“Ironic” flag prints need not apply.
Which means my husband and I will probably just chill on our rooftop and enjoy the last moments of being a twosome! But no matter what, even with baby on the way, I try and stay true to my sense of style. I like to feel put together, but in an easy kind of way. Meaning, I will be sporting jeans, a bodysuit, a swim top (showing off the belly) and a cute sandal.”
This year, I'm opting for Norma Kamali's swim dress in white. Not only does she make the most flattering swimwear I've ever put on, but she also makes something I can look cute in when I don't want to get wet (which is always). I do like to wear red, white, and blue on the 4th of July and I am never prouder to be an American than in an Olympics year, so this dress covers me for the white.
Since it's a holiday and I hate to do my hair, I'm going to casually tie it up with a red Hermès bandana. I’ll make sure to hold a blue solo cup and or bud light, since that's blue too. As for beauty, same routine goes as everyday, except since I will be outside, I'll pump up the highlight and nix the blush.”
The key to my beauty regimen during the summer is to wear as little as possible. I’m obsessed with Lancôme’s new juicy shakers (my friend Bramble made me try them): they provide just the right amount of color, but you feel like you’re wearing virtually nothing. If I’m feeling extra fancy, I’ll combine two colors. And these hair pins? I love a good hairpin any day of the week but these are the best I’ve found–they keep my frizzy summer hair out of my face, are affordable, and are the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Oh, and they’re Jen Atkin-approved.”
“This July 4th I plan to spend the day floating on an inflatable unicorn wearing lots of sunscreen and a baseball hat to protect my skin from the sun. Neutrogena Wet Skin is the best since there’s no weird white residue, just a sheer mist. I’ll be in a bikini and cut-off shorts, which means a major self-tanning session is in order. Since I always forget to do it in advance, Lancôme’s Flash Bronzer Body Gel is perfect because it gives you an immediate glow.”
