When it comes to summer weddings, the style options can be plentiful. To share with you a few options, TAGG’s excited to partner up with the lovely ladies behind Marionberry Style and Mix Match Fashion to share with you three ways to dress for a summer wedding. Be sure to their sites to get more details on these gorgeous printed looks (love!).

What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

The dress I’m wearing, a major early summer score from J. Crew Factory, was purchased for this occasion: OMG, we have a wedding/major event and I have nothing to wear! Having great pieces — and I love a color instead of black, particularly if it’s for a daytime event — that can work a myriad of ways is a huge closet helper. I’ve worn this dress for a rehearsal dinner with bold earrings and black strappy heels, and another time with a blazer for an evening work-related event.

As the temperatures rise, good beauty products are worth their weight in gold. Make my skin look matte (yet glowing) even when I’m feeling shiny and sweaty, or keep my fizzy hair at bay when humidity is out of control, and I’m yours forever. So when it came time to find tried and true products, we enlisted 13 amazingly talented + gorgeous bloggers — who often spend their time on both sides of the camera — and, as you can see below, they had no shortage of great tips and product recs for the average gal.  Check out their favorite products and tips to beat the heat each summer!

There is a fine line between dewy and greasy skin.  This may seem a bit pricey for a primer, but I have never used anything that works better for helping my makeup stay-put in the most humid temperatures. I discovered it when we lived in North Carolina and even during the sweltering August heat, I was shine-free all-day long!

I never use this on my lips, but I always use it on my cheeks. Originally it was created for a dancer in the 1970s so it’s made for being active and won’t come off like other blush when you’re outside in the heat!

product: one love organics skin savior balm
I LOVE the savior balm. I use it every single day – and a little goes a long way. You can do lots of different things with it but I mainly use it for moisturizing – and taming some of those little fly away hairs!  ispydiy_edited-1

Obsessed with Bare Minerals original powder foundation. It provides great coverage and stays an all day. It’s a must in my make-up bag!

How to take a truly amazing picture. Love the before and after examples.

These sweet & salty banana chips sound so crazy delicious (and are beyond easy to make).

For a big, big night out, I totally want to try this lash trio tutorial (looks more real than lash strips and way easier to apply than individual faux lashes).

These bloggers are calling these “preg-o” brownies… have you ever seen anything more divine??

Looking for a Passover dessert sure to get rave reviews? Make TAGG’s carmel chocolate matzoh. In just two years, it’s required I serve!

And, these Easter peep-filled s’mores are too cute for words. Promise.

Spice up your photos with this how to edit and save better photos for the web (for bloggers, but useful for all of us!).

Psst: what’s topping our finds of the week?? Be sure to follow our “Wish List” pinterest board to see!

A brief round-up of TAGG’s favorite posts of the week included below. A little shorter than usual because I was hit by some crazy cold, cough thing nearly all last week, and this past weekend went to Disney for a little fam adventure. So. much. fun. Our girl was a bit too young when we took her last year (loved it, just got a little scared), but this time? The look on her face when she met Ariel — and then the look on all of ours when she literally copped a feel (ha, we have picture proof!)!! — was priceless. Totally wiped out now but worth it all. Are you a Disney person? I’m so not a crowds person but seeing it through our girl’s eyes, and riding Space Mountain for the first time in probably 15 years was more fun than I’ve had in a long time. All about creating memories, right?

Proof that added statement curtains transforms every room.

Ankle boots or knee highs? Check out this post to know which to wear when.

Love this “what to wear” read for professional photo shoots; tailored to families but awesome advice for engagement photos, etc., too.

Did you know that reading comments on an article can have a dramatic impact on how you process news and information? Fascinating report shared in the New York Times.

I have been drinking this little concoction in crazy fashion. Have you?? {perfect for St. Pat’s, mind you!

Nine manis for total spring inspiration.

Woah, Aerin Lauder’s office is so much to take in. Every detail feels so purposeful, beautiful, perfect.

PSSSTTT: Giveaway alert! On Tuesday, head on over to London Times blog for a chance to win the dress I’ll be wearing here plus FOUR of my picks for spring from beauty and home decor to inspiration and accessories! Yup, London Times is giving YOU five special treats (nearly $500 value) for Spring… and maybe in honor of my birthday later this month. :)
