Wedding Wednesdays!

Summer is in full swing which means Wedding season is officially upon us! With bachelorette and showers behind us, its time to concentrate on the main event - the Wedding. It can be pretty hard to figure out what to wear to a wedding, especially without completly breaking the bank. We are starting a new series for the month of June here on Booties, Bags, and Baubles called Wedding Wednesdays. Each week we will break down a different look dependent on the type of wedding you'll be attending: Beach, City, Destination, etc.

Week 1 is Country Club Wedding Week. We thought we'd start off the series with the wedding that everyone has been to or will be going to this summer. Its most common in the summer to be attending a Country Club Wedding but getting the look down right for this one can be pretty challenging. Just because the reception may include an outdoor component doesn't mean you should show up in a sundress and flats yet the Country Club setting makes the wedding more relaxed in feel then a city soiree. Our tip? Go for a classic cocktail dress and accessorize it with a lower-heeled open toe sandal and some soft accessories.

We love this jeweled embellished cocktail dress with shades of blue colorblock. The dress has just the right amount of dressy bling to take it into evening yet the style isnt overpowering for the day. We like pairing it with more simplified woven silver sandals, clear crystal jewelry and the ultimate prepster straw and silver clutch.

The Breakdown:
  • Dress: Mignon Short Strapless Colorblock Dress/ $348 at Bloomingdales
  • Jewelry: Grayce by Molly Simms / $100 - $225 at Grayce by Molly Simms
  • Shoes: Bandolina Orielle/ $68 at Zappos
  • Clutch: Tory Burch Rattan Clutch in Silver/ $248 at Jildor
