Mommy & Mini Summer Wedding Style Collaboration

September 13, 2016


Today I am sharing a collaboration with Ada on how we styled with our girls for a summer wedding. It’s been a while since I have been to a wedding and I definitely haven’t been to one with kids. Because of the latter I took up the challenge to find a way to get my girls dressed appropriately for a wedding, including myself, to where we kind of coordinated.



My mom is the queen of buying my girls dresses, call it a hobby and love if you will. My girls have dresses that are fit for a flower girl (I am telling the honest to God truth) and because of this I don’t let them wear the dresses often (because these are all white satin nice dresses). I had a time trying to find dresses for this post as most of the dresses are either too formal or too floral and almost casual.  I finally settled on these dresses for the girls.

Nevaehs’ dress is a blush pink color with intricate sequin bead detailing and scalloped bottom, where as Elizabeth’s is more satin at top and tulle at the bottom. I would have added ribbons or bows for their hair, but my girls have never been real big on hair bows and clips. Sandals were the last touch as it’s summer and sandals, flats, little girl heels, what have you are appropriate even with these fancy little dresses.



I went with my red Lularoe Nicole dress and choose white accessories to compliment the girls outfits. This red dress is perfect for that transition from summer to fall too as it’s a warm dress made from quality material here in the United States, which is AWESOME!

I knew I wanted to wear flats or low heeled shoes and these white shoes fit the need. For weddings I think it is important to wear comfortable shoes (or at least bring an extra pair) in case there is dancing or walking to reception or chapel grounds.  In fact these shoes inspired the finding of this statement necklace that I rarely wear and I think these add a whole other element of crisp and freshness to the dress.

Below you will find a few collages and notice that Ada and her daughter miss Vivian look adorable. Ada is styling an equally lovely red dress. See what she has to say about their looks by checking out her blog here.

Tiffany brings back some nostalgic moments for me in this post. How adorable is this backpack purse and style.


I am a denim and chambray kind of girl. So when I see a fall weather appropriate chambray dress I can’t help but swoon. See post from Shannon here.


I found Sandy’s post on “How she does it all” a good read and I appreciate her honesty and effort for all the good work she is doing: being a mama, blogging, working and having a full time job. I did a similar post to this here.


Jessica styles a silk scarf 3 ways. Great inspiration right here.


Leah looks amazing in this shift dress for fall. Check the post out here.

    Beautiful mommy and daughters. Beautiful ladies inside out. Beautiful post. I am so glad we did this together. While all three girls steal the show in their satin and chiffon mini ball-gowns, the two of us look quite ravishing in red, I must say. =)

  • amy September 13, 2016 at 9:09 am

    Oh my gosh, you look amazing in that dress! You need to buy more stuff from that company, because it suits you so perfectly! Gorgeous! Love the necklace too!

  • jodie filogomo September 13, 2016 at 9:14 am

    And look how both you and Ada wore red!!
    I think it’s nice your mom buys the girls nice dresses! And they might as well wear them before they grow out of them. I had one dress as a kid that I wouldn’t wear until it was too small and then I was devastated!! Taught me a lesson!!
    I love how you took a normal dress and really gussied it up with that necklace—I would have never known it was a LulaRoe dress!!

    You all look beautiful! Your girls looks so whimsical, and you are killing it in that red dress. Great color on you!
