1) Most worn nail polish
This is a tough one because I usually change my nail polish once a week or so and I hate repeating myself too often. Here are a few colors I've been loving this summer (as you can tell, I love pink nails!):
|OPI - Mod About You (bright pastel pink... if that even makes any sense)|
|OPI - La Paz-itively Hot (hot pink with purple iridescence)|
|China Glaze - Shocking Pink (neon pink)|
|China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy (neon coral)|
|Essie - Van D'Go (light pinky peach)|
2) Most worn scent
Since I work in an office, I don't tend to wear perfume often in order to be considerate to those who might have perfume allergies. However, when I go out I almost always grab for my Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume. It is just the perfect scent on me and I love it to death! The best part about it is that it can be worn all year long - it's not too fruity, floral, sweet, etc.
3) Most worn hair product
I have been using and loving the Macadamia Oil Spray in my hair - it's a lighter version of the original oil they came out with. I won't go into too much detail about it because I'm planning on writing up a more thorough post on this stuff soon but I spray it onto my wet hair after a shower and comb it through.
I've also been using the Federic Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Beachcomber Leave-In Conditioner when I don't feel like using the oil. This stuff helps boost moisture, softness and shine as well as blocks UV to prevent fading from the sun. Even if it didn't do anything for my hair, I would apply it just for the scent - it smells exactly like Pina Coladas. It's definitely a great product to bring if you're planning on going to the beach or pool (just spray it onto your wet hair).
4) Most worn bag
It has definitely been my Kate Spade Small Cobble bag. I love it so much that I want it in all the different colors! I really like the fact that it has short handles as well as a long strap so that I can wear it as a cross-body bag when needed. Although black isn't a very summery color, I wear it often so my bag matches most of the time.
5) Most worn shoes
I got these cute bow sandals at Marshalls back in May and I have definitely gotten good use out of them. I had never heard of the brand before but one of my co-workers said she saw them at The Bay for $150.. and I paid $20 for them. Gotta love a great deal, especially when bows are involved!
6) Most worn accessories
I usually stick to the same jewellery every day which includes my engagement ring (duh!), Pandora bracelet, swarovski crystal stud earrings, Guess watch and Tiffany&Co. infinity necklace. I also usually wear my Versace sunglasses on sunny days.

7) Most worn clothing item
I don't know how the weather has been where you live but it has been so incredibly hot here. I bought a bunch of Old Navy v-neck camis at the beginning of summer and find myself wearing them often. I love the v-neck because it's not the usual boring cami. They're simple, colorful (I have one in black, white, pink and blue) and comfortable - perfect for a hot summer day either paired with shorts or a skirt. These will definitely transition into Fall/Winter since they're perfect to layer under sweaters and cardigans and the best part is that they're super inexpensive!
8) Most worn foundation
I hate wearing liquid/cream foundation when it's hot so I stick to a mineral powder like MAC's Mineralized Skinfinish Natural (in Medium-Dark) on the daily. I love love love this stuff! I just apply it with a big fluffy brush and I'm good to go!
9) Most worn blush and/or bronzer
I switch up my blushes pretty often but since I tend to get a little darker during the summer months, I've ditched the NYC Sunny bronzer and have been using NARS Casino instead. I love applying it with a MAC 187 brush.
10) Most worn lip product
Nars Angelika lipgloss hands down. I love wearing it alone or on top of pretty much any nude or pink lipstick. The color definitely makes me put up with the nasty plastic smell and taste. If you're weary of wearing bright pink lipstick, definitely check this gloss out - it adds color without being too in-your-face!
11) Most worn mascara
My favorite mascara of all time (I always go back to this one) - L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black. If you love voluminous lashes and haven't tried this yet I really have no idea what you're waiting for. GO GO GO!
12) Most worn eyeshadow
I am honestly so lazy and I feel like the summer months are a great time to pull off the natural glowy look so I almost never do a full eyeshadow look. With that said, I always highlight under my brows and in the inner corners of my eye. To do so, I usually grab MAC's Naked Lunch eyeshadow which is a nice shimmery nude with a touch of peach (perfect for my warm complexion). I sometimes dab a little on the middle of my lid using my finger to add a touch of sparkle and dimension.
And there you have it - my most worn things of Summer 2012! If you have a blog or Youtube channel, I tag you to create a post/video listing yours. If not, definitely mention your current summer faves in my comments, I'm always looking to try new stuff out!
