What to Wear to a Birthday Party

This past weekend we celebrated our lil’ lady bean’s second birthday party with a Minnie themed soirée. The colors were black, white and HOT pink…and I just happened to find a dress at my home away from home, Target, that was  perfect for the occasion. The black and white striped and floral print maxi not only featured one of my forever favorite trends, print mixing, but the colors were right on point too. And I obviously had to coordinate with the guest of honor. So, let’s talk about what to wear to a birthday party this summer…

Now when you think about what to wear to a birthday party…specifically a summer birthday party, you want to focus on easy breezy, flowy pieces that you won’t get too hot in. If you’re a regular reader, I’m sure you know what I’m going to suggest you wear…a maxi dress of course! You know maxis are always my go-to summer look. Not only are they ridiculously comfortable, but maxi dresses can be easily dressed up or down too making them the perfect piece to rock at a summer birthday party!

Even if you don’t have a birthday party to attend anytime soon, this maxi dress ensemble could easily become your summer uniform. It’s the kind of look you can run around in while looking completely pulled together. That’s why I love flat sandals almost as much as I love maxi dresses. Haha. Mama’s got to be able to MOVE! Those kinds of mine are quick. Bwah! Who’s with me? Maxi dresses DO look fabulous with wedges, but if I can get away with it, this girl’s rockin’ flats with her maxis. Just sayin’.

    Adorable look! I think my next Jacks purchase will either be a pair of jellies like the ones in your photo or a pair of the wedges 🙂

    I do love this long dress and the shoes.. I feel like wo higher sandals, which I cannot walk in, I trip over the long dress. I think I need fashion lessons.
