Outfit: Bare Those Legs

With all our summer plans put in place we're looking at only spending two weekends at home from now until mid September. Pretty nuts, huh? We just spent a weekend in Chicago (recap coming tomorrow) and in July alone we'll be spending weekends in the Hamptons, Philly, Bethany Beach and Puerto Rico. August will bring a few more weekend trips and then we leave for Greece for 10 days. I can't even tell you how much I love traveling in the summer - exploring new cities, spending time with friends, and soaking in some sun and ocean breeze while the weather permits. Along with the excitement of the days away comes the dreaded packing job and the prepping for a weekend baring your legs. Being Hispanic and having dark hair definitely makes the whole hairy leg (sorry, but there's no better way to describe it!) a bit of a problem. That's why when I first tried the Veet wax strips I was so impressed. They've now turned into an essential part of my beauty regimen as these wax strips leave my skin baby smooth for up to 28 days. Uh huh. Good, good, good stuff. So you know I have a big stash of these babies stored in my bathroom for the summer time and I plan on wearing short shorts and sun dresses as much as I can while the summer is in full swing. Tell me, do you have any special products and tricks you use to keep your legs silky smooth?
