*This post highlights the perfect dress for a wedding guest and features an item that was gifted to me for a product review
Want to hear something crazy? As much as I’ve written about my upcoming trip to Cape Town, South Africa, I’m nowhere near prepared for it. Time really flies! I have so much to do before I go and so many things that I need. I’ve wasted too much time and need to get caught up. The one thing I definitely have squared away is a dress. I’ve always had more than my fair share of dresses. It’s not always easy to find the perfect dress for a wedding guest though. There’s some thought that has to go into it. For one, you have to pay attention to color. As a wedding guest, you should never wear white. That color is reserved for the bride. Other colors to stay away from are black and red. Who would have known there were rules to being a wedding guest? It’s also important to keep in mind the time of year the wedding will be taking place. You wouldn’t want to wear a long sleeve dress in the summer would you?
Although it will be winter in Cape Town when I go, the temperatures will be in the 70s. That’s perfect for the Illusion Overlay Flare Dress by Betsey Johnson that I’m wearing today! Betsey Johnson’s dresses are always bright, frilly and fun! The vibrant pink color of this dress provides a great hue for the scenic backdrop of the sunset wedding my friend is having. The lace underneath the overlay adds just the right touch of sophistication and elegance. I also love that this dress is modest. Wearing dresses that are overtly sexy is a huge wedding faux pas.
