Summer Wedding Guest Style

I've been blogging so much about our trip and our friends' Punta Cana destination wedding that I haven't mentioned anything about what I wore for the actual wedding!  Well, I believe I've said before in previous posts that I love a good dress!  For me, a dress that can be worn on more than one occasion is the best kind of dress.

I bought this Yoana Baraschi Silk Maxi Dress for another of our friends' summer wedding about 7 years ago!  I kept looking at it and going back to it during the same shopping trip so obviously I couldn't get it out of my mind.  I love those kind of clothes, don't you?  The material, the way it fit, and the pattern on the dress were beautiful and I wanted to wear it again and again!  Oh, and it had pockets!!!  I love dresses and skirts with pockets!  I'm so happy I kept it all this time.  This was actually only the second time I've worn the dress but it still fit perfect, exciting after 2 kids, and the style worked for the beach wedding we were attending.

I paired the outfit with my mother's hand made straw basket from Thailand (thanks Mom!).  I adore anything unique and handmade!  The detail on the dress begged for a simple summery bag that didn't take too much focus.  Similar straw purses I would love with this dress are here and here (in natural color).  Etsy has some beautiful handmade or vintage straw purses that are really budget friendly as well!  Some of my picks would be here, here, and here.  This custom initialed straw clutch is just beautiful and so reasonable so I had to link this as well.  It makes a beautiful gift!

Here are some summer wedding guest dresses I really love:

Have fun dancing the night away!!!
