Likes & Favorites: Summer Staples

I’m a sunset lover, sangria drinker, country-song singer & self-proclaimed s’mores enthusiast. Long weekends down the shore give me life again and there really isn’t anything better than the sound of the ocean on a perfect sunny day. Basically, summer is 100% the best time of the year & I’m liking/favoriting every bit of it–especially these summer staples.

All Covered Up


We spend all our effort finding the perfect suit, but usually forget about the cover-up. Sure, once we hit the sand it comes right off, but a cute cover-up is perfect for lounging by the pool or happy hour after a long day at the beach. I’ve spent years trying to find the perfect cover-up & finally found one (on sale!) last weekend. Easy & breezy.

Beach Beauty Basics


While summer is all about going au natural, there are a few products that I love for easy summer looks. Give them a try!

Summer Jams

What’s summer without rocking out in your car, windows rolled down, singing at the top of your lungs? I got some great playlists for you here, but Spotify’s “Summer Songs” is also great for that long drive to the shore.

Sippin’ on the beach…


If you want something cool & refreshing while you lay out, try this simple twist on fruit infused water. I stole this idea from my friend Maddie & it’s brilliant: next time you make ice cubes, throw fresh raspberries in the tray. Freeze. Then when you put them in your water, you’ll get a nice fruity flavor. Want to take it up a notch? Squeeze in some fresh lemon. Perfect way to stay hydrated.

…& playin’ in the sand.

But if you’re looking for something a little more fun… Mango Raspberry Mimosas are just for you. Thanks Krista for creating this fabulous recipe card!
