Casual Hair Do's
Oppressive heat makes it necessary to get your hair off your neck, which means fun with braids and buns. Plus, this is the perfect time of year to have fun with color and updos for wedding season.
There's something wrong about heavy, matte makeup when it's hot and you're wearing sandals. I prefer a more natural look when it's hot, and I love how so many products let you keep a little bit of shine, but not in an oil slick way. I also like wearing lighter perfume and lip gloss in the summer, and two of my new favorites are pictures below along with the most versatile makeup ever - Benefit High Beam.
OutDOor Entertaining (weak, I know... I ran out of puns)
Summer is the season for having a party in your backyard, and I love when people use fun lanterns for ambiance. I also love, in no particular order: sangria, vintage style swimwear, giant sunglasses, lounge chairs, crawfish, and WEARING SUNSCREEN. Skin cancer is no joke, ladies. You don't want scars like mine.
What are your favorite summer staples? This post makes me want to go outside... if only it weren't raining cats and dogs and hail!
