It is that time of year…wedding time…and, from your emails, it seems to cause angst among readers, as well as me! My biggest challenge is what a women over 50 wears to a casual wedding!
I often wish I was in the dark at night weddings, because I select garments which do not bring that much confidence. But, I have changed my attitude recently about weddings. Since, most of the ones I attend are casual, outdoor, country, Texas weddings, I am now a fan of wedding pants. I recently showed to you this look I wore to an outdoor wedding….
I liked it and felt confident, cool, and comfy in my own skin. I love the flowly, wider legged pants many women are selecting for weddings now.
So many women of a certain age still wear sleeveless dresses…honestly, some of these outdoor weddings can get really warm. My daughters was in June and the temps were 108! I am currently looking for one or two beautiful kimonos to wear to weddings over sleeveless dresses. I think it is easier to find the kimonos than the dresses with sleeves. I want to feel confident at weddings. It is one place where we see people or family from our past and it only makes since that we want to look and feel our best. The addition of pants and kimonos to my possibility list has really helped me to breath easier….I already confessed to you my difficulty with dresses. Now. let’s go see what JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE is recommending, and then come back and share with us what you like to wear to weddings. We want to know!
