reader question

Darling reader Tatiana sent us our next reader question, which reads:

"I am going to a wedding in October, the wedding is in Maui. I am having the hardest time finding something suitable to wear. Do I wear long like a maxi? or do I go short and flowy, but there is wind almost always at the beach and I don't want to give any one a show. HELP! What do you suggest?
Thanks for always giving great ideas!"

Okay, so we totally did our homework on this one. We even looked up the weather predictions and averages for October. It looks like in Maui, there is wind 70% of the time {the meteorologist's words, not mine}, and the average temp is {most likely} gonna be between 75 and 80 degrees.
For this occasion {wedding} and this weather {windy and tropical} our suggestion is this: LAYERS. Start with a simple dress in a nice fabric or print. Add a cardigan, because the weather could be unpredictable. For the reception after the wedding, bring a pair of tights to slip on for extra warmth and to jazz up the outfit for evening. With those pearls of wisdom, here are some of our suggestions:

Dress: Ann Taylor Loft, $59.50
Floral Cardi: Delias, $29.50
Belt: Urban, $28.00

Dress: Alloy, $44.90
Cardigan: New York & Company, $46.95

Red dress: Ann Taylor Loft, $79.99
Gray cardi: Old Navy, $26.50

Also. We are practically famous! Ok, not really, but we ARE being spotlighted by the lovely girls over at the lifestyle website The Bella Life. Check it out and give them {and us!} a little blog love. xoxo
