Swim Sale for the 4th of July @Target

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are able to enjoy this holiday outside and maybe even at the beach or pool!

If you are still in the market for new swimsuits for the family, I can’t rave enough about Target swimsuits! They are so great that me and the kids sported them for our recent beach trip.

The fit is great. They offer different silhouettes for all body types. This is helpful for both of my kids especially since different cuts fit my daughter better than others. My son is on the tall and skinny side and the board shorts stay up great even when he’s jumping in the waves or off the diving board.

Quality and value is top notch. I wash them in garment bags in the washer and air dry. They hold up all season. The kids out grow their suits before they even start to look too worn. 

Through the 4th all Target swim is on sale! Ladies and kids is 20% off with code SWIM

Perfect T-Shirt Dress

A t-shirt dress is a summer staple! I found a new favorite this summer from Loft’s Lou and Grey line.

So many great things to rave about this dress!

First, I love the lightweight cotton slub fabric. I don’t always want to be wearing a dress in a poly blend in the summer heat. Cotton is perfect to keep you cool and look cool in the heat.

Second, the fit is perfect for my body type. Often the t-shirt dresses I find are very tight on my hips and are too short. This style is roomy but not sloppy. It hits just above my knee providing enough coverage so I’m not self-conscious all day. I would size up if in between sizes. I’m wearing a small and it fits perfectly. I could have gotten away with an XS but since it’s cotton, I didn’t want to risk it shrinking a little in the wash and then be too tight or short.

Third, it’s so versatile. I’ve worn it to work and taken it on vacation to the beach and lake. Bonus- it’s super easy to pack!

I love all the colors offered, but I fell in love with this yellow. Such a bright and beautiful color for Summer! Now the yellow is only $18!! Many other great colors to choose from which are also on sale. (affiliate links)

Favorite Moisturizers of Summer

Hi Colleen here!! I know I have told you all that I am a beauty product junkie. So, I wanted to bring you all my favorite moisturizers for the summer. Not only is it super important to keep your skin moisturized throughout the winter but the summer as well. Being out in the summer sun is really hard in the skin even when wearing sunscreen. I know my skin gets just as dry in the summer as it does during the winter months.

So here are my top 3 for 3 different reasons. (commission links)

Josie Maran Body Butter (splurge item, but a little goes a long way)- I have blogged about this product before (you can catch up on that blog here) and all the amazing benefits of it. This is my fav year round product. It is made with 100% Argan Oil and your skin will drink it up. The best part is that it does not leave a greasy feeling at all and completely melts into your skin. I literally use this from head to toe. In the summer I use it mainly on my face as my facial moisturizer.

Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer (link to different scents and combos)- I recently started using this product and love the way it also melts right into your skin. There is no greasy feeling at all. I am not one for heavy fragrances as they tend to make me feel sick. This product however has very light scents that I love (especially pineapple scent pictured above). Since I only like to apply the last moisturizer below every other day, this is the one I use on the off days!

Jergens Natural Glow (link to different sizes and skin tone needs, I use Fair to Medium) – Since I am not a fan of tanning in the sun (I never go out without SPF 50 or above) this is my go to tanner (I have been using it for at least 15 years now!). It is very subtle in the changes and moisturizes as well! I personally only use it every other day so the change is very gradual. Even though this is a moisturizer first you still need to make sure you apply it as evenly as possible and ensure to rub in well around joints and creases as you would with any self tanner.

That is it!! With these 3 items I am ready for summer!!
