WOW its June 12th! This year has gone by so fast and it seems just like yesterday it was Christmas. I have some very important news. I haven’t been writing as frequently as I would like because I am moving from Seattle to Dallas,TX. I leave Seattle this Monday, the 16th! AHHH it is all so surreal. I will be spending a week in a half in my home town of Laguna Beach, so look forward to some very beachy inspired posts. Enough about me though, let’s talk about summer! I have compiled a must-have list for this summer. I own all of these items and love them!
Must Have List Summer 2014
1) Triangl Bikini
Up first an absolute necessity, the bikini. I love Triangl bikini’s because they are made from neoprene (the fabric that wetsuits are made from). There are multiple styles and a ton of fun colors and prints. This is an Australian company so you have to pay $20 for international shipping but the bikini itself is only $80 so it is a great price for a super cute bikini.
2) Frank Coffee Scrub
OMG this stuff is absolutely magical. The scrub targets cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne with roasted and ground robusta coffee beans. It will smooth your lumps and bumps too! It’s also from Australia but you get free shipping so it’s only $14. I love this product and I highly recommend buying this.
3) Free People Crossbody Bag
This bag is AMAZING, the tan color is perfect for summer and it is just the right size to fit a wallet, phone, lipgloss, car keys ,a kind power bar and a few other necessities. the best part is that this great bag is only $42! I know shocking especially coming from free people. This bag also comes in black.
4) Flower Crown
A summer outfit isn’t complete without a flower crown. My favorite place to to buy flower crowns is from flower crown society on Etsy. They are handmade and the quality is superb. The best part about flower crowns is that putting one on instantly makes an outfit more airy and boho.
5) Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are my go to in the summer. They are so flowy and fun. A great maxi dress is an essential for summer because they are so easy and you can dress them up or play them down. Nordstrom, Free People and Madewell have great options.
Duh…Sunglasses are a must when it is sunny and hot! On top of being a great accessory (hello Instagram) they actually do protect your eyes and if your spending your whole summer at the beach like I am, sunglasses will become your new BFF! My favorite pair is my Gucci oversized ones. My advice, go to Nordstrom and choose a brand and style that works best for you.
7) Summer 2014 Playlist
Make sure before heading out to the beach with your speakers that you have an awesome playlist on your iPhone! Music makes a day at the beach or party so much better! Make sure to include……
1) Riptide – Vance Joy
2) Mess Around- Pepper
3) Washing dishes – Jack Johnson
4) We are tonight – Billy Currington
5) Shot Reverse Shot – Jack Johnson
6) Play It Again – Luke Bryan
7) Pumpin Blood- NONONO
8) Jump Right In – Zac Brown Band
9) Beat of The Music – Brett Eldredge
