Tis the season for marital bliss! And awesome wedding guest outfits. June is wedding month, although for those of us that reside in the Pacific Northwest, June is a mixed bag as far as the weather is concerned. Ever hear of “June Gloom?” Well it’s a thing here and is as real as it gets. So June usually isn’t the top month of choice for local weddings. However, my friends took a chance against the normally dismal June weather, and had a lovely farm/barn wedding up in Whidbey Island on June 10th. I took the opportunity to plan for an appropriate outfit, but I’m tired of wearing the same old stand-by to my friend’s weddings…the floral dress. Don’t get me wrong, I love floral dresses, and dresses, and florals, but I wanted to mix it up and do something different for a change.
Instead of buying a new outfit, I shopped my own closet (for once). I pulled out my fun ruffled white pants, and paired it with a nude off-shoulder top. I took some of my etsy-found enamel brooches and placed them on my blouse. Because the weather is so unpredictable in June in Seattle (hello 80 degrees and sunny one day, and 55 degrees and rain the next), I brought along my beige shawl coat that I had previously decorated with the floral brooches. I brought out my beloved Gucci Marmont bag, and added gold chunky heels and gold jewelry. Luckily for the bride and groom, the wedding and the weather turned out to be blissful. Xo Kelsey
