Currently Craving: June Gems for Summer


Summer is in full swing and it's time to add some bright pieces to your closet situation! June was filled with fun buys to kick the summer off to a great start - beauty buys for glowing summer skin, accessories, bold colors and more - I have my favorites rounded up at all different prices! You need to add these to your cart ASAP:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15

1. Perfect Match Gel Polish: this is the shade I have on my nails right now and I'm pretty sure it's my favorite gel color ever! This brand always lasts the longest for me too so I lean toward using it every time I go to my salon. Highly recommend this shade if you're due for a new color!

2. 'Beach Please' Baseball Hat: whether you're out running errands, haven't had time to do your hair or are in the sun, baseball hats are musts and these cute hats with says have been taking over this summer! I love this "beach please" cap and the price - only $15!

3. 'Always Happy Hour' Door Mat: I have an obsession with cute door mats like this! Perfect for summer and to stick outside when you have friends coming over.

4. Black Bow Slide Sandals: I chatted about these last week on Instagram and they were a huge hit! They're on sale right now for $18, so yes, you can totally buy two! ;) They're a perfect dupe for these Sam Edelman sandals and they come in quite a few colors.

5. Sunnies: you can never have too many sunnies come summer time, and at $12 they're the perfect pair to keep in the car or your bag for all of those times that you forget to grab ones from home! I love the shape of these and I'm not normally the type to go for circular frames, so if you feel the same way don't hesitate to buy these because they're great either way!

6. Tie-Dye Dip Tank: when I saw this in the store last week I fell in LOVE! Something about it is so fun and it's my favorite tank for the summer now. Fair warning - you definitely want to hand wash this and/or wash it alone (and in cold water!) the first few times so that the dye doesn't run. Some of the reviews warned that it ran, but I washed it the first time by hand and the second time alone in the washer in cold water and it was fine, #shoppersprotip?

7. St Tropez Face Tanning Mask: holy grail beauty product, hands down. I talked about this on Instagram a few weeks ago too and I've now used two of these sheet masks and I love it so much! It gives your face such a beautiful glow; I've been hanging out in the sun now that it's so warm out and I still use it because of how moisturizing it is. You can only use it once which is the only downside, but when you realize how well it works it's still worth it! I can totally deal with one less Starbs a week... ;)

8. Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Moisturizer: this is my holy grail product all summer long! If you haven't used this, you need to grab it - I put it on after my showers after being in the sun. It moisturizes your skin and has aloe in it so it's great for sunburn too! It's cooling to the touch and I kid you not, it has THE best scent in the world. I don't even know how to explain it, but it's heavenly!

9. Travel Cosmetic Case: I grabbed this for a few upcoming trips and it's sooo roomy! There's spots for your makeup brushes which is great so that they don't get ruined in your travels too. It's the perfect size and even fits smaller bags - I'm a bit of a bag hoarder in case you couldn't tell. ;)

10. Embroidered Wedges: these are pricey, but SO worth it. Embroidery is everywhere you look this season and they're one of those staple pieces you'll wear every once in a while and get tons of compliments each and every time! Definitely a splurge piece, but definitely a "need it" too!

11. Gemstone Earrings ℅: statement earrings can completely change the look of an outfit and these beauties do just that! I was so excited when I saw these come in the mail from BaubleBar - the different colored gemstones are stunning and the blues and turquoise shades are great for summer. I love the way they look with a pretty summer white!

12. Woven Tory Burch Tote: SALE ALERT! This is over $200 off retail and it's the cutest summer tote! I lean toward smaller bags on a daily basis (especially in the summer) but traveling is always easier with totes and I love how summery this Tory tote is! It fits so much and it's extremely large inside, so if you're like me and like to grab a cute new splurge piece each season, this is a perfect option!

13. Teal Running Sneakers: the only way I can really convince myself to work out is to bribe myself with cute workout gear! ;) Isn't the color of these sneakers so stunning? They're ridiculously comfortable too and great to run in! I wear them for more than just a workout and you will too because of how cute they are; making it totally justifiable to buy them. #badinfluence

14. Striped Bow Hat: there's no such thing as too many fun summer hats! This one is $22 - perfect to take on a beach trip and the shape is very flattering on all sized heads. That's often a problem I find when hat shopping.

15. Pineapple Glass Markers: I grabbed these a month ago and they've been such a hit at all of my summer events so far! They're a simpler take on glass charms in my opinion and they're so easy to re-use. My friends have loved them!

What are you loving this summer so far?

    1. They're actually not too bad! I have fairly sensitive ears so they're a little heavy on me, but not bad - my sister doesn't have sensitive ears at all and she says they don't feel heavy one bit! :) They're SOO cute in person - the pictures online don't do them justice!!
