As we head into the official start of the best season of the year, Carrie and Patty put together a list of some of their favorite things for summer. Need a new swimsuit, a new hat or the perfect treat, we have you covered.

Carrie’s Favorites
lively-swm
LIVELY SWimSUITS

Lively is my go to brand for swim suits right now. While, Lively make bras, undies, loungewear, activewear, and more, I am huge fan of their swim line. They are taking the best elements of high-style and ultimate comfort. Not only are they comfortable but flattering on all body types.

BEEK SANDALS

Beek Sandals believes that it ACTUALLY IS possible to look beautiful and feel comfortable at the same time. These hand made sandals are made of high quality leather, provide arch support and are feminine. They are a summer essential for me whether I am traveling or at home.

HELEN KAMINSky STraW HAT


Helen Kaminsky believes that fashion should be designed with longevity in mind. They make high quality pieces crafted with integrity. I have had one Helen Kaminsky straw hat for over 10 years. I have worn it exercising, in the pool- with the brim curled up and down and it is still in great shape. It will be your go-to hat this Summer.

SUPERGOOP! UNSEEN SUNSCREEN

The original 100% invisible, weightless, scentless sunscreen with broad spectrum SPF protection, skincare benefits & a natural finish. This cult favorite is the original invisible sunscreen! With an oil-free formula & a natural finish, this innovative, antioxidant-rich essential glides onto skin to provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB & infrared protection while helping to filter blue light. Bonus: It doubles as a makeup-gripping primer!

bomba-no-show-socks
BOMBA NO SHOW SOCKS

Bombas No Show Socks are something I wear almost everyday whether I am playing paddle tennis or going to work. Like other Bombas, the No Shows are designed for comfort while being specially engineered to never fall down. They provide maximum coverage and stay in place just below the edge of your shoe, exactly where they’re supposed to be. The best-looking socks no one will ever know you’re wearing.

judy-blume-forever
JUDY BLOOM FOREVER

“Judy Blume Forever” will feel like a nostalgic trip to childhood, back when they were eagerly turning the pages of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.Tales of a Fourth Grade NothingSuperfudge, or any of Blume’s books that have delighted fans for generations. It is a charming introduction to the author, her life story, and the inspirations behind a number of her books.

PattY’s SUMMER Favorites

GLAMPWEAR HATS

I am obsessed with Glampwear Straw Hats. They provide amazing sun coverage with a dose of fun. Glampwear reimagine iconic styles…embellish the basics, by adding whimsical flair to give their hats attitude and character. 

STATE BAGS: LORIMER FANNY PACK

There is not a trip or adventure that I go on where I do not take my State Bags’ Lorimer Fanny Pack with me. It is equal part stylish and practical and is the perfect size for all my essentials. I love a crossbody bag- especially when I am on the go.

HONEY MAMA’s TRUFFLE BARS

Just imagine “Your favorite candy bar went to a meditation retreat and came back enlightened”. Your most desired indulgence now treats you like the vibrant and vivacious person you are. Honey Mamas Truffle Bars are beloved for its one-of-a-kind texture, often compared to brownie batter, chocolate truffles, or fudge – the real treat is discovering each bar is made from only a limited number of nutrient-rich whole food ingredients.

TART VINEGAR

Tart Vinegar is a small batch raw vinegar brand established in 2019 by Chris Crawford, a former line cook based in Brooklyn, New York. What lies in that green bottle is alive and raw (most commercial vinegars are pasteurized), savory and vegetal with just the right amount of pucker. Now instead of being a supporting player, this vinegar is the start of the show. Tart Vinegar is my secret weapon for dressings and marinades.
