Try It On | Blaze of Summer

My summer uniform consists of one key piece- my beloved putty colored boyfriend blazer. Worn over jeans, a mini dress, or even shorts, a casual blazer can polish any ensemble. 

When it comes to wardrobe staples like a blazer, don't be afraid to spend a little more for a great tailored fit. This is an investment piece you'll wear time and time again. This season bypass plain old black and go for a cream or khaki color. Neutrals are right on-trend and will look ever so chic paired with light tones like white and blush.

For a look that's straight out of my personal style book, pair your boyfriend blazer with a simple white tank and shorts, and a neutral snakeskin heel. Let your accessories do the talking with a pretty blush bag and oversized lucite necklace.

Best Kept Secret | Dry Shampoo

There’s nothing worse than a bad hair day. They tend to creep up on you mid-week, when you just can’t fit another second into your day and the last thing you want to do is have a “washing-my-hair” night. Washing, drying and styling can be timely and tiring, especially for us long haired girls. Those are the days I thank the beauty gods for one of my best kept secrets—Dry Shampoo!

This magic shampoo-in-a-can needs no water and can liven up even the limpest of locks. Whether your hair is fine and suffers from a daily case of the greasies, you want to extend your salon blow out just one more day, or your bangs constantly fall flat, dry shampoo should be an essential part of your beauty arsenal.

A loyal (obsessive) user of dry shampoo for years now, my personal favorite is Psssst Unscented Instant Spray. At just $5.99, it's so cheap I stock pile it. Industry fave Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo ($11-$21) does a decent job if you're willing to shell out the extra cash; while TRESemme Fresh Start ($4.49) is disappointing to say the least, it acts more like a perfume than a cleanser.

Tip: Pick up a travel sized version to keep in your purse or car for touchups on the go!
