2015 Summer Beauty & Style Essentials

Being in the South I have a love hate relationship with Summertime.  I love being outside & enjoying the weather but I am not a fan of the heat and humidity.  Go Figure! These are a few of my favorite summer beauty + style essentials that I incorporate into my style sometime almost daily.  

  1. China Glaze Lacquer Neons - I love neon nail polish for pedicures & not so much for manicures.  I love how my pedicures look rocking neons especially after a little sun on my feet! 
  2. Nars Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30.  My shade after a little time in the sun is Seychelles.  I love this product because it gives great coverage but without the weight of a liquid foundation.
  3. Iman Bronzers - Great for women of color with a variety of shades.  I don't always wear makeup so on the days I just want a little glow, I pop this on my cheeks & nose (for a strobing effect) 
  4. Organix Weightless Hydrating Body Mist - This stuff is amazing for adding shine to your skin without the heaviness of a lotion.  Perfect right out of the shower.
  5. Bar Sunnies - very popular this summer and can be purchased both on the highend & low end pricing.  Pictured are Prada Acetate
  6.  NYX Butter Lip Gloss - my absolute favorite lippie they have great coverage, not sticky and they smell like cookies!  
  7. Sam & Libby Sandals - I have these in black & silver and truthfully I did not think I would wear them as much as I do but they are versatile.  I have rocked them with maxi skirts to boyfriends jeans.
  8. Sheer Kimonos - What's not to love about these?  They compliment so many body types and they look great with skinny & boyfriend jeans as well as shorts.  

What are some of your Summer favorite or essential items?  Comment below I would love to know!
