What to Wear: Napa Wedding

Formal wear requests are my least favorite, I have to admit. But I'm here to help! Here is Kathryn:
I enjoy reading your great advice on what to wear, your glimpses into California life, and—of course--your Wedding Wednesday features. So…….This should be right up your alley! My husband and I are invited to a black tie wedding, dinner, and reception in mid-May in Napa Valley. We’re so looking forward to it, but I have no clue what to wear.

I’m willing to spend a bunch to look awesome head to toe. I don’t know, $500 + shoes? Only restrictions would be no yellow or orange because those colors make me look sick. Also, the wedding is at 4:00pm in the “Beaulieu Garden…” I don’t know if that’s inside or outdoors. I want a short dress. I’m petite, 5’3”, blonde. Help!
Kathryn sounds like a Reese-Witherspoon-type to me. Let's channel her petite, put together red carpet style for this event.

Dress - This emerald green color of this pleated chiffon dress is gorgeous! And perfect for a blonde and a garden event. The cut shouldn't overwhelm your frame. And it's something that you could wear again.
Shoes - Gray satin is an elegant match with emerald green.
Clutch - A vintage silver clutch stands out from the crowd.
Earrings - Delicate pearl drops from Anthropologie.

Have a great time in Napa!
