Summer Favorites

It feels like my summer vacation just started, with all the #hustle of the big city, but in reality, I've been in PA/NJ/NY for about a month now! This summer has been odd, in the sense that I'm splitting my weeks in half - half in Manhattan and half at home in Pennsylvania.

I'm looking forward to a beach vacation in two weeks, but until then, here are a few of the things I've been enjoying thus far this summer...


A little bit of EOS to keep my lips from getting too dry in the summer sun (the lemon drop version has SPF, too!) A little bit of Neutrogena sunscreen to protect my whiter-than-white skin.  This Vera Bradley card case to hold my NJ Transit tickets and MetroCard.  An ENO Hammock and Chacos for my relaxing weekends at home in PA.  My favorite glass Lifefactory bottle for staying hydrated and reducing waste.  A few pairs of J. Crew's trusty chino shorts to throw on with a button down, t-shirt, or polo, depending on the occasion.  Oh, and I couldn't forget my favorite summer snack - strawberries!  Perfect for eating alone or mixing into a big fruit salad with raspberries, blueberries, and bananas.

What have you been loving so far this summer?



  1. I love Vera Card Holders, I have one for school to keep my i.d. in because we need our i.d. for everything! I'm currently using a kate spade wristlet for my summer commute!
    Chino shorts are my favorite also, I have 3 pair and am looking for more!
    Love your list!

  2. I LOVE the Neutrogena dry-touch lotion. It's the only one that doesn't make my face feel all greasy!

  3. Oh how I miss my trusty 'ole Vera card holder! If you are looking for a more "grown up" update, you should check out the Stella & Dot Tech Wallet - there is even a slot in the middle for your iPhone 5. I'm obsessed with mine!

  4. I LOVE my EOS lip balm! It is my favorite thing during the dry summer heat.


  5. Great List!! I won't be going anywhere this summer without my eos lip balm, chacos, sunscreen or eno!!
    Happy Summer!
