Summer Fashion Essentials

Summer is all about make the most of wearing the least. In the summer, I like to keep my fashion and beauty routine simple. A little mascara, a little lip gloss, moisturizer and I'm out the door. The same goes for fashion. That means it's easy to get dressed in the morning and a delight to lighten up. With these four favorite summer fashion staples on hand you are ready for any summer adventure.

Four Summer Style Essentials 

  1. HavaianasLet's start from the bottom--my footwear of choice in the summer is a flip flop. I have indoor and outdoor pairs and I favor the Havaianas for their style and sturdiness. The fresh teal color called "green leaf" is my favorite. 
  2. Colorful Cover Ups: Since we're talking beach and summer, I can't help but include my all-time favorite coverups from Trina Turk. These tunics look great paired with a bikini or shorts and are always my go-to when packing for the surf and sand. You can't go wrong with these bold bright prints. 
  3. Sunglasses:Finally nothing says classic summer style like a great pair of aviators. Maybe I still have a thing for Tom Cruise circa Top Gun/1980's (pre-Katie Holmes naturally), but I think these glasses have a cool gender bending appeal. Like I borrowed something from my super-cool boyfriend. Try the Ray Ban original aviator. 
  4. Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh: the light feeling lotion helps keep sun-parched skin healthy and fresh. When I smooth on improved Vaseline Total Moisture my skin feels great and all the dryness is gone. Perfect for after a day at the beach.

Vaseline Total Moisture

Great Summer Skin

With all the bare minimum fashion that we wear in summer, we all want great skin. When I smooth on improved Vaseline Total Moisture my skin feels great and all the dryness is gone. Hydrating formulas infuse moisture at the top, core and deep down layers of surface/dry skin. Don't believe me? Vaseline did a bit of research and found that in a blind survey, 82% of consumers said they are "Likely" or "Extremely likely" to buy Vaseline Total Moisture on their next shopping trip.

When I step out of the shower, I rely on Vaseline Total Moisture to lock in the moisture my body needs. The Aloe formula offers a light feeling formula leaves skin feeling healthy, light and fresh for 8 hours.
