When it comes to meeting up with your girlfriends during the week or on the weekend, it's equidistant from whatever neighborhood you're coming from. We have some tips to help you navigate this season.
KEEP IT EASY
From a style perspective, we love rompers because they allow you to take on a number of activities from a meeting, heading to the office, Happy Hour cocktails, shopping and date night. WIth the challenges of hot temperatures you want to be able to wear an outfit that you can pull on and not have to think about it again. Romply has a number of fun prints and the way you can accessorize it makes it your own!
Any look is enhanced with the power of an accessory. Fans of the magazine know that we love statement jewelry whether stacked or worn alone. In this month's editorial, we showcased an assortment of Virgins, Saints & Angels which has a number of pieces that have that perfect herital look and adds great visual texture to your look. We also love Talia which allows you to customize your look and brings amazing bling to your look no matter how casual or glam it is.
No matter the season, we believe there is a boot that can be paired with what you're rocking. in the summer, we love an ankle boot which is a great way to elongate the look and for this shoot, we included Qupid which has a massive collection of shoes that are on trend across your lifestyle.
When it's hot, we love a sunkissed glow which will only increase when the weather gets steamier! This looks incorporates bronzer and fun lip hues that are neutral as well as vibrant to play up your features as you choose.
For hair, we love letting those natural curls flow, rocking those side ponys and a well placed messy do! To keep your hair looking amazing, we suggest having the right tools - Bed Head Culipops 1875 Watt Diffuser Dryer and Hot Tools 1" 24K Gold Flipperless Curling Wand. In terms of finishing sprays, IGK Intern Flexible Hairspray, IGK Laid Back Defrizz and Anti-Static Spray, OUAI Volumizing Hair Spray, Oribe Shine Light and Reflecting Spray, R+Co Trophy Shine + Texture Spray and R+Co Viscious Strong Hold Flexible Spray. Always have Revlon Hair ties and combs on hand.
STAY HYDRATED RESPONSIBLY
Hydration is key and although water is always our go to, when you want to switch it up, we suggest WTRMLN WTR which has a range of watermelon beverages that are super hydrating. They can be enjoyed alone or mixed into your beverage of choice.
When it comes to kicking back with your girls, we love a chilled rosé in a can and have a few favorites that include: Ruza Rosé, Alloy Wine Works -Everyday Rosé and Anyday Rosé.
Our shoot took place outside in Flatiron and we headed to Patisserie Chanson at Dessert Bar an uderground dessert bar, a renovated speakeasy which has a tasting menu of sweet to savory desserts and phenomenal cocktails. We also shot at The Loft in Flatiron which is an event space that also has a bar which makes it perfect for a number of events that you can imagine.
