Summer Style Secrets: The Shiny Pebble


This week's Summer Style Secrets are coming from Catherine

Here are Catherine's style secrets for summer!


Havaianas - the original flip flops, created in Brazil. Every year I buy a couple and they never wear out.  So I have a pretty extensive collection.   I bought these peacock silver ones this year.
 
You can find them here


Get a haircut
Summer free hair is easily achieved with a short do.  Most days in the summer I don't even blow dry my hair… just wash, spray with something silky and go.
 

Go shop for some cute, inexpensive Summer Dresses at Steinmart or Kohls .


The Shiny Pebble's Summer Lemonade
I had a variation of this drink at the River Café (River Cafe) at Prince's Island Park in Calgary.
Combine:  Tbsp of Honey, Juice of half lemon, Sprig of rosemary
Add: Ice, Perrier water (or some other fizzy water), A few raspberries
Drink it with a straw, so you can mix as you go and enjoy the sweet honey first and then drink up the refreshing sparkling water.

  19. I live in dresses, even though people think I'm 12! I did the short hair for locks of love a couple of summers ago and my neck was loving the literal weight of my shoulders and breezy exposure. Again, I looked like I was 12 turned 10. I adore people with short hair and I adore this perfect little list :)

  20. Thanks for sharing the lemonade recipe!:D

    I agree, it's better to have short hair during the summer.:D Wash and go!:D
