We’re in the full swing of wedding season (showers, bachelorette parties, the big day..) and in efforts to avoid my usual trap of buying wayyy too many different dresses, I’m taking a different approach this year. I teamed up with one of my favorite brands, French Connection, this week to show you how just one dress can get you through it all. Yesterday, I took it to a Bridal Shower, and today? We’re talking Rehearsal Dinner-wear. Better still? You can win this sequin showstopper for yourself! ENTER HERE.
Like it or not – we’re officially in wedding season. Last year alone, I attended bridal showers, bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners and oh yeah, actual weddings. And want to know how many dresses I purchased to get me through all those? The answer is too many. So this year – I decided to do things differently. And with the help of French Connection I chose a single dress. So over the next few days, I’m showing you how to wear this modern-day mermaid concoction for every different nuptial related event you may find yourself staring at an invite for this season. And even better – French Connection is giving the same dress to one lucky reader, so enter below!
When I was thinking of what dress would be my hero piece of the season I knew it needed to have the ability to lightly layer, go with accessories I already owned, be comfortable and also a bit of a statement. This shimmery, curve-hugging number fit the bill perfectly. For a bridal shower I would pair it with this flutter sleeve top (for the record: I’m totally okay with wearing a touch of white to a shower as a guest, but would make it a second runner to another color, and try to avoid white lace in general to wedding related events), comfortable gold wedges, a small cross-body bag and loose low ponytail. Check back tomorrow when I head to a rehearsal dinner and change things up completely.
After an early Spring that kept my legs under wraps, I’m on a serious kick over skirts right now. There’s about a million good options out there right now.. but if you’re only going to get one (or, hey, why not make it 9), make sure it’s one of the above.
I wore this outfit when I got back to the city Sunday evening after a couple of relaxing days at the lake. I always find myself feeling a bit nautically inclined when I’m there, and so this is my city take on that vibe.
I knew that once I picked up this white denim jacket there would be no turning back. And especially now that the weather is nothing short of glorious, I’m more than ready to swap out all my darker colors in favor of bright whites.
