As the days get longer and the temperatures rise higher, we inevitably find ourselves marking more and more weddings and summer parties on our calendars. This general uptick in social gatherings means that many of us are scrambling to scrounge up something stylish to wear to each occasion.
You may have already seen on my IG feed that my younger brother got married on Saturday, and my whole family is off to England this week to celebrate with friends and family in Oxford. I’m excited to experience a place that is so important to my brother and new sister-in-law (YAY!!), and I think everyone is really looking forward to getting some quality time together.
I figured this would be the perfect time to offer some style inspiration as you get ready for your own impending wedding seasons, so I’ve rounded up the contents of my suitcase that I’m bringing with me on my trip across the pond. Whether you’re a member of the bridal party or tagging along as a plus-one, weddings require more than just a great dress to wear on the dance floor. Here’s what I’m bringing along to celebrate my brother’s big day(s) in style.
