Q&A: Bridal Shower Outfit9:00 AM
Haven't done a reader question post in awhile so thought this would be a good one to share!
Hello Tiffany, LOVE your amazing blog. such a fun read! :) I am e-mailing to see if you might be able to help pull a look together. I will be attending a BRIDAL SHOWER in the beginning of July and was wondering you could a look together for me. It's not a lingerie shower and will have grandma's/moms there so I kinda have to be safe w the outfit.. hope you know what I mean. Color - turquoise b/c the shower is over 4th of july wkd Prefer a look that is affordable...maybe from a dept store - Nordstrom/Macys/Dillard's? It can be a dress or a dress pants & top look. w/ accessories. or I am open to suggestions :)
Thanks! :) Graciella
Turquoise is such a fun color for the summer, what a great choice. I wanted to find some cute, fun dresses but were classy as well so picked out two that I thought would be good for you.
Choice #1: The ruffles at the top of this dress make it perfect for a party dress. It makes it totally young and fun without being over the top or too boring. With the bright color and the ruffles, I felt that a neutral shoe would be appropriate to keep the attention on the dress as well as elongate the legs. I added subtle accessories like the diamond bangles and the white watch to give it a little bit of bling but not to overwhelm the outfit. I added the pop of the pink bag so that it would contrast with the dress and the accessories in a good way.
For your hair, I would do slight wave and pin some of your hair back with the cute matching flower bobby pins. For makeup, bronzer will be your best friend for this outfit! Sweep it all over your cheeks and a little on your forehead to give your skin a good glow and don't be afraid to sweep it on your collarbone as well. The blue will help bring out the tan and will look great together. A very simple pinky-gold eyeshadow with lots of mascara should complete the look.
I chose bright pink nails to go with the outfit as I love the mixture of turquoise and pink. Nails are always a great way to accessorize with a subtle pop of color! I added matching pink lip gloss with a soft pink blush and golden eyeshadow. Overall, a very simple but pretty look that really relies on the accessories to bring out the outfit.
