Summer Essentials

The weather is getting warmer and summer is fast approaching. There are a few things that I find are absolutely necessary for summer. This is very similar to my spring break essentials blog post, but these are a bit more summer oriented.


As the weather has been warming up, I've been finding rompers to be my favorite thing. They're super summery and are super cute. The romper that I have is from Dry Goods. If you would like to see it actually on me, you can see my previous blog post.


You basically cannot survive summer without a bathing suit. I've had this bathing suit for quite a long time and still love it. This seahorse printed bathing suit is from Gap. I also have the matching bathing suit bottom, which is not pictured. I love the colors and the whimsy pattern. 
Along with a bathing suit, sunscreen is absolutely necessary. I find that I prefer lotion sunscreens over spray sunscreens, since spray sunscreens have a sticky feeling to them. I've been using Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen for years and have always liked it. This has SPF 55 and I can use it on my face and body.


As the humidity rises, sweat is inevitable. I find that waterproof makeup is so important to have when the weather warms up. In the heat, my makeup tends to slide right off and waterproof makeup assures that your makeup will stay on all day. I usually don't wear makeup, but I know that for some people, waterproof eyeliner and mascara is essential, which is why I threw this in.


And lastly, sandals. Everyone needs a pair of sandals for summer, I like to have some dressy sandals and some comfy sandals. These are my comfy sandals, they're great for walking around all day, so they're basically perfect for summer traveling.
