JustFashionNow Summer Dresses

 I have worked with JustFashionNow* several times in the past, and I have always enjoyed their products.

So, for today's post, I decided to pick out three, pretty, summer dresses to showcase that are perfect for everyday wear, or your summer vacation.  I have been having a great time shopping and planning for all the travel I intend to do this year!

First of all, we have this really bright, pretty, floral print dress with the white backdrop and beautiful purple and pink flowers.  This one comes in sizes Small to Double Extra Large, and it costs less than $30. 

This one is so lovely for spring and summer, and it looks as if it would be super comfortable, as well.  I like the little detail of the crochet on the sleeves of this dress, and that it has a nice, deep, V neck to showcase your necklaces.

Next up, we have another floral midi dress; this one comes in sizes Small to Quintuple Extra Large.  There is just something about the print that I really love.  The color combinations are beautiful, and I think this dress is something that can transition straight into fall.  This one also comes with pockets, and it does come in two other other print combinations, including deep blue and white.

I have always loved nautical themed prints, and this dress is a perfect example, with the huge anchor it has on the front of it.  This one comes in sizes Small to Double Extra Large.  

This is another one that looks loose and flowing for hot summer days. And it is another one with the classic blue and white color combination!

Last, but not least, we have this beautiful, white and blue maxi dress that comes in sizes Small to Double Extra Large.  This is just such a summer classic because of the blue and white color combination!  This looks like something that would be very comfortable on a hot summer day because it is so flowing and breezy!

Deal with Oily Skin with These Clever Tips

Oily skin can be a nightmare to deal with. Even when you keep your skin clean, it can seem like your skin gets oilier throughout the day. And if you try to wash away the oil, you can often find that you end up with dry skin instead. Finding the right skincare balance is difficult, but there are ways to handle oily skin in a healthy way. You need to use the right products and routine to help keep your skin healthy and reduce oil. There are a few steps you can take that might help you to reduce the oil your skin produces.


Create a Cleansing Routine


A good daily cleaning routine is a must for anyone who wants to fight oily skin. However, it's important to get the right balance and avoid washing your face too much. You can be tempted to wash your face as often as possible, but this could make things worse. Instead, you need to pick the right cleansing product and keep up a daily routine. Many experts recommend creamy and milky cleansers, which help to break down dirt but won't disturb the natural moisture and protective barrier of your skin. Use a clean flannel to remove your cleanser too.

Avoid Drying Out Your Skin


You might think that the aim of dealing with oily skin is to dry it out. But if you dry out your skin too much, it will actually encourage your skin to make even more oil. Then you can be stuck in a cycle of having too dry and too oily skin. Avoiding drying out your skin will help to protect it and help to prevent problems with excess oil production too. One thing to keep in mind is that ditching your moisturizer isn't a good idea. You should still make sure your skin is getting the hydration it needs by using the right products.


Look for the Right Ingredients


The ingredients that are in your beauty products matter if you want to deal with oily skin. You need to be careful about any products that are specially formulated for oily skin. These will often strip away the sebum, leaving your skin unprotected. Instead, look for ingredients that will help to balance oily skin. Ingredients such as Retin-A and salicylic acid can help you to address oily skin in a healthy way. Try to avoid products containing alcohol, sulfates, and other ingredients that will dry out your skin too much.


Make Lifestyle Changes


There are some lifestyle changes that could help you to reduce oiliness on your skin. One thing that you can consider is your diet. Some things that you eat or drink could make your skin oily so avoiding them might help. For example, excess sugar and dairy might have an impact on the health of your skin. Another thing to think about is the makeup you wear. Foundation is something that you should choose carefully so it doesn't upset the balance of your skin.


Oily skin can be annoying, but there are steps you can take if you want to balance it out and make it healthier.

Ideas for Your Summer Wardrobe

Now that spring has sprung, we are not far from a long, hot summer. Our summers have been a little more restricted and demanding than we anticipated during the previous two years. A plethora of activities, picnics, and other celebrations have already begun as the summer season has arrived. Furthermore, it implies that we can update our wardrobes and have new, gorgeous items to flaunt, whether we're looking for style advice from our favourite shows, such as whether you prefer the classic appearance, a more nerdy style, casual clothing, or attempting to inject new life into our sense of fashion. Even wearing outrageous leopard print shoes is an option. These items are a must-have for your summer outfit.


It's fantastic to look forward to going on vacation and seeing new locations again. Imagine yourself sipping a martini while unwinding on a beach. As a result, new swimwear is required. Perhaps you should adjust the size or the style. Finding something that fits you can be difficult because there are so many options available. If you want to be more covered, go for a one-piece or a bikini with high-waisted bottoms. Getting a new wardrobe for holiday is always a happy occasion and places like Femme Luxe are perfect.


Although you won't need a coat in the summer, you should dress to impress if it's sunny and bright outside by donning a dress or a short-sleeved shirt. An extra layer may be required as night falls; a dress or T-shirt may not be sufficient, so consider purchasing a summer cardigan. Something sleek, light, and contemporary. You may put on a denim jacket, bomber jacket, or blazer. If you plan your outfit for the day in advance, you can see which pieces go well together, or you can select a jacket in a neutral colour that goes with everything. 


Along with your clothing, you should think about your jewellery. When it comes to jewellery, quality is more important than quantity. Oftentimes, cheap jewellery breaks, tarnishes, and even turns you green. Spending less money on a small number of high-quality essentials that can be worn every day is thought to be desirable. You still have the option to take a slightly riskier and extravagant action. The only thing left to do is select the item that best reflects your personal style. If you prefer something with a bit more sparkle, consider simple gold hoops, a crucifix pendant, or statement jewellery like gemstones. For premium and exquisite items, check out Brilliant Earth


In contrast to last summer's very much pastel-focused and preferred nude colours, many individuals are preferring an 80s and 90s attitude with vibrant colours and powerful designs. People over 30 enjoy reliving their earlier fashion choices, but it's best to avoid fast fashion and spending a lot of money on items you'll only wear once. Now is the time to think about fundamental items that you may pair with various outfits. Have fun with it and personalise it. Keep in mind that comfort still needs style and attractiveness.

Femme Luxe Summer Fashion

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Vaughan and I are making plans to go on a vacation soon; stay tuned for my pack with me and vacation vlog.
 
I will also be posting some videos on my Instagram reels in the meantime.
 
We plan on heading to the beach on season, which is something we do not do very often. We enjoy going to the beach during the off season, as well, but I am really looking forward to this for a change.
 
In the winter, Virginia Beach is a lot cheaper and less busy, it is still a fabulous place to go if you like shopping within walking distance, and a great ocean view at a very low cost.
 
I have started working at a new job, in addition to renovating several rooms in our house; and now we have been planning this vacation, so I am off to a super busy summer! 
 
How are you all doing? Wish me luck!

I have three different outfits that are perfect for these hot summer days, which we were having here, in Virginia, and they are all from from Femme Luxe*.  During these super hot and sticky summer days, these skimpy pieces are fabulous for my summer wardrobe. Vacation season is upon us, so, hopefully, the items in tonight's post will serve as some outfit inspiration for your next trip.
 
I know that I have been buying things for my summer vacation for months now. I think that might be my favorite part of taking trips - picking out all of the cool outfits that I intend to wear.


This first green print dress is perfect for a summer vacation. I love the print for a change from the little black dress. It is super lightweight, and easy to pack. Because of the print, it does not show wrinkles, which is always fabulous.  This has the ruched effect, on the side, and the little string, and then it also ties behind the back of the neck. I think the green print is a refreshing  tone for summer. The fabric is super stretchy and soft, so this is very comfortable to wear.  The fit in the skirt is nice and snug. The fabric is light and breezy, for the hot days we have been having here in Virginia. It does not matter whether you wear this for a formal or a casual occasion. I could see you wearing it on the beach with flip flops, and then with heels for dinner out, later that night.


This next two-piece set is great because you can wear it together or separately. There are so many different things you can do to change up the look, and style this in different ways! This set is in a UK Size 6, and I would definitely suggest this more for the smaller chested girls because the top is very skimpy, unless of course that is the look you're a going for.  I could also picture wearing the skirt with an oversized, white, button-down blouse, and some gold jewelry. The fabric in the this set is almost like that slinking knit type of fabric that is very stretchy, very soft, and very comfortable.


Last but not least, this beautiful bustier is another great piece that would look just as great with a nice skirt as it would a pair of ripped jeans for women. I love the rhinestones and the beautiful, neutral color. This is also in a UK Size 6.  This bustier top has small, bra type hooks all the way up the back, for closure; it also has adjustable straps.
 
The quality of this bustier top feels very nice. The fabric is thick, and really works to hold you in place.  This piece could also look nice worn over top of something such as a turtle neck, in cooler weather.  I love the combination of the rhinestones with the neutral color. Such a classy take on bling! And a way to dress this bustier up to be worn on a night on the town.


Let me know in the comments which item out of today's blog post was your favorite. I think mine has to be the first item, which is the green print dress.  And, in second place, is probably the bustier, because it is just so different from what you usually see.  
 
Well, I'm signing off for the night. I hope you all had a lovely week and weekend, and that you will have a great week this week!
