Garden Party

The month of June often means outdoor weddings and parties to attend. You need not panic when that invitation arrives!

If the party will be held during the heat of the day in a garden or near a pool you can look polished and appropriate in a sheer blouse over a near matching tank and white pants of any style. Choose comfortable to walk and stand in nude shoes and an eye catching clutch. You will be cool and confident. 

Another option would be to wear a hat with a tank dress and a sheer flowing tunic. A simple style hat with a brim no wider than your shoulders is always a good choice. Remember to keep all of your other accessories minimal when wearing a hat. A small clutch bag worn on your shoulder or arm leaves hands free for outdoor events where food is served.

I hope these suggestions give you some ideas for outfits that work well for events you may be attending. 

Thank you so much for all your kind comments on my last post. 

I hope you have a lovely week!

Love the hat with that outfit. I have always been so suspicious of wearing anything near white at a wedding.
