It’s May 1, and here in NYC the sun is shining, things are in bloom, and it seems as if Bare Leg/Flip Flop Commuting Weather has finally arrived. (Of course, we all know that you’re not supposed to walk for miles in flip flops, but everyone here does anyway.) I was thinking it might be fun to have a conversation of some of the best products you’ve bought that can help working women through the summer and changing seasons. Some ideas:
- Silver Linings, which are shoe inserts with antimicrobial silver ions to help de-funk your shoes (or keep them from smelling in the first place)
- Zakkerz, which help you temporarily hem your pants with magnets
- Sunscreen in a brush — I haven’t tried this yet, but I just ordered some for my son (Tickle Time) and noticed while researching it that bareMinerals makes some as well. Given that I hate the greasy feel of sunscreen on my face, I’m looking forward to seeing how this works.
- A wrap. I’ve sung the praises of your basic wrap before, but I think they’re particularly great for the office at this time of year. A) If you’ve layered a blazer on top of a dress or lightweight top and are still freezing, you can add a wrap on top of the blazer. B) You can use it to cover your legs if you’re freezing in a skirt. C) Add length/coverage to your skirts while you’re sitting (I explain this more fully here).
Readers, which are some of the products you count among your best summer finds?
