Our East Coast friends got married in Maine last weekend so we flew on red-eye style across the country (don’t worry I had all the wine pre-flight, it was fine) to celebrate them. We had never been to a Maine wedding before so the question was, what to pack? When it’s a sleepy beach town, you want to be cute, but not rock 4 inch heels and lounge-worthy dresses, it just looks like you’re trying too hard. And nobody wants to be that girl.
On Friday we went to dinner and then met the wedding party post-rehearsal dinner. Since we knew it would be a low-key bar, and you walk everywhere in York Beach, I went with flats and a more casual dress. No sense in schlepping around in heels on cobblestones! I liked the long sleeves because it was chilly at night but still felt dressed up enough to fit with the rehearsal dinner crowd. Pink lips and hoops make it feel retro but modern.

The wedding was at the most adorable church in York Beach, Maine. I wanted something light and fun since the reception was at this gorgeous indoor/outdoor clambake venue, so went with a floral sheath and minimal jewelry. These nude strappys were a great investment. So comfortable (a whole nights’ worth of dancing included!) and they go with anything.
