Summer is in full swing, and there are a few items that I have been loving in the warm weather!

Emi Jay Silver Glitter 3-Pack Hair Ties (here)
In the warm weather, I love keeping my hair off my neck and shoulders. These hair ties are not only cute, but they don't leave a crease in your hair. Additionally, at my last haircut I received a little tsk-tsking due to the fact that I was securing my ponytails too tight (using regular hair bands) and causing breakage around the crown of my head! Whoops - no bueno! These ties are cute and they keep breakage to a minimum, ensuring healthier hair and fewer flyaways.

Essie Nail Polish in Braziliant (here)
Orange nail polish for the win! Summer is the perfect time for coral and orange hues on your toesies. This hue looks so pretty with tan skin.

C. Wonder Bold Cat Eye Sunglasses (here)
I purchased these in the spring and they have been so fun to wear this summer. C. Wonder makes some really cute sunglasses, yes?!

Now that we've redone our screened porch, it's so much fun bringing our dinner outdoors. I've built up a fun collection of melamine plates which are just perfect for dining alfresco.

Benefit's Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer (here)
I'm still really loving this primer. It's lightweight but I feel that it really grips my makeup. Nobody wants to enter a hot car and experience makeup meltdown! The cost was a bit hard to justify at first, but now I will make sure this always has a place in my makeup bag.

L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator (here)
I switched to this BB cream from the Garnier version I first tried, and I've been really happy with it! I don't know that I've seen any major differences between the two, but without being able to put my finger on the reason, this one just seems nicer. Maybe it's because of the shiny metallic tube and the very soft floral fragrance. It contains SPF which is important to use on a daily basis anyway, but it's light enough for just a little coverage when you want to hit the beach or the lake without a full face of makeup. That plus a little gel blush and you're all set!
What are two or three of your summer essentials? I'd love to hear about any beauty products you use in the summer that you swear by!
