Summer is almost here and I am counting the days… well, actually the minutes until school is out and we can enjoy some lazy days at the pool. Today I’m sharing my summer essentials to help you have the best summer ever!
Beauty & Sun
This sunscreen is my absolute favorite. It smells divine while protecting you from harmful rays. Grab a bottle or two so you’re ready to hit the pool, the park or the beach. I also love this perfume this time of year. It smells exactly like you hope you smell on a summer day… a mix of tropical scents and sun. Get a bottle for yourself or as a gift for the friend who shares their beach house with you! After all your fun in the sun, you’ll want a deep conditioner to revive your pool or beach hair. I discovered this one a few years ago… it’s technically “ethnic hair care” but I love it for my color-treated blonde. It smells great, too.
I’m always thrilled to relinquish my lunch-packing duties at the end of the school year and then I remember… they still need lunch in the summer! Ha! This quesadilla maker is my go-to for quick and easy meals. You just need some tortillas and shredded cheese. I often throw in leftover chicken, too.
Summer is all about taking it easy and getting out to see friends in the beautiful sunshine. These sandals are my absolute favorite to wear on a warm day. They go with everything. Seriously… everything. They are a great investment. Plus, they are on sale! I’ve owned these sunglasses for several years and I always get compliments on them. The pop of pink makes them extra cute… another thing you can wear every single day.
Bag It Up
It’s no small feat to pack up all the things you’ll need for a day at the pool or beach so you might as well love the bag you take along. I’m loving this flamingo tote (it’s less than $20!) and this monogrammed straw bag. Don’t forget to throw these flamingo towel clips in… they are a game-changer! Lastly, this cooler bag keeps a days’ worth of snacks and drinks chilled while looking fabulous.
Here’s to the arrival of sweet, sweet summer!
