Happy Memorial Day everyone! This holiday always seems to act as an official reminder about the impending summer days. It's the perfect time of year to shop for your summer essentials so you'll be ready and fashionable for every BBQ, beach day, baseball game, or weekend getaway.
Make sure you have these essentials on your summer list.
A Bathing Suit
What's summer without swimming, whether it's in a pool, lake, or the ocean? One-pieces are making a comeback and we love this style from Victoria's Secret:
A Bathing Suit Cover-Up
Don't forget a simple cover-up to throw on over your bathing suit. We love the Sundriven Lena 6-way hooded wrap. There are so many different ways to wear it and the fabric is cool and comfortable. Best of all, with UPF 50+ in the fabric, you can protect your skin.
A Carryall Bag
In summer, you want a bag that can store just about everything you need and that won't easily get dirty. We love a colorful and sturdy canvas bag, like this one from TOMS.
Of course you can't forget about sunscreen! It's a must year-round and especially in the summer. We love this tinted daily shield with SPF 40 from Clarins. It feels more like a moisturizer than greasy sunscreen.
And for the rest of your body? We love this lotion spray, also by Clarins.
Protect your eyes with some fun sunglasses. For summer, we like to go a little wild and colorful with our sunglasses. These from Madewell are in our bag.
A hat not only protects your scalp and face from sunburns, but it also looks stylish. We love this retro looking hat from Urban Outfitters.
A Wear Everywhere Dress
Lastly, our summer must-haves list includes a dress that you can wear everywhere and anywhere. Our pick is the Sundriven Ava dress, which features UPF 50+. It's comfortable, cool, and protects your skin.
A few other things to add to your list? A chapstick with SPF, a beautiful coral-colored lipstick, and a durable pair of sandals. What are your must-haves for summer? What else would you include on this list?
