What To Wear To Summer Afternoon Wedding
The dress is from Macy’s INC, International Concept line in PETITE. Yes! The halter neckline is perfect for showing off my summer tan, keeping me cool, and the neckline that is very flattering on me. The dress comes with a gold belt which helps make the outfit a little more dressy. The colorful print is fun and the dress flows quite nicely. Too many pleats on a person with hips is a no no. Macy’s has sales constantly, easy to get a great price.
I paired this outfit with simple nude block heels from Stuart Weitzman (which I got on an incredible sale). The nude heels I am wearing are Stuart Weitzman’s RealDeal. The RealDeal’s are a platform style which makes them more comfortable, not as much of an arch. Nude block heels are all the rage this season and are perfect for an indoor or outdoor wedding. The block heel gives you better stability and better comfort and at my age, it is all about comfort. You can find them everywhere in many different brands. They are perfect when you wear a bright print because they do not try to compete with it. Also, when you chose a shoe close to your skin color it is supposed to make you look taller. At 5’1 I can use all the height I can get, even if it is an illusion.
Why This Dress Works For Me
The dress needs no necklace and just simple studded earrings, these are by Kate Spade and very affordable. I chose to carry this lovely gold clutch from Macy’s INC line to keep my cell phone, lipstick, and tissues. It was surprising how many clutches did not fit my cell phone with an otter box on. I am NOT taking that thing off.
The Finishing Touches
Don’t forget a manicure and pedicure (no flashy colors). The color I love for weddings is Essie’s Bare With Me and is the perfect pink/nude. Also, go light on the makeup especially if you are outside and going to just sweat it all off.
