I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for summer to begin…. It is my favorite season of the year! I can’t help it… I love everything about it…
All winter, I yearn for warmer weather and longer days… I look forward to quality beach time, be it night or day and having the opportunity to swim laps or ride my bike on the boardwalk before heading to work. But, if you know me, I am sure you can guess my love for summer extends deeper… deep, deep, deep into my closet…
What can I say? Summer apparel just makes me blissful. I love ditching the winter layers and dressing in a sleek, long flowing sun dress, rocking bright colored sandals or strutting around in a mini skirt.
But, believe it or not, my favorite summer staple is not an article of clothing. It is these hair accessories…
I have very long hair, and I can’t stand to wear it down in the summer. It is just too heavy and hot. Sure, ponytails are great, but sometimes they make me feel like I am still a teenager. So, especially when I head to work, I like a more professional look. These guys make a French twist easy (and sparkling).
I just brush back my wet hair, and pull as if I am putting it into a ponytail. Starting at the top, I twist my hair down, holding onto the bottom with my finger. I tuck the bottom under and up so that the end reaches the start of where the ponytail would have begun and secure with one of these. I then have an easy, quick twist that lasts the whole day! And since I do it when my hair is still wet, it dries twisted up when I finally take the clip out, I am left with flowing curls….
I have purchased all of these accessories at kiosks at local malls and none have been over twenty dollars.
What are your favorite summer staples? How do you bring the summer sun to your wardrobe?
