A few weeks ago I attended a daytime wedding and in the days leading up to the event, I was faced with the familiar and usual dilemma of ‘what do I wear?’. The last daytime wedding I attended was my sister’s and I was the Maid of Honor so my outfit for the occasion was decided upon for me. Based on the venue of the upcoming wedding I knew that it would not be a fancy-shmancy affair but it would not be super casual either.
When I think of weddings, it is images of flowers, lace, and pearls that come to mind so that’s what I used for my inspiration. I love florals and I immediately thought of the sweater you see in the pictures as I began to put together my outfit. It is a recent addition to my wardrobe (Ann Taylor Outlet) and I like how the darker flowers pop from the lighter background color. The lace top (Target) I’ve had for a couple of years and I love the button detail in the back.
Now onto the bottom half. My decision to wear pants instead of a skirt was made as I was getting dressed. Since it was a daytime wedding I figured that the ‘rules’ for appropriate attire were more relaxed. The best leg baring option in my wardrobe would have been a black pencil skirt but I thought it made the outfit look less festive and more like a work outfit. Instead I settled on the black jogger silhouette pants (Gap) that I had purchased this past summer and were featured in a previous post. The pearl necklaces, bracelet, and the black leather peep-toe pumps I’ve had for several years but the purse (INC) is a recent thrift store find.
The wedding was lovely, with an outdoor ceremony on a sunny autumn day. The bride was beautiful, the groom was handsome, and there was a lot of joy and happiness. I felt stylish and comfortable in my flowers, lace, and pearls.
And then there is my beautiful daughter looking so stylish as well. She is my favorite accessory.
