10 Tips for Attending an Outdoor Event

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Hello my lovely readers,

It's been a while since I posted. I have been quite busy with life changes and also enjoying the days of sunny Vancouver. Summer is coming up and I bet some of you are going to a wedding or even lots of weddings in the summer! I have some tips for you if you are going to a summer wedding. You can learn some of my tips if you are also going to a summer outdoor event too! We all know know summer is all about concerts, shows, parades and festivals! So here are my tips!

                      ❊ Choose light, loose and bright clothes 

Wearing clothes that let sweat evaporate and keep your body cool will prevent from heat exhaustion. Avoid heavy fabrics and dark colours. Materials like chiffon, rayon, linen and silk are great for summer. 

                                  ❊ Stay clean 

Hygiene is the most important! Having a shower or bath before you attend an event is a must because we will be out with lots of people. Deodorize and also wear perfume. Bring along a travel size toiletries with you that will fit in your clutch. 

                             ❊ Comfortable shoes 

Summer is the time to wear our stunning high heels to match our summer outfits. Standing or dancing in our high heels for too long hurt our feet and also we do lots of different activities in summer. We definitely need to change our shoes and we often don't have time to go home and change so one of my favourite item that I carry with me is a ballerina/flats. There are also foldable flats that are sold at our local drug stores and malls. 

                                ❊ Sunscreen 

Make sure you wear a sunscreen that protects your skin from UVA and UVB. Here are some of my favourite sunscreens for your face and body:

                    ❊ Waterproof, weather sweat proof makeup 

In order prevent your make up from water, sweat and rain, make sure you wear waterproof make up. You can wear a waterproof/sweatproof foundation, but I definitely recommend wearing a waterproof mascara and eyeliner. We never know when we will have a water fight!

                                                                 Stay hydrated 

It is very important to stay hydrated at all times even if we are not going outside. Bring water with you or make sure you get water at the event that you are attending. We should be drinking at least 2L of water a day but more if we are doing activities and going out in the sun. Also remember to choose healthy drinks if you don't want to drink just water. 

                              ❊ Wear layers 

This is one of my most favourite tip for you all! Wear layers of clothes in summer. Most summer days are hot and the nights are chill so if you wear layers then you can take off and put on whenever you want!

                              ❊ Sunglass 

We all don't want wrinkles around our eyes and also to show our under eye dark circles from all the sleepless nights we had in the summer so wear a sunglass that compliments your face shape and also the one that reflects your personality and style!

                               ❊ Umbrella 

Rain or shine, we never know if the weather will change and it will start to rain. Bring an umbrella with you so that you don't get wet and sick, protect your skin from the sun or just to compliment your outfit.

                                 ❊ Safety ❊ 

At last but not at least make sure you stay safe at all times! Make sure you know where you are going and how to get home. Don't drink and drive. Have a company with you if you are attending a concert or a festival. Have fun safely!
