Wedding season is certainly in full swing. I feel like every time that I check my instagram someone is posting fun photos from a wedding and the only reason I don't assume that it's the same wedding is thanks to the clever hashtags people have come up with to commemorate their day. With a few weddings on the horizon that I'll be attending I got to thinking about just how difficult it can sometimes be to find the right attire for the occasion. In addition to the perfect dress I'll be showing you a couple of other items that are perfect to have on hand to match whatever frock you may find yourself wearing. In the south the heat is something to keep in mind as you're picking out an outfit (especially in the summer) meaning a dress that is lightweight and flowy is typically ideal.
The Ellie Dress from CROSBY by Mollie Burch completely fits those essentials on my wedding guest attire checklist. Y'all know my love of color and this dress in Georgia Peach/Rose Quartz is the perfect spring and summer color combination. I've always thought that pinks and orange pair well together but the hues of this dress definitely confirm that. As a brand based in Atlanta, Georgia, CROSBY by Mollie Burch understands how to combine fresh, modern designs with comfort and materials that are perfect even on hot summer days. The fun and flirty silhouette of this swing dress combined with its strappy back will surely make a subtle statement at any wedding you're in attendance at.
And as if it could get any better than this dresses style, colors, and modern flair, all of the clothing offered by CROSBY are machine washable which is any college student's favorite words. I always joke that my dresses go to more functions than I do seeing as whenever my friends need an outfit for a certain event my closet is typically their first stop but I hate that they always feel the need to get the dress dry cleaned before giving it back. Don't get me wrong I love getting clothes back clean but I know how much of a hassle getting things dry cleaned can be especially when you're a busy college student. I already have friends claiming this dress for future functions and now they don't even have to take it anywhere other than the laundry room in order to clean it! Another great component of this dress is that it is strapless bra friendly! The last thing you want to worry about at wedding festivities is adjusting your undergarments and with this piece that's not a problem.
Nude heels are an essential when it comes to your closet and I always find myself reaching for this pair for a plethora of formal events I've attended with weddings being no different. The thin straps help to elongate your legs while also ensuring that your heels stay in place all night long. The last essential you'll need before heading to the chapel? Some sort of purse! Cross body bags have always been my favorite and this white one is perfect for summer with enough room to store your phone, some money, ids, keys, and even some lipstick and a hairbrush to help you stay polished even after hours of dancing!
The back of this dress may just be my favorite part. With three straps flowing into the stripes from the snap at the neck it adds an unexpected component that is youthful and flirty while still being completely wedding appropriate thanks to the addition of heels and some bracelets. I think the strap detailing on the back also makes it so that you could pair this dress with sandals for the perfect beach outfit as well.
For reference I am wearing an XS and it fits perfectly! I usually wear a small or size 2 or 4 depending on the piece and an XS worked great in this piece!
If y'all haven't checked out the entire spring and summer collection from CROSBY by Mollie Burch you definitely should as I know you would fall in love with their modern designs in fun prints and color combinations in the same way that I have. They also have some wonderful solid pieces that would serve as perfect basics in your closet that I know you'd find yourself reaching for frequently! In addition to creating beautiful clothing CROSBY gives back to help two different non-profits that help give exploited girls and women the support they need to move forward.
