Wednesday Wish List No. 10

I live in Southern California. The land of perpetual sunshine! Plus, we have Disneyland which makes it even more amazing.

The fact that summer is here is a little strange to me. So far, 2014 has been FLYING by and I feel like it is still March. I am sure this is partially due to the fact that we never had winter and are now experiencing a statewide drought. I think there was literally three days of rain between October and April, which is no good in my book – I love staying in bed and listening to the rain.

So here I am, half way through 2014 making my summer favorites wish list and wishing I was going to the beach today instead of going to work.

1. No beach day, pool party or a Sunday cruise in the car is complete without the tunes of the Beach Boys playing in the background. There is something about that music that just makes me smile and gets me ready to get some s’mores!

2. Every fair-skinned lady needs an adorable floppy hat and this one is neutral enough to wear with multiple colors. It is also casual enough for my swimsuit and dressy enough to wear in the evening (to cover my frizzy beach hair!)

3. Lip balm and sunscreen in one? Yes please. This Blistex is my favorite lip balm and I actually use it year-round, but I definitely make sure I have one tucked away in my beach bag.

4. Speaking of beach bag… This one makes me want to grab a 50-50 bar out of the ice chest and I love the rope handle.

5. Two years ago Leah got me an adorable Mason jar decanter for Christmas. This one is pretty similar to the one I have. Isn’t it cute? Perfect for iced tea for Houston and lemonade for me!

6. I think this dress goes perfectly with all of the accessories in this list! I like the wider straps, because I loathe strapless bras, and the cinched waist for some shape. It would be perfect for a suit cover-up or even by itself for a night out.

7. This necklace would be great with the dress for a nice dinner near the beach. I only buy pieces that are really versatile, and I think this necklace would be great with multiple outfits. It is a statement necklace without being too overwhelming.

8. Cornhole!!! When we were at the Wilson’s a few months ago the guys literally played cornhole for six hours or more. This cute table top version would be great for picnics and BBQs without having to lug the full size game in the back of a truck!

9. I don’t own any Toms, but I really like these pretty crochet ones! They look more delicate and girly than the solid canvas ones.

10. Now, I don’t sunbathe, but no girl likes tan lines! This top is so pretty, even if no one would ever see me in it.

11. Anyone suddenly get a craving for an Icee? How about orange sherbet? Well, if I can’t have either one of those things, I will settle for a scarf in yummy colors and I can wear it through summer since it is light and airy!

12. My most FAVORITE thing on this week’s wishlist. My Ocean Potion facial sunscreen!!! I wear this every day. Even if I don’t put on all my makeup, I still put on my sunscreen. My morning routine goes like this: face wash, moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation. The sunscreen isn’t oily and has never caused breakouts. It does have a slight “tropical” smell, but I like it.

I hope your summer is off to a great start and that your weekend will be filled with sunshine. Mine will be filled with a yard sale. Seriously, please come buy my old stuff!!!
