The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and your iced coffee cup runneth over. All that’s left to officially ring in the summer season is a quick swap of your winter ways (because heaven forbid your shoulders go covered one more day). From your beauty routine to your breakfast, here are nine easy ways to freshen things up.
IF YOU LIKE: Thick moisture masks
YOU'LL LOVE: Micellar cleansing water
Now that the weather is a bit more humid, it’s time to lighten up your skin-care routine. Micellar cleansing water first wipes away anything your makeup remover might have left behind, and then hydrates your skin enough that you can skip using a separate moisturizer.
IF YOU LIKE: The Girl on the Train
YOU'LL LOVE: The Assistants
Find a seat outside where you can lose yourself for an entire afternoon in this book about an executive assistant in New York City and an imperfect embezzlement fiasco.
IF YOU LIKE: Hot oatmeal with apples and brown sugar
YOU'LL LOVE: Chilled blueberry-banana overnight oats
The sweet on-the-go goodness of this overnight oats recipe is enough reason to get out of bed. Before you head to sleep, grab a mason jar (perhaps an extra from your latest Pinterest project) and layer low-fat milk, Old Fashioned Quaker Oats, vanilla, blueberries, bananas and a drizzle of honey. In the morning, a cool, whole-grain breakfast will be ready and waiting to be devoured.
IF YOU LIKE: Contouring
YOU'LL LOVE: Monochromatic makeup
This new technique uses a single shade of cream blush to make you look instantly tanner, which is good, because your skin has barely seen the light of day for months. It’s a simple and fresh way to give your face a (faux) glow.
Multi stick ($39)
IF YOU LIKE: Cozy knits
YOU'LL LOVE: Breezy jumpsuits
If ease is a top fashion priority, then get thee into a jumpsuit. Super-light and airy, it won’t weigh you down andit’s the quickest thing to toss on for just about any occasion. Tone it down with sneakers or fancy it up with stacked heels.
Navy leaf jumpsuit ($200)
IF YOU LIKE: A glass of Pinot Noir
YOU'LL LOVE: Rosé cocktails
Give your rosé a little shake-up this season. The latest cocktail trend blends rosé with things like gin, strawberries and rhubarb or, wait for it, slushie ice. Rosé cocktails are great for big-batch, low-alcohol summer sipping.
IF YOU LIKE: Warm flannel sheets
YOU'LL LOVE: Cool linen
Heat makes the worst bedmate. Linen sheets are airy and soft, and made to keep you comfortable in warmer weather.
Queen linen sheet set ($169)
IF YOU LIKE: Hot yoga
YOU'LL LOVE: Body-weight exercise
This winter was all about you, the mat and a 100-degree heater to keep the chill out of your bones. But now you can take your workout outdoors. Like yoga, body-weight exercise relies solely on your own weight to tone and sculpt. Think lots of planking--in the grass and under the sunshine.
IF YOU LIKE: Pastel winter coats
YOU'LL LOVE: Gingham
Poor gingham. Forever resigned to visions of Dorothy and her trip to Oz, or our great-aunt’s dusty guest room. This summer, it’s finally getting a refresh and is being splashed across ruffled dresses, high-neck blouses and miniskirts.
Gingham dress ($138)
