Happy Friday, fiends! HOLY COW, it is June (and we are still in school)! What a ridiculous fast month May was… but I’m telling you right now, I feel that our “summer break” is going to be over before it even begins. So many trips planned, but we cannot wait!
So today’s Friday Faves are in honor of our upcoming summer break and the things I will need (or you may need) to get through it!
Espadrilles! Every gal needs a cute espadrille for summer and these were just sent to my inbox today. These Knotted Espadrille Slides are courtesy of JCrew. They also come in white or a pink/orange floral pattern. Knowing myself and my wardrobe, I could get away with wearing these every day and they would go with everything.
Everyone needs a great straw bag to take to the beach full of all the books you probably won’t read! I found this one on Amazon and loved the shape, size and pattern. Not only is this a bag to take to the beach, but it also could be a great bag to throw on with a cute dress and out you go for date night. AND it’s only $22.99 with free prime shipping!
I’ve always been a sunscreen-wearer since my glory days at the Sedan City Pool. I can still hear Mrs. Doty saying, “YOU DON’T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN!” She wasn’t even my mother (she is my other mother) … and I can’t figure out why she was at the City Pool… but that’s besides the point!
As I’ve gotten older, the importance of it has seemed to really scream at me since we are outside a lot in the summer! Last summer, there seemed to be a bunch of hullabaloo about certain sunscreens purchased at the grocery store being just as bad for your skin as not wearing it. So I decided to spend a little bit more to be cautious!
I told you all about Supergoop awhile back – I use their sunless tanner and am a big fan of it! So I decided to go ahead and get the Unseen Sunscreen and the Sunscreen Mist that has Vitamin C infused in it. The mist is the easiest for us to use because I can spray it on everyone and myself quickly and get out the door. The Unseen Sunscreen rubs in clearly and can also be used as face primer so this will be perfect on those hot summer days when I do not feel like caking makeup on!
If you haven’t been to Target lately, stop reading my blog and go. Because 1) duh. It’s Target. And 2) these cute beach towels!
Target just launched this adorable line of Disney products that have a very vintagey feel to them. I saw this beach towel and a few other towels that aren’t directly Disney-related (which I prefer), but are SO stinking’ cute! I think that my $3 Dollar Spot towels I bought the kids a few years ago have been great, but maybe it’s time to upgrade!
Speaking of Target... while my mom and dad were here, my mom and I snuck out to Target sans kids (which as you know, is a completely different experience than if we had taken them with us – we actually took our time, walked around, tried things on, etc.). I usually don’t stop at the sunglasses section because I’m a firm believer in JCrew Factory sunglasses. But these caught my eye..
So I tried them on.
And I was sold!
I love the clear frame and they are super lightweight! And if I lose them or it on them or someone steals them from my van (because sadly, two other pairs of sunglasses, and all of our technology was stolen from our van last weekend – insert many curse words), I can either replace or go to JCrew Factory!
So there you have it – some great (and inexpensive) options to get you started for summer break! I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
