Summer wedding style

As graduation season comes to a close, wedding season is just starting to pick up.  But if you know that you won't be the one in white, it's difficult to find the most appropriate outfit for a loved one's big day.  I was inspired by The Black Tux to help you get one step closer to solving your wedding guest dilemmas.

Ladies, summer means that it is time to let your brightest colors shine!  The more colorful the dress, the better.  Remember that metallics are considered neutrals, so throw on some metallic, diamond, and/or pearl accessories, and let your dress do the talking.


Dress: Tobi / Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) / Necklace: J.Crew Factory



Gentlemen, the women have Rent the Runway, and now you have The Black Tux.  The nuances of men's fashion can be tricky, so it's best to turn to the experts.  Use the guide below to find the style that best suits your event (pun intended) and then head over to The Black Tux's suit and tuxedo rentals page to see how close you can come to out-shining your plus one.

Beach essentials

For my friends still in school, the senior spring break trip is something to look forward to from the moment they set foot on campus.  For me, spring break is a thing of the past as I work tirelessly in my first big-girl job.  However, I am fortunate enough to belong to a family that loves to travel, especially south of our northeastern "frozen tundra," as my mother calls it.  Last weekend, I made the trip down to Florida, and even though I've only been back in New York for four days, I can't stop sifting through Tripping.com's Florida rentals page, trying to plan my next vacation to the sunshine state.

Over the weekend, there was plenty of time for soaking up the sun, so I had my beach essentials with me at all times.  It's possible that I still haven't unpacked in the hopes that I'll be jet-setting off to one of these Florida rentals in the near future...



  • A mobile charger to make sure I always have my phone ready to take pictures and play music
  • A speaker and headphones (beachside dancing is a must)
  • Hand sanitizer to get rid of sunscreen-covered hands on the go
  • A great pair of sunglasses
  • A book I can get lost in

Sunglasses season

The calendar might say spring, but certainly the thermometer does not.  In New York, we were lucky to have one 60-degree day this weekend, and thanks to Warby Parker's latest sunglasses collection, I was prepared for those gorgeous rays of sun that are such a rarity for northerners in April!
