It’s here, Aunt Leslie, what you’ve been waiting for — Mom edition of “Guest of the Wedding!” Graciously brought to you by my FAVORITE model/mom, my mom. She was fairly patient and let me dress her in some creative but classic and EXTREMELY comfortable looks to wear as a guest to a wedding.
First, classic black. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Black is classic for a reason. All you need is subtle accessories in metallic and an LBD can kill as a go to for a wedding. Check out how she did in her new Micheal Kors dress we found at Marshall’s for a steal! The boots dress it up and keep it comfy and warm for those tricky winter weddings.
Next we take a sharp left into RED! This long-sleave Calvin Klein is a snazzy knit. I love it with the red necklace and lip. Nothing says classy lady about to get down on the dance floor like this red look.
Red isn’t the only color out there. A lot of times we think about pastels and think perfect for weddings. But once you hit puberty, pastels in any large amount can be tricky to pull off. In this nicely structured periwinkle dress, my mom reveals how powerful the the simple sheath can be — add a pashmina for warmth (moms are always cold) and rock some must have nude heels and you are set for the spring wedding.
And, finally, when you want to add a little sass to your look for the wedding nothing beats leopard print. My mom scored this Merona dress from Target and has got lots of mileage out of it. It’s classic and easy and can be quite sexy. I like it jazzed up with the red accessories.
And there you have it, guest of the wedding — mom edition. In the immortal words of Miley Cyrus, we can’t stop and we won’t stop…. (hope you could hear her nasely singing of that line as you read it), which means of course there is always more to come when it comes to guest of the wedding posts… (Who knows who my next victim/beloved friend or family/model will be!)
