Summer OOTD Work Edition: What to Wear to the Office

Summer OOTD Work Edition: What to Wear to the Office

Today was such a beautiful day here, it was 34 degrees and sunny, and I even got my first sunburn of the season! Not that this is something to be proud of…I put sunscreen on before I left the house this morning, I swear! But I clearly didn’t do a good enough job, because my shoulders are looking a little red this evening. It’s on days like today when I just want to wear shorts and a tank top and go to the beach. Dressing for the office when it’s so hot out takes a bit more effort when you still have to look put together but you don’t want to melt. Today I’m sharing with you a cute outfit I often wear to work that’s perfect in this heat. It’s a summer OOTD work edition!

Today’s post is a fun one full of some thoughts I’ve had while at the hair salon. Let me know if you relate to any of them or if you have any to add!

Battle of the Garnier Micellar Waters

Battle of the Garnier Micellar Waters

I wrote a post a few months ago where I compared the Marcelle Micellar water with the Garnier Micellar water (see that post HERE), and basically I explained how amazing the Marcelle one was, and how useless the Garnier one was. #spoileralert When I finally ran out of the Garnier one, I went to the store to buy the Marcelle one, and again, I couldn’t find it! Walmart, you are letting me down with your selection! Anyways, beside the pink bottle of Garnier Micellar water I got last time, I saw there was a blue one. And upon closer investigation, I wondered if this could be the product I was looking for all along…
