Look Sassy All Summer!

Summer makes me smile!  As soon as I hear a Beach Boy’s song, especially “California Girls”, I am in the mood.  Water, sun, bbq’s….and fun, flirty, sassy looks!

Here are a few ideas I like to play with.  Try some of these for yourself and share your summer fun with us!

A burst of color is always a mood lifter.  Try a metallic eyeliner in an ocean hue, a color you’ve never worn before on your toes or get really crazy  (summer gives you permission to play!) and paint each nail a different color!

Get a dress or top that falls off of one shoulder.  You can always wear a cami or tank top under it, if you like.  In fact, show a little skin in an unexpected way.  Think about you and what you like best about your body.  Keeping your skin well moisturized and smooth will help it look its best.  Not crazy about your arms?  Try 3/4 length butterfly, dolman or kimono sleeves.  Wear capri pants that are above the ankle, add a little ankle bracelet and cute flats or sandals.  Do you have a beautiful decollete area?  Go with a portrait or boat neck top.  A slit your skirt, a loose, floaty dress that lifts a bit in the breeze, a bare back….and, you can always wear a sheer top or skirt to give the illusion of skin!

A messy up-do with lots of tendrils, jingly bracelets, a long slinky necklace that draws the eye to an eye catching bust line…..

A beautiful sun-kissed glow makes all of us look like beach angels.  There are some great sunless tanners, body shimmer lotions and bronzers out today.  You can be a golden goddess without stepping foot in a tanning salon or baking by a pool.  Spray a light, citrusy or floral fragrance in your hair, add a coral, peach or rose lip gloss and off you go.

Borrow from your guys!  Men’s shirts are always sexy when we pair them with capris or a denim pencil skirt.  They make fantastic swimsuit coverups as well.  A pinstripe shirt and a great belt can make a fun summer dress-just make sure its long enough or add some short leggings underneath.

Now, for your shoes!  A fresh pedicure is a must all summer long.  Pamper your tootsies!  Smooth, satiny feet are so pretty that any color nail polish works for summer.

Grab your SPF, tote bag and hat and head off into the sunlight-but before you go, let us know what your summer fun habits are!
