Yellow Lace Dress
Hello! It’s almost the weekend, and it’s hot and officially summer around here. I thought I’d close out this warm week with something light and airy, and sunny — this yellow lace dress from Lilly Pulitzer.

In my post about little white dresses for showers, I spoke about how I like the bride to have a few a non-white but bridal feeling dresses to wear to pre-wedding events like showers, engagement parties, and the rehearsal dinner. This yellow dress is exactly the kind of dress I envisioned for those events. The lace and light yellow color makes it feel just a little bit bridal to me.
Do you agree? Even though it feels bridal, if you’re a wedding guest, this dress is a true yellow (not cream) so it could also be worn by a wedding guest for an informal daytime wedding, without fear of being inappropriate.
To up the ladylike and bridal aspect for a bridal shower dress, I added lots of gold, pearl and bows, and some blush shoes.
For a wedding guest, I’d tone down the bridal aspect and add a fun accessory color like peach or blush or pale blue to pop against the yellow. If yellow isn’t for you, this dress also comes in a nice cobalt blue or turquoise – also perfect for a wedding guest.
