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. This month, we'??re working with Vaseline to provide you with a summer round up of a few of our summer favorites.
Let'??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. I particularly like the partnership between Havaianas and Baby Buggy. 10% of these limited edition, celebrity designed shoes will be donated directly to Baby Buggy, a nonprofit dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, products, clothing, and educational services for their infants and children.
Since we'??re talking beach and summer, I can'??t help but include my all-time favorite coverups from Calypso St. Barth. 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 a mandarin collar and a few pintucks. Classic simplicity.
With this effortless look, I like to keep my footwear and shoes simple, I do like to add a pop of color around the neck. This summer, I'??m crazy for pops of orange with either white or chambray. I know this necklace would look as good at lunch with girlfriends or for drinks with my dream date (my husband!).
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 Persol Aviator Sunglasses, a sun essential that will never go out of style.
With all these bare minimum fashions one thing is required great skin. First, we'??re using 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. Hydrating formulas infuse moisture at the top, core and deep down layers of surface/dry skin (stratum corneum). 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 that combines pure aloe and Stratys-3 multi-layer moisture complex. It leaves skin feeling healthy, light and fresh for 8 hours of moisturization.
Vaseline Total Moisture lotions are non-greasy and combine Stratys-3 multi-layer moisture complex and pure naturals (to feel good on skin and do good for skin). They are fast-absorbing and hydrating. Find out more about this new product at www.vaseline.us/products
