PRINTED SHIRT AND WHITE DENIM

Summer style in Talbots printed shirt and Old Navy white denim shorts

Blame it on the heat but this weekend was nowhere near as productive as I meant for it to be. Instead of tackling my to do list, I wandered around the neighborhood yesterday in this easy white denim shorts and printed shirt combo. That’s what Summer is for, right?

STRIPED ROMPER AND CHAMBRAY SHIRT

Summer style wearing Choies striped romper, J.Crew Chambray Shirt, and Ruche panama hat

It’s hot in New York City. Like walk a block, sweat a gallon kind of hot. Secretly, I love it.. but it definitely makes getting dressed a challenge. This outfit was a beat the heat winner over the past weekend.

MUST HAVES: SUMMER BEAUTY STAPLES

Summer Beauty Staples

We’re at the point in the Summer when heat and humidity, long days in the sun, pool/ocean/lake dips all have started to wreak havoc on my skin and hair. Here, the products I’ll be using to get me through the rest of the season.

FACE: I typically don’t wear a ton of makeup in Summer, so this lash lengthening mascara and lip balm are my go-to’s. If I want to add a bit of color, I’ll use a thin line of these aquatic eyeliners or a stay all day lipstick. And on newly tanned skin, a hint of highlighter on my brow/cheekbones.

HAIR: If I’m drying naturally, this sea salt spray gives me beachy waves. If I’m blow-drying this smoothing cream fights frizz and softens dry ends. And either way, I use this detangler on the regular.

NAILS: Summer usually wreaks havoc on my mani/pedi but Essie polishes last longer than any other brand I’ve tried. And my real secret ingredient? This instant dry top coat. No scratches, dents or chips and it’s dry… instantly. I never paint my nails without it.

SKIN: First things first, skin protection. I just tried this mineral sunscreen for the first time and it feels like velvet. This serum is great for lightening up sun spots or other damage and this eye repair emulsion.. well I have no idea what that even means but it brightens, firms and reduces puffiness around the eyes. So I’ll just call it magic.

ASOS BUTTON FRONT MIDI SKIRT

ASOS button front midi skirt and Sole Society Burgundy Tote

During the week things tend to get pretty hectic around here (as in work, gym, dinner, blog, how did it suddenly get past midnight?) and so I rely on an easy set of basics that I can grab and go.

THE LITTLE RED LIGHTHOUSE

White embroidered maxi dress and platform sandals at The Little Red Lighthouse, NYC

Just when you think you’ve seen it all in this city (and trust me.. I’ve seen some things), Manhattan goes and blows you away all over again. This weekend, 166 blocks north of our apartment (plus 18 subway stops and about a mile hike later) we tracked down the last standing lighthouse in the city. And it was well worth the trek.
