Seemingly without warning we switched from cool spring weather to hot sunny days in the high 90’s, here in Colorado. With the summer heat you are probably finding yourself quickly transitioning to your sleeveless tops, shorts, summer dresses and skirts. So, I thought today might be a good time to talk about some ways to stay fashionable and cool all at the same time.
Forget the Spanx and tie a shirt around your waist.

Go ahead and put on those short shorts but add a light weight duster for a little coverage.

Some other summer tips:
Jergens Natural Glow daily moisturizer is amazing and is a favorite with most of the style magazines (and the Cabi staff too). I use the Fair to Medium shade and apply it a couple times a week to my arms and legs. It is great for evening out your skin tone, especially on the legs.
Jergens Natural Glow face moisturizer. This is a newer product for Jergens and I’m not as impressed, but I think it will be nice to have when I am at the pool or beach or hiking and want a little bit of color and sun protection without the worry of makeup. I moved up to the “medium to tan” color and still don’t see a lot of color but it’s there. Smells really good too.
Sally Hanson Airbrush Legs. I recommend this product all year round. It is a great substitute for panty hose, especially appreciated in the summer, and provides amazing coverage, more than a tanning lotion. This formula goes on in an almost opaque way with just a bit of shimmer. You will swear you have hose on. My daughter Aubrey sometimes uses it on her arms too for special occasions.
So here’s to the hot summer days, filled with sunshine, friends, family, and cute outfits of course!
