Summer Blacks: Wedding Guest Edition

I wear blacks year-round, I don't discriminate in the summertime. This is what I wore to a casual summer wedding this past weekend (thank you Aaron for taking these pictures!)

I wore a black shift dress by Ella Moss. This dress has so much sentimental value - it was the first thing I ever ordered from Shopbop over 6 years ago (whoa!). I have worn it so many times over the years and it held up so well. I cannot recommend their dresses enough. They're not cheap but they do not skimp on quality, especially on a more timeless style like a black shift dress. It also has pockets, which is great for me since my hands are infinitely awkward when I'm standing around. 

I paired the dress with a metallic rose gold belt by Nicholas. Sadly it is no longer available but I found a very similar gold one on ASOS - link here. This belt style is so versatile, I think all women need it in their wardrobe!

My shoes are by Jimmy Choo - they were the birthday present I bought myself last year and they are incredibly painful to walk in because they are so high (and have no platform) but the suffering is worth it. I feel like a sexy Amazon woman when I wear them, and that's all that matters, right? :P

What is your go-to outfit when you're a wedding guest?
