Coral and Gold Dress
I've had my eye on this coral and gold dress for about a month now, and I've been wanting to style it for a late-spring early-summer wedding ever since. It's a bit of a departure from my normal style, (primarily because I'm usually not one for a high-low hem!) but it has really grown on me lately! I can just picture a wedding guest mingling at at a wedding reception with a glass of champagne in her hand wearing this dress and getting compliments the whole time. It seems perfect for a spring or summer wedding, a destination wedding, a hotel wedding, and really any wedding in a warmish climate.
To get fully in the summer spirit, I added some white accessories to go with the gold dots throughout this gown to give it that beachy, summery look, while still being polished. The dots remind me of the patterning in two of my other favorite dresses :this periwinkle one and this mint one, but the tank style neckline top is a bit more wearable, and the high-low hem and fabric make it work for both daytime and evening. Happily, I have a few weddings to attend this summer and this dress might just be on my list of dresses to rent for some of the summer weddings I'll be attending.
