End of July Summer Favorites

Stoney Clover woven collection

Can someone explain how we are at the end of July already? Like literally, we blink and I’m waking up to later and later sunrises. My son will begin college in a month? Shoot, I’m not ready to discuss that.

Instead, let’s discuss some of my summer favorites. 🙂

My Favorite Sunscreen Trio 

I’m so very pleased with the sunscreen trio I’ve got on rotation this summer. While I’ve always been loyal to Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 for outdoor workouts and beach days, I also wear Drunk Elephant’s Umbra Sheer™ Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 under my makeup every single day (year-round), and use Jason Family Sunscreen, Broad Spectrum SPF 45 on my body.

I don’t burn, or even turn red, or even freckle on my face.

All of my sunscreens are happily stored in my “SUN” pouch from Stoney Clover to keep things organized and looking pretty.

Stoney Clover Woven Collection

I can’t write this post about summer favorites without including Stoney Clover’s Woven Collection which was relaunched last week!

I’ve had my woven accessories since last summer and recommend you take a look and consider a pouch or purse – or something woven. Such classic, cute, stylish, durable accessories for summer that will never go out of style.

Stoney Clover X Olive & June

Um, we can please discuss that Stoney Clover has a collaboration with Olive & June?

I’ve failed to mention my love for Olive & June here on the blog and how I never returned to the nail salon since learning to do my own nails. Olive & June products turned me into someone capable of taking care of my own nails and even polishing them so perfectly that I don’t feel the need to pay someone else to do them for me.  Never in a million years did I think this would ever be possible for me or even something I would ever consider doing for myself but hey, the pandemic changed our lives, right?

I didn’t have time this week to take pictures of my nail polish collection (the above is a photo I shared a few months ago on Instagram) but maybe I will get to that this weekend and go into more details next week. In the meantime,

I definitely recommend the collab pouch because it includes three nail polishes (which are made with good for your nails ingredients, leaving out the bad stuff) plus the tools you need to care for your nails.

Summer Fashion Favorites & Sales

I haven’t had much time this week to browse my favorite fashion sites, however, I do have a few highlights to share.

I like this white dress from Lily Pulitzer. Also from Lily, this resort white tennis skirt with the matching top.

Who needs a Nordstrom sale when other brands and stores have even better (if you ask me) sales going on?

Shopbop is running up to 70% off right now — lots of good fashion on sale! These Havianas flip flops are so cheap and available in a really pretty shade of pink.

Grab these Alo Yoga leggings on sale and oh, my favorite Beyond Yoga Spacedye cropped tank is on sale too.

Bloomingdale’s is running a Summer Break sale with an extra 50% off clearance plus sale pricing on a large selection of items. I recommend you browse through the website – you will find something you need at a good price.
