Summer time is just a few short weeks away! Say whaaaattt. Maybe you live in a place that’s already hot and sunny, but here in the PNW, it takes a bit longer for those steamy summer temps to hit. So until that happens, I’m dreaming of sun-drenched days and time spent living it up outside. Mmmm. Yes.
To celebrate impending good weather and warm nights, I’ve gathered up some of my favorite summer must-have products that will make this season extra special! To check out an item, simply click on the photo and magically be transported!
Summer Must-Haves: For the Home
Why not change up your home a bit with the coming season? Invest in some light and bright bedding that will be cool to sleep in on warm summer nights. Look for tropical or coastal-inspired decor to bring the beach home or snag the perfect picnic blanket. Make sure you’re party ready with fun servingware and decorations. Cultivate the perfect relaxation spot for your morning tea or afternoon siesta. And you can never go wrong with packing a punch with fun pops of bright colors! Aqua, coral, palm green, and sunshine yellow are always winners.
Summer Must-Haves: Fashion
Summertime means airy fabrics and tons of fun colors! Tassels are IN this summer and you can find the bright little poms on everything from hats to shoes, to jewelry and more! Pops of gold, quirky patterns, and anything with watermelon as a design addition are also fun. Look for a perfect tote that you can use all summer long and a great pair of sunglasses that go with your wardrobe. Dress up plain dresses or tees with fun necklaces or dress ’em down with a pair of flats or sneaks.
Summer Must-Haves: Beauty
With all that extra sunshine, it’s super important to make sure you’re taking proper care of your skin. Find a good non-greasy sunscreen and apply daily, and look for foundations and concealers that also have an SPF. Refresh dried out skin with a relaxing mask or cream. The color palette for makeup is all about being light and bright, while staying fairly natural, so look for neutral eyeshadow palettes and play up the fun with a bright poppy lipstick. Finish it off with some waterproof mascara so you’re always pool-ready.
Summer Must-Haves: Just for Funsies
Summer is all about fun, am I right?? Whether you’re partying it up at the pool, lounging with some pals at a barbecue, going out at night, or just chilling at home with your dog, it’s awesome and luxurious to have fun accessories that help set the mood, up the ante, or help you relax. Find a waterproof radio or iPod docking station to ensure the jams never stop, whether you’re at the pool or the beach. Total pool rat? Never leave home without an awesome float so you can chill in style. More of a homebody? Grab a tumbler to keep hydrated and some pretty markers and doodle the day away.
Do you feel summer ready? I know I do! I can’t wait to spread out a blanket in the backyard, bump some tunes and read a book or two. Ahhh, I can imagine it already. A cold lemonade in hand and a puppy by my feet. Now that’s the life! Just a couple more weeks and I’ll be basking in that summertime glow. I can’t wait!
