Secret Squad, who’s ready for a little sizzling Summer LOVE?
This is the time of year when I really like to embrace easy styles and feel-good-fun to help me stay cool and comfortable. It won’t be too long before the temperatures dip and it’s time for pumpkin-spice everything again, so lean into the heat and check out my top must-have Summer Loves!
Feel the Heat and the Beat!
You just HAVE to push play on our son, Jordan’s, newest single She! It’s my favorite song of the summer! I’m obsessed!!! Jordan’s 10-week tour with the Jonas Brothers and Kelsea Ballerini starts in Las Vegas on August 20th. Watch the amazing music video below!
Have Another Round!
Looking for something to make your poolside tablescape pop? Shake things up with this Napkin Ring Set from Edie Parker! These gorgeous rings are in yellow and green acrylic (they call it MARGARITA MULTI, which I love!), and will add the perfect touch of #summer to your next backyard party!
Here Comes the Sun!
With its asymmetric brim and chic black bow, this gorgeous wide-brimmed sun hat from Anthropologie is not only rated UPF 50+, but it also features a foam interior band for comfort. An added perk I love: each one is hand-woven using sustainable palm fibers! So cute, environmentally responsible, AND protects your skin…this hat is a trifecta of my favorite things!
Like a Summer Rain!
Got hard water? Co-owners of Nine Zero One salon, (and previous IGAS guests / MY hairstylists / favorite people ever) Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri, created the Raindrops™ filtration system to purify your water and transform your ordinary rinse into a natural rain-shower experience. It’s like Brita for your showerhead! This filter leaves your hair and skin looking radiant, healthy, and fresh! It is truly the secret to making your hair color last all summer!
* Pro-tip: Not sure if you have hard water? Look at your toilet bowl. If the water leaves a ring, it’s time for Raindrops!
Rise and Shine, It’s Yoga Time!
Let’s get active! If you don’t already have a POPFLEX Active yoga mat by Blogilates creator and past IGAS guest) Cassie Ho, you’re definitely going to want to treat yourself! With its luxury vegan suede and ultra-absorbent texture, this is the thickest, lightest, and most gorgeous anti-slip yoga mat ever. The hardest part will be deciding between the colors!
Fun in the Sun Fashion!
I just can’t say enough great things about RipSkirt Hawaii! These fashionable pieces are easy-on easy-off, and are made out of anti-wrinkle and quick-dry material. These incredibly comfortable skirts come in four different lengths, the absolute cutest prints, and they’re just perfect all of your summer plans! You’ll wear this skirt from the beach to the bistro!

When Life Gives You Lemons!
Thirsty for a little something sweet? Sip a “Cool to Be Kind Cooler”, the summer drink of my dreams! This recently featured Drink of the Day is a refreshing take on a classic summer lemonade!
Summertime really should get a speeding ticket; it’ll be over before you know it, so don’t let my Summer Loves pass you by! For all of your summer plans, take care of yourself, stay safe and remember: some of the best memories are made in flip-flops!
