A Little Roundup of My Current Summer Favorites


Summer is synonymous with easy breezy outfits, sunshine, and endless days by the beach or poolside. As you all know, I absolutely love clean, safe beauty products and a capsule wardrobe. So, I thought I’d share six of my summer essentials:


Sunscreen, Sunscreen, and More Sunscreen


I am absolutely  loving Crunchi’s Sunlight Facial SPF 30. Its skincare-quality ingredients and non-nano zinc formula make it an amazing facial sunscreen. It blends beautifully without leaving any white cast, making it perfect both on its own and under makeup. Using clean sunscreen is important because it protects your skin from harmful UV rays without exposing you to potentially toxic chemicals. This sunscreen is a favorite not only because it performs exceptionally well, but also because it contains safe, natural ingredients that nourish and protect my skin.




As someone obsessed with aging gracefully and a huge fan of wearing sunscreen 365 days a year, bronzer is a must to warm up my skin. It gives me a healthy glow without sun damage. Crunchi is one of my current go-to brands for clean, non-toxic makeup. They have some of the strictest criteria for ingredient safety and third-party testing I’ve come across. I love their Solarise Bronzing Duo. All their makeup is talc-free and third-party tested for contaminants. The two-shade pan allows for customizable color combining, which I absolutely adore.


Self Tanner


I’m not one to tan intentionally, but I do love a hint of color. Beauty by Earth is my go-to for non-toxic tanning products. I’ve used both the tanning lotion and tanning foam, but the tanning foam is a little easier to apply. I like the Fair to Medium shade for a subtle hint of color on my legs, but you could go for the Medium to Dark shade for a deeper color.


Capsule Wardrobe


I love effortless dressing and am a huge believer in having a capsule wardrobe. I keep things simple color-wise so I can mix and match easily. Capsule dressing not only saves time and reduces decision fatigue, but it also helps in maintaining a clutter-free closet and promotes mindful consumption. This season, I’ve added a few key pieces, one fun bag, and a couple of new pairs of shoes. You can check out my entire summer capsule wardrobe HERE.


The Best Hat


Literally, this hat is called The Best Hat, and it really is. It's my go-to for sun protection and style.




As a jewelry designer, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention my current go-to pieces. During the summer, I like to keep things simple and water-resistant by wearing sterling silver and 14k gold-fill. Both metals are incredibly durable. While I wouldn’t recommend wearing any jewelry daily in a swimming pool, both metals generally hold up very well at the pool and beach. Right now, my favorite look is layering Cabine’s Full Circle Necklace with the Endless Love necklace. I love how they look together and, as I said, they are easy, breezy, and effortless, perfectly complementing everything I’m wearing.


These are the items I’m currently loving this summer. I hope they inspire you to find your own summer favorites and enjoy the season to the fullest!
