Hey friends! My friend over at Flappery Co. shared this post on how you can create a perfect flapper look. Oh, and while you are at it, see more of her fabulous posts on style, decor and more!!
I hope you’ve been enjoying some gorgeous weather. When the temps rise, the first thing I think is what can I wear that will keep me cool? So today I want to share some summer style tips with you to keep you looking cool as a cucumber.
Style Tip 1: Wear loose clothing. Think flowing dresses, maxi skirts, A line tops. Cool colors verses darks. I say reach for cool colors during the day & save your darks for the evenings. Cool colors do not absorb heat and thus will keep you feeling refreshed.
Style Tip 2: Wear natural fibers. Invest in cottons, silks, or linens for summer months. They let your skin breath.
Style Tip 3: Break out those open toed shoes and sandals. I can’t wait for summer to arrive so I can wear my favorite shoes!!
Style Tip 4: Stay hydrated. I know this seems like a no brainer, but sometimes we get busy and forget to drink enough water. It is especially important to get enough water during warmer weather to keep our skin and complexions healthy.
Style Tip 5: Sunscreen. Wear it! I am the first to admit, I do not slather the stuff on like I should and some day it WILL catch up to me. Skin cancer is NOT pretty and I know all my girls want to stay pretty.
Style Tip 6: Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Believe it or not, squinting due to bright sunlight, increases your chance of fine lines around the eye area.
Style Tip 7: Go easy of the fragrances. Just a spritz during warm months is enough because as your body temperature rises your fragrance will grow stronger.
Hope these little tips help to keep you nice and cool this summer. Have your own summer style tip to share? Leave it in the comment section below to share.
As you may already know, the color authorities Pantone, announced Greenery as the color of 2017. This vibrant yellow green invokes images of nature’s first foliage. Use it as a neutral and mix with other spring colors or alone and it becomes the showstopper.
At first I was intimidated by this color wondering how in the world was I going to wear it? Mr. Michael Kors leaves nothing to guesswork. This gorgeous printed dress below in shades of green, white and blue are all I needed for inspiration. I love the belted vest!
What if you are still leery of wearing such a bold color? You can simply incorporate it into your wardrobe via nail polish or accessories. Essie Nail Polish is one of my personal favorites because it is 5 Free which makes it safer for you as well as the earth.
Maybe you would like to bring the outdoors into your home. Home decor has a great variety of ways to add Greenery to your home.
Pantone says Greenery is “symbolic of new beginnings” and indeed Spring to me represents a fresh new world full of beautiful possibilities. I hope my post inspires you to embrace this color and would love to know how you are using it in your own life. As for myself, I few surprises up my sleeve. But you will have to return to see how I am using Greenery.
