Hi everybody! Welcome to http://www.tailoredandtrue.com!

This weekend I was so lucky to attend a beautiful wedding for my brother and sister-in-law at my parent’s house in Maine. The pair is perfect for each other, and we had a blast celebrating with them during a lovely outdoor wedding with perfect weather. You can see my Instagram for a few shots from their big day! This outfit I wore to their rehearsal dinner on Friday night.
I wanted to look properly festive but given the outdoor venue, I didn’t want to be overly formal. Pairing this cotton tee with the striped maxi skirt helped to achieve that balance. This maxi is great for warmer weather, since the light fabric allows the breeze to hit your legs and it doesn’t trap heat. And while this may seem like a no-brainer, I have to mention that wedges are the perfect option for dressing up for outdoor summer events. Stability and style, all in one. I will admit I’m not always a fan of the platform look (I think sometimes it makes feet look disproportionately large), but something about the espadrille fabric catches my eye in a good way with these and balances the proportions, and these wedges are quickly becoming a summer wardrobe staple for me.
I hope you all enjoyed the first day of summer and that your warm weather wardrobes are ready to go! Thanks so much for stopping by!
For me, this weekend symbolizes the start of summer! And happily, the weather in NYC this weekend has been gorgeous! Here’s to a bit of sunshine, a long weekend off from work, and a healthy dose of thankfulness!
