I am obsessed with piling on the wrist adornments!  I just love a good assortment of mixed metals and precious stones with a fierce watch in the mix!  You can make this hot no matter what your style might be!

BoHo Babe ~  Mix in friendship bracelets, colorful pieces and patterns using string and hemp styles!

Classy Chic ~  Mixed metals, a large faced watch and chuncky chain links will add a classic nautical twist!

Bold and Beautiful ~ Sparkles, large charms, and wide cuffs will make this a bold statement!

Edgy Rocker ~  Black, studded cuffs, and leather wraps will make this look rock!

Stack on your favorite bangles and create your own Style In The City!

When it comes to the summer heat, a lot of things can make you want to take the "less is more" approach and for the most part I say GO FOR IT!  The top of my summer Au-natural beauty regimen is hair and makeup!!
Absolutely Gorgeous!  Natural and Beautiful!

 When it comes to putting any extra layers on in the 90 + degree weather, I can't help but cringe!  One of my favorite parts about summer is that my makeup routine is cut down to three simple components:  my go to Neutrogena lightly tinted moisturizing sunblock (uber important), Burts Bees SPF lip tint, and Maybelline mascara!   Whala!

Next on the list, my hair!  Embrace your natural texture, whatever it might be!  I personally have a long thick curly head of hair that took me over 20 years to accept!  Chicago humidity and my own acceptance of myself have helped me learn to love my natural simple summer hair routine = condition, condition, condition!  I apply Garnier Fructis sleek and shine leave in conditioner to my damp locks and go!  It's that simple and I feel like I'm adding moisture rather than piling on product that weighs it down!

My typical casual summer style!  :)
I've learned to love and embrace every freckle, laugh line, and crazy curl!  Whether you have porcelain skin, a
freckle infused face, crimped and tousled hair, or a super straight main, just make sure you own it, love it and protect it this summer!
Rock your own Au-natural Style In The City beauty routine this summer with confidence!
