Summer Style

June 3, 2013



A top knot, my custom-made Merl Kinzie body chain, and my new United by Blue backpack (via Shop Good) have quickly become summer staples.

What’s in the backpack? 
• My Kindle – I’m finally reading Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In but am going to move on to some non-fiction with the Silo Series Wool, per my sister’s recommendation.
• My iPhone 5 – I’ve opted to leave the DSLR at home for a summer on the beach… I don’t want to risk getting sand in my nice camera. I’ve also become a Bejewled Blitz addict.
• My passport
• My bikini – If I’m checking my luggage I’m sure to bring at least one bikini in my backpack – it’s really all I need.
• My Blockshop scarf – It doubles as a top and a beach towel.
• YSL glossy lip stain – I’ve ditched most of my makeup for the summer – but throwing a pop of color on my lips makes me feel somewhat groomed and put together.
• My laptop – for checking email, keeping up with work, and writing here of course.
• Pen + Notebook – from list-making to dear-diarying, nothing beats old fashioned pen to paper.

What are your on-the-go summertime essentials?
