This floral print pleated skirt used to be a vintage dress that I won from the lovely Sammy of Sammy Davis Vintage and Lisa of Quarter Life Vintage. Since the dress was a bit too large for me I took it to my amazing tailor Christine* and she was turned it into the perfect easy, breezy summer skirt. I just wish I’d had the foresight to snap a few before and after pictures.
My wardrobe isn’t the only thing I prefer “easy breezy” in the summertime. Since we’re active and outdoors for most of the summer my hair and makeup routine is the last thing I want to worry about which means more often than not I’m letting my hair air dry instead of blowing it out and straightening it and going fresh faced minus a few swipes of mascara and lipstick.
To tame my wild mass of curly hair I run a small amount of Moroccan Oil through my hair after I get out of the shower and dry it just enough so my hair is damp not wet. Once partially dry I twist my hair into a bun at the nape of my neck and let it air dry (like above). When my hair is completely dry (not only does Moroccan Oil help control frizz and flyaways but it also cuts drying time way down) I carefully untwist and shake out it out and am left with soft, beachy curls.
Does your wardrobe/beauty routine change in the summer?
