5 Things I Love Right Now
The unofficial start of Summer has kicked-off! Pool days, cookouts, and bare feet are calling my name…yours, too? And with the sunny season officially approaching at the end of this month, I am sharing my current Summer-worthy obsessions on my June must have list. From the ballpark to the beach, these goodies need to be part of your Summer activities.
5 Things I Love Right Now...
1. Live Love Gameday
This brand is sporty, stylish, and affordable. When I came across the Summer Nights & Ballpark Lights tee, it was too perfect to pass up. Now, I am hooked! The material is super soft, light-weight, and totally perfect for casual Summer days. The Summer Lovin’ collection is filled with beach vibes galore. For my fellow graphic tee lovin’ ladies, this brand is a must have.
2. Dooney & Bourke
Head to the ballpark in style! The MLB Collection includes everything from wallets to totes for fangirl accessorizing this Summer. Pick something from your favorite team – mine include the Yankees Large Slim Wristlet and Yankees Triple Zip Crossbody. These bags are high-quality in material and craftsmanship, meaning they can endure any unpleasant encounters with beer and peanuts – just saying. And if baseball is not your thing, check out the Collegiate or NFL Collections. I gifted by best friend the Ravens Large Slim Wristlet for her birthday. Root for the home team with this must have designer accessory.
3. Old Navy Linen
As much as I love burlap, linen is a close runner up as my textile favorite – especially in Summer! It can be dressed up or down, is breathable and comfortable, and comes in so many styles. Old Navy prices cannot be beat, so linen lovers unite! Check out the beach-ready shorts and crops for women or date night shirts for men in long and short sleeve. There are dozens more options, just do a search on their site. Your Summer wardrobe must have some linen.
4. Glass and Silicone Water Bottles
I love the 22-ounce Apana Yoga Lifestyle brand bottles I scored at HomeGoods for half the retail price. The closest equivalent available online is the Apana Dot Bottle at Nordstrom Rack. But there are plenty of other brand options. Lifefactory makes a similar product with a wide-range of styles. The glass is recyclable and made from natural ingredients. All bottle parts are BPA/BPS and phthalates free, making it safe for everyday food and beverage contact without retaining taste or odor. The silicone sleeve ensures a secure grip and protects against breakage. My favorite part – it is dishwasher safe! For sweaty gym sessions and hot Summer days, these durable, reusable (plus, eco-friendly!) bottles are a must have.
5. ChapStick® Total Hydration
Confession – I am a lip balm addict. I have a stick on every floor of the house. One in my purse, gym bag, work bag, office drawer…need I go on? And I totally panic if I manage to go anywhere without one. I have long stuck to the classic, original ChapStick®, finding other ingredients and brands dry my lips out – obviously counterproductive. But move over boring original, the advanced lip care Honey Blossom is my new go-to. It is 100% natural, made with Argan oil and avocado butters, making it as smooth as it is sweet. The thicker stick makes for better coverage and fuller application. This beauty must have will keep your lips hydrated all Summer long.
I promise you will love these things, too…happy shopping!
