Each September, when my kids go back to school, I often call it my “back to School” too, my reset, my reboot, my new beginning, my new year! As I start to put away my summer staples and replace them with my fall transitional pieces, I am instantly warmed with the thoughts of fall approaching, the holidays, yummy flavored coffees and the magnificent colors that come along with the fall season.
It’s Fall ya’ll ! What does that mean? Well, for most of us around the country it means we have another amazing month of lovely weather before the leaves fall from the trees and the pumpkin spice lattes are in full swing! I have recently relocated to Southern California so “fall” looks a bit different for me compared to the east coast! No matter where I live, the one thing that seems to stay pretty consistent is the necessity for transitional wardrobe pieces! I have a section in my closet where I keep my “transitional pieces” and each season, I add more to this part of my closet.
The summer season is here and for me, that means no fuss no muss hair! When it’s so hot outside, all I want to do is tie my hair up and not think about it all day. I have recently had a bunch of breakage (one of the bummers of being a blonde for over 20 years)…it happens! My hair is fine and I have to color it at least once a month. One of my new years resolutions was self care and this included taking better care of my hair.
Guess what time it is?!? It’s time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Woooo! This is the best time of year to upgrade your closet with some fabulous new looks. Here are some of my favorite products from various categories:
Tinted moisturizer just might be the best invention ever! A cream that moisturizes and provides coverage for uneven skin tones!? Yes please and thank you! I have been using Elta MD tinted SPF moisturizer for years because it provides coverage as well as protection from harsh rays.
It’s strong enough to wear all day at the beach and it also provides enough coverage so you don’t have to apply any other foundation.
So many companies make a tinted moisturizers with SPF but here are a few of may favorites!
I love matching sets, especially when they are made from a chic summer knit! A bold bright hue mixed with a fab summer tan is where its at! Any outfit that is sold as a set is so easy to wear, no need to worry about mixing and matching. A matching set in a bold bright color or pattern is one item you need to have in your summer wardrobe!
Glowing summer skin is always a must for summer! With that being said it’s always important to take care of your skin! Sunless tanners are the best way to get that fab summer glow all year round without having to risk damaging your skin from the hot summer sun! Heading to a beach vacay and don’t want to burn but want to look like a local upon arrival!? I have got you covered! Here are some of my fave summer glow body bronzers!
Summer scents are the best scents! I love fresh, light and floral fragrances that remind me of being on vacation by the beach! I have been using Jill Sander SUN every summer and sunny weather vacation for over 20 years!! It’s honestly my favorite perfume of all time! There are so many amazing light and airy perfumes for summer that it’s hard to choose just one! I wanted to share with you a bunch of my favorites:
