We will guide you in the right direction when it comes your outfit and accessories. Think of this blog as your helpful friend when it comes to how to style and dress for your upcoming engagement party (or any party for that matter!)


The Summer Soiree

Think backyard BBQ’s, picnics, a beach celebration or a casual get togethers out on the deck. If you have been invited to a more casual engagement party then look that is all about flowy skirts and cute sandals is a great go-to – and a midi is a fabulous option. The midi is the versatile style that is can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a summery engagement party pair a midi length dress with some cute earrings for the perfect outfit. A floral print midi is always a good option too – especially for any engagement party.
