Summer Essentials

Summer is all about less is more!  No need to pack on layers and accessorize with chunky jewelry. The days are long and hot, so it's all about trying to stay cool and comfortable.  Summertime definitely means less makeup, less clothes and less worry.  I love just throwing on a touch of brozer and maxi dress for those warm summer nights.  It feels like summer took forever to get here, but I am so ready to embrace the long days.

1. Of course everyone needs a great pair of sunnies.  As if Ray-ban wasn't cool enough, they really have become super chic this season with their stylish "Clubmaster" line.  I love this pair from Nordstrom.com.

2. If you haven't checkout out Love Shack Fancy yet, you have to!  They have THE best summer maxis that are perfect for taking beachy days to nights.  You will live in their Signature Love dress all summer long.

3.  Another summer must-have is the perfect bronzer.  I love Bare Minerals Warmth all-over face color.  It gives you that natural summer glow, plus it has an SPF built in!

4. Every summer goddess needs a floppy hat.  Francesca's has a great selection.  I got their Bonaire Floppy Hat a couple months ago and it follows me to the beach every single time!

5. I have fallen in love with Triangl's colorblock swimsuits.  A great swimsuit is a for-sure summer staple.

6.  If I am not in a summer maxi, my weekends are spent in colorful, flowy cover-ups.  Love this one from H&M!

7.  Living in sandals all summer means investing in a good leather pair.  I love these Sikinos from Calypso St. Barth.

8. Countless trips to the beach need a fun beach bag to hold all your things.  Nordstrom always has a great selection!


  1. I love so many of these pieces that I can't even decide which one I like best!


  2. I've been loving those color block swimsuits lately too! I should probably just pick one up already!


  3. That maxi looks so flowy, and like it might actually keep you cool on a hot summer day!
