So… I searched and searched, finding a lot of too frilly or too simple numbers that didn’t quite make the cut, until I landed at Zara and found this pretty perfect wedding guest dress. The structure of the dress, the cut-out back, and the flair of the skirt immediately put me in the necessary dancing mood.

Which, of course, prompted me to climb up on a roof and jump around while Rupert took photos… as one does. ;)

  • Love this! I always get so hesitant when it comes to wearing patterns with any white on someone else’s wedding day and feel like there is such a stigma even though it’s not like the whole dress is white. This makes me feel like it’s way more socially acceptable now than I thought in the past!

    • Hi Kayla, Thanks! Yea, this dress is so colorful that I think it definitely falls in the safe zone. I do think “the rules” are less restricting these days as well, but I still wouldn’t show up in a white gown. haha :)

  • This dress looks so much better on you than on the ZARA model. ;) Would never considered buying it by only seeing it online. ;)

    Really, really lovely! But I must ask, what colour of lipstick are you wearing?! It compliments your skin tone perfectly :)

    Much love from Calgary

  • you look so lovely, fresh, and chic in the dress! love that its from Zara and inexpensive. do you know if it fits true to size? love your blog and I just put in an order for some of your amazing serving boards at a sunny afternoon! thanks!

    • Hi Janet! Thank you so much for the kind words and for the A Sunny Afternoon order. :) Ok the dress fits quite small to size. Definitely get a size up if you are on the edge. I could BARELY squeeze into a size small. (and there is an extra small that I couldn’t even fit over my head unzipped) I hope that helps!
