Hello Summer Friday Favorites

Since yesterday was the official first day of summer I am dedicating this edition of Friday Favorites to it! That coupled with the fact that many in the US are experiencing the intense heat we call typical in FL. I am so very sorry if you are suffering right now. We’re used to it here and know how to adapt, on top of that we have a/c EVERYWHERE so we hide inside. What I’m seeing on TV just looks miserable so I hope it cools off for everyone soon!

Funny, thing? It doesn’t feel like summer just started. Maybe because it has felt like summer for quite some time now. Nothing changes too much here once the new season has officially arrived but there are some things that caught my attention this week.

Hello Summer Friday Favorites

Since I had Wednesday off in honor of Juneteenth and it was my sister’s birthday we visited them at the beach! They go every year and rent a condo. We had a great day despite it being very breezy and way too chilly for me to wear a swimsuit. It was in the 80’s with gusty winds. The ocean is still beautiful and the sound of the waves crashing is so calming. It was definitely a favorite!

Let’s talk summer jewelry favorites. I am all about a good bracelet stack. Typically I wear my gold beaded bracelets on the daily but come summer time I am enjoying a little color. I ordered three of these, one in ivory, one in pink, and one in black. The pink is going back because it looks kind of cheap, the ivory and the black are keepers!

One of the ways I keep my make up from melting off is by using a good primer. I love this one from ELF and have repurchased it a few times. The eyebrow pencil is one I have been using for years – I briefly stopped and then returned to using it. The setting spray is new to me but so far I like it better than the Milani version I had been using!

Here’s something noteworthy: ELF Cosmetics is having an exclusive In-App Sale with LTK (LikeToKnow.It the affiliate program I use). You can save 30% on your $45+ purchase from 6/21- 6/24. Follow me on LTK here if you are not already! The LTK App is a free shopping app where you can follow me (as well as other influencers) and easily click on links to products. It doesn’t cost you anything extra but I make a small commission. I thank you very much for shopping my links!

Summer means lighter dressing, why not go sleeveless? This denim vest has been making the rounds on Instagram. I was thrilled to find it in store. I bought it! It’s regular bra friendly which is such a bonus to me. I am wearing a small – I’d say it runs TTS.

I ran into Target early on Wednesday morning after dropping my husband off at the dentist for a cleaning. He still can’t drive so I’ve been the chauffer. I am way too antsy to sit in a waiting room and would rather spend time in a fitting room! It has been a hot minute since I tried on anything at Target.

Summer also means dresses for me! They are just so much cooler and I love the idea of a one and done piece. This weekend Avara has 30% Avara Exclusive Dresses, like the Gentry dress I am wearing in a size small! Use code DRESS30 to save 30%.

Little update on my husband. We went to our post op appointment on Monday and got great news! The pathology indicated that no further treatment was needed at this time. Such a relief! The catheter was also removed and while that was painful it was a huge relief as well. Thank you all so very much for your kind words, support, and prayers – I covet them!

Another weekend is upon us and I am happy about that. We have zero plans and that almost makes me even more excited! I plan to pop into the library and Loft. I’ve joined a group of friends on IG and we regularly share Loft try ons. It’s fun to see what different stores carry and even better when we end up choosing the same things!

I hope you have a nice weekend, no matter what’s on the schedule, I hope you have time to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate!
