Poolside Style Guide

[images][image]Look 1[image]Look 2[image]Look 3[endimages]Summer is officially here and I can’t wait to take a dip. I love this time of year when vacation time comes and just bumming around in my swimsuit is all that’s on the agenda. Whether you’re headed to a beach day with friends or attending a pool party, here’s a few things to keep in mind.

There’s a swimsuit for everyBODY.
There is literally a swimsuit for every body which makes it easier to wear something that’s not only flattering but also makes you feel comfortable and sexy. I personally am loving the one pieces right now. Try a variety on to see what suits you best. Also, depending on what kind of swimsuit day it is, consider wearing a cover up. This is an extra layer that can easily be removed and is still lightweight so you won’t overheat. 

Ditch the flip flops.
I realize that they are easy to throw on and they can be comfortable but step up your game with (just as easy to slip on) leather flats or a hot white pair of Birkenstock this summer. 

Don’t forget to accessorize.
You don’t need to go overboard and wear your crystal earrings to a pool party but consider a small bracelet or stud earrings. Something easy and simple. Two things I typically always wear with my swimsuit are a hat and sunglasses. They create a little statement and protect me at the same time. 

Keep makeup minimal.
If I’m out in the heat I typically ditch heavy makeup and stick to waterproof mascara (or none at all and just curl my lashes), tinted moisturizer with SPF, bronzer and lip balm. Keeping it simple avoids your face from melting. Also never, ever skip the sunscreen!
