Today is supposed to be the last day of the current heatwave and I can not wait for the rain and the fresh and cool air to hit us. I know we are still lucky because usually our hot days don´t last long but it has been super hot for days now and that is just too much. You can not go outside. Not possible to do anyhting.
Anyways let´s have a look at the outfits I have worn the last (I think) three weeks. I have switched the pink for lots of black and didn´t mind at all. Black isn´t the typical Summer color for me but there are so beautiful black Summer dresses that I really don´t mind adding a little more black to my wadrobe.
dress H&M / sandals bonprix
shorts esmara / swim suit H&M / shirt H&M
skirt esmara / slides Asos / swim suit H&M
sandals Tamaris / wide leg pants Stradivarius / tunic esmara
The only constant is change which is very true and couldn´t be more fitting in terms of skincare. Not only do we switch from night to day but we switch as well as we get older and also seasonal. So there are plenty of things you probably have in your skin care cabinett but the core pieces might still stay the same. At least mine do cause when I have found a tried and true item I usually stick to it no matter what.
I wanted to share my Summer skincare morning routine with you. It is a little different from my Winter routine and a lot different from my nighttime routine.
So I am sharing what I use and in which order I am using it:
Neutrogena Deep Clean Face Scrub // You often read that a scrub should only be used once or twice a week but my beautician said I can get a fine-grained prodcut and use it every morning to remove dead skin cells and oily residues from my face. I feels very resfreshed after using it and love the feel it leaves on my skin.
Clerasil Toner // This has been a staple of mine for a long time. I think the salicyd acid it contains keeps my skin clearer.
Pixi Vitamin C Serum // A vitamin c serum is definitely a staple in my skincare routine and stays no matter the season.
Eye Cream // I have started using eye cream in the middle of my twenties and I think it is very important you do too. The skin in the area around your eyes is very thin and can get dry quickly which brings lots of problems like fine lines or wrinkles. An eye cream helps to prevent or stall these wrinkles coming in.
Kiehl`s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense // A face cream with a high SPF like 50 should absolutely be your staple in the Summer month. I have been using this for years every Summer and I am very satisfied. It isn´t sticky, blends in well with my foundation and a little goes a long way.
Elf Beauty Shield // On days were I am only wearing little make-up I am using the elf beauty shield. It is a tinted moisturizer also with a high SPF (there isn´t too much SPF) and it is totally fine for Summer days. I will add some powder on top and then I am good to go.
Mario Badescu Face Spray Cucumber, Lavender // This is my favorite face mist of the three options. I just love a good lavender scent. It is calming and more important cooling and I like to use it throughout very hot days.
Annemarie Börlind Eye Patches // I have read about these in a study and these have been one of the winners so I got them and they are amazing. Very hydrating and without a strange smell. I use them as often I think about them (mom brain !!).
Do you change you routine from time to time?? Are there any core products you love ??
Dressing postpartum is definitely more struggle than joy most of the time but there are still things out there I enjoy wearing and high-waisted pants – any kind of high-waisted pants – is one of them. They suck you in a little cause the buttons or in this case the tie is right where you want it to be.
So for today´s post the main item to focus is the pair of shorts and of course, how else could it be, it is in another shade of pink. Seems like my whole Summer wardrobe is made of pink pieces of clothing but I still haven´t mind one bit.
I paired my pink linen shorts with a leopard shirt. Buttoned shirts are perfect if you are breastfeeding but also can be a little dull if you only have white ones so I am glad I got so many cute and colorful prints. A plain pink pair of pants are pretty easy to style cause they work so well with lots of colors.
Although Summer is in full swing the Summer sales have started everywhere and let me tell you there are some good deals. I got this dress from Asos some weeks ago and the sales have gotten even better. Placed a huge order on cute shirts and tops for Summer that will hopefully flatter my postpartum body.
I have never been a huge fan of mini dresses but this works pretty well on me (I am 1,64 m, 5´5). I has a crocheted bust area and is looser in the tummy area which is great if you want to hide a little bump. The sleeves are nothing but ordinary but I love a dramatic sleeve no matter the season.
The flower print mustn´t be a surprise for you guys if you have read the last posts I wrote. I am embracing it to the fullest this Summer and also pink. Flowers and pink – best together.
Are you guys still shopping for Summer or are you craving cooler temps and Fall. I am very tempted to start prepping posts for Fall but we have planned a small vacation in the middle of September and I really don´t want to kill the mood. Don´t know what to do now other than brainstorm ideas for Fall fashion posts to share will all of you.
