Every season there are those few special items that help us all get through it! Well, the items in this post are not only my saviors for this summer, they are the same items that have gotten me though every summer for a few years now! So when one of them wears out or runs out, I buy a new one to replace it!
Let’s start with the one, the only BATHING SUIT I personally wear. Since having children we all have those areas we like to hide or camouflage, right? Well, this one does the trick! The quality of the fabrication holds up to days (and years) in the pool, ocean, and wash. It is truly worth every penny and IF you can grab it on sale you are lucky!
Next it’s all about the accessories!! The straw hat! This is honestly the perfect hat for everyone. I seriously looks amazing on everyone. I have to tell you that I actually lost this hat last summer and thought I would look for a different one. I must have tried on dozens of straw hats from everywhere and none of them looked great. So I went and bought this one again and sure enough, LOVED it! The sunglasses! These are the only sunglasses I wear. Love RayBans and love the aviator style. I have had grey lenses, brown lenses and now I have these green lenses (which I have had for a few years now). They are classic and you can’t go wrong with this style.
The Flip Flops! To know me is to know that I wear flip flops all summer and with everything. I wear them with shorts, dresses, and jeans! Casual and dressed up! These are the flip flops I wear and buy EVERY summer. They are durable and comfortable and they always offer trendy prints like leopard and snake print.
My fav denim shorts and tank! This is my uniform all summer. It’s that easy breezy look that you wear all summer. Just hanging at home, going to a bbq, or heading the shore this is the look! First the Tank! This tank is the best fit and light fabrication with out being see through. I don’t even know how many colors I have it in! Now denim shorts are a staple every year. The style may change but the base is the same. This years style that I literally find myself reaching for every day is a little more destructed than last years!
Now let’s talk about self tanner. I don’t use a traditional self tanner. I use Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer. I have been using this for at least 10 years!! It doesn’t make you orange. You don’t need to use a mit to apply it. Using this subtly tans you over 7 days with little to no streaking. And it not only gently tans, moisturizes, it also firms your skin. Love love it!!
Lastly this item is actually a new item that will now become a need every misquote season!! My kids just walk outside this time of year for 5 minutes and end up covered in bug bites…..🤦🏻♀️. If you use this fairly soon after they get the bite it really works! It sucks out the venom and takes the itch and swelling away!! Woo hoo! They say it also works on splinters…..I will
