What to Wear: Lake Tahoe Wedding

A couple weeks ago, Anne wrote in with a request about an upcoming wedding up at Lake Tahoe. "The wedding is apparently ON the beach and not too fancy but I figure what is a wedding if not an excuse to dress up?" Agreed! Here's my suggestion: 

Dress - This dress is so pretty online and - when I spotted someone wearing it on the street - even prettier in person...which doesn't always happen with Anthropologie. Black and red chevron dress for $198.
Belt - Add a nice red belt from DVF.
Sandals - Wedges are a must for the sandy lakefront beaches, and these Nine West sandals are cheap enough on sale that you won't mind if they get muddy.
Clutch - A simple clutch in turquoise and gold for $80.
Earrings - Garnet and gold drops.
Bracelets - A set of basic gold bangles.
Pashmina - Bring an inexpensive ivory pashmina from Cost Plus as a layer if it gets cold.
Sunglasses - A pair of aviators from Target.

There is no such thing as an "office kaftan" - It cannot be done. But, incidentally, I could really go for a formal kaftan from Dubai - here

Love this dress SO much! I ended up in flip-flops instead of cute wedges though, it was very casual. Thanks again for your fab last-minute advice!!
