Happy Friday beauties! Today I wanted to share some of my favorite summer staples! Everyone is so ready to jump seasons, but in California it is going to be sunny and 75 for at least another month. So don't get too eager to jump ship, because you know all you basic fall bitches will be missing that warm sunshine and bright colors in no time.

BEAUTY: Every summer has a story, and it should have an equally great scent too! Picture it. > Twenty years from now, you pick up your Kate Spade perfume, give it a sniff and it takes you right back to 2015 on the beach in Mexico. Am I right?? Our noses can have aversions, which are basically memories in relation to smell or taste. The moral of my story is that I think every woman should have a summer scent that will take them back to those perfect moments frozen in time. This perfume will never disappoint with it's aromas of linden blossom, jasmine and gardenia. SWOON!

When OPI introduced their Hawaii Collection of colors, I jumped for joy (well not actually, that would be embarrassing). But in all seriousness, the 12 colors that are included in this line are so perfect for summer! My favorites include "That's Hula-rious", "Lost My Bikini in Molokini", and "Do You Take Lei Away". If you're not already sold on these colors, the names will definitely seal the deal.

Since we are all secretly obsessed with Kylie Jenner, I wanted to discuss her lipstick choices. Now that the cat's out of the bag, we all know it wasn't just good lipliner tricks that brought her the famous pouty lip... But, I have good news! You can achieve a "similar" looks with the right liner and lipstick. Kylie loves her neutral colors lined with a darker pink liner AKA WHIRL. See my 5 steps to Kylie below--

KYLIE JENNER LIP DUPE:

  1. Carefully over line your upper and lower lip with Mac's famous "Whirl" liner. Make sure to start your liner around where your actual outer lip ends. 
  2. Then repeat drawing the line right above that until you get the fullness you are looking for. 
  3. Once you have finished lining the outside, carefully draw in just the corners of your lip with the liner. 
  4. Now comes the lipstick. Add Cherish  or Brave to the parts of your lip that you haven't added liner to.
  5. Finish the look off with a dab of "Prrr" lipglass right in the center of your lower lip. *Don't forget to smack your lips together to give your entire look an icy shimmer.
SHOES: Who doesn't love a good razzle dazzle pair of shoes. Sole Society's "Gemma" flats have the perfect pop of bling, without being over the top. To make it even better, I linked a pair that are on sale for only $40!!

When Dolce Vita came out with their "Nakita" wedge, I think the world might have stopped (or the internet broke or something). Can we say perfection. I have them in black, which I think are just as great and can double for a night out on the town.

ACCESSORIES: If you can't tell, I'm loving the two finger rings right now. They are kind of amazing and this Valou one does not disappoint. My friend was wearing it one day, and I literally stopped her mid sentence to ask where she got her ring from. While I was linking the silver one, I also stumbled across this little turquoise number. I wish I had never seen it b/c it is WAY too cute not to buy. 

Add a little boho glam in your life with the RM "Fringe Mini Mac" crossbody bag. I love the black version and the cognac color one the most. Decisions, decisions...
