:: what to wear: newport wedding ::

When wedding season finally arrives (and I'm talking about the temperature, not the calendar), there are so many cute ensembles to be had. You need an outfit you can dance in, as well as something with a little pop of color. And also something that can easily transition from day into night.

One of my friends is off to a Newport wedding this summer, so I've put together two different (yet similar) brainstorms to help her get started. Navy is so classic, and also preppy without being preppy. She is going to be in Newport after all, so it's a little important to fit in with the locals. And after picking either a sheath dress or a maxi, the accessorizing is up to her.

I love some costume-y jewels around the neck--it's an easy way to dress up an outfit and while the two examples here might be pricey, Etsy and Stella & Dot and Just Fab have a much lower pricepoint and basically look identical.

I'm partial to ballet flats most days always, but I know my friend likes a bit of heel. So here we go with two different options. Both are summery, but the silver ones are definitely more casual. And while I love natural rattan, I think it always goes better with gold, and she's more of a silver girl, so the clutches give here a few different options as well.

Let me know what you think. AND...this was so much fun I think I'm going to do these "what to wear" posts regularly! If you have an event to go to or a piece you don't know how to style, I would love to give it a shot!

  1. I really like the outfit on the left.

    1. me too! but i'm still so on the maxi dress train, too :)

  2. I really love both looks. That green necklace is stunning. I would love to have it to pair with a gray tee and jeans.

  3. I love navy and green so I'm all about the maxi outfit!
