Sara’s July Favorites:
In lieu of our Charming Tuesday posts, Samantha and I have decided to post our top five “favorites” for each month. This way, we can include more items instead of just sticking to our beauty essentials. So, to kick off our new segment, here are mine:
2. Beauty – Last month I discovered Garnier Nutrisse BB Cream and am absolutey addicted. It is perfectly lightweight for summer time and really works wonderfully- it covers your skin just as well as a foundation, without all the weight, and really moisturizers your skin.
3. Hair – Since having a baby, I have been pretty low maintenance with my hair (plus, who wants to really do much when it is so darn hot outside). So, instead of using a hair product, I have been sticking to a ton of hats. I am a huge fan of fedora’s and Target typically has a huge selection of cute ones to choose from.
4. Clothes – I have also been slacking it on this section as well lately as far as dressing up goes … but I have been investing in quite a bit of workout gear to get back into my pre-baby body. I am a huge fan of Champion sports bras from Target (the more neon the better in my opinion), as well as running shorts. I have purchased quite a few pairs of Nike Run Tempo shorts and they perform well in the heat and don’t ride up like so many other running shorts do.
Another recent purchase for me that I love is bright neon denim. I found a pair of Magenta skinnies at Target and absolutely love them. I am now on the lookout for a good pair of Mint colored ones, but have yet to find a pair that fit me length wise. Let me know if you have any suggestions…
5. Shoes – I don’t think I could say this enough … but I live by sandals, sandals, sandals. Wearing any type of closed toe shoe during a Texas summer is considered crazy (probably TMI, but your feet will sweat like crazy if you try it). Two weeks ago I purchased a cute pair of brown sandals with orange stones on them from Banana Republic and absolutely love them. They go with about half of my wardrobe.
Bonus: If you aren’t already aware, I live in Texas, and down here, country music is very popular. For the past two weeks I have had “Drunk on You” by Luke Bryan stuck in my head on repeat and I must say, I absolutely ADORE that song. If you haven’t heard it, please check it out. Plus, he is pretty darn easy on the eyes!
