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.

Frozen Pineapple-Kale Smoothie



There is no need to feel guilty over ice cream when you can enjoy a fruity frozen treat. This tropical pineapple kale smoothie is loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, as well as vitamin E and Calcium if you use almond milk. And it's so delicious! This green smoothie really just tastes like a pineapple smoothie, so it's an excellent way to sneak in more veggies.

Wal-Mart has recently started to carry frozen chopped kale in large bags for just over a dollar! I put in it everything - smoothies, pasta sauce, rice, soup. It has an extremely mild flavor and doesn't get a mushy texture the way spinach does, so don't be afraid to add it to your own recipes. It's all the goodness of greens without actually tasting them.

This particular smoothie doesn't have a lot of protein, so if you want to have it as a recovery smoothie post-workout, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder, like this Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder, Sweet Vanilla Bean.

INGREDIENTS
*serves up to two
  • one cup almond milk (or whichever milk you like)
  • half cup freshly-squeezed orange juice (about 2 large oranges)
  • one banana
  • one cup frozen pineapple
  • one cup chopped frozen kale (Fresh is fine too, but I find that the frozen kind blends very well and of course make the smoothie more cold without having to add ice.)
