As Wedding Season Continues...

You may be wondering, what the heck am I supposed to wear to all these amazing outdoor weddings in Wisconsin or wherever you may be. And we don't blame you! Keeping in mind the heat, sweat marks, grass, bugs, etc. makes dressing for a summer wedding in the midwest a wee bit tricky!  Here are some guidelines to help you pull together just the right outfit.

I must warn you. There is quite a bit of coral. Like almost every other one. But what can I say? I'm a little bit obsessed with it right now!

Keep it light and flowy: You won't have any sweaty pit marks in this baby from! I would wear this to a wedding in San Diego. It would have been perfect for my friend Kari's wedding- overlooking the beach at a beautiful venue, but not actually in the sand.

The color: This little blue lace number (I apologize, I cannot find where it is from) will definitely not show any sweat and the shape and texture make it sexy and perfect to bust a move on the dance floor!

Make it a maxi: I'm dying for this dress. Love the color combos and the maxi scoop neck is an essential this summer. No muss, no fuss, but still completely stylish.  You'll definitely stay cool in  this one which is perfect for a beach wedding in the sand! You can find it at

Light and simple + sequined belt/sash= fancy: I would wear this one to a fancier wedding perhaps at a nice resort. The light colors and the free flowing fabric are perfect for the heat.

Go with chiffon: This is a silky chiffon blend from's bridemaid collection. One shoulder is comfort at its best and the flowy skirt will keep you comfortable on the dance floor all night long. It also comes in a variety of fun colors.

Go with the flow: This Rainer Cascade cocktail dress from is everything you would want for a summer wedding in the midwest. The sleeveless sheath shape with the ruffle detail and the  trendy short to long bottom makes this dress just the right blend of simple and just fancy enough. Dress it up or down and wear it anywhere!

Ladylike cap sleeves: offers this pretty and preppy dress perfect for the big country club wedding of the summer. The cap sleeves allow for your armpits to breath and the skirt is beautiful pleated and not restricting at all. The thin belt makes the perfect ladylike addition for a prim and proper affair. 

Wear a color: Especially a color like this one and get crazy and wear some brightly colored shoes too! really knew what they were doing with this Khloe lace cocktail dress.  Again, the shape and the sleeve of the dress allow for maximum comfort. Nothing tight on a hot summer night!

Try not to steal the bride's thunder: But honestly, hard not to in this one. shows us you can be sexy and ladylike as well as comfortable if you slip this one on. It's definitely on the fancier side but still light and flowy so I would wear this to a resort or another nice venue with heals but I think if you paired it with some beautiful flats you could wear this to a more beachy, laid back wedding.  Heck, I'd wear it around the house if I could. 

Alright! I hope that helped all you beautiful ladies looking for the best of the best for this summer's weddings!  Let me know your fave!
