Style: Summer Things

My style (for myself, and my home) tends to change with the season. For me, summer is all about freshening things up with bold accessories, lots of layers, new scents and wholesome foods.

Scent: It's rare that I change up my scent, but I stumbled upon Hippie Chic by True Religion and I don't think I'm ever going back. It's the perfect mix of musky and fruity with a hint of floral. With a description like this on their website, how can you go wrong? "Like the rise of the sun or the bloom of a flower, Hippie Chic leaves a lasting sense of wonderment."

Scarves: I'm a fan of scarves for any season, and a light scarf is the perfect accessory, especially on cool summer nights. I'm digging paisley right now (weird? I hope not) and am loving how it looks in a neutral color.

Sandals: Birkenstocks. Need I say more? I have two pairs that I wear religiously almost every day because they go with everything - dresses, denim shorts, jeans etc. A summer staple for sure.

Hydration: Water, water, water! I tote this bad boy around with me everywhere.

Beauty: Burt's Bees Lip Tint is my summer staple for lip care (helps protect your lips and provides a hint of color). For my toes, it's all about purple and turquoise. For my hair, I'm mostly using my homemade sea salt spray, but any sea mist will do for that beachy look.

Hat: I don't think I look good in hats, but for sun protection and style, Forever 21 has some great (and totally affordable) hats to wear this summer.

Jewelry: My go-to jewelry in the summer is a handful of silver rings and long, boho-inspired necklaces. I'll have a handful listed on my Etsy page (coming soon!) but Forever 21 also has some great pieces for less than $10 each.

Bag: YES to bucket bags! They're versatile and casual and can usually fit an extra swimsuit and sunblock.

Tee: We're embracing the muscle tee at our apartment this summer. From the gym to the patio, a muscle tee can be dressed up or down. (Usually) made of 100% cotton, they're breathable too. I'm currently crushing on every single one of Spiritual Gangster's tanks (currently wearing the "Trust the Universe" tee as we speak!)

Electronics: A portable charger is a must-have when you're out and about during the summer. I'm in the market for a new one, and love everything about the cute power banks from Free People.

Food: My diet has naturally evolved into a (mostly) meat-free diet, and Pure Food has been my go-to for easy, plant-based meals.
