Outdoor Evening Wedding & Fashion Over 50

Two weeks ago on a Saturday evening, the weather could not have been more perfect for an outdoor wedding.  A cold front the night before blew out the humidity and left behind cool fresh air.  Right down to the lightening bugs it was Pinterest worthy in every way. But, a cool outdoor evening presented a fashion callenge.
I have never worn pants to a wedding before, but knowing it was casual and outdoors, for the first time I considered it.  There was a little bit of every attire on the ladies from beautiful lace sheath dresses to long skirts, and, yes, pants.  In fact, the mother of the bride wore lovely cream colored wide-legged pants.
I felt confident, appropriate, and comfortable in this outfit.  The top and necklace are from CHICOS; the FLARE BLACK JERSEY PANTS FROM SMASH+SCOTT; the Italian sandals by Campesina were a MARSHALLS surprise; and the evening bag is an authentic Betsy Johnson treasure from GOODWILL SA.  

And, yes, other women were in pants!

It actually was one of the most fun weddings I have attended in a long time...great friends, food, and weather...I just might wear pants more often!

Keep Smiling Everyone!

  2. Your outfit looks lovely. French women often wear trousers to country weddings.

    1. Then I will feel "very French" the next time I do this! Thanks Josephine!

  3. Fabulous outfit Pam! I frequently wear pants to formal events because I'm most comfortable in flat shoes.

  4. Very stylish and highly appropriate wedding outfit, the necklace is gorgeous
