Girl Chat - June 2017

Hey hey!! It's time for another month of Girl Chat! I hope you will join in the fun! This month we are talking all about Summer Staples!

If you're a regular, you'll remember I already posted about summer essentials all under $20 last weeks (whoops!) so I'll be sharing that again with the addition of some more stuff

Here's a re-cap of what I rounded up - all of these are under $20!

1. Swim Cover - I need a new one and I'm liking this one!

2., Sunglasses - I'm a big fan of cat eye sunglasses, I like these because they are a very subtle cat eye

3. Mesh Beach Bag - Yes! This is a must for us. A mesh bag comes in handy at the pool, the beach, wherever!

4. Beach Towel  - How fun is this one?!

5. Jean Shorts - I just bought these and am a huge fan. Right now they are under $10!

6. Tank dress -  I pretty much live in basic tank dresses in the summer, I have quite the collection forming but they're just so comfy!

7. Sandals - It's great to have a pair of basic, but dressier than flip flops, sandals and these are a great price point!

8. Swimsuit - I shared the other week about my new favorite swimsuit but I thought I'd change it up a bit and show this flattering one piece! It comes in 5 colors

9. Floppy Hat - Over the years, I started being very sun conscious and I really try and wear a hat whenever I'm in the sun for a decent amount of time. I have more of a fedora floppy hat (can't find it online anymore) but I love the look of this one!

10. Waterproof picnic blanket - We are all about having picnics in the summer and it wouldn't go as smooth if not for a waterproof blanket. These are awesome just to throw down anywhere!


In addition, for my kiddos their summer staples are definitely Natives!! We LOVE these shoes and they are perfect for Summer!! They come in a few different styles and so many colors! My kids actually wear these shoes from Spring- Fall so totally worth the investment


Another summer staple is some easy, lightweight makeup. I try not to wear much at all during the week, but a must have is my It Cosmetic's Bye Bye Foundation. It's SPF 50 and the coverage is so, so good.

Summer isn't Summer in our backyard without water balloons!! We discovered these awesome ones last year and they are THE BEST!! They are pricey but I will pay if that means I don't have to fill up and tie each balloon individually!!


There's of course more things like sunscreen, sun hats, etc. but I would say these are the top summer staples around here!

I can't wait to read everyone's posts! So happy Summer is here!!

We hope you link up below!

  1. That pool towel is SO cute! I really need to get another for me... although in all honesty I have yet to get in the pool, HA! It's just so dang cold. We need to try those balloons too. Can you believe we never have!

  2. Those water balloons sound PERFECT! I really want to buy my nephew some natives - he loves being outside and I think they would be perfect for him!

  3. Still crushing over your summer favorites and that awesome towel! I'm going to have to look into those shoes for the boys. We just picked up a pack of those buncho balloons and can't wait to try them out!

  5. I have that same suit! Isn't it so comfortable?

  6. We love NATIVES and people ask all the time where they can get some! We also love those bunch O balloons! They are AWESOME...xoxo ERIN

  7. Love that foundation. I swear by it as well. We have those balloons, but haven't tried them yet. I can't wait too. And I was just looking for those shorts online because I couldn't find them in store.

  8. That pineapple beach towel is SO cute! Although we won't need any pool towels for the next 25 years since we have so many. Lol.
