Summer Favorites Fashion

Hi All, I’m Marie from Twin Living and I’m so excited to be guest hosting while Amanda is on her honeymoon. I think the world of her and love her blog. She is just the sweetest thing and I’m happy to call her my friend. I hope her and Mark are having a blast in Greece.

Today, I’m sharing my summer favorites fashion. To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with the Summer. While I love a nice sunny day, I dislike the heat and humidity. Another reason is that at my second job the dress code is strict, no sleeveless shirts, shorts or crop pants. Can you believe that? We are allowed to wear open toe shoes. Since I go from job to job in one day, it’s really a struggle to find the appropriate clothing.

Here are my summer favorites.

St. James T-Shirt found here.

St. James T-Shirt

Ok, I know, a t-shirt?? This is one of the best things I have ever purchased. It’s a 100% cotton tee and very well made. It doesn’t scream t-shirt and can go with so many different things and you can dress it up or down. I usually wear this with my navy skirt and a pair of pearls. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on this when I wear it.


Navy Skirt

GAP navy skirt

It can go with so many thing sand since it’s 100% cotton, it’s lightweight enough to wear on those hot days. Plus it is on sale so grab it now here!


Chambray Tunic Shirt

I love tunic’s and ankle pants for the summer.

Chambray Top

To be honest, I probably break the rules when wearing a “chambray” tunic but no one has yet to say anything about it. It’s possible because I dress it up with accessories. I find that the darker chambray tunics tend to be more “dressy” than the light color ones.

Black Ankle Pants

DVF black ankle pant

I absolutely love ankle pants. Wear them dressed up or dressed down. Heels or flats. They go with everything.


White Dress

alice and olive white dressI love a white dress in the summer, with a little sweater or jacket. Perfect for those hot humid days. Side note when I wear white, I always make sure to have a tide pen in my purse. Just in case.


Pink Cardigan

Kate Spade Pink CardiganPink is my favorite color, it’s only appropriate that I wear a pink cardigan in the summer. It’s colorful and goes with so many things.


Guerlain Meteorites Baby Glow

Guerlain Love the Meteorites Powder by Guerlain? This is that but in a liquid form. It’s similar to a bb cream but better. It very hydrating so it makes your skin look radiant. It makes my skin glow and it doesn’t seep into my pores. Love this stuff. Oh and it has SPF 30 in it.


Alterna’Bamboo Beach – Summer Sunshine Spray’ Protective Shine Veil 

Alterna Bamboo beachSince I color my hair and want to make my color last as long as possible, I spray a little bit of this in my hair before I head out to the beach. It does a great job in protecting my color as well as help with that dreaded frizz. Plus, I love the smell. Find it here.


Fresh Sugar Tint in Rose

Sugar LipI always wear lipstick or lipgloss, even at the beach. Otherwise, I look dead. Seriously. I usually wear one of the Fresh Sugar Tints. I love them. I wear them over my lipstick. I think they help make my lip color last longer while keeping my lips hydrated. Rose is my favorite for the summer as it’s makes your lips a rosy pink.


Kiehl’s Since 1851 ‘Activated Sun Protector’ Sunscreen SPF 50

KiehlsI always carry a bottle of sunscreen in my bag. I like this one because it’s paraben and silicone free. It does not irritate my skin at all. Also, I have used it on my face and it didn’t clog my pores or bother my eyes. Oh and it doesn’t get sticky in the sun.

That wraps up my Summer favorites.

Amanda, thank you so much for having me. It’s been a pleasure. Hope you are having a wonderful honeymoon and I cannot wait to hear all about it.

Thanks for reading, please stop by my blog, Twin Living Blog to say hello. I love meeting new bloggers. What are your summer favorites??

Best, Marie
