I wore this dress yesterday and just love it! The pattern is so bright and pretty, it’s comfortable and flowy, and it’s pretty affordable too (less than $50). I want to re-wear it again on a date night! But I also want to point out the shoes – the SHOOOEEES I think are the main highlight of the outfit! These embroidered wedges come in a few different colors. Just a warning – they are TALL! I don’t have trouble walking around in them, but if you aren’t used to wearing heels you may. They’re true to size… and I’m slightly obsessed with them. *insert heart eye emoji here*
I also wanted to answer a few of your questions about the type of spray tan I get! In these pictures my spray tan is about a week old (I got it last Saturday) and as you can see it has lasted quite a while. I get spray tans every few weeks in the summer (it is so much better for you than cooking your skin in the sun!) so I’ve experimented a lot with colors/booths/additives. Here are my tips:
*I always get the Mystic Tan in dark. If you’re going to go with Mystic, get either the light or the dark, not the medium. The medium has orange tones in it! (There are two types of spray tan booths: The Mystic and the Versa. My mom prefers the Versa, while I prefer Mystic. It is personal preference, I encourage you to try both!)
*Always buy the “sticky feet.” They are foot-shaped adhesives that prevent the bottom of your feet from soaking up the excess tanning fluid. If you don’t get these, the bottoms of your feet will turn a nasty dark orange color! They are only $1 or $2 more.
*Add a scent (or two!). The scents smell really good and cover up the “spray tan smell.” I really like the “warm vanilla” scent and I usually add two of them to the spray tan.
*Add the accelerator additive. I prefer the accelerator to the “hyper tan” additive because the hyper tan bronzes you right away – which gets all over your clothes and bedsheets. The accelerator doesn’t leave any bronze residue behind and also balances the pH levels of your skin – it ends up giving you a really beautiful bonze hue.
In conclusion, I always ask for: the Mystic tan in “dark,” with two scents and the accelerator additive. I also buy the sticky feet to go along with it. My best advice is to get the spray tan done at night (most tanning booths are open until 10 or 11 p.m. at night) and then go to sleep right after. You have to wait eight hours before taking a shower, and it’s easier to sleep through the night and wake up tan!
By the way, this post isn’t sponsored at all, I just have been getting a lot of questions about spray tans so I wanted to answer here! Let me know if you have any other questions!
