A Southern Girl's Guide to the Summer


Of course this list could apply to any lady this summer, but you know I'm especially proud to be a Southern gal!

1. Jack Rogers:  If you don't have a pair, invest in some today!  I say invest, because they're a bit pricey for a pair of flip flops..but they're so much more than just flip flops.  They last foreverrrrr and can be dressed up or down.  A definite summer must have.  I recently got a pair of the "Cork" colored ones (you can see them here) and they are probably my favorites so far.

2. Monogrammed iPhone case:  Because, hello?!, everything has to be monogrammed.  I just found this Aztec case yesterday, and fell in love.  

3. Studs:  I am a huge fan of teeny tiny earrings...especially when they're in the shape of a cute animal. (My birds are my favorite). They are perfect for any outfit, and especially great for a more casual look this summer.

4.  Nail Polish.  'Tis the season to have fun, bright nails. :-)  My current favorite is Peach Daiquiri by Essie.   

5.  MoroccanOil:  My hair frizzes the second I step out into this 100% humidity.  MoroccanOil is the only thing that semi-tames my hair.  I can't remember the last time I bought a bottle because it lasts for so long.  Caution: Do not buy the generic brand from beauty supplies...unless you like your hair to be unusually greasy.

6.  Floppy Hat: I have my grey, monogrammed hat ready to go for this summer.  It's definitely a fun accessory for beach trips.

I can't believe how soon summer will be here!  Any additional items you would add to this list?

Happy Friday!!

I am in love with my floppy hats! I can't wait to wear them again. I picked up 2 on clearance at Target last year. :) I love the grey monogrammed one! It looks like one I was looking at from Kohls last year.
Moroccan Oil is amazing stuff! I use an Argan oil, now on my face, hands and hair. I found a 4 oz bottle for 42.00 with a 30% off coupon.

I have my ears pierced but I rarely rarely ever wear earrings-- i wonder if my holes are even open anymore.

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said...

I just bought that polish, but haven't had the chance to use it yet. I have never been a hat person, but I am reccinsidering. I would love to try one of those big, floppy ones!

I got some morocconoil stuff in a birch box and I'm obsessed. I got a hair masque and it was amazing. My hair has never been softer. I do need to get a floppy hat though!
