For the holiday weekend we are heading to Texas to visit my parents for the week. We haven’t been back to Texas since last Summer and this time my brother will be with us as well. I am really looking forward to time with the family, riding on the boat, and hanging around the pool for a few days. I feel like we have just been so rushed with life lately that it will be a nice change to relax for a few days. When I started packing a few days ago I made sure to take my Summer essentials with me. A great hat, fun sandals, cute towel which can be used as a pool or picnic towel, classic sunnies, and magazine for lounging. I also made sure to pack my sunscreen and beauty essentials which I recently started using and will be sharing more on those in the coming weeks. Summertime is definitely the season when I buy more trendy items versus just investing in basics. I love wearing comfy dresses, fun prints, espadrilles in every color, and changing out my sunglasses just because. It’s hard to believe it’s already halfway through Summer and soon we will be talking about Fall trends and getting ready for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Until then, I am going to soak in every ounce of Summer this weekend and enjoy the holiday. Have a great one friends.
