Unity Floral Cardigan

It seems silly to lust after a sweater in the height of the summer heat, but one look at this Unity Floral Cardigan from Ted Baker and all of my reason flew out the window. I was able to come up with half a dozen excuses to make the purchase; the evenings can get chilly, fall is just around the corner, the office is always cold because the AC is on full blast. And so on. The truth is that I'm a sucker for a feminine floral and I will gladly sweat a little so I can wear this structured pink cardi to work, or to weekend brunch with my sisters.

Coffee Conversation Heart Necklace

Coffee: everyone's one true love. Forget Tom, Keith, Dave or even your BFFs and wear an ode to the elixir of life around your neck a la the Coffee Conversation Heart Necklace by Dogeared. The tiny engraved heart-shaped pendent is dipped in gold and ready to help you remind everyone about your obsession with Joe.

Summer Pom Pom Straw Tote

At the start of the season, I aways have lofty goals re: getting to the beach on the weekends, but with the summer half over (NOOO!), I am kicking myself for not making it a priority. Especially since I recently ordered this adorable Summer Pom Pom Straw Tote, perfectly sized for carrying a beach towel, a fluffy read, sunscreen, and a bottle of water. I'm determined to not let it go to waste sitting in my coat closet—these poms deserve to be the envy of the beach! Watch out, Saturday, my cute new bag and I have plans to settle in at the seashore all day long!

Drybar 100 Proof Treatment Oil

Frizz: a curly-haired girl's mortal enemy. You spend years battling it, especially in humid weather, and use every weapon available to aid you in your crusade to eradicate it. The geniuses at Drybar have come to save the day. Their 100 Proof Treatment Oil is loaded with good stuff that tames hair into a manageable mane of silky waves. Add a few pumps of it when your hair is damp, concentrating on the ends, and watch it go to work. It adds a healthy shine and keeps strands looking smooth and silky. Success, at last!

Tortoise Hair Clip Set

While we're talking about healthy hair, can I make a case for the return of using hair clips over rubber bands? I mean, sure, clips don't help you achieve the perfect topknot, but they cause less breakage to your lovely locks. And with a fun set of clips like this Tortoise Hair Clip Set, sweeping up your hair into an easy twist or bun will look pretty and polished. Use the tinier clips to secure small sections of hair, or braided bangs to gussy up your look on the days when you want to leave the majority of your hair down but out of your face.
