Summer Must Haves.


And just like that, summer is here! The season of little dresses, coral lips, fun sunglasses… I could go on. Today I am rounding up several (twenty two, to be exact) of my favorite things for summer. On the sunglasses front, I’ve always been a big Ray-Ban girl and while I love my pink mirrored aviators + classic Wayfarers so much, I’m feeling the need to update my collection as Ray-Ban just launched two new pink lense exclusives at Nordstrom… the Highstreet + classic Folding Wayfarer.

Other notable must-haves? A great bag, preferably in pink… (this is a bargain, and this is one of my personal favorite splurges)… a coral lip (go for a long-wearing gloss or a creamy stick)… a simple gold choker, and a pretty floral dress. And this $70 dress, which looks like it’s a top + a skirt. Also worth noting on the beauty front.. this time of year, I more or less give up manicures in favor of two coats of this. It’s so pretty and makes for one less thing you have to do.

Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.

    That bucket bag is a fabulous find!
    Question about the Dior Nail Enhancer, has it worked well for you? I have looked at it a few times but I am just not sure… Does it make a big difference in contrast to just leaving your nails bare?

      Hi! I really like it… it’s like clear polish with the most subtle pink highlights. It’s a small difference but I like those small, natural-looking touches. 🙂
