What to Wear to a Summer Wedding



I wore this blue and white striped dress to my college roommate's wedding a few weekends ago. It was honestly the perfect dress for a wedding! It's made of a really nice satin material and the cut and shape is super flattering (I love the flared skirt). The cut-out triangle makes it really fun and flirty, too. I wore it with nude sandals and a colorful clutch, but there are a few different ways you could style this dress… it would look really cute with a neutral clutch and a pop of color in the shoes! I also want to say that the wedding was held outside and this dress was lightweight and didn't show sweat at all. I always think about that before I choose a dress for a summer wedding :)

Here are a few photos from the night!


The wedding was really fun because I got to see and catch up with a bunch of my Kappa Delta sisters that I hadn't seen since graduation! Anyway, in case you're headed to a summer wedding, I linked up a few more options below (all less than $100). Happy Thursday, everyone!
