3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

My Favorite Beauty Products for Summer Travel


I recently went through an airport security line, and despite my best efforts, had to have my cosmetic bags independently screened. Though I did manage to fit every bath and beauty product in my carry-on purse. There are several beauty products I never travel without in addition to some new ones I've been excited to try this summer. Most of them are for the sake of saving space, while others like my new e.l.f. travel makeup kit (pictured top left) are for special events in which I need a lot of makeup options in a small case.

For keeping my skin healthy on the go, I couldn't do without my exfoliating cleansing brush. I typically have to use a medicated facial scrub to ward off breakouts, but the Clarisonic is great for cleansing no matter which cleanser I happen to have on hand while traveling. It's also great for exfoliating, so if I need to skip my fancy retinol cream for a week, it's no big deal. At home I typically don't use makeup remover; I like to use my gentle soap, but when traveling (especially in heat and humidity), I love to have disposable makeup remover cloths on hand. My motto when traveling, and in life really, is you never know!

As far as makeup goes while traveling, I always take a bronzer compact. Before I go on vacation, I have visions of leisurely applying makeup in front of my hotel mirror after a luxurious bath, but in reality I'm usually thinking ah screw it! I just want to swipe on some color and get out the door to have some fun. With bronzer, I just swipe some onto a blush brush and apply it to my cheeks and eyelids in a matter of seconds.
