Summer Time Essentials!

By Kandace McVickar, Creative Director

It’s officially Summer! A time of gathering, adventures, and fun in the sun!

Here are a few Summer time essentials that I can’t live without from our new Spring | Summer 2018 Collection and a few others to maximize fun in the sun!

1) Bug Spray

I don’t know about you but I do not like to play connect the dots with all the bug bits I accumulate over the summer. Over the years I have tried many different sprays and nothing compares to this DIY bug spray I’ve been using for years and smells great. It’s so easy to make, I cannot live without it!

  • 6 oz. Witch Hazel
  • 2 oz. Castor Oil
  • 5 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil
  • 15 Drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • 15 Drops of Citronella Oil
Combine all ingredients in desired spray bottle, I like to use old perfume bottles I feel fancy. Shake before each use.


2) Flora Hair Tie

I wear my Flora Hair Tie all the time. I rock a messy bun 90% of the time and with the Flora Hair Tie my messy bun looks more presentable. The red and blue floral options add a touch of feminine to my plain tank and jean looks I constantly wear. Plus sometimes you just want to look cute while trying to stay cool in the summer heat. Grab it here.


3) Sun Tea

Staying hydrated is essential for summer time, so make the most out of the summer sun by making some delicious sun tea! And it’s just as easy to make as it is to drink! Put 4 tea bags of your choice in a clean 2 quart glass container, fill with water and close container, and place outside where sunlight can strike if for 4-6 hours. Add ice and some lemon and you’re good to go!

4) Ajna Boho Crossbody Bag

One of the hottest trends for Summer 2018, this bohemian-style bag pairs great with a simple tee and jeans, neutrals, and pops of color. It’s fun and functional for carrying all your summer essentials. Grab it here.

5) Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist by Beautycounter

Sunscreen is a must have all year round. Did you know you could get a sunburn on a cloudy day? The Countersun Mineral Mist is a new product line by Beauty Counter made from non-nano zinc oxide to ensure no potential risks or harmful effects to the body. Beautycounter never uses Octinoxate or Oxybenzone, meaning that their sunscreens are safe for coral reefs. For more information on Countersun Mineral Sunscreen click here.

6) Vasant Kimono

I can’t live without our bright handsewn cotton Vasant Kimono because not only is the perfect pairing for a skirt or jeans, it makes a great swimsuit cover up for a day at the pool! Grab it here.

Happy shopping!
