This has been the first summer in all my years of life where I believe my mother when she says, “you’ll still get tan through sunscreen.” I swear, the moment I stop trying to rosy my complexion, the sun chases me. Whether it’s a quick walk outside or just a long car ride on the sunny side of the road, my freckles are multiplying. Unfortunately, because I’m not lying out, the color’s a bit lopsided (tan face, pale legs, such is life). But nonetheless I’m loving subtle ways to show off a bronzed glow. This peekaboo lace dress is perfect for end of summer date nights. I keep jewelry and accessories simple with such an intricate texture. And my lipsticks are just starting to tend toward darker hues for cooler evenings.
