It's in the bag!

Our pool officially opened on Saturday so I knew it was time to pack my pool bag with my summer essentials......My Ray Ban aviators, I never leave home without them
Tory Burch flip flops, my absolute favorite flip flops. So comfortable plus the gold little emblem is so cute.

Oil of Olay Complete. My dermatologist told me years ago that this was the best lotion for your face because it has both a spf factor and zinc oxide. He told me that I could waste my time and money on other products but in the end I would find that this was the best. I took his advice and have never bothered with anything else.
Protection for my body, this one smells the best.
Gotta protect the little ones too!I always forget my lips and they always get burned. This year I am ready, a spf lip balm is in my bag.

My summer reading, highly recommended by a friend.My summer playlist is downloaded and ready to go.
My wide rimmed hat for the days when it is just too hot or I've had too much sun.
The other days, my lulu lemon headband to keep my hair out of my face. These are hands down the absolute best headbands. Our STL store cannot keep these in stock. The minute they get a new shipment of headbands the word spreads like wildfire.

If I am feeling a little glam, or just don't want to get my hair wet, I will put my hair up with this twisty.After a day at the pool, I wash my hair with Frederic Fekkai's Marine Summer Hair line. This line will remove any chlorine left behind, plus repair and protect the hair from any sun damage.

My tan extender...I want to still be tan in October!
My all time favorite lotion and perfume, Bobbi Brown Beach. This perfume smells like coconut, suntan lotion, and the beach..but the good smelling beach, not the end of the day, sweaty, dirty beach. Next time you pass a Bobbi Brown counter you must smell this, you will love it. She really has bottled summer.I think I am ready for summer!

  9. Hi! I found you on Heather's blog...loved visiting yours :) Oil of Olay is the only thing I wear on my face. I started using it when I was a young teen and it's my fav. I also just read Heart of the Matter- it made me really sad but I enjoyed it a lot.
    Love the hat! I am looking for a big black one.

  10. I love your swim blog. It is too cute! I also wear the Lululemon headbands at the pool; they are absolutely the best! And with all the fun colors, it is easy to find one that matches my swim suits. Fun post!
