One of my high school besties is getting married in Hawaii this summer and I am beyond thrilled that I'll get to celebrate her nuptials with her. Obviously, I've already started mentally packing (as one does when they've got roughly three months before a trip)--everything from breezy maxi dresses to glittery sandals and even the perfect perfume. I'd like something light and summery, something evocative of the warm island weather, lush tropical flowers, and white, sandy shores. These fragrances perfectly capture the essence of a dreamy, beach vacation.
