beauty & fashion: June Must-Haves

When the temperatures are starting to consistently stay in the 60’s & 70’s this can only mean one thing. Summer is just around corner! Since June is the month in which we welcome summer, I have put together 4 summer Must-Haves perfect for the new season and warm weather. Whether you are traveling or staying around town this summer, all four of these Minnesota products are certain to keep you cool and chic all summer long. As per usual, all four products are from women-owned Minnesota brands that are all making a difference throughout the Twin Cities. Now, slap on some sunscreen and get ready to kick off summer right with my choice of June Must-Haves!

#1 Lip gloss - T.Kissable

Lip gloss is one of the hottest trend coming back for the summer season. Rock this trend everywhere you go, with T.Kissable lipgloss. This Vegan/Cruelty free lip gloss is perfect for the feminine fashionista instantly adding some shine to your everyday makeup look. Since we tend to focus on skin care over the summer, keep your makeup look fresh, dewy and minimal with a nude or clear lip gloss. Change things up a bit and invest in a bold color pop for lipgloss adding a unique flare to a minimal summer look. Not only does Kissable sell amazing lip gloss and lip care products; but this brand is also all about empowering women and helping each woman become the queen she is meant to be! If that doesn’t bring a smile to your face, I don’t know what will.

#2 Jumpsuit - WAY the Label

What better way to welcome summer than with a brand-new jumpsuit?! In case you didn’t hear, jumpsuits are all the rage again this summer, continuing to really embrace the 1970’s trend theme we noticed in spring. Bring a unique perspective to your jumpsuit collection and invest in the Sonny jumpsuit from WAY the Label. Fall in love with the classic cut but admire the embroidered daisy pattern, immediately adding sunny summer vibes to your look without any effort. Carry your phone and lipgloss in the hidden side pockets, making this jumpsuit not only stylish but functional as well!

How to Style:
Rock this jumpsuit to work by layering it underneath a structured blazer and adding heels, or keep things casually chic by pairing the jumpsuit with a funky pair of espadrilles and a floppy sun hat. Unsure of how to rock this piece throughout the cooler seasons try layering this chic jumpsuit over a fitted turtleneck or underneath a moto jacket, both providing you with warmth and style.

Why WAY?:
What makes WAY the Label such a cool brand is that each piece is designed and handmade right here in Minnesota by an all women team who are determined to bring sustain and ethical fashion to the Twin Cities.
