In compiling this mood board, I realize that I really like accessorizing with the family of reds: glossy strawberry tints, rose gold studs, and pink floral accents on my fedora. With the higher temperatures, I tend to have a warmer and pink skin tone so I tend to go lighter on make up colours while layering on the suncreen BB cream- a must to have that naturel visage and protection from the sun. Accessories are kept loose and lightweight which is beneficial when the weather makes you sweat. It's a bonus because it almost feels like you're wearing nothing next to your skin. Also, scrunchies and hair ties come in handy when your long hair sticks to you... thankfully I chopped mine this time around!

With such busy lives, I would say it's an essential to make time for yourself - such as heading out to a lush park with a compact colouring book in tow. The bucket bag works great for transporting supplies and all the other fixings for a relaxing sunny day. And even with your watch, should you lose track of time, at least the scarf will keep the evening's chill at bay.

There's something about summer that makes me feel like it's no longer acceptable to spend my days watching hours and hours of Youtube - it's prime time to be out soaking up the sun, either out exploring with friends or sitting in the sun getting lost in the world of The Selection.
