We're currently in the middle of the Summer wedding season, meaning many of us guests are having to think about what on earth we are going to wear - bearing in mind not to wear white or upstage the bride. It's hard enough finding a good wedding outfit and some may argue it's even harder if you're petite! However, I can assure you it's not...
...So for this post I wanted to showcase a petite wedding outfit I put together for a friend's recent wedding reception. I always think a dressy dress is a typical wedding guest choice, which is fair enough, but if you follow my blog you will know that I'm not the biggest fan of dresses. Therefore, I wanted to wear something a little different which wasn't typical 'dressy', but still pretty and elegant.
Having already decided I didn't want to wear a dress, I opted to make a skirt the focal point of the outfit. I chose a high-waisted, fitted pencil skirt, with an amazing colourful kaleidoscope print, which I just love. I paired a nude coloured cropped bralet with the skirt and finished off with my favourite rose gold ankle strap heels (how could I not wear heels to a wedding reception!?). To be playful, I added my Tea & Tequila avocado clutch bag, which has been featured in a previous post. Depending on how I'm feeling, I'm not always big on adding jewellery as I much prefer to style my hair and do slightly more intense makeup (slightly being the key word!). Therefore, I felt there was no need for jewellery with this wedding outfit, but you could always add a gold bangle or simple necklace or earrings. Depending if it's a little chilly, I would always suggest taking a simple shawl to wrap around you.
I was really happy with this petite wedding guest outfit and received lots of compliments from the other guests. What's your favourite look for a wedding?
