Don’t get roasted all day long
While it is nice to get some Vitamin D, there’s no need to roast yourself until you get skin cancer. Plus the second-day burn is no fun for anyone. There are so many options for tanning lotions if you want the golden bronze look. Don’t destroy your skin in the process.
Don’t forget your hat
Your skin will thank you later. Choose a wide brim hat with a material that blocks UV rays. There are many styles of hats to choose from. Try them all until you find one that reflects your personal style. If you hate hats, pack an umbrella.
Don’t go out without a change of outfit
Summer is full of spontaneous getaways. Always be prepared. You never know who you might meet.
Don’t go too heavy on the makeup
Believe it or not — the most attractive look is a fresh face with ‘barely-there’ kind of makeup. Don’t get lost under your makeup. Dressing up is fun but let your face feel the sunshine once in a while.
Don’t match everything
Shoes and bag are okay to match but anything more is overkill. Nobody wants to see you in head to toe red with red lipstick and a red dress with red shoes and a red handbag. Too much. The key is to include subtle splashes of your favorite color.
Don’t wear ill-fitting clothes from 5 years ago
We know you have your favorite denim jacket from years ago and that’s fine because it will now look like a vintage jacket you picked up at the thrift store. We’re talking about the pants with the saggy bottoms and the dress that’s too short and too tight now. It’s time to let go and embrace new seasons and new opportunities.
Over-dressing / under-dressing
Yep, it’s a difficult month to dress well in – but if you do it right, you’ll look fabulous. However, there is always the risk of overdressing, especially when it’s been winter for so long and you are used to chucking on layer after layer. So remember to be cautious about throwing the kaftan over the maxi dress over the silk scarf over the beach hat… the layers soon add up and before you know it you’re looking out of place amongst a group of appropriately dresses pals.
Ok, we understand you’ve been living in boots, shoes any other comfy piece of footwear for the last few months, but now it’s time to adjust to the weather. And by this, we categorically do not mean Crocs, socks, and sandals or kitten heels! We mean elegant sandals, some classy evening stilettos and some Converse for dog walks and exploring.
