Friday Favs- Summer Staples

Summer is fast approaching- If you live in AL it already feels like summer outside, 95 degrees why?!? We are taking a big, family beach trip this summer. I’m a big time planner- like months in advance. Don’t believe me? Go read Keely’s Birthday Party blog, here. I’m insane.

Anyways- I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer staples with y’all today!

Swimsuits

I know, I know. No one, I repeat No ONE likes swimsuit shopping. But it is necessary! I’m here to tell you its not as bad as you think it is! I ventured into the dressing room a few weeks ago with about 15 different one pieces, because well #mombod. I didn’t leave in tears as I had prepared myself for. Instead I left with two really fabulous suits

  1. Bleu Rod Beattie- Oh So Knotty One Piece
    Y’all it is possible to look and feel sexy in a one piece suit!! I was blown away! This color is fabulous too- a great shade of plumb to make you look tanner! The thickness of the material and the construction had me feeling secure and the look is very flattering! I sized up and got an 8

2.  Anne Cole- Twist Front Bandeau One Piece
You can’t got wrong with a black strapless bathing suit! This one has some rushing around
the tummy which I definitely benefitted from! Plus it’s currently on sale!! I got an 8

 

Pajamas

With the Royal Wedding happening tomorrow, and my general obsession for fabulous pajamas, I decided I needed a great PJ set perfect for viewing all the royal goodness. Target for the win!

Y’allllllllll! Seriously this set is so comfortable- not to mention super cute with its soft floral pattern! It’s made of Tencel which makes them perfect for Summer. Tencel is a fiber made from wood pulp- it absorbs moisture more efficiently than other natural fibers- meaning it helps keep you cool and dry!

Top Bottoms

Platform Sandals

I love that platform sandals are back in style!!! Maybe they never really went out but I’m drooling over these four styles and I can’t decide which to order!!  Which is your fav?? Click the picture to order and let me know which you get!

Sunscreen and after sun spray

A true summer staple-Sunscreen! Don’t leave home without it! I’ve been using both the Mineral Sunscreen and the Lavaderm after Sunspray for Keely and I already this month!! I was really worried about this sunscreen because I’ve used other Natural/Mineral Sunscreens before and they don’t always rub in great. This one from Young Living is really amazing! It blends in well and protects my baby’s sensitive skin! Its SPF 10 but I encourage you to read here as to why you really don’t need a high SPF.

Not only is this good for minor sunburns its also great for minor rash, itch and bug bites! Its a great combo of aloe, lavender and helichrysum essential oils and its incredibly moisturizing! These two items have stayed in my bag since I ordered them in April!!
