Poolside Casual Dinner

Hello, Darlings!

Wedding season continues! Last night I attended a poolside casual dinner in honor of my nephew and his lovely bride to be. It was a beautiful evening with cocktails on the patio and a delicious dinner poolside.  In planning for this dinner I struggled a little with what to wear.  Ultimately I decided that a maxi dress was what I wanted to wear.  I chose the Chico’s Floral Maxi dress.

I really like this dress and look forward to wearing it many times this summer. The dress has a keyhole neckline and a figure-flattering blouson at the waist. Just below the blouson it is slightly fitted which gives a slimmer look to the hip area.  The print is a gorgeous tropical floral in navy with a splash of lime green on a background of white.  Very fresh and modern looking. Best part, I was able to order this dress in petite.

I chose to accent this dress with a FABULOUS pair of white beaded tassel earrings from Baublebar. This dress just screamed tassel earring from the moment I bought it.  Baublebar is having a 30% off sale right now.  Perfect time to stock up on great accessories. For shoes, I chose to be super comfortable and went with this pair of white FitFlops.  This was a great choice in that the surfaces of the patio and path down to the pool area were rocky and unstable.  Plus, I could stand for hours and not worry about my feet hurting.

These earrings are the Mini Granita Tassel Earrings. I have these earrings in several colors.  They have become some of my favorites for helping to bring attention up.

I did want to share that underneath the dress I wore my Soma Smoothing Shorts to give a smooth look, and my Soma Enhancing Shape Strapless Bra.  The Smoothing Shorts, unlike Spanx, are lightweight and not tight.  They remind me of pantyhose.  I felt comfortable the entire evening.

Lots of parties and get-togethers planned for the summer.  This dress will be perfect for a garden party or even a summer wedding.  Just change out the accessories.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend activities. Memorial Day and the official start of summer will be here before you know it.
