Around this time I always get the private messages from my fabulous girls looking for a communion/confirmation outfit. Whatever it is there is always a panic about what to wear for these two particular occasions. Is it because its neither a wedding or a dinner and its somewhere in between?..I guess we all seem to put pressure on ourselves for these particular occasions. Unnecessary pressure too, seriously girls if you think hard enough about it, I’d bet you have something sitting in your wardrobe already you just haven’t thought about how to wear it differently.
For example take this skirt in the pic above, this is old about a year or two old. Its a Penney’s skirt a bargain buy and as I have two communions this year to my two equally gorgeous nieces, I’ve had to wreck my brains and wardrobe as to what to wear as I don’t want to purchase something new that I might never wear again! Hence why this skirt was pulled out.
Its a neutral pink colour and can be matched with all different types of other colours, grey’s, whites you name it. I know there is similar skirts available here here, & here. Its a nice colour and the midi lenght is suitable for this type of occasion. The beauty about the colour of this skirt is its always in season, and perfect for summer too. Its always good to have a neutral colour skirt like this hanging in the wardrobe as you’ll wear it over and over again.
I paired it with a lace tshirt I picked up before christmas in Zara. They are still in stock as they are proving to be very popular and go with absolutely everything in the wardrobe. At €17.95 they are so affordable too. You’ll find them here, just make sure you pair them with high waisted skirts or jeans as it is a slight bit short in lenght. Lace tends to look good with everything and this two together work perfectly and are dressy enough for a communion.
The shoes are Savida and old stock but any nude heel/sandal or black heels will work with an outfit like this.
I’ll pull together more looks in the next few days to help you figure out what to wear, I also think girls, skirts and tops are a nice change to wearing dresses for these type of occasion. Plus you have more of a chance of wearing the outfit again be it a top with jeans or the skirt with a different type of top.
Hope this helps and stay tuned for more
Until next time
