Dear fashion gurus of the Internet:
I need to know what to wear this weekend to Fleighund's wedding. I haven't been to a lot of secular ones, so I don't know the protocol. How formal is this likely to be? It's an afternoon, outdoor event, near the water, with a luncheon to follow. It's been very warm lately, in the 80s during the day, so I don't know if my "Jackie O" outfit will work. It's probably exactly appropriate but it's also fully lined and makes me very warm. I wore it outside, to another wedding, in January, in The Rockies and didn't feel the need for additional protection from the snow.
Do I wear it anyway? Most of my dresses are black or black based - of course, so is the suit - am I going to look out of place because everyone else will be wearing pastels or florals? I have skirts and blouses, but I don't think they're really wedding worthy. Plus, I need shoes to match and most of my formal shoes are, you guessed it, black.
I can go shopping but I need a direction to start looking in especially as I'd have to do it alone and not have Tarzan's opinion. Lend me your wisdom!
This is me, asking your advice.
