Shopping | Wedding Guest Dresses

Finding a dress to attend a wedding as a guest is arguably one of the most difficult shopping endeavors the average woman goes through. I'd put it right up there with bathing suit shopping (yikes!) and the finding the elusive perfect fitting pair of jeans. Well, it just so happens that I am a self-proclaimed wedding guest dress expert lol! Why? In short, the year 2013. 

In 2013 I attended 7 weddings in a 6 month period. You read that right; seven! Two were on opposite sides of the country; one of which required taking a float plane to get to, and the other a ferry boat. In short, 2013 was insane and I became very good at selecting dresses to wear as wedding guest! 

Today as we ramp up into summer wedding season, I thought I would share my top picks for dresses that work for a guest at a summer wedding. I have linked them all up, broken down by category, below. 

Last thing - because you don't always want to spend the money on a dress to wear as a guest at weddding, the last category is "rental dresses" from Rent the Runway. If you've never used this service before, it is a great way to get new dresses for one-time events.

Work Wear | Summer Pencil Skirt

I am swooning over this pencil skirt! I have added a number of colored pencil skirts to my wear to work wardrobe the past few years; but this is my first printed skirt. I wasn't sure whether a print could look work appropriate, so I was hesitant to pull the trigger and get one. I am so glad I got this skirt though as I love how many summer office outfits can be created with it

Paired with this white crochet top (which by the way is a very structured material, which I like for work) and you've got an easy summer work day look. I probably wouldn't actually wear my bright pink heels with it to the office, but I definitely would to run errands! 

I completed this outfit with my Olive & Piper bracelets. You *know* my obsession with O&P. If you want to buy anything from them, remember that you can always use the code "LegalLee" for 20% off your order! I have a ton of O&P jewelry, but these two bracelets are definitely my favorites. They add just the right amount of sparkle without being "too much" for a 9 to 5 outfit.  

In other news, I am working on content for the blog for the rest of the summer. It is a busy one (I've already got posts scheduled for the next month!) but I wanted to find out if there is anything specific YOU all want to see. If there's any fashion questions you want answered, or posts you'd like to see, email me or let me know in the comments below!

Work Wear | Printed Dress

Another day, another wear-to-work dress! I realize I have been sharing a lot of dresses lately on LLB; which is odd as someone who has a full blown addiction to these pants haha! But, summer weather definitely calls for dresses over pants to beat the heat while still looking work day appropriate. This printed sheath dress (c/o Boden) is a new favorite of mine for 9 to 5 style.

I love the unique neckline on this sheath dress, and the navy and pink print adds some fun to the otherwise classic silhouette. In general, I really like Boden as a source for work wear that is bright and fun. They are all about the bold prints and patterns. One thing to note if you are shopping from Boden is to double check whether you are on their US or UK website! If you are in Canada you actually place your orders via the UK site (no idea why) so make sure you take into account the size differences (and change the currency to CAD!)

My heels are old, but I found two nearly identical pairs that I linked up below. I love the scallop detailing - it makes a classic suede pump more fun. Plus, how perfect is the pale pink shade for summer?! Big fan. 

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you! I am so excited to spend some time at the beach tomorrow. This girl needs a tan and some chill magazine reading time, asap.
