The Art of Mornings: Summer Wind

Sydney E. Carver is the founder and voice behind the fashion and lifestyle blog, Summer Wind. Carver founded Summer Wind in early 2009 as an outlet to express her love for timeless, classic fashion and named the site after one of her favorite Frank Sinatra songs, The Summer Wind. Below Sydney shares how she spends her morning in our new Citrus collection

 
The first thing I do when I wake up is...

Make coffee. Caffeine is always the most important!

My skin survives on...

I swear by the Aveda Tulasara Wedding Masque face cream and eye cream. I also swear by Tula products and Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask.

The song playing in the background...

Probably something Frank Sinatra or Van Morrison. (Editors note: Sydney creates amazing monthly Spotify playlists- be sure to follow her!)

I (try to) incorporate wellness by...

Lots of water every day! I also believe everything in moderation!

Breakfast is my time to...

Relax and prepare for the day. I'm not really a morning person, so I give myself the time I need to wake up slowly!

If I had nowhere to be until the afternoon, I would...

Sleep! I'm such a fan of sleep and use any extra free time to catch up on it! 

I "brighten" up my mornings by...

I love making a full breakfast. I'm on the go a lot, so I usually survive on coffee and a granola bar, so there's nothing I love more than making a full breakfast: eggs, bacon, avocado, etc.
