Summer Essentials {Sweet Summer Link-Up}

   Happy Wednesday!  I am very excited about today's post because it's a link up with some amazing bloggers.  Not to mention, it's summer time too. ;)  Today, I'm sharing some of my essentials for summer!  Be sure to read all the other posts here!

A Polaroid Camera - Okay, okay, you don't need a polaroid camera, but it is fun to have!  Especially, during the summer!  I am so glad I purchased a polaroid camera.  It's well worth the price.

Flowy Dresses - My favorite kind of dresses, during the summer, are maxi and shift dresses.  On the days you don't feel like putting a whole outfit together, you can throw on a dress, and "Volia" you have an outfit.  Plus, they're great for those hot humid days!

Pool Floats -There are so many adorable pool floats to choose from these days.  My two favorite ones I have found are this flamingo float and this watermelon float.  Aren't they the cutest?!

Refreshing Drinks - There is nothing like relaxing by the pool with a nice cold glass of lemonade or sweet tea!  It's so refreshing after a long hot day. 

Sunglasses - I have a confession to share.  I bought my first pair of aviator sunglasses a few weeks ago.  At first, I wasn't sure if I liked them, but they kind of grew on me!  Now, I can't stop wearing them!

Fun Prints - A few of my favorite prints for summer are anchors, stripes, polka dots, and of course, Lilly Pulitzer!

A Hat - Whether it be a floppy hat, baseball cap, or a fedora, a hat is another one of my essentials for summer.  This year though, I have really gotten into wearing hats!  I am slowly building up my collection. ;)

Sandals and Flip-Flops - This one is kind of obvious, but it's definitely an essential!  During the summer, all you want to do is slip on some shoes and head out the door.  Flip flops and sandals have always been my go to.  I also, really love boat shoes and Keds

Watermelon - Watermelon is my favorite summer snack.  Just like lemonade and sweet tea, it's so refreshing! 

A New Swimsuit - I love it when all of the stores start bringing out their swimsuits.  I have seen a lot of really cute ones this year {I say that every year!} I linked a few swimsuits and cover ups above!

Good Books - Whenever I go on vacation, I need a whole suitcase just for all my books!  I absolutely, love reading but don't have a lot of time to do so.  However, during the summer, I have a little more free time.  Read this post to see what my favorite books are.

What are some of your summer essentials?  Don't forget to check out all of the other posts!

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
