What to Wear to a Semi Formal Event + $100 7 Charming Sisters Giveaway!!

My Favorite Semi-Formal Outfit  by fashion blogger Walking in Memphis in High Heels


We've already had one semi-formal wedding to attend this year, and Leighton and I will be in New York this week for fashion week with quite a few shows and parties to attend.  It's not quite as often that I have a semi-formal outfit to wear, but when I do, I like to make sure I am prepared.  I'm sharing the rules below of how to choose your semi formal outfit and show up to your event perfectly dressed.  I always say you would rather show up overdressed than underdressed!

1.  A LBD.  I prefer ones that are comfortable and have a hemline of at least to the knees or below to keep it classy.  = )

2.  A Classic pair of heels.  My go-to shoes for a semi formal outfit are nude, black or metallic heeled sandals.  They are such a great staple that I reach for most anytime I have an event to get dressed up for.

3.  A small bag or clutch.  The last thing you want to do when showing up to a semi-formal event is to have a huge big shoulder bag draped over your shoulder.  A smaller bag will help you to look even more put together and dressier.

4.  Statement jewelry.  I love throwing on 1 or 2 statement jewelry pieces, but this is especially true for special events.  They really elevate the outfit and make them stand out.  I recently received these pretty tassel earrings and tassel bracelet from 7 Charming Sisters, and I love how they complete my semi formal outfit here.

As much as I love all the delicate and dainty jewelry we keep seeing everywhere, I have always been a bigger fan of statement jewelry.  I just love wearing a fun bold necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings that really makes a statement.  This is especially true now that I'm a mom.  I might only grab 1 or 2 pieces of jewelry, so I want to make sure they really stand out and take my semi formal outfit to another level!  That's what I love about 7 Charming Sisters.  They are a website that specializes in statement jewelry, and they are actually affordable too.  As a special treat, I am teaming up with 7 Charming Sisters today to give one lucky reader $100 to shop their site for some great statement jewelry.  To enter, just use the widget below.  What is your favorite piece of jewelry from 7 Charming Sisters? What is your go to semi formal outfit? I'd love to hear it in the comments below!
