A Touch of Summer in The Spring

The weather is starting to  feel what most people would consider a normal summer day but for Floridians its still spring becuase it’s still not inhumanely hot.  Most days it’s in the low 80s and a cold front pops up maybe twice a month bringing the weather down to normal spring temps but it doesn’t really matter down here.  Once March rolls aorund the daisy dukes come out in full force and the wife beaters are sold by the dozen (I’m not kidding about the wife beaters – I tried to buy my teenager a pack for his MMA class and there was only 2 packs left in white at Target lol). Anyway it doesn’t leave much room for layering but it does give for some fun styling. You can pair a trench with denim shorts, pack a cardigan to the beach or wear your bikini under a linen blazer for a night on the beach.  Its a laid back style that you can’t really wear all year round anywhere else.

When summer rolls around down here in Florida it comes with inhuman heat and humidity, which only wreaks havoc on my hair (even after an hour in front of a hairdryer I still end up with frizzy hair)!  So lately I’ve been air drying to camouflage the frizz and although I am not 100 percent sold on it, it’s easy to do. I use the hanna thermal protectant oil and Sally Hershberger Shagg Spray that I found for only $2.99 at Ross to get a piece-y look and it works great.  Along with the big hair that I to call “beachy waves” I like to keep my outfits easy and comfy as well.  I tend to keep my focus on tops because bottoms always consist of cut off shorts, a cotton mini or rolled up jeans.  Every year I get on a new kick: last year I was all about asymmetrical tanks and this year it’s graphic tees.   I got this one from Shopbop and although a little bit more than I usually pay for tee, it’s totally worth it!  It’s got a roomy fit which is perfect for summer; the length makes it look like a perfectly worn-in mens tee and my favorite part is the length of the sleeves – its just long enought to be able to give it a nice roll if I’m in the mood too.
