It felt like it would never come, but summer is finally here! SoCal weather has been so cold lately, our infamous June gloom, and I could not be more excited to enjoy the warmer temperatures coming our way. Of course I’ve been thinking a lot about summer foods, my summer wardrobe, and of course summer beauty! Did you catch my recent post on no heat hairstyles that take five minutes or less? Now that I have hair settled, it’s time to move on to makeup! This red-orange shade of lipstick is always my go-to in the summer. I usually reach for a cooler, blue-toned red in the winter, but now that the days are getting hotter, so are my lipsticks! I’ve shared some of my favorite red-orange summer lipsticks below as well as some of my readers’ all-time favorite red lipsticks.
How many weddings are you all going to this summer? 1? 2? 5?! Can you believe this is the first year that I have no plans to attend a wedding at all?! At least as of right now. In one way it feels like a relief, because I remember those summers of weddings almost every other weekend. They’re so fun but, boy are they exhausting. Not to mention expensive! One of the biggest challenges with summer weddings is finding an appropriate dress to wear. You all loved last year’s post about what to wear to a fall wedding, so I thought today I’d share what to wear to a summer wedding. I have 3 tips when it comes to choosing what to wear, plus some gorgeous wedding guest dresses I hope you’ll love as well! This light blue lace dress is one of my favorite options!
It may not be officially summer yet, but in our household it has arrived! The weather has been so beautiful these last few weeks and my family has been taking full advantage. I was feeling inspired, so I sat down and wrote my summer bucket list. I love writing seasonal bucket lists. It ensures I don’t let getting busy get in the way of doing fun, new activities!VIEW POST
