I’m not sure if you’re ready to hear this, but there are only a few weeks left of summer. I know, technically the season goes well into September, but I’m talking about the flip flop wearing, ponytail donning, grab your favorite t-shirt dress summer. Speaking of, I’ve been loving the simple frocks this year. The white one I wore to the beach a few weeks ago is from J.Crew and also comes in pink and charcoal. I opted to dress it up for a morning out with fun sneakers and a go-to necklace, but was all flip flops and a beach hat by noon. Mom pro tip: buy your daughter a sunhat that is slightly big on her for half the price of an adult version, and wear it anytime she takes it off, which is basically all the time.
The summer face is also just the easiest, and I am so glad to see my makeup bag get lighter for a few glorious months. I’m really loving Maybelline’s The Glo Down metallic eyeshadow (just $4!) for simple, one-color eyes, and Mac’s Shy Girl lipstick for a dreamy coral beige color that hits the mark this month. And if you frequent your Mac cosmetic counter, don’t forget about their recycling program: 6 empty cartridges = 1 free lipstick of your choice!
Enjoy these last weeks of summer!
