Can you believe it’s already that time of year? The days are so much longer and everyone seems a little less tense (must be all that hot air). Is it me or does summer have its own set of rules- like certain things are acceptable this time of year that might not otherwise be? Everything from work to our wardrobes seem to be a bit more relaxed.

Our hair is a little more effortless (Beach-inspired waves just look better in the summer!) Our makeup is a bit more natural or barely there at all (Because who wants foundation sliding off their face when it’s 100 degrees outside.) Even office hours seem to be a bit more relaxed (3pm on Friday? Sure, why not head home for an early weekend.)

But just because summer means things go a bit more “casual” doesn’t mean that you can let it all go. Below is one of my absolute favorite set of “Summer Rules“ The Open Toed Shoe Pledge. It always makes me laugh and cringe and I hope it will do the same for you.

Speaking of keeping up with some of our appearances, this month we will be announcing our winning dad for our first-ever Dad of the Year Transformation.
