September is here but the heat is a blazing! In fact, here in LA it’s the hottest it’s been all summer long (nearly 100 every single day!). In effort to not melt, the beach and a pool are a must along with iced cold beverages on repeat.

Because it’s simply too hot to wear just about anything except for cute little dresses, I recently went on a dress/romper buying bender at Urban Outfitters with one simple rule: everything must be under $70. After all, fall is upon us….

From cute little floral numbers to bohemian breezy dresses, I found a handful of darling pieces that fit the bill and have been living in them to keep cool. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Lucca Couture Floral Chiffon Long-Sleeve Romper
2. Cooperative Layered Dress
3. Kimchi Blue Scarlett Fit + Flare Dress
4. Urban Renewal Remade Plain Jane Open Back Romper
5. Honey Punch Knot-Front T-Shirt Dress
6. Kimchi Blue Cutwork Tropical Sun Dress

Plus here are more great dresses for under $70:

3 Ways To Reduce Toxins In Your Body

reduce toxins
We live in a world filled with toxins. We hear about toxins in our food, water, and air, but we also hear about “toxic” relationships and “toxic” thoughts.

The cocktail of toxins we are exposed to everyday creates health issues that we are all experiencing to different degrees. Commonplace complaints such as headaches, low energy, bowel irregularities, allergies, depression, skin issues and more are largely caused by overloaded detox systems in our bodies.

But we can change this. Here are three ways to reduce toxins in your body:

1. Eat Whole foods.
The major source of chemicals and toxins comes from our food. Look for whole foods free of preservatives, conservatives, and coloring agents. And when available, choose chemical-free and organic.

2. Use chemical-free cosmetics, body care, and cleaning products.
Over the last few years, this topic has been written about extensively. We now have lots of companies that are creating chemical-free products. You can always check how clean your products are at the Environmental Working Group’s consumer guides here.
