Summer Staples

What’s up loves!! I cannot wait to share my holy grail summer necessities with you all. I’ll be honest, I am not a big fan of change. I hardly ever switch up my make up, skincare routine, or hair products. Once I find something I am in love with, I stick with it. My summer essentials could easily stay the same for the next 5 years and I would be content!

Summer Staple #1: Small Accessories With a Big Impact

Let’s start off with my essential accessories in the summertime. I am loving the chunky hoop earring trend more than anything this season. I purchased these small gold hoops (30 mm) from Amazon Prime way back and I have been wearing them nearly everyday since. My favorite part of these inexpensive earrings are the clipped backing of the earring. Losing small things is like my job- I am horrible with keeping track of my items, especially an earring back. These earrings were made for me. Along with the thick hoops, I have been obsessed with puka shell necklaces. This bohemian statement necklace brings me back to my childhood days! This piece screams summer and it looks adorable styled with several gold chains or multiple necklaces. Lastly, Quay Australia sunglasses are my absolute favorite brand. I prefer Quay eyewear over any designer brand because of the pricing and unique pieces. I have countless amounts of sunnies designed by them that I have collected over the years and they are timeless. I wear these specific sunglasses from Quay Australia
daily and I always receive compliments. They are my go-to pair and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.  

Summer Staple #2: Beloved Beauty Products

I'd rather go completely natural in the summertime with no make up but when I do decide to glam up, I have a lot of fun using my creative side. My favorite foundation is the Estée Lauder Double Wear but in the hot, sunny, sweaty summer, I prefer a foundation with SPF to protect my skin. The IT cosmetics CC cream is comfortable on my skin and it is overall perfect for summer. My favorite part of my make up routine is the eye shadow portion and the smoky eyes tricks I can mess around with. I wear the same colors schemes year round (I’m boring)!! Mauves, pinks, and oranges are my signature look and between the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette in Bloom palette, my money was well spent. I prefer the Tarte palette in Bloom sometimes because it is a smaller size and it Is easy to travel with. I said it before, and I’ll say it again... I cannot stand doing my hair. I don’t know why, but I dread doing anything hair related! On that note, dry shampoo is my best friend. The Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe dry shampoo has a fresh scent and leaves your hair with volume and cleaner. I have travel size bottles that I bring everywhere with me! 

Summer Staple #3: Twist of Trends

I love adding a twist of my own detail on my outfits to spice things up! Whether it be a bold accessory, hair clips, or a mix of prints, I love it all. I have a whole blog post on my hair accessory essentials coming soon and I am beyond excited! My ultimate summer staples that create a trendy image would be a wide brim hat and a hair scarf. I purchased this simple hat years ago, yet it feels brand new. The original band on the fedora is black but I added my favorite hair scarf to make it more summery. I wear this patterned hair scarf in my hair, on my purses, wrapped around hats, as a top, and so much more. Amazon has dozens of colors and prints, It was just under $8, and has so many purposes. It wouldn’t be summer without a worn out pair of slide sandals! I love slide sandals in all colors a lot more than thong flip flops. They dress up a casual outfit and adds a feminine flare. I wear these Shein sandals everyday and they are so comfortable! Last, but not least, small purses are the best thing to own this season. LADIES, everyone and their mother are obsessing over the wicker bag trend. I am head over heels for the straw bags, especially this reasonably priced cross body from Amazon Prime! 

I hope you are all having an amazing summer so far- it is going by WAY too fast though!! Look forward to read some of my favorite upcoming posts as we transition into the fall season soon. Thank you SO much for reading, you have no idea how much it means to me!
