Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: What To Wear To A Birthday Dinner

It’s Thursday! And I’m serving up more fabulousness with today’s Style Suggestions.

Trina writes, “Hey Dolls! I have two very exciting events coming in about three weeks. My father in law is turning the big 5-0 and he is a riot. The place selected was his favorite “City Island” in New York City. I need a comfortable yet chic outfit for this occasion. The twist is that a few hours earlier my brother in law is having a baby shower at church. I am in desperate need of an outfit conservative enough for church and an outfit casual chic enough for dinner later on that night. I love a black and white mixed with blush for spring. I also love denim jeans and leather jackets. Please help!”

For a 2-for-1 wardrobe option, slip into a printed wrap dress uplifted by a pair of trendy cutout booties. A sparkly necklace and a soft pink lip and matching nail lacquer option give the look a feminine touch.

Since it is still a bit chilly in New York, opt for a pair of white skinnies topped by a Topshop gold flake knitted jumper. Swap the heels for a printed flat and throw a pair of sunnies in an over-sized tote.

Dress up a pair of jeans with a monochrome grid blouse, a black origami blazer, and a pair of Schutz Fiorenza sandals or a comfy striped flat.

Grab a black clutch and a beaded collar necklace to complete the look.

For a pretty in pink ensemble, pluck a pleated midi skirt, a skinny tailored blazer, and a white jersey top.

Mix prints with a L.K. Bennett shoulder bag and a pair of snake printed single sole heeled sandals to add some depth. And for a dash of shimmer, choose a Kate Spade Ready Set Pearl collar necklace and a pair of retro shades for the final touch.

Well I hope these looks give you the right combination of casual and chic for both events. Wishing you lots of fun with your kin folk. Until next week fashionistas…ciao!
