So this is what I’m wearing lately. And what I’ll likely wear all summer long, if I’m being honest.
Cutoff shorts, button-down, and a splash of snakeskin.
Day or night, put me in this and I am happy as a be-denimed little clam.
Summer is, of course, all about streamlining. Especially when you’re in the middle of a move, because seriously, guys, I cannot find anything. I mean that. I lost Kendrick’s Father’s Day present sometime pre-Father’s Day because I packed it into a box that was the perfect hiding place, but it turned out that it was so perfect that I ended up hiding it from myself, and the thing has yet to turn up.
But back to streamlining: when the heat hits, I love the idea of simplifying everything from your wardrobe to what you make for dinner (who wants to be slaving over a hot stove in hundred-degree heat?). When you shed what’s unnecessary and keep only what you need, life gets just a little more relaxed.
And that concept certainly applies to your beauty routine: I’m a couple of months into my Simple Skincare experiment, for which I’m using exclusively facial skincare products created specifically for sensitive skin (like mine own), and so far, so good. Right now, my favorite product is the Vital Vitamin Night Cream, which is extra-replenishing (as a night cream should be), but still light enough for summer (and feels especially nice after a day at the beach, just FYI).
These days, my face feels…better.
And I don’t know whether that’s because I’m enjoying a brief period of good pore karma, or because beauty products for sensitive skin are exactly what I’ve been missing, but either way, I’m enjoying the freedom that comes with skin that behaves itself and is run-around-town-ready on days when makeup is simply not an option.
