Today, I'm going to round up some of my summer favorites (that aren't baby-related, ha!):
-ONE and TWO-
Can I get an "amen" for the fact that elastic-waist shorts are in style?! I mean, my post-pregnancy body is shouting "THANK YOU AND AMEN" from the rooftops. No button? As Kevin McAlister said in "Home Alone 2,": "You got it!" But seriously, these shorts are amazing. I have them in white, black, blue, red and some various prints and they. are. awesome. I feel dressed up when I put them on with a cute top, but they're also great for bumming around the house. Plus, they're nice and cool for our ridiculously hot Texas summers.
I ordered this shirt from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I'm in love. It's so comfortable and is a great style. It does have a low cut, so you might want to wear a tank underneath it, but I can tell you that this top will be getting a lot of wear by me!
I received this oil in a recent Influenster Vox Box, and I really love it. Not only is the scent heavenly, but I mix the oil with my everyday body lotion for a nice smell without being overbearing this summer. I feel like it still sticks with me even after my perfume has melted off from our oppressive heat.
I could sing praises for this book and the author, Jen Hatmaker. I have laughed so hard I've cried and simultaneously bawled my way through this book. Women, whether you're married or not, have children or not, or are dating or not: please read this book. It will truly change your outlook on life and how you, as a woman, face this world of impossible standards.
I have a new baby and for real, I probably only wash my hair about twice or three times a week. And I'm sorry, but it's summer in Texas and why am I going to bother fixing my hair when it's just going to stick to my neck -slash- fall flat -slash- end up in a ponytail in .5 seconds?! So this dry shampoo is the bomb. (Do people still say that?) Anyway, it is. I adore the smell and it really does work.
Y'all, oh my gosh. I bought this foot peel on a whim totally thinking it wouldn't work, BUT IT DOES. It's so gross, yet so cool, yet actually works. You put on these little plastic booties with a salicylic acid liquid in them, tape them on your feet and then sit down for an hour. And then you wait a week thinking the money you spent was for naught and then, voilá: your feet start peeling and you're half horrified, half amazed. It took about a good three weeks for my feet to be all finished, but now they truly are super soft. I treated myself to a pedicure once it was all said and done, and my feet really do feel great. I might recommend doing this in the winter when people don't have to see your feet in sandals, but either way, I recommend it because it truly does work!
I am not pregnant anymore, so need I say more? Yes way, rosé! This is my very favorite rosé and I have indulged in many a glass over the last 2-ish months. There is nothing better than an ice cold glass of rosé on a hot summer day!
So tell me, do you love any of these things? What have you been loving this summer?
