Happy 4th of July weekend/week! Are you celebrating this weekend going into Wednesday or starting the 4th into next weekend? July is my favorite month and The Fourth is of course my favorite holiday because we have so much to celebrate (our wedding anniversary on the 2nd and both of our birthdays at the end of the month), so we’re just going to celebrate all week long to kick off this sweet summer month.
I’ve picked up a few things lately (and pulled some things out that I got a while ago), so I thought it’d be a good time to start a monthly edit with you all to share what I’m loving lately! Plus, there are some really amazing 4th sales, free shipping, etc. so it’s a great time to do a little shopping.
Rattan Beach Chairs. After cleaning out our pool house and finally deciding to ditch our dirty old Tommy Bahama chairs, I went on the hunt for a stylish alternative that we could use at the pool, beach and the park in downtown Newburyport (love a good picnic date!). These are so fun and timeless… and I’m obsessed with all things rattan! These ones are also super cute if you’re willing to spend the money. Currently 20% off!
Beach Umbrella. We don’t have this exact color, but we do have it in a peach-orange hue. I love it! It’s the cutest umbrella on the beach and really sturdy. Currently 20% off!
Patterned Planter. Whenever I find a cute new planter or vase, I scoop it up. I like to swap them out every now and then for a fresh look! This patterned one adds a playful vibe.
Floppy Beach Hat. I bought this one a while ago (you might have seen it in my One Room Challenge office reveal!). My grandmother used to have a picture in her stairway of a little girl in a floppy beach hat and it has always stuck with me as a timeless summer piece. Currently only $14 with code on site!
Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Face Mist. Face mists always seemed so silly to me before I bought my first one a couple of years ago and now, I’m addicted. Whenever I need a little moment/de-stressor, I spritz this stuff on my face—it’s an instant calming effect and it’s especially nice on a hot day in the summer.
Striped Jumpsuit. Jumpers and stripes are my jam this summer, so I hit the jackpot with this one. It’s actually much more flattering than it looks on the model. I love that I can dress it up or down with a quick shoe change, or throw a sweater over it for a chilly evening. Currently 25% off!
White Sandals. I love the fun Greek vibe happening on these summer slides! They add a bit of fun to any outfit, casual or fancy.
Floor Pillow. One home decor item I absolutely recommend with a baby or toddler (or kid of any age really) is floor pillows! They’re great for outdoor spaces too and are easy extra seating for guests. Currently 20% off!
Beautycounter Sunscreen. I’m a huge Beautycounter fan and love that they came out with a new mineral sunscreen this summer. Chase has had sensitive skin and eczema that flairs up since he was born. We have always used Beautycounter’s baby products on him… the wash, the oil and the baby balm (which is incredible for dry baby skin—I brought this with us to the hospital when he was born and it was a life saver for his dry hands and feet). So, this year now that we’re able to use sunscreen on him, this one was a no-brainer! We have the spray, lotion and this stick version which makes is SO easy applying sunscreen to a toddler constantly on the move.
Beach Towel. These are my absolute favorite beach towels! I stocked up and bought a couple more this year. They are so soft and I love the fun tassels and classic stripes. Currently 20% off!
Round Woven Handbag. So cute! I love timeless pieces like this.
White Cover Up. Love this simple white cover up for summer.
Pink Nikes. Being neutral-loving, I was nervous these would be too bold for me, but they are such a pretty shade of coral-pink. Plus, most of my athleisure is neutral so it’s nice to have a pop of color. And, equally as important—they are ridiculously comfortable.
I’d love to hear some new items you picked up for summer or are loving this month! Let me know in the comments!
