Yes, I have been in summer mode for quite some time, but now it's REALLY summer... and the weather seems to be cooperating with the change of seasons.
The forecast for Tampa today.
Very fitting for the first day of summer...... What do I do when it's hot and humid?
For starters, I stay inside as much as possible.
I have given up the blow dryer and straightener too. I can't get out of a hot shower and then stand under a blow dryer and then use a hot flat iron on my hair. It is just about enough to make me faint! Not to mention afternoon storms and the plain ol' humidity are perfect for curls.
Garnier Fructis Curl Shaping Spray Gel to the rescue. It works. Trust me.
Looking cute takes a bit of a backseat to staying cool.
This is basically my summer uniform.
J. Crew Chino Shorts + Old Navy V-neck T + Jack Rogers
When I do make it outside, sunscreen is more than important. Just from walking around every day, I have tan lines on the tops of my feet from my Jack Rogers!
Remember my summer makeup video? Moisturizers with SPF are key.
I love my Tinted Moisturizer by Bobbi Brown.
Laying out by the pool? My checklist includes: Bug spray (I am a mosquito magnet), sunblock, sunglasses, hat, and WATER.
How are you planning on beating the heat this summer?
