The question on what to wear to weddings is one I get a lot. I shared some general tips a few weeks ago here in case you missed it and wanted to share another approach. From beaches to cathedrals, weddings can be all over the place and so can the dress code. For a day wedding you can usually get away with more casual attire.

For her, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear a maxi sun dress in a bright color or bold pattern (the dress I’m wearing today is under a $100). I love the simple pleating detail on this maxi dress which adds a perfect amount of elegance for a day wedding and the lightweight material makes it ideal for a warm summer day. A crochet lace dress is another great option for a day wedding – the material is a casual take on a more black-tie appropriate lace but still has the same feminine effect. A nude heeled sandal, fun print clutch, and feminine accessories finish it off perfectly.

For him, a day wedding is a great excuse to trade in his slacks for dark-wash denim and focus on other details like a sharp, slim fitting blazer (this one is perfect for summer) and dress shoes (this pair under $50) that make a statement on their own. Another way to balance out the casual effect of denim for a day wedding is with a printed pocket square (love this print). You can find more of Cody’s tips for wearing a pocket square on Hello His.

Just wanted to share a quick post today. Temperatures have been breaking records this month hitting over 100 degrees almost every day for the last week and shows no sign of cooling off any time soon. Our poor a/c hasn’t been able to keep up either so to escape the heat we have been breaking to Park City for the weekends where it is usually a little cooler. Even then all I want to wear are dresses and sandals (for those places I can’t get away with a swimsuit, which unfortunately turns out to be most places).

A girl can never own too many summer dresses, especially when they are all unique and have different detailing. That’s all you will want to wear in the dead heat of summer so you might as well have options, right? Love the criss-cross neckline with the laced-hem on this dress. Also just added this pair of sandals and love the nude color, especially for summer.

Below are a few more great options for summer.

BLUSH TOP (SOLD OUT, SIMILAR HERE AND UNDER $30! | ALSO LOVE THE DETAIL ON THIS TOP) || WHITE DENIM || NUDE HANDBAG || SUNGLASSES || NUDE HEELS

You might remember this top from the inspiration board I posted a few weeks ago. I loved it so much I had to order it and so glad I snagged my size – the ruffling detail is even prettier in person. It sold out with a few other retailers but still available here for 50% off.

I have been gravitating towards pieces with a ruffled detail a lot lately. It’s such a simple but feminine finish on everything from a basic tee dress to a plain white top. The ruffled hem on this top completely transforms an otherwise simple, boxy top into a feminine focal point. Completing the ensemble with neutrals like white denim and nude accessories makes for a chic, elegant look.

Check our a few other options with the ruffled detail that I’m loving below:
