HI! Long time, no talk. I need to be better about staying more consistent with my posts and definitely go in spurts of writing. I have to be honest, I go in waves of feeling inspired to write and some days get distracted by everything else going on in life. BUT – I really want to do my best to stay consistent and steady on keeping up with this blog, because I really do enjoy it so much.
This post is an exciting one, because it has to do with planning multiple outfits for a weekend or events requiring different looks. My brother AKA best friend got married last weekend, and it was BY FAR the best night AND weekend of my life. There was so much love, laughter, and tears of course. With attending or being in a wedding requires wearing a variety of outfits – you’re looking at a rehearsal dinner, perhaps even a night before the rehearsal dinner if you have friends visiting from out of town, the wedding itself, brunches, YOU NAME IT! In my situation, I had to pick a look to be filmed in front of cameras. Yes, cameras. My brother is currently filming a reality series and I was filmed for a segment to be in one of the episodes. I can’t say much now, but stayed tuned
I was the Best Woman in his wedding and I wanted it to be perfect, so I made sure to plan ahead so that the best looks were chosen. Anyone who knows me knows I strategically plan important occasions around outfits. They would also agree that I just like be comfortable – particularly in maxis, midi’s, jumpsuits, rompers, pretty much anything that’s easy to just slip on. So, naturally, that’s what the whole weekend consisted of…duh.
Since the wedding was a destination one for many (a lot of our friends and family came from the East Coast), they made a trip out of it and stayed for a few days. The wedding itself was on Sunday, so the weekend was packed with things to do from Friday-Monday. Friday night, we all got together for dinner & drinks to kick off the weekend where I wore a Reformation maxi dress. This one is floral, comfortable, has adjustable straps and is just plain EASY. It can also be dressed up or down depending on where you wear it.
Saturday morning my mom, Aunt, and Grandma all went to my brother’s house to film for his reality show. I wanted to be comfortable and wear something that would be flattering. (I can’t say I’ve ever been on camera like this before, so I wanted a safe option). This jumpsuit is ALSO from Reformation – I think I’m on a reformation kick lately?? It buttons up, is SO comfy, and is bra friendly. Who doesn’t love a good bra friendly outfit these days?
For the rehearsal dinner, I for some reason had my mind set on wearing a black jumpsuit, and no one could talk me out of it. I searched and searched, and of course Lulu’s didn’t disappoint with the perfect mix of sexy & sophisticated. This next number is literally called “Moment For Life” black jumpsuit, which I think perfectly describes it. I got so many compliments on this one and will 100% be able to wear again to other events in the future.
Last but not least, more like the BEST, is my wedding dress from Revolve. My brother wanted something relaxed, girly, a little boho, and this dress encompassed just that. I wore a flower crown the whole night as well until I got many requests from others to wear it.
Yeah, that last pic sums up our night. ^^^
I hope this helped give some ideas & insight on what to wear to events like this, how to plan outfits ahead of time, or just some ideas for new places to shop for fun occasions.
