Part two of my June Favorites relate more to things that aren’t necessarily beauty focused – which was super fun to do for me! (If you’re interested in my beauty bits check out yesterday’s post) Lately I’ve been loving things that are either white or super bright for the warmer months. The best part of Summer is that there’s rarely a shade that looks bad on tanned skin. It’s usually difficult for me to pull off white but add in some sun and everything just looks so crisp.
Today’s favorites are the ones that I’m most excited about in the non-beauty department. So fresh and so clean clean…
Rhinestone Earcuff Set Ear cuffs are the new ear jackets for me. I think they’re super edgy, and can add a fun element to any outfit. I snagged this one from Forever21 – and it actually came in a pair (although I’d never wear them both at the same time). The best part is that the cuff is less than $6 and comes in both gold and silver – i’m partial to gold jewelry so my choice was obvious. The only downside is that the cuff clasp can hurt your ear after a while, but if it’s for the short term (or you have a high pain tolerance) it’s perfect!
Compartes Mayan Milk Chocolate This stuff. Yup, it’s fantastic. I’ve seen this brand all over but finally picked one up when I was at Salt and Sundry last weekend. The bright packaging is right up my alley and I almost didn’t want to eat it, since it was so pretty. Yeah, I’m glad I did. It’s a super smooth milk chocolate and the bitty triangle cuts are perfect for cravings – or if ya know, you wanna eat the entire thing.
Fitbit Zip I’ve been trying to clip this bad boy on regularly and have usually been failing at it – until recently. I love the Fitbit brand because their pieces are super easy to wear and just keep the small voice in the back of your head telling you to ‘move’. It’s so nice putting a number to your day and seeing it jump up after a hardcore spin class. A lot of my friends have the bracelets, but I wanted something more subtle – and the Zip is perfect.
Diptyque “Mimosa” Candle I’m a “Roses” girl all the way, but when I got this candle in a giveaway from some blogger friends I may have been swayed a bit. The “Mimosa” fragrance is perfect for summer: light, fresh, and clean. I’ve been lighting this every time I get ready in the morning, and before I take my shower at night, to relax a bit and enjoy the scent.
Vans Slip-On Sneakers Slip ons have been my savior this summer. I now walk about 15 minutes to and from the metro, on a slight hill each day (yes, up the hill both ways). As much as I want to wear my cute platforms they’re just not practical. Nothing is cute about falling flat on your face. Vans was one of my favorite brands growing up so I love the fact that I’m jumping back into them. This perforated gives the perfect bit of air for the hot days, and the white color looks so nice with tanned feet. Now lets see how long I can keep them this white…
