Two Style Boards: Wedding Ready & Work/Play

Ready for spring? Nothing announces the coming of spring like wedding invitations! I love getting a little dressed up and a wedding is the perfect occasion to pull out my favorite pumps and go shopping for a new cocktail dress.

We have a wedding next month and right now I’m leaning towards a blush/beige ensemble like this:

Wardrobe, Inspiration, Style Book, Trends, Look Book

This color palette is really complimentary to olive complexions such as mine and the layers make for easy wedding indoor/outdoor transitions. Now that my waist is slowly beginning to make an appearance, I’d love a beautiful cinched-waist dress and casual-ish belt (such a this braided version) to emphasize the return of the non-pregnant stomach. Pair that with suede pumps, gold jewelry and a long cardigan and this would be my perfect outfit!

When not in wedding mode, I tend to run around town in a work-meets-play get-up of dark trouser jeans, slightly dressed-up blouses and comfortable wedges or flats. Pair that with a military-inspired jacket and another slimming belt and I can go from home office to lunch meeting to errand running mom (eek – did I just say mom?) to cocktail hour and feel appropriately dressed for all of the above.

Oh I love this cascading ruffle blouse!

    haha! You made me chuckle with your “errand running mom” comment. At least you’ll look chic while you’re running those errands! I love that cascading ruffle blouse as well. I was already scheming about how to make one for myself before I read your comment!
