What to Wear: Wedding Guest

Dressing it Up




I have ZERO weddings to attend this summer, as of now at least. And that's OK with me. I have mixed emotions when it comes to them. I like ceremonies but hate receptions. Yeah, I know I'm weird. I'm just not a dancer and it's the worst when a bunch of people try to convince you that you are. I know they're just trying to include me, which I love, but there's nothing worse than someone trying to make you do something you don't want to do. Woah...where did that rant come from? Haha!

Anyway, above is a pretty classic dress to wear to a wedding, spiced up with some fun accessories. Best part? This whole outfit is From Target and BaubleBar. If you have you eye on any of these items, click on the images above because they are all currently in stock.

Linking up with Long Distance Loving for Friday's Fancies!



Don't forget to come back on Sunday night/Monday to join my weekly blog hop - Weekend Update. I co-host with the fabulous Dana of Five30Three and Sami of Sami's Shennanigans. We'd love to have you. It's a great way to meet other bloggers!

I love the purple shoes! Perfect for the dress if I may say.

The purple shoes make the outfit. LOVE them! Girl, I can't believe you hate receptions!! But I know what you mean, people forcing you to do things you don't feel comfortable doing is the WORST! I hope you have a great weekend :)

I don't have any weddings to go to and I'm quite sad about it! I mean, we eloped so I didn't want my own, but I do have fun at other peoples! Haha.

Your Friday's Fancies never fail to make me want to shop!! I'm slightly obsessed with Bauble Bar right now & I'm in Target about 3 times a week. Maybe I stand a chance of snatching up some of these!!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I love wedding receptions, mainly because I can dance my pants off. I recently went to a wedding and danced the whole night. My body was extremely sore the next day.

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

The purple pumps are BANANAS. Dress me, please?

The City Boy said...

I'm really loving silver/gray dresses lately! I tried on a similar one for my friend's bridesmaid dresses last weekend and loved it. It really makes colorful accessories pop (like the purple you chose!!). Nice find!

Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } said...

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

I love the silver with the purple. My favorite color with silver for a long time was yellow, but this looks so good too! I'm looking forward to linking up this weekend :) xoxox

I looooooove weddings . . . when I'm not in them. ;) Cute outfit! I never want to wear high necked things though cause my boobs look huge in them, ugh. Love those jewels!

Ocean Dreams said...

That's an awesome outfit and I feel the same way about weddings. I like them but the receptions are rather awkward. I'm so glad that I haven't had to be in a wedding lately lol!

melifaif said...

Oh yesss...those purple heels MAKE that outfit. Very cute...

WE INSPIRE US said...
