Red, White & Blue Style Inspiration for the Fourth of July

Red, White & Blue Style Inspiration for the Fourth of July - SCsScoop.com

Hi friends! I’m down in Florida this week for my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary. Summer is definitely in full force down here and with Fourth of July around the corner, I wanted to share some red, white and blue style inspiration. First, I’ll share how I am styling red, white and blue this summer. Then, I’ll share a few cute and patriotic red, white and blue tops to complete your Fourth of July outfits. 

For a casual look, I paired a pretty red floral cami with my high-waisted mom jeans – a new favorite! I found my cami on amazon earlier this year and got it specifically for the Fourth of July. It runs TTS and does not come tied. I just decided to tie it since so had high-waisted jeans on.

For a dressier look, I styled navy paperbag shorts with a fitted striped red, white and blue tee. I also paired them with my super affordable rattan earrings from Amazon. Not pictured are the nude espadrilles I can’t stop wearing! For the shorts, I sized up to make sure they were super flowy, kind of like a skirt. The floral cami would totally work with these shorts as well! A style tip for tucking tops into paperbag shorts: tuck the whole top in, all the way around, and then pull it out little by little until you get the look you’re going for.

Now for some extra red, white and blue style inspiration, I am sharing some stylish tops to easily pull together a patriotic and cute outfit.

I can’t wait to wear these outfits in just a couple weeks when we are at the beach in South Carolina. 

Now, I’d love to hear from y’all – what will you be wearing this Fourth of July and what will you be doing? Do you have a favorite look of the two I shared?

Cheers!

7 Floral Rompers for less than $50 + A Style Tip

A Style Tip + 7 Floral Rompers for less than $50 - Floral Romper Trend - Summer Style Inspiration - SCsScoop.com

Hi friends & happy Friday! I found an affordable floral romper that I have been loving lately. So today, I am sharing how I styled it and all the details for this look. I also found five more floral rompers that are all less than $50!

Floral rompers are a great staple for summer. In general, rompers are “in” this season, and I would guess that the trend will continue to be popular for at least a few years! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you already know I have a thing for florals. So, it’s probably not surprising that I am loving how the print looks on rompers. The floral romper I am wearing is $25 and comes in a blue floral print as well.

A Style Tip for Floral Rompers

If you’re trying to find accessories for a floral romper, it’s best to stick with neutral pieces and keep it simple. I accessorized my romper with ivory crochet tassel earrings and a new comfy pair of nude espadrille wedges. I wore a straw basket purse with a simple Kendra Scott bangle and rose gold cross ring as well.

Wearing neutral accessories will let your floral romper have its moment, and you won’t have to worry about the print competing or clashing with anything else. For layering on a cool summer evening, try a taupe suede moto jacket or a white denim jacket that compliments your neutral accessories. My neutral straw hat pictured below is also a fun, summertime accessory for floral rompers!

5 Summer Skincare Tips for Healthy, Nourished Skin

5 Simple Skincare Tips for Healthy Summer Skin

Hi friends! I am back from our beach weekend with the summer skincare tips I have learned over the years to maintain and achieve healthy, nourished skin. Summer is the time to show some skin and bring out your swimsuits, shorts and tank tops. With all the extra skin we show in the summer, our skin can turn into our best or worse accessory. A cute summer tank with shorts does not look as attractive if your skin is dried out and neglected.

I know from experience and I have made some mistakes when it comes to my skincare routine and products. So, today I am sharing the five simple ways I take care of my skin and maintain a youthful glow during the summer.

5 Summer Skincare Tips for Healthy, Nourished Skin - Sarah Camille's Scoop - SCsScoop.com

Summer Skincare Tips

#1 – Switch to Organic Skincare

I recently started making the switch to organic skincare, and have already seen what a difference good quality, natural products makes. When it comes to skincare, you get what you pay for. Cheap, generic skincare products that are readily available at the drugstore are usually full of inexpensive chemicals that do nothing to nourish your skin at best, or can outright damage your skin at worst.

With organic skincare, you can rest easy knowing the products you put on your skin will gently nourish and nurture your skin, making it healthy, soft and supple—perfect for flaunting at the beach!

For healthy, glowing, summer-ready skin, organic beauty products from a reputable brand, like Well Within Beauty can transform your skin. Well Within Beauty offers a huge range of essential skincare products made from the finest natural and organic ingredients. Their selection includes makeup remover, cleansers and an eye firming serum.

#2 – Moisturize Daily

Warmer days and increased sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin and cause your oil glands to go into overdrive. You may experience oilier skin during the summer, which may tempt you to skip using moisturizer. Don’t do that! Just because your skin is oily does not mean it is properly moisturized. In fact, keeping your skin adequately hydrated actually helps to manage your natural oil production.

The key is to find a lightweight moisturizer that feels comfortable on your skin during the hot summer months. As I have mentioned before, I use almond oil year-round. It feels light, absorbs really quickly and it works wonders on my skin. If using a moisturizing oil doesn’t suit you, avoid thick creams and lotions that can make your skin feel smothered and sweaty in the summer and go for a gel moisturizer. You can also try pat on multiple layers of a hydrating toner.

#3 – Nourish Your Skin from Within

What you put into your body affects the condition of your skin just as much as what you put on it. Nourish your skin from within by taking nutritional supplements, which Well Within Beauty also offers. Supplements packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants protect your skin cells from free radical damage and boost skin cell renewal for a healthy, youthful glow.

Eating fruits and vegetables is great way to nourish your skin as well. Tomatoes are one of my favorite things to eat for my skin, especially in the summer. There is lycopene in tomatoes, which provides natural skin protection by defending your skin from UV radiation. Studies also show that the ingredients in tomatoes help delay wrinkling and keep your skin looking young.

#4 – Exfoliate Gently

Regular exfoliation helps your skin shed dead cells faster, revealing fresh new radiant skin underneath. For a youthful summer glow, exfoliate regularly with a gentle yet effective chemical exfoliator, with AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid). About three times a week, I use Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, which has AHA, jojoba oil, aloe vera and a few other magical ingredients!

Stay away from harsh physical scrubs that can rub your skin raw and cause it to become sensitized or reactive. Treat your skin like you would a newborn baby—with tender, loving care instead of rough scrubbing and rubbing. A lot of facial and body scrubs contain overly harsh physical exfoliators like crushed walnut shells that can damage your skin, or microbeads that are harmful to the environment when washed off.

#5 – Never Skip Sunscreen

My last tip is kind of a no-brainer. You should never, ever skip sunscreen during the summer when the sun’s rays are strongest. You should actually wear sunscreen every day, no matter what the weather, because the sun’s UV rays are so powerful that they can penetrate through clouds, glass and windows. Sun protection is especially important during the summer when people tend to wear lighter clothes that expose more skin.

So far this summer, my favorite sunscreen is by COOLA. I use the one pictured above on my face. It has a smooth non-greasy feeling and a lovely, light tea scent. Be sure to choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum protection and an SPF of at least 30, and wear enough of it to cover all exposed areas of your face and body.  On work days, when I’m not directly in the sun, I use my go-to tinted moisturizer, which is SPF 20.

Hopefully these summer skincare tips will help you discover more nourished and healthy skin this season! Remember that exercising a consistent skincare routine is also key to maintaining healthy skin.

I would love to hear how you take care of you skin during the summer. Do you use organic skincare products or take supplements to improve your skin? Share your favorite skincare products or summer skincare tips in the comments.

Cheers!
