Outdoor Wedding Attire

The beginning of July means that "I Do" season is in full swing!  Sometimes it can be difficult to find that perfect dress for attending weddings, especially if the event will be held outdoors.  I always prefer to wear something that is classic, feminine & easy to move in.  Though I normally don't gravitate towards strapless styles (because I find the fit can be tricky), I was pleasantly surprised by this dress.  It fit straight off the rack with no alterations & I wore it all evening without having to "adjust" once!   

This dress also comes in black & would be so easy to accessorize differently. Another way I plan to style it (for date night) is with a gold-plate beltstatement earrings & loose updo.  I also recommend bringing along a silky jacket or wrap for evening to keep from getting too chilly after the sun goes down.  Comfortable shoes are equally as important and these nude strappy sandals have just the right amount of support with a not-too-high heel that's ideal for dancing the night away!

What I'm wearing:
c/o LOFT Dress (also in black & petite & tall), c/o LOFT Heels (also in black & turquoise), c/o JustFab clutch, Ann Taylor cuff (similar), c/o Chloe + Isabel necklace, Nails: Essie A Crewed Interest

Disclosure: The dress & shoes were provided to me free of charge from LOFT, a brand that I love & shop frequently.  I was not paid to write this post ~ all opinions stated here are 100% honest & completely my own.

I loveeee that dress on you! I tend not to wear strapless either, just because I'm nervous it's going to fall off, but so glad to hear you found one that doesn't. I have a TON of weddings this summer... Maybe this is my next dress!

You look gorgeous!

Thanks! :)

Beautiful and simple summer wedding look! That necklace is amazing. And I bet you could make that dress casual by changing into flat sandals and some fun jewelery.
