fit.
