Hi friends,

Like so many of you, I’ve had a plethora of late summer weddings in my calendar, and I wanted to share some of the pieces that looked so chic and would also keep you cool at the end of the summer.  I want to be able to dance at an outside wedding without feeling like I’m wearing a sweaty sack at the end of the night— you know? While I’m usually a ‘neutrals’ girl (who doesn’t love an ever-coordinating wardrobe?) this year has really challenged me to open up to color, and I’ve been eyeing some beautiful, bright pieces— There’s always a place for a little black dress, but sometimes you want to go bold!

Here are some of the things that have been catching my eye:

Lots and lots and lots of patterns! I love to dance at weddings, so naturally I need something that I can sweat a little bit in but still feel super chic, will hide any wrinkles (because let’s be honest, I have a steamer but it’s still in the box…), and is super versatile for every level of formality.

This Shona Joy dress would be a fantastic addition to a summer wardrobe! I’ve certainly had my eye on Shona Joy dresses for a while… Pair it with wrap open-toe sandals to dress it up, or espadrilles in a coordinating color to dress it down!

You can never go wrong with a cut-out like this Jason Wu dress: here. I am obsessed with this yellow butterscotch/honey color. It’s bold, but works perfectly with a summer glow, especially for those with darker features! I wish there were a more affordable dupe…

These tortoise mule sandals pair perfectly with mustard to bring fall colors into late summer.

Here are a few others that are worth checking out: 

  • This off-the-shoulder linen midi
  • This muted floral is perfect for a garden soirée
  • This budget-friendly, one-shoulder maxi comes in a ton of colors!

What are you wearing to weddings this season? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
