This week’s How-To Tuesdays post was about what to wear to a wedding when the temperatures change during the course of the day.
A cardigan is an easy layer, and so is a blazer or other jacket. But sometimes you want something a little lower profile and easier to carry.
That’s why I like a bolero style jacket or even the smallest layer of them all, the shrug–basically it’s wearable sleeves!
This dress is 100% wedding guest tested. I had actually packed a different dress to wear to a friend’s wedding a few summers ago, then while shopping at an Ann Taylor outlet earlier that day, I found this one and liked it better. Et voila!
The shrug was a hand-me-down from my aunt, lucky me.
Afternoon summer wedding: Sleeveless dress alone. (I wore mine with flat strappy sandals then; today I’d opt for these kitten heels.) Evening outdoor reception: Dress plus shrug.
