STYLE GURU BIO: Haylee Powell

Hi there, fashion lovers! My name is Haylee Powell and I am a sophomore at Middle Tennessee State University majoring in apparel design and minoring in well, who knows yet! One of my favorite things in the whole entire world is a wedding! I promise you I am not a hopeless romantic by any means, but I do love all of the decorations, dancing and of course the fashion! One of the main struggles I find is, what’s appropriate to wear for these little shindigs. Let’s be honest, no one wants to upset the bride on her wedding day by accidentally being way too over the top with your outfit.

That’s why I personally like to stick to more muted tones with my dresses like this one here. I love this dress because it has the right amount of everything. If the wedding takes place in a church you’re all covered but it also just the right amount of “zing” to it so you don’t end up looking like a nun! Now, if it’s an outdoor wedding, you might want to consider bringing along some cute little sunglasses to help you out. I know you definitely want to be able to see the bride and groom during the vows, so these can be rather important.

For shoes, this is where it can get a little tricky. I absolutely love a hot pair of heels just as much as the next girl, but when dancing is involved it never hurts to bring a pair of flip flops!
