It’s summer. It’s summer! Summer is here!
Okay, okay, so technically the first day of summer is June 21st, but I’m already feeling pretty prepared considering how hot it’s been in RVA lately. Plus, I just couldn’t get that cheesy intro to the Corona commercial out of my head. 😂 Recently, someone asked me what my summer essentials were for this year, and I thought, “why haven’t I put together a blog post on that yet?” So, here it is! Keep reading on to see what I’m piling into my summer wardrobe and beauty drawers!

I took a poll on Instagram a few days ago to see how many of you loved this trend and how many hated it. I was not even a wee bit surprised that over 90% of ya’ll were all about this vacation-vibes accessory!
I mean, this seems like a no-brainer. They match with literally everything. And if you happen to snag the pair I’m wearing, you certainly won’t regret it because they’re comfy AF.
I’ve proclaimed my love for skorts a few times, yet here we are again. They’re the perfect combo for a long-legged gal like myself. They cover up everything and still look like a mini skirt!
Layered Gold Necklaces
Again, a piece that just goes with everything. I’ve found myself rotating between a handful of gold necklaces lately and I just can’t stop myself. They’re so lovely and dainty!
I can’t think of many things better than a good glow, so shimmery highlighters are one of my favorite parts of summer makeup. I’ve been rocking a lilac-toned strobe highlighter lately, but I’m totally eyeing a gorgeous peachy one now!
A.K.A. my hair’s saving grace. As someone with color-treated red hair, it can be such a challenge to maintain the richness of the tone – especially in the summer sun, sweat, and chlorine. Dry shampoo helps me wash my hair less and still keep it looking 100.
There’s a whole post I wrote up about these bad boys, so check it out right here!
Are there any summer essentials you can’t live without?
