What’s the easiest way to look awesome and not be weighed down by a long beauty routine in the morning? I’ve listed a few of my must-have summer beauty buys that are all you need to look great, feel great, and have that effortless (literally) beach beauty style. Whole routine on this one? Maybe five minutes.
1. Everyone should wear sunscreen! All day, everyday. Try this one as it has moisturizing benefits and gives you that glowing radiant skin we cherish in the summer. Suntegrity.
2. Easiest hair remedy ever. I let my hair air dry, and then spritz this baby in. Bam. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray.
3. Waterproof mascara is always a must in the summer. It’s hot, makeup starts to fall, and we’re left with black under our eyes. Try this one to keep those bright eyes full. Blinc Waterproof Mascara.
4. A nude lip never goes out of style, and this one I like to apply all day. I can even use it over a colored lip to give a little more muted tone. Laura Mercier Nude Lip Gloss.
I was packing for a vacation and I really wanted to bring my new ShopLovely dress, “Abingdon Square.” But as I’m fair skinned I was trying to find a large floppy sun hat to go with it and protect me while still looking fab of course. Which now brings me to this post. Proud to say that I have now ordered even more, (because Abingdon fits absolutely perfect BTW), and thought why not try to couple up some of our ShopLovely dresses with more sun hats. The best thing of all with the below, is that you can totally mix and match, and these hats are at big retailers, so they are easy to find. Making your vacation outfit sweet from top to bottom.
To celebrate Lovely’s appreciation for all things vintage, I thought I would share some old and beautiful photographs with you. When I was a little girl my grandparents had an older house with a very steep staircase; along the wall hung about 30 black and white photographs of stern looking great grandparents, marriage certificates, and small children in matching sailor outfits. The babies were always pictured in long, lacy dresses- even the boys!
I always envisioned decorating my own staircase with vintage photos, and although I’m far from a homeowner, a girl can dream!
You can arrange the photographs in different patterns, and use tarnished frames of different colored metals for variation. And by all means, don’t limit your vintage beauties to the staircase– decorate the guest room and bathroom too. Working with different subjects, such as Vogue magazine divas, classic city architecture, and royal family wedding photos will add to the intrigue.

As we are having a Leanne Marshall Trunk Show this weekend at Lovely LA, I invite you to scroll down to see a modern and soft take on this shortie, as only Leanne Marshall can do best. Neons and moss green mixed with little touches of mocha to bring this stunning bridal gown back to the moment at hand; a new chapter of life with your honey. Flirty and fun with these pop colors, and then softened by a sweet vintage comb for a hair accessory. A neon yellow ring to give a little “hello gorgeous!” And the always popular green earrings to make any hair color look it’s best as they dangle from your ears. Without a doubt, this Leanne shortie is this week’s One Great Dress!
