Creative title, I know. 😉
Today marks the first day of SUMMER VACATION for me! Woohoo!
To celebrate, I thought I’d share a few summer-y things I’m loving these days!
I got two of these (blue stripes & yellow palm leaves), and they are SO great! The material is kind-of odd – 85% polyester – BUT, I love that it makes the dresses mostly wrinkle-free and a good bit stretchy. Plus, they really don’t look cheap. I’ve also washed and hung to dry mine, and they held up great and dried SUPER fast. The length is just right, the straps are adjustable, and – my favorite part – the buttons are fake (just sewn on), so there is NO pull in the chest area!!! They can be dressed up OR down and I have gotten SO many compliments on these dresses. Oh, and they are only $21.99. Seriously, this is a unicorn. Go order one – or six!
This time of year is my FAVORITE for reading (duh), and I love all the guides that come out for “summer reading.” Especially, Modern Mrs. Darcy’s. I anxiously await its release every May and then add a bunch of books to my TBR list. This year, I love the format of the guide, and I found a couple of cute love stories, one family saga, and one riveting suspense title that I’m excited to dive into!
P.S. I just finished The Mother-in- Law and thought it was excellent! (Full review coming soon!)
Have you seen all the hype this brand from Walmart is getting in the blog/Instagram world lately? I have to admit, I was suckered in, and I’ve not been disappointed!
I’ve purchased all of the above items recently have been pleasantly surprised by how much I like them! The quality (especially for the price) is great, and the styles really are on point!
It’s no secret that I LOVE iced coffee – especially from Starbucks – and this (although still not super cheap) is a great alternative to spending $3.11 every afternoon for a Venti Iced Coffee from the drive-thru. 🙂 And this blonde roast? DELICIOUS. I top it off with a little half and half for a luxurious treat around 3PM most days.
Another unicorn. This really is flattering/slimming, has great coverage (up top and from behind), AND it doesn’t look like an “old lady” suit. Plus, you can’t beat the $31.99 price! It comes in LOTS of different colors and patterns, and there is also a keyhole style that is SO cute and would look great on the right person (but didn’t work for me). You’re welcome. 😉
Ok, my sister gave this to me, and I was SUUUUPER skeptical. I mean… LEG MAKEUP?!? But… It is so, so good. Basically, it’s a heavy spray that you rub into your legs (or wherever I guess). I have this light color, and it goes on very light and just evens out your skin and gives it a very subtle bit of color. Honestly, I don’t know how I ever wore shorts/dresses in the early summer without this. I LOVE it. (They also make a cream that I’m interested in, but I haven’t tried it yet.)
My summer uniform = solid v-neck tee shirt + pull on shorts and Universal Thread has me 100% covered! I just stocked up on a couple of these (only $5 each right now) and a pair of these (only $12). They are PERFECT for running around with the kids etc.
Well, there you go! What are some of your favorites for summer?!? Please share in the comments!
