Just because we’ve waved goodbye to summer, that’s no reason to ditch the SPF from your beauty bag – especially if you’ve got a wedding to think of. Too lazy for that extra step in the morning? Try Clinique’s SPF30 Mineral Powder Makeup, $55 – SPF and foundation in one, and available in four different shades.
When it comes to your groom, there are few better attire-related ways for him to express himself than neckwear. That’s why the new Barkers x Liberty collection has caught our fancy once again: best known for its floral and graphic prints, Liberty London is a beloved source of tasteful yet expressive point-of-difference attire – in this case ties, pocket squares and bow ties. We love. Bow Ties, $50 each, pocket square, $40, tie, $90.
Pay attention, because this right here is probably the only time you’ll ever hear us say “budget”, “dress”, “online” and “we recommend” in the same sentence. But here we are, introducing Daisy: an online budget dress boutique that we’d thoroughly recommend.

Daisy gown, from $1500.
