Happy Monday, ladies. Our weather has really heated up, so it’s full speed ahead for operation, blow town. We have dry heat here, so I am beginning to get used to it, but Kevin and I both have cabin fever, want to go to the ocean, and really miss Canada.
Our plan is to head north and spend some quality time in Vancouver with Vanessa and visiting my brothers. I really, really, really regret selling our second home on Vancouver Island, but try not to whine about it too much. As you can tell, I’m not succeeding.
As you know, I’m a sunscreen fanatic. I read labels obsessively and try new ones regularly. I dove down the rabbit hole of chemical vs. physical block sunscreen over the last six months and began experimenting with them. Not smart! During my last trip to the dermatologist, she commented that my rosacea was looking worse. I know the National Rosacea Society and my dermatologist both recommend a physical block over a chemical sunscreen, so that may be why it’s gotten worse.
When I saw that Colorscience had come out with a new and much improved invisible physical block, I ordered it right away. Their products are cruelty-free and feel elegant on the skin. This really is invisible and leaves zero feeling on my skin after it dries. Hindsight is always 20/20, and it’s clear to me now that I’ll be giving all my chemical sunscreens to my husband and using them up on my legs etc.
I know many of you are not on social media, so here are a few of the outfit inspirations I shared there last week:
I just love this neutral look. This relaxed outfit would be super comfy for a trip to the flea market, running errands, or meeting a girlfriend for lunch. Flat espadrilles would be easy on the feet, and the linen tops would breathe in the heat.
These Frame jeans and Ray Ban sunglasses are marked way down…which is why I love Nordstrom Rack! I paired them with a soft tee, some comfy wedge sandals, and a great summer tote. The leather cuff adds a bit of attitude to this easy spring outfit.
This pretty pleated dress has loads of texture in a soft color palette. The bag and sandals add even more texture to this look. Tie a white shirt at the waist for some arm coverage and you’re ready to go.
Have you updated your sunscreen lately?
