Sand, Sun, & Sangria

This month I decided to forgo my usual swap and join in with Pink on the Cheek & Life is Sweet for their Favorite Things: Summer Staples swap! In honor of this, I'm going to share with you 10 of my summer must-haves, not all of which can be shipped in a box! :)

Cute aviators- I've been lusting over these aviators with aztec printed arms for awhile now. These specifically are from Icing, but I've seen similar ones at DebCharming Charlie, & a few other stores.

Popsicle molds- I love scouring Pinterest for new popsicle recipes, although my molds aren't nearly as cute as these!

Lake Erie- I am so lucky to live right on one of the great lakes, and you can bet that my butt is on the beach as much as possible in the summertime!

Bright & fun nail polishes- Summer is the pefect time to show off your neon pedi!

A cute swimsuit- Mismatched top & bottom, please! This year I went with a plain black bandeau and those adorable aztec bottoms from Charlotte Russe.

My hammock- Last year for my birthday my boyfriend bought me this hammock from ENO and I'm in love! He has a blue one and I'm honestly not sure how we did summer before we got them.

A koozie or 12:

Several bottles of bug spray- I'm allergic to mosquitoes so I ALWAYS have this within reach, along with some of my mom's homemade salve for itch relief!

Lots and lots of comfy shorts.

Old Navy flip flops- These are all I wear on my feet from May through September, and I have the tan lines to prove it!

What are your summer staples? :)

Last but not least, I am linking up for I Love Bloglovin! (Even though I don't, to be honest) So follow me & then check out some of the other great blogs that are also linked up :)



  1. oooh. I'm really not a fan of koozies but that one is cute enough to make me start using them :D
