We’ve all been there, yes? You’re on a lovely beach, ready to dip your perfectly polished pedicure into the salty clear blue seas, and then you realize you are not Bo Derek in 10. Your hair is not naturally straight and it’s not immune to the curling power of water. You have natural kinky hair that will fight to cling together in tight coils if the slightest ounce of water touches your tresses. However, the good news is there are ways to prep your hair to prevent sun, chlorine and salt damage, so you can maintain your beautiful natural glow all summer long.
During the spring & summer, because there are so many activities going on, I find myself needing to quickly get dressed more often than not. To do this without sacrificing my style, I prefer to wear easy breezy one-piece clothing options. Jumpsuits are my ideal style choice. They lengthen my frame and make me look pulled together and polished without much effort and now that the 70’s inspired culottes are in trend, the shorter version is great for petite ladies who love the one-piece style too.
Every Spring, like many I’m sure, I have the desire to purge my closet and start fresh. I tend to start rebuilding my wardrobe with shoes, because I believe it’s the foundation of an ensemble. Have you ever had a cute outfit planned, but realized you didn’t have the right shoe to match, which changed the outfit direction completely? My point exactly. So, even when I buy shoes, I tend to gravitate to more neutral and metallic colors that can compliment different outfit choices. Besides, if I’m being completely honest with myself, I’m more of a barefoot on freshly cut grass type of girl. Sometimes, shoes can be restrictive and slow me down (i.e. heels). Therefore, I search out shoes that are cute, neutral and comfortable.
