☼ My Top Five Summer Essentials☼

Tuesday, July 28, 2015


While everyone is ready to accept school with open arms I'm still grasping on to the last straws of summer. I don't think there will ever exist a long enough holiday away from those tedious term papers. While back to school commercials are slowly creeping on us that doesn't mean we can't enjoy every last bit of those long lazy summer days and sun kissed rays. And, if I'm not mistaken some of you lucky babes are escaping on holiday so I'm definitely not the only one who is running away from those summer blues. Well enough chit chat and on to the essentials~

Sunnies
A super rad pair of sunglasses are a staple during the overwhelmingly hot summer months. Not only do they protect your precious eyeballs, but throw on a pair of these bad boys and you'll look effortlessly chic in no time. I bought these insanely adorable heart sun rays at American Eagle---perfect for festival season~

Summer Fragrance
I don't know about you, but when the seasons change I love my fragrance to match. Currently I'm loving Pure Seduction by Victoria Secret and Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Both are very sweet scents with light floral undertones~

Summer Book
The summer was meant for catching up on your reading. Whether you're taking a dip with Ernest Hemingway for the first time or sinking your teeth in that thriller of the year---there's nothing compared to reading a good book. Currently I'm re-reading one of my favorites---The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories by HitRecord. These tiny stories come from voices around the world and will sing to your heart in a beautiful, but ironic way. I highly recommend it!

Sunscreen
While this isn't pictured above it may be the most important! All I can say is if you think you've put on enough sunscreen you probably haven't. Go ahead and put on that second or third coat on---your skin will thank me later. Looking for a new sunscreen? I've heard tons about tarte's new Tartegaurd. Definitely on my wishlist~

Sun Hat
I'm obsessed with sun hats---the floppier the better I like to say~ They are so cute and just scream beach babe. Plus they give your noggin some extra protection. It's a win-win situation.
Beach babes for the win~

I am so not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. I think I've got the case of the summer blues. Well maybe I'm ready to say goodbye to the insane heat wave we've been getting, but I've got my summer essentials to back me up so I think I'll survive.
What about you?
What are your summer essentials?
