Let’s face it — the official start of summer is upon us!
Summer 2016 Must Haves

I, for one, love any season where wearing my trademark neon and bright colors isn’t frowned upon. Thankfully, Hawaii has been good to me in that category. Middle of December? I think I’ll go with the bright purple pants. But I digress…

I put together some of my Summer 2016 must haves for anyone else who is prepping for the new season! For clothing, you can’t go wrong with a white tee and colorful shorts for a lunch with your girlfriends, a chambray dress that doubles as a beach coverup or, my favorite — a colorful floral romper! I live in my Rainbow sandals for both beach time and casual outings and these flamingo Soludos are too cute to pass on. BONUS: Soludos are SO comfy!

For those that live at the pool, you absolutely, without-a-doubt need a funky flamingo float, some chick lit and a fabulous swimsuit – Maaji is the best! I use the summer months to keep my accessories simple. My go-tos include my RayBan aviators, custom Baseball Lacelet and a fun clutch for happy hour. Bonus points if it’s neon or has tassels!  You’ll rarely see me in a full face of makeup during the hottest months of the year, but I turn to NARS for lip color that doesn’t melt off and color pigment that stays all day!

And just because I can’t get enough of the pineapple trend happening everything, I had to include this phone case.

For those that are packing up and heading out of town, put all your summer musts in a fun duffel bag.

Now that I’ve dished on my own musts — share yours!

  • I LOVE my embroidered Soludos from last year – totally would have those on my list. Also: lots of great books, high-neck halter bikinis (love that current "in" style), and of course tons of sunscreen for my pale self 🙂 I've been seeing fun pool floats like that all over and am thinking we might need to acquire one or two…
