7 summer fashion hacks to beat the heat
It is hot out here! I use to dread the summertime because of the severe heat and humidity in South Florida. It is unreal, and I know how bad it is in other states too. I have trained myself to like every season by embracing each one in all of its glory and finding tricks to keep me happy.
Face Masks: I love to treat myself to a face mask and glass of wine. With all of the sweat and heat produced on our skin, it’s good to get a deep clean to prevent acne. My favorite face mask is by SKII. They are expensive, and I usually buy them during the Sephora sales (sometimes they go on sale at Nordies too).
Luxury Water: I’m obsessed with Fiji water, I stand by the fact that it tastes different than other bottled water. It’s smooth and crisp. Drinking water keeps you hydrated and your skin glowing. I will spend more on Fiji water because I will ultimately drink more and beat the summer heat. Obviously, drinking any water will do…I’m just bougie 🙂
Glass water bottles: Have you heard about the plastic water bottles creates toxins when left in your car due to heat? Aint nobody got time for that. I like carrying a nice glass bottle with me so that I feel safe if I need to leave in my car. I love the Kate Spade ones (RIP).
Cute rompers: A cute romper makes the heat somewhat more tolerable. Nordstrom has so many that I am obsessed with right now. Another place I get a lot of my rompers is ASOS. They are just so easy to throw on and you look cute and put together.
Iced coffee: Listen, I need caffeine. I can drink warm coffee in the morning because I keep my AC on full blast. However, if I am getting a coffee treat at Starbucks or a local shop I like to make it iced in the summer. Tip for home: put coffee in ice cube trays and use those in your iced lattes to prevent them from watering down!
Breathable fabrics: It make a huge difference when clothes are made from breathable material. The best fabrics in extreme heat are cotton and linen.
Light colors: Dark clothes attract heat. Now is the time to rock all of the beautiful pastels and whites to keep you from attracting too many sunbeams.
