The temperature is heating up and I’ve been switching up my wardrobe from blacks to grays with pops of pastels! I’m loving light pink and minty greens for summer. The fresh colors remind me of watermelons or strawberry shortcake ice cream. Here are my 6 Summer Essentials for Beach Babes:
1. A Cute Hat:
This is a must when you’re walking down the boardwalk or at your outdoor shopping center. The one pictured above is perfect for casual days and I bust out my floppy straw hat with boho looks or on beach days.
2. Extra House Key:
When I go to the beach, I don’t like to bring a bunch of personal belongings. This retro keychain is perfect because I don’t have to worry about it getting wet. I bought mine on Etsy.
3. Compact Notebook:
I like to keep a little notebook on hand to jot down to-do lists or ideas. If the notebook is cute and makes me laugh I’ll use it even more!
4. Round Sunglasses:
These sunnies are so simple and they add color to whatever outfit you’re wearing. I love the super round style–might have to pick up a baby blue pair too!
I really don’t like having to bother with sunscreen. However, it’s better to protect my skin rather than deal with health issues down the line. I love the Supergoop! City Serum because it’s lightweight, so I can wear it under makeup with zero worries. This is the first time I haven’t had breakouts in the summer!
6. A Favorite Watch:
I feel like I’ve been using my phone to tell time for years now. I much prefer just glancing at my wrist! Plus, I realized it can look like I’m not paying much attention to what someone is saying when I’m glancing at my phone to check the time. If it’s a watch, there’s no room for misinterpretation.
