Although it is technically still spring, the weather has been hot and moderately humid. This means I have switched to my summer skin care routine.

As a mid-life, GenX women, my skin has multiple issues. This includes fine lines, acne (yes-at my age! Ugh!), and in the summer- sun exposure. ReVive is a huge favorite of mine, and their daytime products have SPF built in. Love that! So, unless I go swimming and forget my sunscreen, I am fully protected through my skin care products.

I always wear body cream to help keep my arms and legs from wrinkling like a prune. When I wear body cream, I love a slight scent. Laura Mercier is one of my favorite body creams, which I started buying in the 1990s. This summer I am in an Almond Coconut mood. It is the perfect summer scent! Love!

My daughter is a huge beauty product fan, and she introduced me to this facial mist. It is so refreshing on warmer days and made for the face; this means no clogged pores or greasy residue. Love it!

That’s it! My skin care routine for summer 2024 is not too different from last season, or last year. I am loyal to products which work. If you are looking for summer skin care products, I hope you find these products as amazing as I do!

It is dress season! We are heading into summer dress season when one dress can go far. I love a good dress which can be worn to a wedding, graduation, tea, luncheon and other outdoor events. It is a bonus if the dress can be worn with woven flats or sandals and paired with a straw handbag and sun hat. Love!

The best summer dresses have a print. This helps on warm days when you are outside and need a bit of camouflage. I love the one pictured above, but I went ahead and linked a few others I also love below.

Timeless and chic handbags are still hot on the street! Expect the anonymous handbag to continue this year and into next year.

Perfect summer dress

graduation dress ideas for mom

‘Tis the season for finding the perfect dress for graduation activities as a mom of a soon-to-be graduate! I wore this dress to a tea event recently and I plan on wearing it to my daughter’s upcoming graduation ceremony.

The graduation will be held outside, and every year, it is in direct sun and very warm. This means, you need to safeguard your overall look against, shall we call it, perspiration? Uh um, yeah. Anyway. . .

Prints are key when attending an outside event in warm weather. They hide food spills and more. Prints are amazing in that respect. I love this print because it will be perfect for that possible scenario and the dress can easily be dressed up or down.

For my daughter’s tea event, I wore this dress with flats and my mini tote. When it comes to graduation day, I plan to wear a sun hat, straw tote, and natural fiber flats since the ceremony will be held outside on the football field.

In addition to graduation and tea’s, this dress can be paired with sandals for lunch in the summer and espadrille wedges for casual dinners. Love! I am excited to have the perfect summer dress for many occasions. You can find it online here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats on your soon-to-be graduate, and any other summer activities you have coming up!

XOXO
