Ask BB: What to Wear to a Spring Christening

I've been invited to a child's Christening in June. There will be a church ceremony followed by a party. Can you suggest an outfit appropriate for wearing at the church, while at the same time being fashionable enough to look great at the party? —Deb

It just so happens that I attended a cousin's baptism a couple weeks ago and faced the same dilemma. I opted for a floral print dress with a hi-low hem from the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection, white LOFT blazer and wedge sandals. It was a feminine, spring-ready look that was modest enough for the church ceremony while still looking fun and festive for the party.

Here's an outfit similar to mine that might work for you (click on any item for details):

If you prefer, a knee-length skirt and pretty blouse would be another good option. The mix of prints and colors keeps things interesting:

What style advice would you give Deb?

Thank you so much! I love both suggestions. The floral print dress + blazer combination is super chic. Or maybe I'll dare to mix prints! Thank again, Deb

And you can take the blazer off at the party - or leave it on if you find yourself under an A/C vent blasting on "high"!
