What To Wear To A Wedding In Newport, R.I.

1“I like to do this thing where I pretend parties are themed even when they’re not,” says Natalie, the woman behind our new favorite fashion and accessories blog, Up The Get Up. “So when an invitation to a summer wedding in Newport arrived in the mail, I couldn’t help myself . . . I immediately started working off of the notion that the dress code was to dress like the surroundings.” Her first source of inspiration? Everyone’s favorite New England summertime blossom: hydrangeas. “In Newport, they are iconic and bloom as big as your head, with petals ranging in hues of whites and periwinkles to cornflower blues with hints of free,” notes Natalie. “Not to mention they make for quite the Insta-worthy photo backdrop.” There’s also a very Americana vibe to this cute coastal city, which mixed with the salty air calls for some preppy, nautical elements. Think stripes, rope knots, and skirts that billow as you twirl. If you can hit that sweet spot that’s a little less Popeye the Sailor gets gussied up and a little more Jackie O. lets loose with a vodka-lemonade, and you’ve nailed that Newport look.
