Our Summer Essentials


With today being the first day of Summer we thought it was perfect timing to share our Summer Essentials!

Paired with Summer is usually sunshine, so even though we have included some in the post below, we’d like to give everyone a formal warning to use their sunscreen!

Our favorite things about Summer include (but are not limited to!) wearing a cute summer-y outfit, entertaining, eating fresh and spending time outdoors - and we’ve got some great picks for each of those things.

Check out our Summer Essentials and let us know what you think!

Did we miss anything that you think should be included in our Summer Essentials? We’d love to know!

Whether you're taking off to the beach this summer, relaxing poolside or looking for a few simple pieces to give your home an easy summer refresh, here are my 2018 must-have essentials. From travel-friendly accessories to tropical prints and low-maintenance plants, these are the items I can' t live without. I love the vacation vibes I get from a simple B&W palm frond print. A chic cotton bandana will keep you cool worn around your neck or on your head. Pack light with a roll-up sunhat that takes up minimal space in your carryon- this one will keep the top of your head nice and cool. Skip the sunburn and instead build your tan with a self-tanner and keep pores minimized with a refreshing rose toner. You can't go wrong with a classic black one-piece or bikini-I love this one with a cutout out by Mara Hoffman. Splurge on a pair of retro inspired cat-eye sunglass and pair with a woven beach bag, two of the season's biggest trends.
