Since it’s starting to actually feel like summer here in London (FINALLY!!!), I’m sharing a fun summer sun edit!
An easy-breezy, white midi dress like this one (or this one) always looks effortlessly chic! The light color and loose fit will also keep you cool. A cute headband like this one will take your summer whites to the next LEVEL! Great…now I have “Level up” by Ciara stuck in my head.
If you haven’t already seen it on my Instagram stories – I’ve been lusting after this ribbed bodysuit. I love the fit of a ribbed tank/bodysuit that has some stretch to it! And this one is super versatile!!! I want to wear it with denim shorts, a flouncy skirt, boyfriend jeans…you name it! I’m obsessed with the white version, but it also comes in beige, which will transition nicely to fall with some layers.
Don’t forget to protect yourself from the sun! Whether you’re laying at the beach or chasing your kids around the backyard, sunscreen is key! I use La Roche-Posay anti-shine facial sunscreen every day. I’ve been wanting to try this one too because it was named the best overall facial sunscreen by Business Insider in 2020. In addition to your sunscreen, if you’re looking for a great light coverage BB cream for the summer, try this one! I received it in a Birchbox and I’m obsessed. It gives you a dewy glow and evens your skin tone. I used my entire sample and need to restock! Give yourself a little extra protection by adding a stylish hat into the mix. If you’re floating in the lake, this affordable straw visor might be more your speed. Lastly, throw on some cute sunnies (like these) to protect those beautiful eyes!
I know that many people (myself included) had summer plans canceled due to Covid-19. While this is totally frustrating, there are still lots of socially-distant, fun activities that you can do! For instance, you can hit up your local park or beach (assuming they’re open) for a picnic date night. You can use a traditional picnic basket, OR this amazing picnic backpack. The backpack will be perfect to take on a morning hike, and once you get to your destination, just pick a spot for a picnic lunch! If you’d rather lounge in your backyard, this inflatable pool will be great for the whole family. If you don’t have kids, it’s long enough to fit a floaty – so you can lay back and soak up the sun with a cocktail…or two.
Make the most of your summer! And stay safe!
