This summer was a season of discovery. In the past, I used to just accept my oily skin for what it was and tried to bear with it throughout the hot, humid summer days. This year, I decided to put that lazy habit behind me and start investing in a couple of products that have changed the way and what I wear on my face during the summer. I made some pretty sweet discoveries along the way and have found some of the most amazing gems at Sephora and the drugstore. I’m super happy with my roundup of go-to products for the summer as they’re probably going to become some of my most necessary staples in my regular routine for the remainder of the year.

We’re slowly but surely getting into the hotter degrees of the infamous Texas heat. As the temperature goes up, so do our skirt length in hopes that we can bear with the heat even through the short walk from the parking lot to the front door. Ask anyone, I am literally the worst person when it comes to staying sane in this Houston humidity. The stickiness has always been my biggest pet peeve during these hotter months, so much that I create a very specific work wardrobe that consists of 90% dresses and 10% skirts. My main concern is always comfort; I need to wear fabric that’s breathable and in shorter words: not tight. Today I’m showing you all one of my favorite outfits for when I have a day full of meetings or if I’ll be running around town during the workday. Adding summer pops of pink is the perfect way to give your outfit that sparkle factor.
As we’re heading into those hot Houston summer days (ignoring the current rainy situation), I’m ready to start busting out my colorful wardrobe. One of my most favorite colors that I love wearing is Emerald. Not only does it complement my skin tone so well, but I find that this color always makes me glow from within. As a confidence and mood booster, this J.Crew Daybreak Dress fits comfortably enough to be dressed up or down for any casual and special event.
Sunny Days. Remember those Houston? While life has been turning around, the weather unfortunately just doesn’t want to reflect my mood. The irony? It’s literally pouring outside as I’m writing this post. While I love a goodnight’s rest to the sound of rain, I’m not entirely fond of the nasty humidity that dawns on us all day. I guess you can say that I’ve been waiting anxiously for sunshine.
