Suiting Options

I've been thinking about a summer "suit" for a wedding I'm attending in August.  The standard dress route does have its conveniences, least of which is the better match for warm weather.  BUT, formal-ish dresses can be such a pain in the a** sometimes requiring shape wear or weird bras.  Plus, a wedding(and a Catholic one at that) is usually a 4 hour (minimum) affair and I think wearing pants would be way more comfortable then a tight, fitted dress.  So I've made a purchase from Zara.

These pieces were not shown together, so they may not actually match up, but it's a risk I'm willing to take.  Of course, wearing white at a wedding is no longer such a taboo, but I do have reservations about it.  So I also picked up these trousers:

I'm thinking instead of having a matched trouser and jacket I could go with these fancy-patterned pants and pair them with my bright blue blazer from Jcrew Factory, last seen here. My order arrives today so we'll see how everything fits and feels when I get home. Possible fashion show may occur.
