One of my best friends is getting married soon and for her special pre-celebration we are having a full day of activities. It’s on a Saturday and includes a daytime lingerie shower. Then we are carpooling for a short road trip and doing dinner, bar hopping, and a club. THEN back to the hotel for a strip show. Yeah, a lot!
For the shower, I’m going to be moving and doing a lot to set up and clean up so too many layers will be restricting I think. I want to be comfortable for the drive to DC. For dinner, bar hopping, club — I’m at a loss. I want to be versatile and just be able to switch my shoes and maybe an accessory or two. I also want to be non-fussy so that I can move about easily.
Okay….wow! This is going to be a super fun event(s). Foremost, thank you so much for being so thorough with your request, it really helps. Secondly, due to the number of events taking place, I’m going to post style suggestions over several posts (hence the Part I in the title). So let’s get started with the first event -the shower!

The softly pleated skirt is very flattering. In addition, it allows you to move seamlessly during the shower. The denim top is a great contrast to the soft fabric and the leopard flats add a stylish and modern flair. However, if you want to go with a slightly dressier style, switch the flats to platform pumps and incorporate a chiffon blouse.

I love a good pair of wide leg trousers. Not only are they “polished”, they also are perfect to wear to most functions. Adding a fun print such as “stripes, florals, or polka dots” will keep this look on trend. Now I know you requested flats, however, don’t forget that the majority of wedges add lift not pain.
3. Romper and Oxfords
J Crew crew neck top, $178
Miss Selfridge green romper, $61
Perforated shoes, $45
Tote hand bag, £295
Dannijo silver plated jewelry, $370

Lancome Juicy Tubes – Toffee Pop, $18
Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Shocking Volume Effect Mascara, $30

Out of the sets I put together, the above is the most casual and nondescript. However, the right color choice and statement jewelry will really add pizzazz and usher in your inner style diva I think I can really envision the romper in a soft fabric that will create a classy look.

Lovelies, which of the looks do you like the best?
