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…

Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Perfumes


A fragrance is such a great gift for a special someone. It's substantial but not too expensive, depending on which kind. And the good ones come in such pretty bottles. For an incredibly unique perfume, Immortal Perfumes pictured above, offers a combination of beautiful scents and rich, romantic history.

My personal go-to fragrances tend to be the Victoria's Secret perfumes. Scents like Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria's Secret come in such beautiful packaging, though I'm partial to the scent of VS Pink and VS Sheer Love.

A fragrance can serve as a sentimental gift. With scents like Lollia In Love, Lollia makes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion. If it isn't being given as a romantic gift, for example, a lotion and bath soap set is much more suitable. For a nice sampling of the different scents, try this Lollia Little Luxe Gift Set.

Jo Malone Cologne Collection Set of Five Travel Size in Box

Back when I cleaned houses for a living (yes, I was a maid), I had a few wealthy clients, and these luxurious women all had one thing in common when it came to their bathrooms - they each had a gleaming silver vanity tray covered with several expensive bottles of perfume. And the one brand that each of them seemed to always have on hand was Jo Malone.

So, while I have no idea what any of the Jo Malone London perfumes smell like, it's something I've wanted, because it's a brand I associate with luxury. And I love that they have beautiful matching candles. I think of all the Jo Malone London scents, I'm most interested to try the Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede.

These rollerball perfumes have been a favorite of mine because they're more affordable, but also because they're perfect for travel. Whether it's for a weekend away, or simply for day to evening, I always keep one of these in my purse. So many perfumes are now available in this functional mini size. When it comes to Tocca rollers, this Tocca Pamper on the Go Stella set is perfect for something like Mother's Day.

Tocca is another perfume brand I associate with luxury. I see it every time I'm in a girly high-end boutique; it always catches my eye. Like most luxury fragrances, it comes in a variety of scents that combine florals, musk, and fruity elements.
