Revamped Summer Look with St. Ives + Target $100 Giftcard Giveaway

"Summa, summa, summatime. Time to sit back and unwind." Taking a cue from DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, summer is officially here! (Woooooo!) I love this time of year because the weekends are filled with barbecuing, beach volleyball, and bonfires. Now that's a summer trifecta! Winter is over, the wool sweaters are coming off, and the tank tops, swim suits, and upcycled muumuus are getting worn!! I partnered up with St. Ives® to create a fun little video to chat about their brand spankin' new Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays that are here just in time for summer!

The scents make you feel like you're on vacation (Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C, Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter, and Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract) and the 360 degree spray factor, allows for a nice coating of lotion to hit your skin without feeling heavy, super greasy, or thick and goopy.

New Dress A Day - St. Ives Hydration Lotions

Get Moisturized!

With new, moisturized, summery skin comes a new, reinspired muumuu-turned summery dress.

My before look was just a tired muumuu that I found sitting at the bottom of a garage sale pile of my neighbor's cast-off clothes.

Muumuus happen to be my jam because the patterns are so colorful and they really just scream summer.

They're not the chicest pieces of clothing, however with some seam removing...

With my new upcycled dress (cinched at the waist) paired with some mules, a beach bag, and a spritz of St. Ives® Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion - not only because it matches my outfit :)-  to freshen up and moisturize my skin, I'm ready for a Saturday in the sun.
