Summer’s here! And whether you live right by the beach, pool city or out in the mountains, everybody loves summer! There’s nothing better than icy margaritas, Popsicles and bright colors. So, in order for you to survive this season (oh, poor you!) here are 10 items you MUST HAVE. I suggest you get inspired with this read by drinking an ice-cold Mojito and dreaming about a vacation in the Bahamas (so jealous if you’re already there…)
1. Clarins UV High-Protection Tint SPF 40 – $40
Whether you’re catching some rays at the pool or walking around town, UV protection is a must! And not only during the sunny seasons, but all year. Clarins UV High-Protection Tint SPF 40 is a great option to protect yourself from the damaging rays, and since it has some color in it, you don’t need to wear extra makeup. Yay!
2. Ermanno Scervino Beachwear White Tunic Cover-up – $165 at Yoox.com
Great way to cover yourself from the heat, and because the fabric is thin, it helps you stay fresh. The long sleeves will come in handy just in case you get a little chilly after the pool or later in the day.
3. Caudelíe Divine Oil – $48
UV rays and chlorine are especially bad for hair. You want to protect your tresses from damage, so replenish it and hydrate pores with Caudelíe Divine Oil. It works wonders and your hair, thanks to the vegetable oils, grape-seed polyphenols and shea butter in its formula.
4. A bikini in chartreuse or coral – $239 at Free People
I personally love the Muther Underwire Frill Bikini from Free People. It covers enough and shows enough to flatter most figures, has underwire support and comes in two of the hottest colors of the season. Chartreuse and coral look great with tans! (Just wear SPF!)
A shimmering teal that makes your eyes look like jewels. The long-lasting formula doesn’t crease, cake or flake and is resistant to sweat and humidity. Just what you need!
If you would rather not expose yourself to the damaging UV rays or not have access to sun, this self tanner not only gives you color, it activates your cells and helps tone and firm those annoying problem areas so that you can feel super confident, in a bikini or sans clothing. 😉
7. Giuseppe Zanotti Design Flip-Flops – $675 at Yoox.com
You need a pair of pretty sandals to show off your pretty pedicure, right? So why not chose a pair with all this detailing! So pretty!
8. Hello Kitty Big Pink Bow Fragrance – $58
I told you I love Hello Kitty! Her perfume line is always super girly and fresh. It smells of frangipani, pineapple, gardenia, pink honeysuckle, tiare flower, coconut water, vanilla, and kissed skin accord. Sound perfect for a light, not over powering summer fragrance.
You want to look bronze, but not overly shiny. This is a much lighter formula, but is still long lasting and colors like the original Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, thanks to its intense pigments.
10. Marc Jacobs Square Oversized Sunglasses – $310
Super cool, super retro, 100% UV protection. You need sunglasses, right? No need to say more. To die!
