Women's Summer Essentials
I love adding things I need to my wardrobe each season that are inexpensive and comfortable. For summer I love a couple of comfy dresses, shorts, tank tops and the perfect black swimsuit. I also try to find a dress I can wear to weddings and gatherings for each season too. These are a few of my favorites right now.
Recipe Ideas for the Week
Stuff I Love
What I'm Reading - I'm currently reading Songs In Ursa Major by Emma Brodie and loving the rock and roll start up story. If you enjoyed Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid this book is for you! I read most everything from my Kindle. I love that I can have multiple books in one little device that I can toss in my purse when we go somewhere.
What We're Watching - We are watching Startup on Netflix. It's a few years old and was originally on Crackle. There are three seasons so far and we are hooked.
What I Just Got - I had been looking for some rubber Birkenstock type sandals that were a less expensive version. I found these FunkyMonkey Double Buckle Slides on Amazon. They are so comfortable! I wear these in the garden and around the farm. When they get dirty I hose them off.
What I Want To Try - I've been wanting to try these Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patches. I get monthly acne around my chin and I've read these work amazing. Have you tried them? Are they as good as the reviews say they are?
What I'm Trying - I've been looking all over for some simple, cotton capris. I love them for wearing around during the summer and needed some replacement pairs. I finally found this pair of Champion Jersey Capris. They just came in the mail and I think they will be perfect!
Clean Skin Care I Love
Favorites Around The Web
This is my favorite cast iron pan that I use almost everyday. It is inexpensive and has really held up well to all the use.
Speaking of cast iron pans this chainmail scrubber is my favorite way to clean the pan with water and then I heat the pan to dry and sanitize.
I love a great hat for summer days that I don't want to deal with my hair. This cute straw hat with a black band looks perfect for summer.
I'm loving this stylish two tiered fruit basket. It would be perfect for fruit or ripening tomatoes from the garden. I like that I could put bananas on top and then have plenty of room for everything else on the bottom tier.
I'm a huge fan of beautiful cake stands. I love that this wooden cake stand also has a glass dome to keep the cake fresh.
I love a citronella candle for the patio to keep bugs at bay. This lovely ceramic version is perfect and then I would use this pot for a plant once the candle is gone.
I love days at the beach, but honestly I don't like laying in the sand. I'm loving these beach lounge chairs that have carrying straps on the back.
I love a flowing top for summer. They go great with shorts, a skirt or leggings. This pretty babydoll top is perfect for the hot summer days.
I had a pair of mule clogs in high school (in the 90s) that looked just like these strappy mule clogs! I think I might need them.
I've always been more of a bright red or pink girl for pedicures, but I'm really liking all the pearlescent white pedicures I'm seeing. Pretty!
I hope you have a fabulous week!
