Outfit Planning: Summer Weddings

Simply Be Skirt Wedding Guest Outfit

Simply Be Skirt Review

Cami // Skirt // Bag*

It might seem like a distant thought, but summer is on the way and this year, we've got quite a few weddings to attend throughout the summer months. After our wedding last year, I'm so excited for some more of my closest friends to get married too! Usually, I'd opt for a dress, heels and clutch bag as my classic wedding guest outfit, but with so many weddings coming up, I feel like I need to mix it up and try something a bit different. Cue, flat lay style outfit planning for the up coming season...

I found this gorgeous Joanna Hope pleated maxi skirt and started wondering whether this style could become my new go-to wedding guest staple. I paired the beautiful metallic rose gold maxi with a simple white cami top and a chunky necklace. It feels just dressy enough for the day time, especially with the fluid metallic fabric, but light and floaty enough for a warm day too. If it's a bit chilly though, I'm thinking of pairing this look with a leather biker jacket for a bit more edge. I can see this becoming a favourite outfit throughout the summer - I don't think it's just for weddings either, I can see this coming out for slightly more dressy parties or events throughout the summer months too.

I love this camera bag, it's the perfect size for fitting everything you need for a full day at a wedding, with a cute tassel detail adding for good measure too. Your makeup top ups, purse and phone fit perfectly inside this cross body bag - a style of bag I haven't purchased in a while, but perfect for a wedding dance floor. You need to keep those arms free!

What's your go-to wedding guest style?
