Summer must-haves

I made a pinboard of the things I'm finding I can't live without this summer (with a few wish-list items thrown in).
Lightweight jacket

I got this jacket in gray earlier this year. It was on sale, so I picked it up on a whim, not really knowing if I would get much use out of it. I've ended up wearing it almost every day. It dresses up or down equally well - I had thought of it as more of a casual jacket, but was surprised to see how chic it looked over a dress.

I am not really a makeup person, mostly because I'm lazy. I love a tinted lip gloss because I can smear some on without worrying too much about getting it perfect, and it still gives me that hint of color to brighten up my face. Plus, it easily doubles as blush. The Cherry shade is great for me because it comes across as somewhere right in between pink and red, so I feel like I can wear it with any outfit.

My husband calls these my "mom shoes," although I corrected him and said  they're really grandma shoes. I think I have the exact same pair (in black) that my grandma used to wear every summer. Now I know why  - they're comfy and cool, and to my eye, they look just a little bit more polished/feminine than sneakers.
