Embrace summer with comfort & style

 Embrace summer with comfort & style

Beauty Brite Disclosure

The dog days of Summer may not have officially started, but in many places, it’s already sweltering. To survive the hot, hot days, I need to be well equipped. Besides staying hydrated and wearing lighter clothing, I need a lot of sunscreen and some comfy, stylish sandals.

I need my Vitamin D fix as much as anyone else, but anything beyond 10 minutes in the sun and I’m on my way towards lobster territory. Sunscreen is a must all year long, but especially in the summer. For me, this means covering every single part of my exposed skin. In other words, I apply sunscreen from head to toe.

You might think applying sunscreen to your feet is silly unless you’ve been sunburned there. Besides, no one wants to be stuck with tan or burnt sandal imprints all summer. This is precisely why I’m always on the hunt for new and better sunscreens. In the past few years, this means using sunscreens offering more than broad spectrum protection, like Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen Sport Luxe SPF 30.

Lavanila Sunscreen Sports Luxe

I was excited to give this Healthy Sunscreen a try. The Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen Sport Luxe SPF 30 is 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan, as well as free of parabens and aluminum. Infused with SmartSport Technology and antioxidants, this mineral sunscreen is designed to be water, the sun, and sweat resistant.  What I like most about this sunscreen, besides it being all natural, is isn’t doesn’t have that sunscreen smell. I also liked the skin tone color, which helps to blur imperfections.

Lavanila The Healthy Sun Screen Swatches

Unfortunately, I don’t like the texture of the product. It’s very thick and doesn’t blend into the skin easily. It’s also very tacky. The Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen Sport Luxe SPF 30 never fully absorbed into my skin, which left me feeling very sticky. This tackiness also caused lint and other debris to stick to my legs and arms.

Once I’ve found the perfect sunscreen and applied it, I’m ready to head outdoors. As a shoe queen, I have summer shoes in all shapes, colors, and heel heights. As much as I love a good platform, my go-to summer shoe is a flip-flop or thong sandal. It’s the perfect shoe for running errands, heading to the beach or the pool.

Soft Comfort Honeymoon Trail in Red

My latest favorite comes from Soft Comfort in the style Honeymoon Trail. This faux leather thong sandal, available in red, turquoise, and white features a cushioned insole and 1 ¾ inch heel. I opted for the red, which to me is more of a salmon color.

I love how comfy the cushioned insole and rubber thong bumper makes these sandals. I wore them recently on an all-day errand fest and my feet felt amazing. Usually, after a long day, my feet and legs can feel achy and tired. Or they have blisters from a strap(s). This is especially true in the summer when I opt for style over comfort. With the Soft Comfort Honeymoon Trail, I get both.

The only issue I have with the sandals is that the straps are a bit wide on my slightly narrow feet. This doesn’t impede with wear, but it is something to keep in mind if your feet on are on the narrower side. Regardless, I know I’ll be getting a lot of use out of these sandals this summer if I don’t melt from the heat and humidity first.

    I love those flip flops. I’m guilty of wearing the one dollar ones you can buy at walmart. They fall apart easily and are horrible for me feet and back. I should really buy a nicer pair like the ones you’ve showed us here.
