Hi There! Summer is in full swing here in Charleston. I cannot concentrate in this 95-degree heat – how did the southern belles of yore do this in hoop skirts? Like, what if I had to blog in a hoop skirt and corset and no air-conditioning. Oooch. They didn’t even have margaritas back then….
Sooooo, here is what I am loving in this heat:
Do you love OPI Cajun Shrimp, but wish it was 5-free? Look no further for the perfect Clean summer coral: Priti NYC: A Time’s Rose. It dries fast, lasts forever and the color is vivid. I usually do not wear bright colors on my nails (I’m a true classicist: nude, red or vamp, always), but every summer, I have to do coral at least once. You never know if you are going to live long enough to be a golden girl in Florida with coral nails and lips and ODLR caftans, so just do it now. Y.O.L.O., right? Cost: about $15 for 8 mL. Purchase it here.
Ilia Beauty’s Voila is also a pretty, Clean coral, but for lips. It is the perfect pop of color and it doesn’t make your teeth look yellow like so many coral lipsticks do. I am wearing it non-stop this summer. Cost: about $25. Purchase it here.
I usually don’t blog about fashion, but I am living in this One by Pink Stitch dress – I bought it in coral and black. I feel like I am cheating the heat; it feels like I am wearing a light-as-air bed sheet around town. I try to not buy “disposable” fashion, but the price is right, it’s flattering, I can wear it with a strapless bra and I know that once I am over it, I can wear it as a cover-up. No-brainer. Cost: about $85. Purchase it here.
Six months is the best age! I never dreamed being at home with a baby would be so fun (even though it is really hard and I feel like I’m losing my mind a little and I wish I could spend more time working on BB). Full disclosure: I went back to the store and bought this watermelon bubble in the next size up because I didn’t want to part with it. I know what you are thinking: “she is losing her mind”. Whatever, you would do it, too. (I don’t have a link, but it’s by Little English.)
Have a great weekend!
