Living in Texas it's essential to wear light-weight clothing during the Summer because we can have weeks of scorching hot days of 100 degrees or more. That is definitely one of the reasons I love this jumpsuit because of the breathable fabric, plus the romantic side tie and it has pockets!
Even though I love fashion, I try my best to be realistic and reasonable when shopping. I'll ask myself questions such as "Where will you wear I this? Is it worth it? Do you love it?
Even though I love fashion, I try my best to be realistic and reasonable when shopping. I'll ask myself questions such as "Where will you wear I this? Is it worth it? Do you love it?" I've learned that if you don't love it in the dressing room, you most likely won't wear it. So try everything on and ask yourself those same questions when you're shopping, believe me, it saves you lots of time and money.Lately, I’ve been obsessed with using the finger coil technique to create defined curls. It's super quick and easy and is great for any curl girl. Being that it's extremely hot and humid in Texas majority of the year, it's essential that I keep my hair moisturized with heavy butters to fight the frizz. Since I’m growing my hair out, it’s been a great way to blend in my longer curls and keep my short cut looking fresh. I usually wash my hair the night before and it while it’s damp, then let it air dry overnight. Once my hair is dry I unravel the coils, then pick my root to add some volume and definition.
Here’s what I use:
Since I prefer to wear neutral tones, it was a must for me to add a pop of color with my accessories. Pom poms are one of Summer's hottest trends and when I saw these sandals I knew I could wear them with multiple outfits since it has so many colors and I knew it would be a good investment.
One of my fashion rules is buy clothing that is transitional and can be worn on a variety occasions. This look is a great example of taking your look from desk to dinner effortlessly. If you love my look as much as I do you can get my jumpsuit and earrings from BeeHive and my sandals are from Target.
What's your go-to Summer style? I'd love to know.
