My Five Summer Beauty Essentials

I really hate wearing makeup at the beach. Maybe it’s because I spent years reporting in the hot and humid weather and sweating in a full face of makeup. If I’m at the beach with friends or even for a blog shoot, I stick to the basics. I totally understand wanting to put your best face forward, so I’m sharing my five summer beauty essentials. These items will help you look pulled together but won’t make you feel cakey or like you’re wearing a full face.

Why I Love Linen for Summer

Growing up in Texas, and living in Nebraska and Virginia for a few years, I’ve learned a few things about how to dress for the summer heat. The first rule is to wear breathable clothing. I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the fabric of the garment you’re buying. Polyester, which is what most clothing is made of nowadays, is not breathable. This means it’ll trap your sweat and make you hotter – a vicious cycle. That’s where linen comes in.

How I Keep My Lips Soft :: My Reset Routine

My lips are one of my favorite features. I love how they can express how you feel whether you’re speaking or with the lip color you’re wearing. I communicate and am a storyteller for a living, so it’s no surprise I love what our lips can do. However, they can be sensitive and if we don’t properly care for them; they will rebel by flaking and peeling. Even though I have run a very tight ship, I take time every night to properly care for my lips. This is how I keep my lips soft. There’s nothing wrong with setting aside time to reset, rebalance and put wellness first.  This way, whether I’m going for my signature nude or feeling bold with brighter colors, they are soft and moisturized. Since summer is officially underway, it’s even more important to properly care for our lips. I’m excited to partner with L’Occitane to share my reset routine for my lips.

Summer’s Must-Have Earrings :: Two-In-One by Kendra Scott

I’m a big fan of statement earrings. To me, they are the perfect accessory and I’m very rarely caught without a pair of earrings. Earrings draw attention to your face and ultimately your eyes. I love how they can add a pop of color to an outfit, perfectly enhance an elegant look or just be a fun detail. Personally, I put a lot of care and thought into selecting the perfect pair of earrings for a look. It doesn’t matter if it’s a t-shirt and jeans look or something a little more elevated.

Teal Off the Shoulder :: The Wear Everywhere Summer Dress

If you are looking for a romantic, feminine off-the-shoulder dress, look no further. This super soft and flowy one is absolutely perfect. This truly is the wear-everywhere dress because it can be dressed up or down. Feel beautiful whether you’re wearing it with sandals in the morning, basking in the afternoon sun, or going out on a warm summer night. The smocked waist and sash add texture to this dress while the three-quarter sleeves give this dress an elegant feel. I’m partial to the vivid teal color but it also comes in light lilac, too. If you have any weddings to attend, wear this and you’re sure to be a stunner. The off-the-shoulder neckline isn’t going anywhere, so grab this piece and reach for it all summer long.
