Summer Essentials

These super hot days, I never go out without  4 things: my hat, dark sunglasses, a pair of open toed sandals and lots of sunscreen. I´ve discovered that wearing a hat is much cooler and more chic only last summer. Years before that I use an umbrella. Seriously.

The dark sunglasses serve me 2 things: to shield my eyes from the glaring sunlight and to hide my ever growing eyebags, a  lovingly inherited feature  from my Mom´s side of the family. That´s aside from my height and my barely their nose. lol!

In summer, I only use 2 kinds of footwear, flip flops and open toed flat sandals. It´s time to give our lovely footsies a breather, dahlings! Besides, it´s too hot to cover your feet.

Lastly, lots of sunscreen SPF 50. On the face, arms and even on the feet! And hey, you should apply it very 2 hours at least even if you´re not on the beach nor by the pool but just having a lovely time somewhere in the park or in the street.

And one more thing, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Cola doesn´t count nor does cafe latte or whatevs from Starbucks. Plain water will do. It´s much cheaper and has zero calories. :)

Perfect summer essentials. I love dark sunglasses so I don't have to wear any make up either. And I need a new fedora hat.

Oh my where to begin! It's been so hot here in Dallas we've had 30 days straight of weather in the 3 digits -- a record in 50 years! And it's funny I complain because I'm only here on the weekdays! In any case, I NEED a hat that fits me nicely!

You look great! Oh and if I may add, shorts is a staple in the summer too! :D
