My cool and fresh California morning routine

To get myself accustomed to the California heat, that meant making a few easy but effective switches to my morning routine. First, I've streamlined my wardrobe selection by making a big, breezy shirt my go-to.

Next, instead of my usual spritz of perfume I use a soap in the same scent, and I've replaced my moisturizer with a spritz of hydrating rosewater. And speaking of hydration, I drink a full liter of water the moment I wake up. By the time I have my first sip of (iced) coffee, I'm ready for whatever summer has up its sleeve.

Shopping Guide:
1. Evan Healy Rosewater Tonic
2. Byredo soap
3. bkr Water Bottle
4. White Linen Shirt
5. Carefree ActiFresh Pantiliners
