Summer may be almost half over, cue the tears 😭, but I thought it might be fun to share my top ten must have items for this summer. I am really hoping to soak up every ounce of sunshine and lake water this weekend! We are heading away for our first weekend of the summer and a lot of these items are coming with me! Click on each item below for more details.
Before we know it we will be shopping for Fall but for now here are some of my summer favs:
These biker shorts are a dream and you better RUN to get them! Lulu is currently sold out online, but they are still available in store. They will become your new best friend for the rest of summer and are the most comfortable short I HAVE EVER OWNED. I have the 6” pair in black and navy. You can also get them a bit longer or a bit shorter if you prefer. The pockets on these shorts are essential. You didn’t know what you were missing until you have them.
When it comes to non-alcoholic beverages, I am a sucker for sparkling water and these zero cal drinks are perfect on a hot day. They come in other flavours as well but this one takes the cake for me. They also look bomb in my skinny can koozie’s.
Another one of those items that you never thought you needed until you had it. I purchased two skinny koozies this year, light blue and blush, and I absolutely love them! They keep your skinny drinks cool and look super cute! I also always freeze my hands on cold drinks so these have been a lifesaver.
You can never have too many bathing suits right?! I purchased three new Cupshe bathing suits including this one and I am obsessed with all of them. They are only $25 USD so it really is worthwhile even when you include the exchange rate. I am a size medium in tops and bottoms and these all fit me true to size. They are all super adorable and look exactly like they do in the photos. I even purchased a pair that were high wasted and I am now obsessed with high wasted bottoms.
I get compliments on my Steve Madden sandals all the time! They were purchased from the outlet a few years ago but I found a very similar pair on their website and they are on sale for only $60!! They also come in two other really cute colours. They are the best slip on shoe when you are heading out the door and dress up any outfit while also remaining comfortable.
For special events I like to use the Bondi Sands Ultra Dark Foam self-tanner and the Bondi Sands application mitt. I am relatively pale and have a hard time keeping up a tan in the summer but like to still look like I got sun for special events. This foam has fantastic coverage and is easy to apply. Don’t forget this amazing application mitt! You won’t see any streaks and the colour is straight bronze with zero orange.
All of the swimming in the summer makes my hair so dry and brittle! This hair mask truly works miracles on your hair. It restores hydration and will have it feeling silky smooth after one use. I keep it in my shower and use it once a week. It also lasts for several applications and is a great valued product.
Alright so I haven’t actually read this one yet, but it is on my reading list for this summer and I am so excited to dive in!! Not only did she have me at the pretty cover, but anytime Reese Witherspoon recommends a book I feel like I should give it a try. There are countless positive reviews online about this one and I have a feeling it is going to be right up my ally.
These chips are an essential item for by the lake this summer! I have always been a sucker for chips but these somewhat healthier alternative to my regular bags of All Dressed are something I am here for. They have a great flavour and are gluten free. If salty and crunchy is what you are looking for than these chips are for you!
Give me ALL of the VICI dresses!! I am obsessed with this store and wish it was located in Canada. Although there are duty fees and an increased cost with the exchange rate, I splurge often and purchase their cute dresses. It is worth it every time and they always have me feeling super cute and girly!
That’s it for my top ten summer must haves! Comment your favourite item or something that is on your top ten list. Happy Thursday and enjoy your weekend!
