(SUN)SCREENING SPF

I don’t know about you, but I just love to soak up the sun. Whether it’s a full on tanning session with beachwear-to-match or a quick moment to absorb some sunlight; it helps me get through the day. And let’s be honest, the best accessory to compliment any outfit, is a bronze glow on your skin.

But in order to process the effects of this little ball of fire, we must enjoy responsibly (yes, you’ve read that somewhere else before). Safety preventions with a capital S or in official terms: SPF. However, every visit to the sunscreen section leaves me clueless. The crazy amount of sun protecting face creams, sprays, lotions, wonder potions and butters... They overwhelm me. And to make it even worse: I don’t know what to choose and what to use. But eventually, the biggest hurdle in SPF decision-making comes from the many misconceptions. If you recognize yourself in this description, read on!

RUCHED SKIRT

Yep, that’s a skirt! A ruched skirt to be exact. It’s becoming a little less of a rare sight seeing me wearing a skirt and I am even eyeing a python printed yellow stunner (on sale!) at the moment. Oh, and an over the knee fluted hem skirt. Not sure if that’s going to happen though, since I have to find a way to justifiably squeeze (one of) them into my 5 Piece French Wardrobe system first.

FRISKY FRECKLES

In the ever-changing landscape of beauty we tend to forget about the seven signs of classic beauty. Yes, those old school physical characteristics to define good looks, created in the 17th century. Even though I really dislike claims to female perfection, I adore this little list. Why? These aesthetic features are all natural, not bound to symmetry or to trends. Not to mention a manifest on human variation. Reason enough to highlight one of my favorite signs... Those frisky freckles!

FLIP FLOPS, YES OR NO?

Ahh, flip flops. Is it manageable to make them look chic or do they need to be banished to a deserted island far far away? Some think they're the most hideous things ever made. I think they can actually look pretty cool, especially when you look a little further than the rubber option.
