A Summer Wedding!

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! We did because my nephew got married and had a really beautiful wedding. It’s such a nice time to get together to catch up with everyone and for a happy occasion — as opposed to the opposite! Anyway, this is what I wore.

You’ve seen the dress here before. It’s material with some stretch so comfortable for sitting and dancing. Yes, it’s sleeveless (seems like that’s all they make these days!) but if you’re in air conditioning it’s so easy to match a shawl to the dress. This exact floral pattern is no longer for sale but they have very pretty options here and here, a solid option here and a really cute polka dot here. I did size up (usually a size 16 but went with 18 here). There are plus size available too here and petite here.

The brand is Alyx and the style is a sheath dress. My favorite cut for a dress. No pesky waistband! You’ve seen me wearing their dresses before here and here.

I got the shawl at Charming Charlie’s which had so many to choose from I had a hard time deciding. I forgot to take a picture of tying the shawl in front which was a nice option to keep it from sliding off. It was just heavy enough to hang nicely in front and keep the chill off my shoulders while under the air conditioning unit.

So, that was my wedding attire. Sorry about showing the same shoes over and over. I would have tried out my dark green pumps with this dress that you’ve seen here but I’ve packed them up along with most of my others so you’ll have to bear with these a bit longer. See you on Wednesday!
