Temperatures are finally heating up and so are summer trends. The key to my summer dressing is ease. It’s too hot to fuss with layers and too many bells and whistles so here are some of my top picks to keep you cool for the summer.
BLANKNYC Leopard Shorts
Leopard print and distressed denim one? Be still my heart! I am nuts for both the fit and price of these shorts. I pair them with everything from a white blouse to a graphic print tee.
Arizona Copper Birkenstocks
Not your basic comfort shoes. I have been living in these the last few weeks. They are a dream to walk on and the metallic sheen make it clear these ain’t your grandma’s Birkenstocks
Ray-Ban Unisex Brow Bar Sunnies
Part handbag, part art. Okay, mostly art as you can’t have your purse inners a mess when carrying this. It does however hold all your brunch and beach essentials and looks fab with any outfit!
Cult Gaia Mini Ark Handbag
Part handbag, part art. Okay, mostly art as your purse inners can’t be a mess when carrying this. It does however hold all your brunch or beach essentials and looks fab with any outfit!
Pily Q Joy Lace Coverup
Pily Q has quickly become my go to for well made and crazy flattering bathing suits. This cover up is magic worn alone over a suit or layered on top of distressed denim and slides for a poolside lunch.
Brixton Joanna Straw Hat
I love me a good summer hat for two reasons. One, they camouflage greasy beach hair and two, they keep (more) wrinkles at bay. The brim to crown ratio is sheer perfection on this hat and the straw keeps your head cool on warm days.
Metallic Salon Slide Clips
You’ll find these Free People metallic hair clips in every side pocket of every purse I own. Of course they are cute as can be, but they are also super functional and the perfect way to keep those summer fly aways in their place.
Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen
The older I get, the more I nuts I am about sunscreen. Wether I am headed to the beach or just out and about, I slather on this sunscreen daily. It’s incredibly light weight and the citrus and basil notes are a far cry from the chemical smell of the sunscreens of yesterday.
Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in Promiscuous
I like my summer make-up to stay put as long as possible, through sun and surf and everything in between. This Nars velvet lip pencil goes on silky smooth and stays put. The bold color adds a nice pop to a summer tan.
Free People Rumors Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is the perfect topper for anything in the summer- bathing suit, sundress, t-shirt and cutoffs, anything! The wash on this jacket reads summer and the fit is to die for.
