SHOP THE POST
This week the outfit layout might look a little different, but because the packing list from the original post is for a weekend and so small I thought I would try something slightly different. I decided to take each pairing and change it up three ways from super casual, mid, and a little dressy. Kind of like a day-to-night layout with a middle of the range option. So obviously by the selections above you can see that there are more than enough clothes for the entire weekend if you have access to a washing machine. 😉 You can change the looks up even more if you have more accessories with you.
Now as per the original post they will be attending a wedding and she wanted to have an amazing dress. I admitted that I am terrible at trying to dress myself for formal occasions and tried to offer up some suggestions (as seen below). I am more of a when in doubt pair a feminine dress or skirt with a blazer and some heels. I like to scroll through Pinterest looking for ideas because there are always some brilliant looks if you dig enough.
I am also a when in doubt wear black person. It makes any outfit instantly more put together and can make even the most inexpensive piece (for those of us on a budget) look like a million bucks. It is also easy to wear and very versatile. I like the simplicity and ease of an inexpensive midi length, black slip dress, with a velvet or satin blazer, some simple jewelry, heels, and a red lip. But I am a sucker for keeping it simple with minimal effort for maximum effect.
Are you a when in doubt wear black person?
