Vacation Basics

striped coverup, city, beach, sandals, bikini, dealI first found Joules on Pinterest a while back (pinned a pair of super cute wellies) and they have a vacation shop on their site right now with a lot of great basics. I’m eyeing this striped coverup with a semi-sheer panel on the bottom. Looks comfy and versatile—plus, you can rarely go wrong with a stripe! These are a few of my favorites for wearing to the beach and around town.

Thank you to Joules for sponsoring this post!

Lace Bunny Ears

maison michel, illustration, fashionLace Bunny Ears – Art Print

Inspired by the playful Maison Michel bunny ears seen on everyone from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian. I’m tempted to make a pair after finding a bunch of DIY tutorials—who doesn’t need a set of lace bunny ears for everyday life? :)

Getting Model Hair – Effortless Textured Waves

Ok, so here is the product to get that je ne sais quoi cool factor for your hair. I love that model-off-duty bedhead look but can’t quite achieve it by air drying my hair alone. (So much for effortless, right?) Enter Show Beauty. They generously sent over two products to try out and let me tell you… they’re amazing! Besides having the most glamorous bottles to ever grace your counter, they smell beautifully of caramel, vanilla, soft white musk and coconut milk. It’s a subtle scent that’s lux and sophisticated.

I’ve tried regular beach sprays before which were great, but these take it up a notch. The combination of volume and texture did wonders for my hair. Since my hair is long and thick, I never put any kind of volumizing product in it. But when I air-dry for waves, it kind of falls flat and gets oddly weighed down with it’s natural thickness. The volume lotion gave it a little oomph, which is exactly what it needed. And the texture spray gives it a really cool matte bedhead look. It doesn’t take much time to apply the products (lotion when damp, spray when dry), so a tiny bit of effort goes a long way. Pretty effortless!
