Summer is here! It's been an interesting start to our summer here in SoCal, but with July starting, things are bound to warm up. And gearing up for the all the sunshine, I have pulled together my favorite summer time items. You can find me sporting these things all season long!
These remain a staple in my wardrobe all year 'round, but they get constant use during the long summer days. I like them all from the inexpensive Target finds to the high end designer brands. Even though I don't mind mixing up the highs and lows, I always stick to a version of a cat eye glass. I think that shape pairs best with my square face. Currently, I am loving my new Krewe Monroe 24k Cateye sunglasses. The awesome thing about this New Orleans based brand is if you break your glasses, they will replace them for free, they also come with a lifetime warranty. Talk about buying with confidence!
I love a good hat. They are the perfect summer accessory and they're great for keep those harsh sun rays off your face. My signature hat style is a trilby, but depending on my mood you can catch me in anything from a dad hat to a visor as I try to keep the sun out of my eyes and off my fair skin. Plus, they add that touch of pizzazz to any outfit!
Out of everything in my closet, my Tory Burch Miller sandals get the most love. I'd say I wear them 90% of the time. They are so versatile, and being on the pricier side for a sandal I make sure to get my use out of them. My favorite ones are the black patent leather, because they are so easy to dress up or down. An added bonus, they won't get destroyed if you wear them to the pool.
Staying hydrated is so important, and why you'll never catch me without one of my reusable water bottles. I take them with me everywhere! I'll stock my bag with bottles for the whole fam if we're out and about. Water is always a must for us, but especially in the rising heat. I have been loving this Mira bottle for over a year now. This bottle holds 25 ounces! I like to drink a minimum of 3 to ensure I'm properly hydrated. The best thing about this bottle is it keeps my water super cold all day long, even if it's in the heat. Nothing like a cold refreshing sip of water after being in the hot, hot sun!
Summertime is a great time of year to get lost in a book. With life so hectic and on-the-go, it's nice to unwind at night with a hardback. I am old school when it comes to books. I don't own a kindle, and I have read a few e-books, but there is nothing like holding a good paperback in your hands (at least to me). My favorite book that I've read this year has been, Rachel Hollis', "Girl, Wash Your Face." I can't seem to get enough inspirational and self-help books these days. Maybe I'll toss in a fun fictional novel this summer to transport me to another world for a bit... or I'll finish up "Girl, Stop Apologizing." Possibly both!
I am ready for fun in the sun this summer! These favorites will definitely be making their appearances all season long. Most of them will all be used in the same day. To know me, is to know that I am a creature of habit; I like what I like. I am wishing you all a fun-tastic summer! Stay safe and stylish, friends.
