So many of you have asked me what to wear to a spring or summer wedding! Since spring really is right around the corner, coronavirus not withstanding, I thought I’d share a few basic guidelines I always follow when it comes to weddings. 

Here are my SEVEN BASIC WEDDING RULES to looking chic and being worry-free.

Rule #1 YOU CAN’T WEAR WHITE! I know it’s the 21st century, but this rule has everything to do with the bride and nothing to do with the time of year. 

Rule #2 Don’t shy away from shine! This pink silky number moves with you and is perfect for the dance floor.

Rule #3 Consider a modern silhouette. This dress’ streamlined silhouette gives off modern vibes which means you can choose playful accessories.

Rule #4  Order your dress way before the wedding so you can try it on, dance in it, walk in it and ultimately feel your best while wearing it. If it doesn’t fit this criteria, send it back. 

Rule#5 MAXXX it out. Don’t shy away from a maxi dress worn with heels. I love this one from Net-a-Porter.

Rule #6 When it doubt, add a Chanel belt. People who know me well, know this is true for me. Whenever you’re facing a fashion conundrum, whether it’s a weird waist cut, lack of definition, or just general blah-ness, throw on a belt!

Rule #7 CLUTCH it.Here’s a low end option and a high end option.
Have fun! A smile is sometimes the best accessory.

Few outfits are easier to put on than a wrap dress. Especially on vacation. This week has been slower, more (actual face) time and lots of gathering around food and friends. We rented a house on VRBO.com in Dana Point, with friends from Chicago. It wasn’t easy but we found one that slept 12, yes 12 people! Even though that is a large amount of people, the house had two levels and the beautiful kitchen was ultimately what sold me. I mean, I need that huge fridge at home.  On this particular day trip, we visited Lido at Newport Beach and had lunch at Zinquè. We had our fill of almond milk mochas and breakfast sandwiches. Yum! I had no idea the awesome shopping to be had there, but leave it to our littles to cut the shopping time short with their cute voices begging “when are we going to the beach!?” We quickly packed into the cars and headed to Cliff Ave beach in Laguna. A hidden gem I wouldn’t be a friend if I didn’t share. It was all in all a beautiful day with friends, not laboring but enjoying the fruit of our labor with the friends we call family. What did you do?

P.S. I also linked the one hair product I used for that natural curl below

pb274518What are you wearing for the holidays? An ugly sweater? Maybe more sequins? Well, seriously, what is more festive than a champagne wrap dress? Not much. I’m digging its laid back chic, champagne color and silky smooth comfort. Here, I styled it with camel tone boots and a natural lip. If we’re able to steal away for a date night, I’ll switch it up to these flirty sandals. Happy Cyber Monday, hope you can shop till you drop, in your robe, coffee in hand. Another date night inspiration in this post if you missed it.
