I'm going to a wedding in Washington, DC this weekend and I don't know what to wear. It's not a church wedding but is in a very upscale apartment building. My MIL was saying she was wearing a Fall colored outfit. Do I wear long sleeves? How formal do I go? I'm not buying anything new for it, just using what is in my closet. I have lots of long skirts with long sleeved shirts in earth tones but I also have bright summery spaghetti strap dresses that I wore on a cruise. I also have some long sleeved dark green above the knee length dresses. I'm confused! Help!

DC is will be a little warmer than up north especially like where I'm at. It's a cold here today and it will get chilly at night. I would say if it's a daytime wedding where something short sleeve or spaghetti strap and take a wrap or jacket of some sort for the evening.

My first thought on what would be appropriate to wear is a dress that I have in my closet... I'm not sure if you have anything similar but it is a light grey sleeveless (not spaghetti strap) dress with a just below the knee pencil skirt. I'd wear that with a colored wrap to dress it up and make it appropriate for chillier weather.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

I would probably wear a long sleeved dress but that is just my opinion.
