Wedding guest outfit idea: Day to night

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.

    What a lovely and simple treatment to take that very pretty dress from day to night. Or, from summer through the transition to fall! Great accessories, and of course the shoes are very sleek.
