Spring is here, but summer is right around the corner and I cannot wait for those warm temps. All of the fun and cute stuff is just starting to roll into stores and if you wait until it is warmer, the cute stuff is gone by then! I've put together three collections of summer essentials so you can be ready when summer is here.
Ahhh, summer in the backyard. Sprinklers, blow up pools, grass stuck to little feet, fun towels as blankets, flip flops, and popsicles. Here are my top 10 backyard summer essentials:
1. Patio Lounger // 2. Wayfarer Sunglasses // 3. Family Pool // 4. Ikat Space Dye Beach Towel // 5. Lorelai Flip Flop // 6. Boys Swim Trunk // 7. Girls Striped One Piece // 8. Single Point Hammock // 9. Ice Pop Makers // 10. Rolling Cooler
Beach towels are so fun and big, I'm loving the stylish ones that are out this year. Stock up and use them as blankets or regular towels! Here are my 12 picks:
1. Octopus Beach Towel // 2. Blog Beach Towel // 3. Printed Ombre Beach Towel // 4. Suntastic Beach Towel // 5. Printed Ombre Beach Towel // 6. Sea Urchin Beach Towel // 7. Stay Until the Sun Sets Beach Towel // 8. Stripe Space Dye Lux Beach Towel // 9. Color Block Beach Towel // 10. One Direction Beach Towel // 11. Ikat Space Dye Lux Beach Towel // 12. Popsicle Beach Towel
Yes, I have a One Direction beach towel in there. No, I am not embarrassed. 😉
While everyone is busy playing in the pool, create an oasis in your own little corner of the backyard and relax. Or take the baby monitor out. Or let your husband or babysitter hang with the kids and get away to a local beach. Whatever you do or wherever you are, here are my top 7 beach day essentials for YOU:
1. Color Blocked Beach Towel // 2. Round Sunglasses // 3. Patio Lounger // 4. Glass Water Bottle // 5. Blue Tote Bag // 6. Emily Braided Gladiator Sandal // 7. Waterproof iPhone Case with Lanyard
I am kinda sorta smitten with that color blocked towel up there, and kinda sorta thinking we need new big beach towels in our bathroom. 😉
What's the weather like over there? Are you getting ready for summer?
