Summer Essentials!

I would have to say that the only makeup I wear on a daily basis is concealer, powder, and masacara. However, I do have reccomendations if you  want to have a fuller face of makeup!

Naked Basics Palette - Every girl needs this! It is a little bit pricey for eyeshadow, but it does last forever and it was a great purchase!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - This concealer is wonderful! It has amazing coverage and it doesn't cost much for what you're getting. I have re-purchased this product twice and I don't think I'll ever go back to another concealer.

The best way to dress for the summer is breezy and light. Some of my favorite clothing items for the summer are pretty basic, but I still love them!

White Shorts - These shorts are always my go-to-color. I love how you can match white with anything, it makes an outfit so much brighter! These may be from target, but they are my favorite inexpensive shorts I own!

Running Shorts - When I'm not in white shorts aor sundresses, I aalways reach for my nike running shorts (norts). They are super easy to pair with t-shirts and are great for any day in the summer!

Dresses/Rompers - I like dresses and rompers even more than shorts in the summer because they are super breezy and comfy, and you don't have to go through the struggle of matching tops and bottoms.

Casual T-Shirts - Tees are great for pairing with any shorts, I especially love wearing them with norts. You can find t-shirts anywhere you go, and they usually aren't very expensive.

Cheap Sunglasses - From my point of view, I would rather have cheap sunglasses that are okay if I loose than risk loosing an expensive pair. Just my opinion, but I would rather not loose a $150 pair of sunglasses.
A Beach Backpack - I like carrying a backpack better than a beach bag. Backpacks make it better on the beach because you can zip it up and keep your stuff enclosed, and if you walk to the beach, it's a lot easier to have it all on your back instead of on one shoulder.

A Bright Towel - Nothing feels better than laying down a nice bright towel and taking a nap. I suggest going to target to fine your towels, because they're cheap and look nice on the beach.

A Cozy Sweatshirt - In my beach bag, I always throw in a t-shirt or sweatshirt in case the beach gets chilly. I usually grab my spirit jersey, because it's a good mix between a t-shirt and a sweatshirt. If it's a cooler day, I go for a crewneck or quarter-zip sweatshirt to keep me warm.

A Colorful Wristlet or Crossbody - I love taking a crossbody or wristlet with me for a day on the town with my friends or family. They're really easy to just throw your phone, some money, maybe some chapstick or whatever you might need and take it with you. For me, I prefer a bright colored wristlet to add some color to my outfit, like this Vera Bradley one!

Sea you later!
