French Fields Gown

Moody floral dress

The family and I headed to Arizona last weekend for a wedding! Typically, I’d allow myself ample time to primp for such a momentous event, but our varying schedules meant I was running around town up until 15 minutes before I needed to leave the house. During the hustle, I googled ‘easy up-dos’ and found this braided up do tutorial which really helped save some time in the getting-ready department.

Outdoor weddings are generally less formal than the indoor variety, (Did you read about the black tie wedding I attended last year?) but I still opted for this floor length French Fields Gown. It can get chilly in Arizona at night, so the extra layer underneath was a life saver.  Here are some similar floral, maxi dresses that would be great for an outdoor wedding (or any other event this spring/summer):

The next wedding I’ll be a guest at is also outdoors and I’m thinking this dress may be on repeat. How many weddings are you attending this year and will you wear the same dress twice?

    You are looking so fabulous in that gorgeous gown! I’m such a fan of the dramatic and this dress is perfect for a wedding! I would totally repeat a dress to a wedding especially if I won’t see the same people again- just switch up the hair, different makeup and maybe another bag..voila!

    That dress is beautiful! I wore a similar cut to a black tie event last year, and I loved that I could sneak flats on underneath. 😉 I wouldn’t blame you for wearing it twice!

    Always, Anita

    You look stunning!! I LOVE what you did with your hair. Such a pretty braid and still simple enough that it doesn’t fight with your outfit. I love the pattern and bow of your dress. Such perfect wedding attire, for sure!
