Dresses That Are Perfect for a Day Wedding This Summer

Wedding Guest Attire 2017--Before 5 pm

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Weddings that occur during the day are (in my opinion) the trickiest to dress for, as you never want to go too dressy but also don’t want to don just any sundress (it’s still a special occasion). That’s why going with a dress that has a unique feature such as a pop of color, a ruffled one sleeve, or a cold shoulder works. It isn’t too overpowering for a day wedding but still has some added visual interest.

Wednesday Want: Bookmaking Brunch Dress in Roses

Modcloth Brunch Dress in Roses

 

If there’s one thing I love about warmer weather, it’s the ability to wear a dress without worrying about if my legs, arms, or what have you will get cold. Seeing as how I am a dress person, not having to worry about something like that makes life just a bit easier.

As far as this new Modcloth dress, I am loving SO many things about you. The colors, the lovely print, the fact that it’s above the knee (huge plus for someone who is just barely over five feet tall), and also just the overall classic look of it.

With seeing such a huge quantity of cold shouldered dresses out there (too many in my opinion), it’s really refreshing to see more classically designed dresses still hitting the racks per se.

Happy hump day!

Wednesday Want: Knit’s a Date! A-line Dress

I love love love this dress!

Seriously though–I love the color, the sleeve, and especially the fact that it’s an a line dress, aka my favorite silhouette. Also, I can easily imagine this dress being dressed up with a cute blazer or down with a denim or leather jacket.

It’d also be really easy to transition it into colder weather months by pairing it with some cute tights/leggings and a chic coat.

Wednesday Want: Southern Charmer Tee

For awhile now, state necklaces and tees that represent one’s home state have come to be quite popular. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the Texas tees and necklace but there’s some about this Modcloth tee that comes out to be the perfect combination of quirky cuteness and home state patronage. I also love the fact that this tee, unlike others I’ve seen, has long sleeves which makes it even easier to wear right now and into Winter.

Happy Wednesday!

Fall Lust List: Peter Pan Collars

Peter pan collars have always had the reputation of being “boyish”. To be fair, they can have that affect but they can also be feminine or quirky and they can even give a bit of a retro vibe to your outfit.

I love the collar on the ModCloth dress for the sparkles, but I really enjoy the stand alone pearl peter pan collar from ASOS, which you could wear with just practically anything.

What’s your take on peter pan collars?

Now that’s Summer here, it’s time to find the right suit and cover up so we can beach bum it (or wherever you’ll be)! Whether or not you’re a one piece or two piece girl, there’s plenty of options when it comes to style, print, and color. I personally am loving two piece bandeaus, especially the ones from J. Crew. However, one pieces have definitely become much cuter and quirkier with a peplum style or with a cool map print. For those who love a retro vibe, high waisted bottoms also are in style, and you don’t have to totally g0 all out retro with a high waisted bottom suit as they tend to come in various prints that don’t only give off a retro vibe. Cover ups have always come a long way since the terrycloth tube dress. Many cover ups can now be worn by themselves as you go out to dinner or for drinks after hitting the beach.

Current Spring Trends

As the weather here in Oregon has climbed up into the mid 70s, winter layers have started to come off and trends are becoming more alive. On campus, I can hardly go a few feet without seeing a girl in a crop top or wearing a maxi dress that is knotted on the bottom on one side. I myself have even been experimenting due to the changes in weather, and with the high temperature today expected to be in the low eighties, I’m sure I’ll spot MANY of these trends on campus and off.
