Wedding Guest

This summer I am the Special Events Intern at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The art museum hosts weddings weekly and assisting in making sure the events run smoothly has been my primary task throughout the summer. After spending so much time in wedding venues during the past month or so, I am eager to show the outfit I would love to wear for a summer wedding!
I think a colorful sheath dress is such a simple pick. Not only is it flattering for most figures, it is a classic dress that can be worn again and again. Regardless of the mainstream black trend (you'd be surprised how often I see people wearing it for weddings) I still think that weddings should be a happy time and color is ideal. A statement necklace is a perfect way to dress-up any outfit and I love the complementary color scheme with the tangerine and turquoise. Since we draw attention to the necklace, keep the other accessories relatively simple with pearls and a gold cuff.
Finally, if you are like me, you will be planning to dance the night away. Not only are these Kate Spade wedges too fun, but they will provide you with plenty of support to twirl all night long!

Oh, and ps: Happy Friday the 13th, toodles!

  15. Love the color of the dress you chose. So vintage and very classic.

    Moonrise Kingdom was as delightful as I thought it would be. It was so nostalgic, fun, yet poignant, too. Hope you get to see it. I saw a preview to Beasts of the Southern Wild and now I can't wait to see that movie.

    Great post!
