a good baseball cap is an essential for a hot summer pool day! i love this little embroidered american flag hat that i found on etsy! customize it to any color you want!shop now
you will not believe me when I tell you that these ray-ban dupes are only $15 on amazon! they look almost identical to my double bridge ray-bans that are well over $150. i found these last year and couldn't believe the quality! i love packing affordable pairs like this for a beach trip if you don't want your more expensive sunglasses to get scratched by sand at the beach.shop now
I am a HUGE fan of BruMate for a hot summer day! keeps your drink so cold, and you don't have to worry about condensation dripping everywhere. you can shop this one on amazon too, and it comes in over 25 colors! i love the metallic blue.shop now

target does it again! I have been ALL about target lately. this sweatshirt actually comes with matching shorts, but i love it on it's own as well! less than $25! perfect to throw on over a bikini when you're running in and out of the house on a hot day.shop now
my anine bing addiction is real... but you just cannot beat the style and quality! love this t-shirt. also comes in black in the collage above! festive but also neutral enough to wear year round. i'd definitely style this with denim shorts and aviators! this brand is always worth the investment IMO.shop now
perfect slides to slip on and off at the pool or beach! love that the material is water resistant!shop now
another amazon find that I just ordered! cute one shoulder trend + love the high waistline which is super flattering. only $27 for the top and bottom, and it comes in a ton of colors!shop now

i have an addiction to abercrombie. these are my current favorite denim shorts! I love the longer length and the high waist. so comfy and amazing quality for only $60! can be dressed up or down!shop now
as always it’s so important to remember that, while we all get a chance to go to barbecues and backyard pool parties, this holiday is a time to recognize all of those who lost their lives fighting for the safety and protection of our country! such an important thing to remember as we kick-off the start of summer with our loved ones – we wouldn’t be able to freely celebrate if it wasn’t for them! happy memorial day everyone!
