My Summer Essentials

It's summa summa summa time!! I have great childhood memories of summer, and I hope to for Lincoln to enjoy this season and all it has to offer, as well. 

Here are a few of my summer essentials. 

1.  I am a firm believer that you can never have too many tank tops.  I live in tanks all summer long.  The one pictured, from Old Navy, is so versatile.  It can be worn casually, or out on the town. But let's face it, the only place I'm going is the playground :)

2.  My Kindle Touch.  LOVE this little device.  I opted against the Kindle Fire, because I wanted my pages to resemble a book...which helps with reading outside.  When Lincoln is busy playing outside, I love to sit in the shade and relax with my Kindle.

3.  Long flowy skirts, like the one pictured {Old Navy}

4.  Sunglasses!!!  Heck, these are not just a summer essential, these are an EVERYDAY essential!!  I love me some sunnies.  But, I never spend really more than $10 for a pair, because I tend to break them more frequently than I'd like to admit!

5.  So these are actually a cute little pajama set from Old Navy, but seriously I could bum around the house on this on a hot day!  I love it.  ::runs to to purchase::

6.  My Camelbak water bottle, because we all know how important a little H2O is, especially in the summertime!  I tend to drink more water if I fill up my fun water bottle, than if I were to just fill up a glass or drink bottled water. 

7.  This cute wristlet from Vera Bradley in the Watercolor print.  I currently have a different print, but I think this one is perfect for summer. 

8.  Aveeno sunblock in SPF 55.  Because skin cancer is not cool, kids. 

9.  Fun in the sun nail polish.  These colors from Essie just scream summer!!

10. Nars lip gloss in Orgasm.  Need I say more?

So there you have it.  My top ten essentials for summer.  Next week I plan on posting Lincoln's top ten summer essentials!!

What are your go to summer essentials? 



  1. Hi! I'm new around here!

    LOVE that first tank from Old Navy and my Kindle is in my purse practically everywhere I go! I have the Nars blush in Orgasm, but I've never tried the lip gloss. I will have to add it to my list next time I go to Sephora!

  2. I just bought some skirts from Old Navy...fold over cotton ones that will accomodate this whole pregnant belly thing...can't beat that! Flowy skirts are really the best for get a little breeze and no wedge ;) And OF COURSE sunglasses! I need to try #10...

  3. I NEED that skirt NOW! lol, and /i love those nail colors! Im going for a pedicure tomorrow and def want a color similar to those! Great picks hun

  4. I have an eInk eReader too for the same reason. I want to be able to read it outside.
