Coming off of yesterday’s post, it should be no surprise that I care (deeply) about my skin. With summer right around the corner, one part of protecting that youthful glow is looking out for the sun! I know, I know. It reminds you of something your mother used to tell you but it’s the truth so deal with it.
Sunscreen is old news (but totally still wear it religiously). What’s new news? Sun protective fashion. That’s right. Clothing that actually protects you from the sun while wearing it and it’s cute! I just discovered SUMMERSKIN (the maker of this dress) and am anticipating adding a few more pieces to my closet before summer is over. I’m so inspired by the founder, Summer, who was inspired to create this company after being diagnosed with melanoma at age 26. How terrifying!! She caught it super early fortunately and founded SUMMERSKIN after realizing that stylish protective apparel just wasn’t available on the market. She also was a pharmacist which tells me she knows A LOT about skin care. I mean, if that isn’t serious girl boss status, I don’t know what is. Read more about her story here.
Dresses seem to be the item I’m reaching for most lately. Easy to wear, less to think about, and effortlessly feminine, they are your one stop shop when it comes to fashion. I loved the way this chambray dress fit and with the tie at the waist, you are guaranteed to get that fabulous hourglass shape! Fashion AND function AND skin protection? I think that’s a home run right there! Since lightweight dresses are perfect for sunny days and picnics in the park, so my first instinct was to pair this one with wedges. Both pieces are super comfortable and easy to spend a day outside in. I loved how the chambray material in the wedge complimented the dress so well!
If you haven’t picked up this tote bag yet, do it. It’s so affordable (only $48) and comes in 4 colors. The bag is reversible so that really makes it 8 colors!! It’s the perfect bag for all those summer beach days and pairs perfectly with SUMMERSKIN!
