Currently Craving: May Must Haves for Early Summer


Hello June, hello SUMMER! It's unofficially officially summer, I don't care what anyone says about it. ;) I think we all can agree we're ready for warmth and endless sunny days and some fun things to shop to get ready for summer with! Here's everything I've loved from May and what you need to add to cart today!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11

1. Blue Topaz Statement Ring: cocktail rings that bring a pop of color to an outfit are everythingggg in the summer! They can be pricey so I was so excited to find this one for $50 - it's the perfect color that matches pretty much anything!

2. 'Vitamin Sea' Floppy Hat: so many of these cute floppy sun hats with sayings on them are SO expensive (I'm talking $400+, like this one - it is pretty cute though!) so when I saw this one on sale for $24.50 I got it right away! It's an extra 20% off right now too with code SWIMMING. It can be hard to travel with big hats like this but don't let that steer you away from taking them on your summer travels! Put them at the bottom of your suitcase and fill them with clothes so they keep their shape, or get a hat carrier like this one - it's an extra piece of luggage, but you can fit a ton of things in it!

3. Sea Salt & Linen Candle: Bath and Body Works will always be my go-to for candles! I've found some really great ones at Target and of course Home Goods, but nothing beats a BBW 3-wick. ;) This is the best, fresh scented candle to burn all summer long - inside and out! You'll love it!

4. USB Table Fan: this has proven to be the best $13 I've ever spent. It's a USB powered fan, but you can easily plug it into an outlet box and use it that way too. It's a must have and total life saver for the hot weather!

5. Striped Tie-Front Tee: do yourself a favor and buy this in EVERY color, ASAP! It's the best tee for summer that you can dress up or wear casually and the tie-front detail makes it a little more fun than your average basic tee. Fits TTS!

6. Pink Bow Sandals: these are $22 (and BOGO 50% off, get two new cute pairs of summer shoes while the sale lasts!) and the perfect Birkenstock dupe in the sense that they're just as comfortable! I love the bow detail and this shade of pink but they come in black too if you need something a little more basic.

7. Patterned Travel Wallet: a travel LIFE saver! It's a struggle to keep everything organized but this makes it so simple. It has room for plane tickets, credit cards and I.D., money and so much more. It's a Type-A girl's dream, basically. Hah!

8. Urban Decay Liquid Highlight: this is on sale for $14 right now and I highly recommend getting it while the sale lasts! It's such a pretty highlight and especially so in the summer I prefer liquid to powder because of post-sun skin and it (for me, anyway!) gives a super natural, glowy look. It comes in a couple of colors but the "Sin" shade is the most natural if you're looking for something for sun-kissed skin.

9. Floating Rainbow Cooler: there's no limit for how many pool floats you should have and no reason you shouldn't add one more to your collection, especially since this is the perfect floating cooler EVER! It's perfect for parties and holds a ton of beverages.

10. 'Globe Trotter' Pullover: the softest, coziest pullover to travel in this summer! Planes are cold 95% of the time and whether you're on a quick domesitic flight or a red-eye, this will be your new favorite!

11. Pom Pom Beach Tote: such a cute tote for a beach day this summer!
