I spent this past weekend in Boston celebrating my friend Laura’s upcoming nuptials. It was so great seeing some friends I haven’t seen for awhile and meet her friends from other parts of her life! I can’t wait to celebrate in a few weeks when she actually gets married!
Since wedding season is on my brain, I figured I would share another one of my favorite wedding looks – the maxi dress! In the summer, I practically live in dresses and maxi dresses are my go-to for comfort and style – there is something about not having to worry if the bottom of your dress is going to fly up….much less worry = more comfort in my book! I figured since I loved these dresses for day time, there had to be a good one that would work for a little bit more formal of a situation. When I spotted this Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique dress last year, I knew it had to be mine! It is a great fabric with a bit of give and the cut is extremely flattering with a V-shaped neckline and the tie at the waist.
To add a even more incentive to wear this dress – I can wear flats with it! Depending on how formal the wedding is, I could wear heels or wedges, but I love the idea of being able to wear a nice pair of flats or sandals that are not killing my feet all night! Let’s be honest, if I do wear heels, they are normally off my feet by the fourth or fifth song – a girls got to dance…
To add a bit more glam, I added some fun statement earrings that I received in my last RocksBox and added this sparkly clutch from J. Crew. I think this outfit fits into my wedding thinking, but I would probably need to add a sweater or shawl if the ceremony was in a church.
What are your thoughts – do you feel comfortable wearing flats and sandals to weddings?
