Wedding season is upon us. Are you prepared? Along with wedding season comes the stress of finding the perfect dress and just as important, toned arms. But don’t worry… it doesn’t have to be as hard as you think if you follow some of the trusty fun new trends and arm workouts!
Currently trending are different textures such as accordion pleats and neoprene, according to the always-fashionable R Meyers owner, Cindi Shelby, who also happens to be my awesome mother! Neoprene has come a long way since it first came out and is now quite light. It is a super comfortable fabric that will let you move and get down on the dance floor.
Also in style right now is lots of layering with nudes, whites, creams and blushes. However, if soft colors aren’t for you…think island vacation. Tropical florals like hot hibiscus, or deep-sea water like turquoise and teals. Try out these looks for both bridal showers or weddings and you will be stylin’!

Pretty pastels, neutrals and feminine cuts are perfect for this occasion. Showers are also the time to test out some fun styles that the ladies will appreciate! Jumpsuits are coming out in a big way. Women will appreciate the statement you are making!
Summer weddings call for pretty colors, fun cuts and textures. Bohemian looks are still greatly in style so I love the opportunity to wear flowing dresses. Not to mention how it will come in handy if you get a little too full on all the yummy cake! Only rule is not to wear white!
For a quick arm tone up…
We all know that toned arms are the best complement for a sleeveless summer dress! This workout is quick and efficient. It works the shoulders, back, triceps and biceps. Get the heart rate going with 15 burpees to begin! Do 3 sets and then you’re done! Do three-four times a week for optimal results.
