Favorite Things: Summer Edition

Happy Tuesday friends! Thank you all for your kind comments on the shots of our home. It keeps me going to hear your sweet words, even when I feel completely overwhelmed by seemingly endless boxes of "stuff." We'll get unpacked someday, right??!

Anyway, I wanted to share some things I've been loving this summer that help me beat the heat and stay looking and feeling fresh instead of totally wilty (it's been over 100 degrees here every day for weeks!).

Favorite Things: Summer Edition

1. Stripey Straws
For sipping sweet iced tea on our balcony.

2. Vintage Lace Tunic
This top is so airy and light that I can feel cool and comfortable while still looking put together (and it helps me resist my urge to throw on sport shots and tank tops every day : ) From Forever21.

3. OPI Passion Nail Lacquer
My go-to color has always been Sweetheart, but I'm loving the Passion shade this summer because it's still soft, but has more of a coral undertone instead of a white/ballet pink undertone. Love it for a subtle drop of color!

4. Aviators
A must in the summer sunshine. I may or may not have had a sunburn in the shape of these babies all raccoon style on my face...

5. Country Chic by Bath and Body Works
I'm OBSESSED with this scent! Love it!! I smooth the lotion on before bed and spritz with the body mist before heading out the door to keep things light and fresh.

6. Cotton Stripe Pouch
Perfect to throw things in for the beach, or to use as a small clutch while running around in the summer heat. The fabric is gorgeous, and matches my beach tote. Both are from Aerie.

7. Metallic Flip Flops
These are the comfiest flip flops, and aren't too slouchy. I feel like I look at least a little polished while wearing summer's favorite shoe. From Gap.

8. Tocca Brigitte Perfume
This is the perfume I wore on my wedding day. I'm a hard sell as far as perfume goes, but this scent is beautiful.

There you have it, just a few things that are making me happy and keeping me fresh this summer. How are you beating the heat?
