As you’re reading this Cesar and I are in South Hampton, NY showering, primping, prepping and preparing for my brother’s wedding rehearsal dinner! Over the last year you have read about engagement parties and bridal shower style, all leading up to this weekend. For their rehearsal dinner (hosted at a gorgeous winery), I will be opting for this pleated floral maxi I found at Nordstrom a few months back. It fits me like a glove and with it’s fully lined interior, it will be perfectly comfortable for the evening.
Admittedly, I got all dolled up weeks ago when Lydia was in town to shoot this outfit. Knowing full well that this weekend would prove too busy to shoot the dress, I wanted to be sure you had all the details for your own wedding season. In short, I am in love with this dress. It feels incredibly etherial when worn and drapes beautifully. While I would have preferred a v-neck style, i’ve come to the realization that maxis are simply never adorned with my favorite neckline.
One thing I did want to note is that this dress does run slightly large. I’m wearing a size 8 here (typically a size 10 dress) and it zips wonderfully. The lining isn’t too snug over my hips and I will be wearing it this evening with zero alterations.
I might be changing up the accessories for tonight but this is an idea of what I will be pairing it with in the future. Nude/metallic accents for Summer and for this particular evening rehearsal dinner, I might be changing out the shoes for the ones seen here, adding black accent jewelry, and a belt like this.
Have a wonderful weekend and if you’re on Instagram be sure to follow along on the wedding adventures with me, and my brother’s very own wedding hashtag: #HHWedding!
