Summer is here and in full swing!
The TFT Gals share some of their 2013 Summer Essentials – check out what’s on their must have list!
TFT can often be found in LBI throughout the year planning many weddings and events, but every year my family and I make a trip to the island to enjoy some quality beach time. This year will be a bit different as Hurricane Sandy has taken a toll on the island and surrounding beach areas. Though a lot of effort and clean up has taken place, there is still a lot of work to do. I will be carrying this beach bag around to help support the rebuilding of the Jersey Shore.
Of course one of my essentials would have to include footwear. These comfy suede flat sandals from Sam Edelman can dress up any outfit- day or night.
I am all about the site SendTheTrend.com. This site has EVERYTHING organized by trend, brand, or category. Register to save your favorite products and to receive updates. Right now, I am deciding on a colorful bib necklace that will dress up any plain tank in the summer.
Never in the past did I think of this as a “Summer Essential” until this past year, but what would summer be without the Jersey Shore!? It was devastating to see images of a place where many of us share so many memories, destroyed. Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant, LBI … I would get goosebumps when going over the Raritan Bridge because I knew that we were almost there … At Seaside as a kid, I knew that if I could not find my parents, I should meet them at the big lemon in the center of the boardwalk … my husband even proposed to me at the Jersey Shore!
I have been tracking the rebuilding progress of Seaside Heights online throughout the year at Earth Cam. I am anxious to get back and share the history with my daughters so they can make their own memories “down the shore.”
Trish McEvoy Advanced Protective Shield Moisturizer with 40 SPF- Great for everyday when running around for events so I am never without a sunscreen. I love Trish products because they are so focused on healthy skin, and always feel great on!
Ray Bans are my go to brand of shade! Their classic aviator style is timeless and looks great with just about any outfit. Great for a beach day or just running errands.
For my naturally curly hair after a fun family day at the beach, I like to use Carol’s Daughter’s products. Their quality natural hair and skin care products are fantastic for any type of hair/skin.
A cool night with this linen bomber jacket from Olivia Moon goes perfectly with a fun dress or a cute romper!
I am loving the new summer 2013 Essie colors – in particular, Naughty Nautical! How could I possibly go to the beach without having bright vibrant Essie nails?
Don’t forget to relax! With all the craziness of running around from events, BBQ to BBQ and in and out of the pool – I’m going to make sure I remember to breathe and relax this summer with some yoga.
My new obsession is that pop of lip color! This summer I will be rocking some fun colors from MAC’s lip glass line – in particular this Viva Glam shade by Nicki Minaj.
This summer wedges are a must have! They are comfy and practical for walking along the boardwalk (don’t you hate when your heels get stuck in there!). I love my black and white wedges from Michael Kors which will be making many appearances this season.
