August is one of the slowest summer burns out there. It’s not quite fall, but with school and the busy season clamoring to begin, it’s hard to enjoy the fact that 1) it’s still 92 degrees outside and 2) the beach is calling our name. I did a little online shopping for you, dear readers, showcasing my summertime, sunset pics. Much of it’s on sale and ALL of these items will keep you glowing wellll past Labor Day.
Old Navy is an interesting place. It will go on a several-season streak of straight up BLAH/UMMMM/…NO status and then will turn around for a season of coolness. Now is that time. I love to stock up on tees and tanks in the summer because I continually reach for them when putting an outfit together. This tank is cute with a sporty neck and has that great, bouncy cotton that doesn’t cling to your body.
So my inner 15 year old went on a shopping spree at the beginning of the summer at none other than American Eagle. YES, ladies, I’m talking polo shirt, tiny flying eagle, American Eagle. Let me let you in on a little secret, AERIE has great stuff. Lovely bras, great undies, and some aaaamazing flirty shorts. The day I went in, it was buy 1, get 1 for $5. That’s where I found the pineapple shorts, which just makes me happy.
I’m a little biased towards the handbag company I work for, and see a lot of samples pass in and out of my office. I will say that this little guy is the one I’ve wanted to confiscate the most. Light, soft leather in bright, poppy colors – he holds everything I need for a summer day of errands that blends into a night on a rooftop.
My mom bought this little guy for my birthday and it’s the perfect amount of boho when wearing a flowy tee shirt and cut offs, or brightens up a chic, black maxi dress. Buy now, while it’s on sale!
If you’ve read any of my other posts, you know I’m a Ray-Ban girl all day, errrrday, but this summer I’ve been sneaking these out-and-about when my husband is not looking. Round and light, perfect for a chic-hipster take on summer shadiness.
These shoes, ladies, THESE SHOES. I own three pair of Seychelles shoes. They are the most comfortable wedges on the market, and typically ring in at around $100, which considering how many times I’ve worn even one pair is more than worth it to me. BUT then one night I’m late-night scanning Piperlime for a client, and came across these babies!
Emma Stone makes this (and everything look so good), but buy this, and rest easy knowing that you, too, can have the perfect pout. Glides on and stays on for a sheer, lovely, layerable style. I went orange. It was a nice and more cost efficient option to my favorite YSL lip slicks. Which are also amazing; if you have an extra $30 lying around, then pick one of these bad boys up! I treat myself to one a season.
Shop-up, and soak in the sun. HAPPY MONTH OF SUMMER, PEOPLE!
