Do's and don'ts of summer dressing....

{Do add bright accessories!}

It's getting warm out there and before we know it we will be HOT. Personally, I am looking forward to it! Here are some do's and don'ts when it comes to staying fashionable this summer:

Do own a pair of awesome sunglasses that are comfortable. Splurge a little if you can. 

Don't wear pedal pushers. They cut everyones leg in the wrong spot and they are extremely unflattering. Wear cropped or ankle pants instead. 

Do wear skirts instead of shorts whenever you can. They are more universally flattering.

Don't let your bra straps show when you are wearing a tank top. They make some very comfortable strapless bras out there. You NEED to find one that works for you.

Do get a pedicure at least every four weeks. If money is tight you should always make time to do your own at home pedi. You will be wearing sandals and you don't want to be embarrassed by torn up toes. If you haven't had time for the pedi, skip the sandals and wear a pair of ballet flats that cover your toes instead.

Don't wear eyeliner or mascara on your bottom lash line. It will melt and smudge and you will look like you have two black eyes. Instead only wear eyeliner and mascara on your top lids. Waterproof isn't always necessary but may be for those who have deep set eyes or droopy eyelids.

Do wear a hat when you are in the sun to protect your precious facial skin. I can't wear SPF on my face due to my sensitive skin, so I ALWAYS wear a hat when I am outside in the sun. Plus hats are very cute and stylish.

Don't wear synthetic fabrics in the hot weather. Instead opt for natural fibers such as cotton and linen.

Do throw on a cute cotton sleeveless blouse with anything!

Don't think that you have to bare it all. Just because it's summer doesn't mean that wearing a tube top is for everyone. Opt for a loose fitting cami instead to stay cool and look chic.

Do wear an all natural deodorant that is aluminum free to keep you fresh all day and don't hesitate to carry it in your purse so that you can reapply as needed. 

Don't forget to moisturize. Even though you are sweating, the sun can still be drying. Just opt for a lighter lotion instead, preferably one with SPF 30 or more.

Do wear maxi dresses!
