Summer Glow (See Jane Emit)

Confession:  I love spray tans.  It makes me feel instantly more confident and radiant; it's an instant pick me up,if you will.  I wear sunscreen every day and don't spend a lot out time outside these days (see: indoor job), but I really enjoy having a glow about me.  I'm all about embracing what works for you but I'll readily admit that when I'm pale, I have a sallow tone at best.  Don't worry, you'll see it in full force this winter.

that dress is adorable! i've never tried a spray tan, seems much healthier than how i go about it :)

See this adorable look that you've achieved here? That's kind of what I was going for today. I think I may have missed the mark a bit. You look fantastic.

Anyway, yes, summer. Before I had my daughter, I used to actually go tanning (*gasp*!). I'm terrified to do that anymore, so now I just try to embrace my Casper-like lack-of-glow. I'm too busy (lazy?) to get a spray tan or use self-tanners that make you wait for them to dry before you can get dressed.

uggh tanning here too! (Trying to get more into the spray tans more, but without fail I always have an orange blotch somewhere! Even after years of working at a tanning salon - you would think I would get the process down!) I have only gone in the booth once a week or two just so I am not transparent! I am pale pale pale and work indoors - so I feel your pain!

Kristin said...

Those Crew shoes are SO fabulous! Are they a recent score?

Chas said...

You look amazing and I love that skirt! I've never tried a spray tan but would like to. What brand works the best?

i have to admit, i feel like since i officially gave up tanning beds while in college, i still trick myself into thinking natural sun outside is ok! so that...and almost nightly trips to get ice cream!

I totally agree! This outfit really pops on the tan too :) Happy to have found your blog today!

That is a really great spray tan! It looks perfectly natural and you definitely have a pretty glow. Love the outfit, that skirt is fabulous on you. By the way, I went to H&M over the weekend to get that blue and white striped skirt you wore last week and they were all out of my size. :( Oh well.

Great color! I've never been spray tanning only because I have yet to hear about a great salon in my area...arggg.

Dear girl, you put together the most STUNNING looks. This simple, but ridiculously chic, outfit is absolute perfection. Love that bright skirt, and you DO look super summery with your tan!

You know how to do a spray tan, Anna Jane. Hot damn that looks good.

I'm always scared I'll come out a streaky mess of prisoner in a jacket picking up trash on the side of the highway orange. That would be my luck.

xoxo,
