I’m back from a wonderful vacation to Croatia, Bosnia and Italy – view the highlights on @taffetaandcedar. Days before I left for Italy, I picked up these wide-leg pants at Uniqlo…and I love them! They are perfect for travel and can be dressed up or down. I wore them to dinner a couple of times and for our train ride from Rome to Venice, which is about 3.5 hours. What are some of your go-to pieces for travel?

I love the clean lines and deep v-neck on this shift dress. We will be attending a wedding in Croatia soon, and I thought this would be a great dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner. It’s classic, comfortable and has just the right about of sass!
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs – Beige Glow
Who doesn’t want flawless looking legs in the summer? Laying out at the beach soaking up the sunshine is a true love of mine. Though with a busy schedule, it’s difficult to always find the time to maintain a summer glow. I was excited to try Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs over the weekend. It is easy to apply and dries quickly. I applied a thin layer to both legs before heading out for the day – wearing white! My legs felt smooth and flawless! A great addition to any summer beauty routine!

An all-black look is a no brainier. It’s chic, effortless, and easy to put together. So why not add a touch of gold for a pop of color and excitement, you know?! I’ve been wearing more scarves these past few weeks, too. It’s a perfect summer hair solution for short hair and adds some texture to any look.

I love the wide-leg on this flowy jumpsuit! Rompers and jumpsuits are always a summer go-to for me. You can easily dress them up for a night out with heels, or go casual with flats for the office. I picked this one up at Old Navy last week…it’s on sale now! Where are some of your favorite rompers/jumpsuits from?

I love having short hair, it’s been variations of short for over 10 years. I tried growing it out this past winter and it was
torture uncomfortable. Though in the warmer months I like having it out of my face, especially when it’s humid or while I’m at the beach. Since I’m not a fan of bobby pins and clips, my solution is a large scarf. Yes, it’s that simple and pretty chic, too!

Later this week I’m heading to the Florida beaches for a few days. I’m super excited about all the sunshine, sand, and palm trees awaiting me! Summer is my season, and going to the beach is always on the top of my list. Here are a few of my go-to beach favorites!
With the weather warming up and the humidity rising, this means it’s time to switch up your daily skincare routine. As I’ve mentioned here and here, I have
obnoxiously oily skin and I’m always looking for ways to find balance. I’ve recently discovered this Green Tea Mattifying Hydrogel Mask from Boscia – it’s amazing! The Japanese green tea helps to reduce sebum production, acne-causing bacteria, and diminishes breakouts. It minimizes shine and excess oil with amino acids that contain antibacterial compounds. And it’s free of parabens, preservatives, sulfates and artificial aroma – another important factors when selecting any type of skincare. I’ve been using a mask 1-2 times a week and my face is feeling smoother, less irritated, less reactive, and less oily. Just in time for summer!

Keeping it simple: warm weather calls for easy dressing with linen and sandals!
