What to wear to a beach wedding where you’re sure to be sitting in 90 degree heat? A breezy dress and simple accessories. When it comes to style, I tend to think less is more, so you can make quite a statement with simple, well-styled pieces. I wanted something loose and easy for the wedding in Sayulita since the temps were high and it was a night full of dancing, so this navy dress from Revolve fit the bill. I had it altered a bit to shorten the straps so it wouldn’t hang quite so low in the front and back, which was a quick and inexpensive fix to make it fit a little better.
I paired it with my over-worn nude sandals and a fun patterned clutch I bought through Stella & Dot a few years ago. You may be thinking I’m crazy to have worn stilettos in a beach setting, but try as I might, I just prefer the look of them over nearly all other shoe styles. I contemplated nude wedges (which are a perfectly acceptable option), but preferred the cleaner look these created. Full disclosure, I’m pretty solid at standing all night in shoes like these, but I did bring a pair of flat sandals for late night dancing and street wandering.
The end result felt beachy, but still elegant and I was cool(ish) and comfortable all night. This dress will be pretty easy to dress down with sandals and a tan bucket bag, so it will be perfect throughout the summer for casual date nights or our regular wine tasting excursions.
