Experiment with colors that remind you of summer or that help you feel cooler.

Wear a bright pink top under your suit jacket, paint your toes neon blue or keep a bouquet of sunflowers on your desk.

2. Update your wardrobe with summer basics.

Here’s a check list from Shari Braendel‘s book, “Help Me Jesus, I Have Nothing to Wear!” available right here:

____ 2 pairs of shorts

____ 1 pair of capris or cropped pants

____ 2 pairs of lightweight pants in your style preference

____ 4-5 tops in flattering colors and style

____ 1 lightweight sweater or jacket

____ 2 summer dresses

____ 1 lightweight skirt

____ comfy casual flats or sandals

____ trendy sandals in a higher heel or wedge

____ swimsuit and cover-up

____ 3-4 trendy accessories

____ summer tote or bag

A pretty beach towel would be nice, too, especially if it coordinated with your bathing suit and cover up.

3. Update your skin care and makeup routine

Summer means adding sun protection, lightening up on moisturizer and foundation and embracing summer makeup colors.

Try out shades of coral and pink on your cheeks and lips for a fresh, youthful glow. Neutral peaches and pinks flatter almost everyone.

Bright, bold lips are very trendy this summer! 

Contact your favorite Mary Kay lady or contact me for a referral for a MakeUpdate–or book an appointment at your favorite mall makeup counter.

BONUS TIP: Keep clear aloe and a spray toner in the fridge to cool off and refresh skin.

Speaking of skin…

4.  Show some skin!

Don’t be afraid to wear a sleeveless top (or cap sleeves if you need coverage), a sundress, capris or shorts.

Feeling pale? Try a self tanner. Just remember your sunscreen.

Feeling exposed? Add a sheer kimono or a light linen blouse.

“Cold shoulder” tops are IN!

5. Have fun with accessories.

Try out different sun hats, wear a cute anklet or buy sunglasses in a fun pattern. Wear hot pink sandals or a cover-up in an animal print, even if it’s too “wild” for your normally. Summer is the time to play and express yourself!
