5 Items You Need to Beat the End of Summer Heat
Despite the fact that school has started for some, it’s supremely hot in Chicago. And, as is no secret, I hate the heat. Give me 30 degrees Fahrenheit and snowy any day over this. But, as with all seasons, we need to endure the summer heat to get to the good stuff of fall and winter. So while I’m waiting to wear my favorite cozy sweaters (keep an eye out for a post with those coming soon!), here are some of the top products I’ll be using to beat the last of the summer heat and look my best despite it.
For those days when the humidity wins and you don’t want to take any tools to your hair, there’s the every amazing Ouai Wave Spray to keep you feeling styled, looking fresh, and maintaining a beachy wave. I absolutely adore this stuff and, despite the price tag, swear by it. Full disclosure: it’s not cheap at all. But it’s worth every single penny, especially on those days when you’re feeling like a lion and not in a good way. Spray from about 10 inches from your head and fluff those waves.
It’s hot, it’s sunny, it’s bright. Use that good lighting and give yourself the best highlight goals you possibly can. I’m on love with this highlight because the peachy pink tones blend into my skin beautifully and it gives that wonderful highlighter glow when I catch the light without taking away form the rest of my face of makeup. I’m in love.
A Panama Hat
I found my panama hat while on our honeymoon so I have a little bit of a sentimental attachment to mine. But the straw vibe and lighter color of a panama hat is exactly what any summery outfit needs. Bad hair day? Hat. Humidity and sun getting the best of you? Hat. Not sure how to tie that outfit together? Yup, hat.
Bobbi Brown Beach Perfume
This perfume smells like a day at the beach. A little tropical, a little refreshing, and a lot perfect for summer. If it’s the middle of winter and I want some summer vibes, I’ll even spritz a little on my pillow to have dreams of beach days. Because even if I hate summer, I still miss it sometimes.
Comfy Strappy Sandals
Y’all. Wearing closed toed shoes that capture your feet in summer is the WORST! My feet sweat a lot. And even if I don’t like getting pedicures, I’m still going to keep my toes out to help them keep cool. I’ve got some amazing sandals from J Sport by Jambu that were so popular they’re completely sold out! They came back in stock at J.C. Penny’s though so I’m linking them now! Because their vegan sandals have memory foam and are the MOST comfortable while still looking super cute.
Enjoy the last of summer, friends! It will be fall before we know it and I, for one, am THRILLED. I hope these picks will help you feel extra fierce despite the sweat until then. Cheers!
