HOW IS IT SUMMER?! I hate to be that girl that is like “omg where did the time go” but seriously where the FACK did time go? I felt like I woke up from Spring into the most absurd weather of INTENSE HEAT and random ass rain showers….but um, hello Summer 2019!
Usually when we switch seasons, I feel a bit like Marie Kondo and I need to get rid of everything that is not bringing me joy!!! However, I usually get bored about half way into it and then cannot seem to finish my task 🙂 REGARDLESS, I will soon get it done and I am super excited for what is in my closet this summer. Not only just my clothes, but also my accessories, gadgets, skincare, etc.
Below, I listed out what I have in my summer bag this season! I usually get the “omg you’re SO Mary Poppins” joke with my bag, but I promise you – it’s light, and carries all of the necessities for my day to day!
1. A Casual Romper
No matter where I may be going, I always like to keep a casual romper and/or jumpsuit when I am traveling in the summertime. Whether I am traveling to my boyfriend’s after leaving work, or driving back from the beach, I want to be COMFY! And I don’t want to be sweating in the excessive heat. Highly recommend ASOS for any cheap romper & jumpsuit options (such as the one above!)
2. The Tech Shyt
I wish I could say I was one of those girls who “disconnects” BUT when you work a corporate job, it does get very hard to do just that (hoping some can relate to me 😉 ! Therefore, these two items are necessities in my bag. Airpods are the absolute best, and are so easy to connect to any device you are working on (I’m always switching between my work laptop & iPhone). I will say, however, I am one of those girls whose phone is always charged! I have a bit of an OCD obsession with having my phone charged, so my portable charger is necessary!
3. Protect the Gooooods
To be very honest, I have never been GREAT with sunscreen. However, as I have aged I can definitely see the repercussions. Wrinkles, freckles (as they run in my fam) and to be honest I’m not like very fond ot it? Anyways, I am obsessed with the suncare collection from Derma-E, and the products above fit my every need. If I’m running outside, I will use the All Sport Sunscreen Spray which doesn’t sweat off (bless) when I’m being a fitness hoe. The Sensitive 3-in-1 sunscreen is amazing to put on in the morning after you get out of the shower, and has such a nice texture so you don’t feel like you cake product onto your bod! Visit the Derma-E website to learn more 🙂
4. Glam on the Go~~
Introducing my HOLY GRAILS of summer makeup! Trying to cake on a full face of foundation in the scorching NYC humidity and heat is a joke, so I usually will opt for a light bronzer & mascara. I am obsessed with the Marc Jacobs O!mega bronzer because you can layer it on to the shade you want to be – some bronzers can be a bit dark and a daunting task to take off 🙂 The Loreal Telescopic Mascara is AMAZING for those who like length in their mascara. And finally, Nars Bahama Lipstick has been my go-to since 2015….not sure it looks bad on anyone.
