I’m not sure about your climate but here in NH it has been pretty hot and sticky this summer. Chances are, where you live it’s the same or dare I say it, worse. (I’m looking at you Florida.) So I’ve been thinking about things I use in the hot summer months to help me stay comfortable without sacrificing my style or sanity and I have a few of them to share with you today!
Keep on reading, and I’ll show you how I #BringComfyBack to summer!
Dress The Part:
During the summer, I am all about breezy, flowing dresses. They help me beat the heat while still looking cute and stylish. Most styles are pretty easy to dress up or down, and it’s even better when you find ones that you don’t even have to wear a bra with! 😀
Also, I have recently discovered the joy that is Skimmies Shorts to wear under my dresses. They are a super soft, stretchy mix of nylon/spandex/cotton and I can’t live without them! They help prevent chafing and sweaty thighs which makes me a happy and comfortable gal. They also come in a short length for shorter dresses/skirts.
Keep It Simple:
On the really uncomfortable humid days, I like to keep it extra simple with some easy up-do’s. A boho twist with a headband or any type of braid are usually my go to styles. Anything that lets me avoid the torturing heat of the blow dryer is fair game!
I do feel most confident when I am wearing makeup, so I like to wear it year round. However, when it gets hot outside I like to keep my look simple and fresh. A couple of my favorite products in the summer are the Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder to help set makeup and keep shine at bay, and the Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Gloss which is the most cushy and comfortable I’ve ever worn!
Pack Some Backup:
NOTHING makes me more comfortable during summer (or really any time of year) than being dry. Ever since I’ve had kids I have definitely needed some help in that area and I have relied on U by Kotex products to get me through. They are just what I need for light days during that time of the month or anytime in between. I love that the Curves liners have such a comfortable fit on my body and I really appreciate that they are individually wrapped for easy on-the-go portability!
