Summer Wedding Dresses

I love summer. I love weddings. And this Saturday, I am so excited to be able to watch one of our dear friends’ oldest daughter say “I Do.” <3

As much as I love weddings, I honestly have not been to that many! Did I mention that my closet is needing some major updating?? I went shopping today to get something to wear for the ceremony and reception. It’s an outdoor wedding in the middle of Missouri. It looks like its going to be a cool 92* 🙁  I sweat. Like, a lot. Like, a disgusting amount. I absolutely hate it. I can go outside in 80* weather for 5 minutes and be dripping in sweat, and Jayson will be as cool as a cucumber. We’ll be sitting poolside in 100* weather, and Ill be swimming in my own sweat, and he’ll be just barely glistening. It’s just not fair.

I made it to Kohl’s today. Kids in tow, so the trip didn’t last very long. I did manage to try on 6 dresses. Ally liked 4 of the 6. I liked 2….lol

What do you think? Would you wear either of these to a hot, outdoor wedding?

Option 1: Candie’s Flower Print Halter Maxi Dress 

This dress is buttery soft, super light and airy. I think it’d be perfect! I tried on a pair of wedge heels from the shoe section, but I wasn’t in love with them. Plus, it’ll put me a few inches taller than Jayson lol A friend suggested some jeweled sandals with either of these dresses. Thoughts?


Option 2: IzByer Crochet Maxi Dress

Does it help if it’s side by side?  Side view and front view, if that helps.
I’m going to have to make a decision soon, and I just cant! I made it to TJ Maxx, Penny’s and Revived (resales shop like Platos Closet) yesterday, and found 0 other options!


I am the worst when it comes to shopping. Why couldnt I have been given the slightest bit of knowledge when it comes to fashion??? 😛
