Summer Style Secrets: Flourish Design + Style

 Sarah, from Flourish Design + Style is sharing some of her 
Summer Style Secrets with us today.

Here are my summer essentials:
1.       Great flip flops. Each summer I invest in one good pair that I know will go with my go to summer looks. In the past I’ve gone with Tory Burch, JCrew’s leather sandals and this year, Burberry Jellies. I adore them-Available here.

2.       Summer hair product. I just picked up a Frederick Fekkai product for waves. Gives my daily pony tails a little change. You can buy it online at Sephora here.
3.       For my lips.. year round it’s Vaseline. Plain and simple. I haven’t worn lipstick in 5 years. I started using it in the hospital with Calleigh and I haven’t stopped since.

     
4.      My summer dress code is easy, simple and basic. I love white shorts, you can do so much with them. These shown are white with a glam twist from Jcrew. www.jcrew.com
5.    Tunics. This one is from Rikshaw, love it. It’s available here.
 Thanks so much Sarah…love your style!

  32. I love those J.Crew shorts. They are so pretty.

    And I've been using a dab of vaseline around the eyes for years to ward off crows feet. Let's just say I'm not in my 20's and I don't have a one.

  35. These are definitely some of my summer staples! Great choices. A nice pair of flip flops, I like the Tory Burch Thora, a beautiful tunic, and I would trade white jeans for white shorts…I wear white jeans and shorts all summer long!
