Coco Loco

Nothing says summer weather like a white outfit on (fake) tanned skin. I'm partnered with longdistanceloving today for a Winning in White link-up post.

I decided to add a pop of pink via these adorable Joe Fresh shorts.

Shirt: Suzy Shier
Shorts: Joe Fresh
Shoes: Aldo

Coco Loco

1.5 oz light rum
1 oz cream of coconut liqueur
0.5 oz amaretto
dash of grenadine
few dashes of milk
0.5 oz pineapple juice
 0.5 cup of ice

Combine in a blender and serve in a fancy glass!

For those of you who've yet to accept your pale skin (I wish I could say I like my natural skin tone), I've finally found my can't-live-without product. My friend and hairstylist introduced me to Fake Bake Flawless several months ago, and it's the best sunless tanner I've found. You apply the spray onto a mitten and then rub it on. It dries really fast and doesn't have that gross DHA smell. I'll try to do a dedicated before/after post soon.

Fake Bake did well for me in Jamaica, except for one day where it came off my chest a bit. I think that mishap was due to the higher alcohol content in the spray sunscreen I was using, so I switched back to lotion.

I tan very minimally naturally and since I work in cancer care, I'm insanely against trying to get a tan the traditional way.

Do you use sunless tanner? If so, what are your favorite products?

First, I love those shorts. I can't wait to break out my patterned shorts this weekend. I am a huge fan of sunless tanners because I too have trouble accepting my pale skin. I ordered a bathing suit from VS a few months ago and got a free sunless tanner. It smells TERRIBLE but I love the results. I have been using it here and there to work on my legs for the past few weeks but I can't bring myself to put it on my arms because the smell is SO bad. I am a fan of the Jergens line too! Have a great weekend!

White looks great on tan skin-real or fake!

Cute shorts! I'll have to try out that fake bake stuff; I hate the way sunless tanner smells!
