Summer Favorites!


Hey Summer Friends!


Thought I’d pop in and share with you a new of my favorite things for the summer…I’ve been stocking up in preparation!


Let’s start.

These shorts from Old Navy

cn6049446I have a few different colors and have found myself living in them so far this summer.  They’re inexpensive, comfortable and cute!


Also I am obsessed with this belt from Noonday.  OBSESSED.  Unfortunately it’s on backorder right now and I am crying.



The bag that I have been carrying this summer so far is this cute Gidget Tote from Consuela.

classic-gidgetMy friend who lives in Austin first told me about these bags.  So I ordered one and I love it for summer.  Totally cute and unique!


Ok, not to get too personal, but this bra from Aerie

img-thingActually it’s called a “bralette”.  It is so so so incredibly comfortable.  Another girlfriend of mine turned me onto these.

Obviously, it’s not the greatest for support…but if you are anything like me, you like to have a little coverage when you’re home or sleeping, but don’t need a full-on big -girl bra 24/7.  This is the perfect alternative.  So cute and comfy and great for throwing on in the morning or when you get home.  I own many!


I might have touted this maxi dress from Target on last year’s list, but it’s still on of my summer favorites.

Also this shirt

_7939434Bought it at Nordstrom and I LOVE it. LOVE it.  You need to buy it.  That’s it. :)



And since it is summer there will be swimsuits worn.  But more importantly, swimsuit COVER UPS will be worn.  This fun wrap cover up is my new favorite!

swimwrapIt’s like a towel, kinda, with 2 arm straps that you wrap around your body in a totally flattering way! Love!


Next up my favorite flip flips.

shoes_iaec1295367Sanucks Yoga Mat Flip Flops are the most comfortable ever.  They come in a ton of colors and are actually made out of yoga mat material.  They are so cushy, but totally hold up!  Love mine and own 2 pairs!



I bought these earrings when I was in Austin…

A while back Kristan called me and told me about this…

a230649.001It’s Self Tanning Body Wash from Josie Maran.  You apply it in the shower and rinse it off and it gives you a gradual tan!  It’s only available on QVC now, and is actually waitlisted…but I put myself on the waitlist and it shipped in 2 days.  I really like this, as there is no weird smell AT ALL…and the mess goes down the shower drain.

I found the color to be very forgiving and gradual, much like a gradual tan lotion.  The application process is easy. Just follow the directions on the box. I actually watched a few You Tube Videos too and they helped me with some tips.

The most common problem that I read was streaking, but I didn’t have any of that.  Such a fun idea and I know it’s only a matter of time until drugstore brands come out with a less expensive version!


Finally, summer nails.

DSC04136Love this color Haute as Hello by Essie…it’s a coral-cantelope-ish color!


Anyhow, those are some of my favorites for the summer!!  Let me know if there is anything you are loving!
