Spring Wedding Guest (Cocktail Attire)

Wedding season is upon us (or here, not sure when it officially starts) and a couple of weeks ago we left the baby with my mom and had a night out celebrating the wedding of friends #parentsnightout. I had just received this dress from Chicwish and knew it would be perfect for being a spring wedding guest!

Quick “behind the scenes” story of this shoot: As a working mom trying to keep this fashion blog running, I have started to bring along my good camera wherever I go just in case the opportunity to shoot my outfit presents itself. So as we we were walking to the wedding reception in beautiful Coronado, I saw this area and looked at my husband with puppy eyes and said “would you please take pictures of my outfit?” (honestly I thought he was going to say no because he had just said how hungry he was and that he hoped we hadn’t missed dinner), and even though he rolled his eyes, he said yes! Now picture me handing him the camera and running to the spot and doing like 10 poses in a row in a matter of 5 minutes!! When I got home and downloaded the images, I realized that it looked like I had scouted this location with the lavender colored plants matching my dress or that a professional photog took them. Point of the story: Sometimes unplanned shoots are the best + my husband does a great job taking my pictures (even if he pretends not to like it) and I am appreciative of him doing this for me to let me continue my "hobby" of blogging!

Back to wedding attire...Unless the invitation says black tie, my go-to’s for weddings are cocktail dresses especially in a nice pastel color or lace as can be seen in my previous "Spring Wedding Guest" post here. I feel like they are elegant and are way more comfortable than a long gown. Plus I like to stay away from the wedding colors because I once bought a wine colored dress for a wedding and had to run to the store to exchange it the day-of when I realized that it was very similar to what the bridesmaids were wearing! I would have literally looked like the 8th bridesmaid *eek!*

*Sizing note: It runs small so I got one size bigger because my chest area is bigger right now.
This weekend I have a black-tie event to attend so I will be sharing the outfit next week! If you want to see it and the party action, make sure you're following me on my Instagram stories!
