Springing into Wedding Season!

So there is something about knowing I have two very different weddings in the next few months. One is happening down in Mexico, that has a fun casual vibe, and one is a very fashion forward event. So what do I do to mix it up and feel cool in both places? I headed to Hiptique because they are my one stop shop for all thing fancy and casual. I mean their bathing suit selection is another story….but that is coming next month.

Hiptique jumpsuit for a wedding

Let me start with being fashion forward, because that is not in my total comfort zone. This jumpsuit is pretty much amazing, and from one of my favorite lines Michelle Mason. For me, it is about making a bit more masculine by adding a blouse under it.

Also, if I am going fashion forward, the hair in a big bun does the trick, I mean I actually feel really high fashion!

And now to my comfort zone, which means a wedding in Mexico that screams for a long dress.

This is me, mid dance having a blast, and realizing I can dance the night away in this floral dress from Harshman. Not to mention my normal go to is a messy braid that will last all night long!

Also, the back of this dress is totally my style, and guess what, this girl can get away with some converse chucks with it. But…yes, even if I have a fashion forward wedding, at the end of the night I am putting on some Nike Cortez kicks, like the ones from Maria Sharapova!Nike Cortez

The Black Tux 

When it comes to weddings, we tend to forget that it is not always easy for men to decide what to wear. The Black Tux is about making renting simple. For most of us woman we take this business seriously, but on the flip side, we know our men are just a couple steps behind. Why not make renting finally simple in one step.WeddingGuestStyleGuide (1)

With Black Tux, they are reinventing suit rentals. Men just simply select, measure, try on, and return. They even have created a simple wedding guest style guide from casual to chic. For men, this is a simple one stop shop to look trendy and polished.

Some of my favorite looks are below, and if you are a woman, don’t fret, their guide also gives us a little guidance on what we should be wearing as well.

Beach Wedding




The Black Tux was founded in 2013 by Andrew Blackmon and Patrick Coyne, longtime friends who, while preparing for Andrew’s wedding in 2011, saw an opportunity to offer men an alternative to traditional tuxedo and suit rental outlets. After their experience renting for Andrew’s wedding, they decided to explore different ways to improve the tuxedo rental process.
