Fashion Essentials for Summer Days

Summer continues to be hot, hot, hot! I hope you have had time to enjoy summer and take a little break. Right now is the best time to buy summer essentials; the prices are the lowest and there still is some selection left before everything is gone. Buy now things that are timeless, and that you can enjoy next year too – or this summer’s fashion stables in super low prices! Here are some of my beach and pool time essentials. 1. Large hat is a must to protect your face from sun. Forget about tanning your face – it will add ten years to your look today, and twenty ten years from now. Cabana Life hat on sale for $15.99. 2. Summer dress is the way to go. Maxi-dresses are awesome, but I prefer shorter wrap dresses on hot days. Tommy Hilfiger Sleeveless Surplice Neckline Dot Print Sundress on sale for $29.99 at Macy’s. 3. Sunglasses! Check out Fossil Sunglasses, Celia Square on sale $29.99. 4. Waterproof mascara, bronzer and lip gloss are my only three makeups I will not live without during summer. Try L’EXTRÊME WATERPROOF – Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara by Lancome for $25. 5. And speaking of lips – I also like the Tarte Natural Lip Sheer SPF 15, it is vitamin-E enhanced, budge-proof lip tint with SPF 15, perfect for pool/beach days. $16 at Sephora. 6. I always carry an easy wrap for indoors (AC!!) and for colder evenings. I love the Tart Mandy Wrap on sale for $85 at Gilt. 7. For beach: flip flops, for summer fun: espadrilles, but for almost anything; dressy sandal flats like Penny Loves Kenny Jake Beaded Sandal $36 from HauteLook. 8. Invest in a good swimsuit that fits you well. If you want something cute but inexpensive, try the La Blanca Swimsuit, Ruched Tankini Top & Hipster Bottom $55.99 + $19.99 at Macy’s. 9. Fake the tan, it’s healthier for you. For summer glow for face I highly recommend Summer Glow SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer by Borghese ($29). 10. Land’s End Large Colored Zip Top Tote Bag is a must have for carrying your beach/pool essentials with you, a deal for $43.50 – you will use it year after year. , , , ,
