I’ve had a number of questions about what to wear to socially-distanced Baptisms, small weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and the like. The subtext here is that things feel a lot more casual when you are standing six feet away from your cousins in a backyard or watching a baby be Baptized from across the street or attending a courthouse wedding. Below, sharing a few favorite picks for special occasions in the age of coronavirus, all of which would look just right with a pair of flat sandals (heels and the outdoors don’t mix):
SUCH A SPLASHY FIND (ORIGINALLY $450, MARKED DOWN TO $133!!!! — SEEN ABOVE IN A DIFFERENT PRINT)
THIS ROSE PRINT DRESS WITH A TOPKNOT AND A RED LIP = 100
FOR A COURTHOUSE WEDDING, SOMETHING LIKE THIS FEELS APPROPRIATELY SOPHISTICATED AND CONSERVATIVE
PROBABLY MY BEST ZARA FIND EVER (WHICH IS SAYING A LOT BECAUSE I HAVE LIVED IN MY SMOCKED LORETTA CAPONI-ESQUE NIGHTGOWN DRESS ALL SUMMER, WHICH YOU CAN STILL SCORE NWT ON EBAY)
I OWN AND LOVE THIS FLORAL WITH ITS DRAMATIC BLUE GROSGRAIN BOW
THE DRESSIEST OF THE LOT BUT STILL TOTALLY WEARABLE IN AN OUTDOOR SETTING…ESPECIALLY WITH DARK SHADES! — AND DID I MENTION THIS IS $60?!
THIS DRESS ONCE COST OVER $1,100 AND IS NOW MARKED DOWN TO $229 — I LOVE LOVE LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT; REMINDS ME OF JULIA ROBERTS AT THE POLO MATCH IN PRETTY WOMAN
EQUAL PARTS FLIRTY AND FESTIVE — LOVE IT IN THE SHIMMERY BOTANICAL PRINT FOR EVENING AND THE PUNCHY FLORAL FOR DAY
If you are the bride herself having a private ceremony to tie the knot (my sister will be doing this in just over a week!), a few super-pretty LWDs for a more casual affair:
THIS COVERED-BUTTON SALONI, WHICH IS JUST DESTINED FOR A TOWN HALL WEDDING
SWEET LITTLE THING (PERFECT GETAWAY CAR DRESS)
There are many more chic bridal finds here. I update this post routinely!
Finally, if you are actually attending a slightly more formal occasion — THIS LBD IS AMAZING. And I rarely wear black! But I just might need that!
