It is officially summer! Today marks the first day of summer and I am ready for warm weather, afternoons by the pool, and lots of iced tea.
To prepare for the months of sunny weather ahead, I’ve compiled a list of everything I need to be cool and hydrated for what is sure to be a scorcher ahead.
Everything I’ll Be Using This Summer
High SPF Sunscreen
This sunscreen goes on smooth and creamy and instantly melts into skin, yet keeps the sun at bay for a burn-free summer. This will always be my favourite all-over sunscreen, perfect for face and body.
These shoes will get me everywhere this summer, and all the eclectic styles they come in make them perfect for any personality. I plan on wearing these everywhere, from the pool to Trader Joe’s to brunch with the girls.
Perfect Pool Read
While you’re sitting poolside, drink your iced tea with a good book. Rainbow Rowell is one of my favourite authors and Landline is great for older readers. And when you’re done, read one of her other books!
Sweet Peach Blush
If you’re staying out of the heat, still get that perfect sunny glow with a peach blush. This blush is 1) affordable and 2) amazingly natural looking. Your peachy cheeks are perfect for any summer outing.
Girls’ Night Dress
I’m all for a dress I can wear to any brunch, dinner, night out, or party and this is perfect for all occasions. The summer-y coral colour instantly brightens skin and will keep you cool on summer nights.
A special little treat for the beach. And what’s in them is a secret between you and me.
Breezy Beach Shirt
This blouse is perfect paired with white pants or denim shorts. The loose sleeves and cute embroidery make it a great hot weather go-to when you need to be out the door ASAP, but still look easy and breezy.
What is your favourite part of summer?
