10 Smmer Must Haves

I just love summer!  Sitting by the lake, pool, or beach and relaxing with a good book and a cool drink... Ahh!  Now that's my kind of fun.  


Do you recognize this pool from our trip to Charleston, SC?

1. New sandals/ flip flops.  I am loving these adorable ones I found at Target but my absolute favorite pairs are my Clark's.  They are so comfy I can walk around all week at Disney World and not have sore feet.  I must have about 4 different colors in my closet.



2.  Lots of great books.-- I have a few that I can not wait to be released like Summer of '69 by Elin Hilderbrand. 



3.  Sunglasses! I have a couple pair and try to leave them scattered around the house, car, and my purse since my eyes water like crazy in the sun. 

4.  A cool and refreshing drink-- preferably sweetened iced tea for me.  I used to love the fruited teas at Dunkin Donuts (buying a few a week) and was so bummed when they stopped offering them this year.  I've made do with a really delicious Peach Mango Green Tea by Crystal Light.

  

5.  Frozen treats- I love them all from popsicles to ice cream to Italian ice and ice cream bars but lately I am just loving the Yasso and Enlightened frozen yogurt bars.  

6.  Some pool floats for hanging by the lake-- even though we live right on the lake I don't really like swimming in the lake.  Two years ago I realized I could float on the lake and still get refreshed without having to worry about weeds or fish tickling my feet.  There are so many cute ones out there and I know I'd love something like this floating island (complete with a shade to keep me from burning).

7.  Sunscreen!  I tend to burn quite quickly and easily so a good strong sunscreen is a must.

8.  Aloe gel for when the sunscreen fails; as it inevitably does.

9.  A new bathing suit- I buy at least one each summer and this year I am just loving this one I found on Amazon.  It's so comfortable and flattering.



10.  A cute cover-up -- I have quite a few beach cover ups and all of them have sleeves; my shoulders tend to burn first (and fast!) at the beach so I like something lightweight enough to wear in the sun but that still blocks some of the rays.  I've had my eye on this one this year to go with my new suit.

    1. I don't know but they are pretty darn good. I don't feel so bad eating those as I would constantly eating ice cream.

    1. I have those exact pairs of Clark's in my Amazon cart right now and I'm trying to convince myself not to buy them.. :) It's a bit of an obsession. But I don't have blue ones.

  4. We have some similar items on our lists. I have been thinking I may need a cover up!

    1. It's great for when I don't yet have time to change but don't want to be walking around in my bathing suit.
