Layering Pieces, Fav Booties & Rehearsal Dinner Insights

I had fun layering with this outfit, though the picture doesn't do it much justice.   The sandstone booties were picked to tie in the lace vest. Honestly, I have to make a concentrated effort not to reach for these booties from Clarks all the time.

They are incredibly comfortable and match with nearly everything! 

I wore this ensemble to a rehearsal dinner with my husband and ended up feeling slightly underdressed upon arrival! You never know these days, but I could have swapped out the booties for a pair of heels for a dressier effect! Like I said, I can't seem to stop wearing them! 

Here's a few tips I received tip from a friend on how to dress for rehearsal dinners and other bigger events...

  • Pay attention to the invitation over what is being served.  (I saw Mexican cuisine and thought casual. Wrong.)
  • You could also look the venue up on the internet to gain extra insight. 
  • All else fails you could go straight to the bride. 

Well, my concerns quickly dissipated once food, that I had no part in preparing, was served. Not to mention the fact that the hubby and I were given an evening free of kiddos.

Extra bonus,  I woke up a few mornings later to find this photo in my IG newsfeed from the Pureple app I use!

They featured my outfit! Now that makes a girl feel better. Thank you Pureple!

How do you determine your outfits for bigger events?
