Girl Chat: Summer Staples

I m linking up with Emily for a little Girl Chat today talking all about Summer Staples! I love chatting about this today because one – as I ve mentioned I ve got some serious summer vibes going, and two – it s my Friday and I have a three day weekend at the beach planned, so summer essentials are definitely on the mind!

1st up is this Origins A Perfect World Moisturizer. I ve been using this every morning. It s perfect because it has SPF 40 so I wear it both under my makeup and as sunscreen for a beach/pool day. It s a little thick but is really great for refreshed, glowing-like skin.

Like any Florida girl, sandals, tank tops and shorts are most definitely summer staples. Old Navy is one of my favorite places to shop for this kind of stuff. They seem to have an unlimited of shorts and comfy shirts in about a million colors and always good sales.

And of course sunglasses are a staple, these are on my wish list this year:

Ray Ban Erika Sunglasses

Another summer must have is books! I dream of laying in the sun, reading books all day. On my immediate Summer reading list: Wild, A Bridge Across the Ocean, and Into the Water.

Last but not least – a tasty, fun drink should be in hand on a Summer day. I plan on trying both of these ASAP:

Hawaiian Mimosas
Summer Vodka & Mint Lemonade

What are your must-haves for a perfect summer day?
