Summer Weddings & Events: What to Wear!!

Summertime is finally here!! We have some weddings and events coming up, and I have been on the hunt for the perfect dresses. I’m a huge online shopper, and it can be so hard to tell what a dress really looks like in person. I thought I would take some of the hard work away from y’all and show you 4 dresses in different lengths that I ended up loving for summer events! I’m also sharing my favorite accessories to wear them with, and 2 additional dresses that I don’t own but am confident will work for any summer event! All of these are from Nordstrom which means free shipping (yay!).

You can visit my Instagram stories for a peek at what these dresses look like in person.

1.) NSR Ruffle Hem Minidress (also comes in black and a gorgeous blush!!) / $78. I am in love with this dress!! When I opened the package- I literally gasped with excitement! This is the dress I had been waiting for! It is SO much more beautiful in person than online. The quality is super high, the fabric and fit are gorgeous, and I love it in every color! I wear the size small. I think this would be great for a summer wedding or event!! I ordered the orange which is gorgeous, but if you don’t love orange definitely try this blush pink color. It’s stunning!! It also comes in black which would be great for a cocktail party.

2.) NSR Gracie Cupro Mid Length Body-Con Dress / $36.90 (RUN!) Oh my goodness. I just love the fit, feel, and color of this dress. It is a soft, flattering material that is double lined- so you don’t have to worry about undergarments showing! You can also easily wear a strapless bra. I wear a size small. I think this dress could be great for a summertime wedding or wedding rehearsal- especially if you dress it up with fancy gold hoops and a gold clutch! It would also be great for any cocktail party or event. This also comes in black! Gracie Cupro Body-Con Dress,                         Main,                         color, Cinnabar

3.) WAYF Ruffle Cut Out Maxi Dress / $109. Okay, this dress is unique and a fun change of pace to what I normally wear. I spotted this dress about a month ago in stores and didn’t have time to try on, so immediately went home and ordered it.. that is how gorgeous it is in person!! Immediately after trying it on for the first time, I started noticing that a lot of big time bloggers started posting about this dress- and there’s a reason!! It is SO cute and fun. I wear a small. You will definitely get so many compliments on this dress all night long at any summer wedding you attend!Milan Cut Out Ruffle Maxi Dress,                         Main,                         color, Ivory Floral

4.) Leith Racerback Dress / $29. This is my tried and true, go-to summer wedding and event dress. I have worn it countless times in the pink color!! Charity events, weddings, out on the town, birthdays… you name it! I recently ordered the navy pinstripe and wore with gold jewelry and wedges for an engagement party. If you don’t already own this dress, I suggest ordering it in at least one color for the summer! It comes in tons of color options. At $29 and free shipping you can’t beat it! I wear a size small.

Accessories that I wore with each dress:

Leith Gold Strappy Heels / $59. True to size, reasonably comfortable for the style, gorgeous fit and color.

Taupe Wrap Heels / $48. True to size, very comfortable, and so cute. Get so many compliments on these!

Chelsea 28 Clutch  / $32. This is the same designer and similar style as the clutch I am carrying-which is sold out right now! Love this option though.

A couple of other dresses (both free shipping!) I was going to order if those didn’t work are:

NSR Coral Tie Dye Chiffon Minidress (also comes in blue!!) / $78. This is the first dress by NSR that caught my eye. If it is anything like their other dresses, the color and detail of this dress will be WAY better than it shows online!! I love chiffon dresses and LOVE tie dye! The shape of this dress is so flattering. If another occasion comes up, I will be ordering this dress. I also really love the blue color- I couldn’t decide which image to use!! Great for summer weddings.

Off The Shoulder Dress / $52. This dress has excellent reviews and comes in several more colors! I have seen it on some other bloggers and it is SUPER cute on!! Great for outdoor weddings.
