Summer is fast approaching! I cannot believe that it’s already the end of May. Even with quarantine, this year is flying by. I’m so excited for summer and the warmer weather. I’m hoping that Covid-19 will be under control and we can safely spend some time outdoors and with our loved ones. With that in my mind, I’m rounding up the best and most amazing summer essentials that are all from Amazon! I am in love with these items and I love that we don’t need to leave the house to get them! Amazon Prime is literally the best thing ever!
You can’t go to the beach without a hat. It’s a non-negotiable summer essential in my book! This wide brim straw hat is very similar to a popular one from Nordstrom (I have this one) but at a fraction of the cost. It has great reviews! Straw hats are not only for the beach though; I love the look of them with midi dresses or cute shorts.
Create your own magical and romantic date night in your backyard or a deserted beach with a beautiful picnic basket! How cool is that idea? The picnic basket comes with an insulated compartment so you can bring either hot or cold food items and enjoy them outside. For the perfect date night, I would also bring a cozy blanket or large towel, flowers and speaker for music.
Studded Sandals and Wedges
Studded shoes are so popular for summer 2020. Amazon has a ton of different options to choose from. I really love the clear studded sandals from Jessica Simpson and these gorgeous Ash ones. They are so beautiful and I have my eyes on them! I am also in love with these gorgeous BCBG black studded espadrille wedges. They are stunning and also come in a beautiful gold color.
Rattan Straw Earrings
How adorable are these rattan straw dangle earrings? They pair perfectly with a straw rattan bag and summer midi dresses. You can purchase one pair individually for less than $10 (here and here) or a whole set of 9 different pairs (here) for less than $25.
Colorful Statement Earrings
These statement colored earrings are absolutely perfect for summer and so fun! They come in three different colors – blue, pink and yellow. They are lightweight, ornate and absolutely gorgeous! I would pair them with a white top or a white summer dress for the perfect summer outfit!
Oversized Cateye Sunglasses
Typically, I like to invest in classic sunglasses as I know they will last a long time and never go out of style. I have had these Gucci black cat eye sunglasses for years! However, I also like to purchase some cheaper alternatives that are more trendy each summer. I have these oversized cateye sunglasses that I keep in my car! They are so chic!
Powder SPF is life changing if you like to wear makeup in the summer all day long. You can reapply it over your makeup and not only does it blot any oily skin, it also protects it from the sun! I like the Ilia brand as it is vegan and cruelty free. The mineral powder SPF from DermaE is also a really good option!
These clear bags are perfect for stadiums, but since large gatherings are most likley not going to be allowed for a long time now, I think these clear pouches would be perfect to protect your items from sand when you’re at the beach!
Coconut Milk Soak Bath
It’s so important to keep our skin hydrated and soft all year long, especially in the summer when our skin is more exposed to the sun’s rays. This Herbivore Coconut Milk Soak Bath leaves your skin feeling silky soft and smooth. It has a beautiful coconut and natural vanilla scent. The best part is that it’s vegan!
Two Piece Sets
Two piece sets are so in and they are adorable! They are perfect for date night, the beach or any other summer event. I love this striped two piece set and would pair it with a black straw bag, black espadrille wedges and dainty jewelry for the perfect summer date night outfit. This one with fringe trim is also so adorable! I also love this one – the bow tie detail is so pretty!
Classic One-Piece Swimsuits
Tumbler with Lid
This wine tumbler with lid is perfect for making your beverages stay cold during the hot summer months. It’s great if you’re always on the go, for outdoor parties and the beach! I also love the gold marble pattern – it’s so pretty!
Leopard Print Beach Towel
Revitalizing 3-in-1 Leave-in Hair Conditioner Spray
If you’re going to spend a lot of time outside this summer and in the pool or beach, this Sun Bum Revitalizing Conditioner Spray is for you! It will help to protect your hair from the sun and chlorinated water. It also helps to detangle and condition your hair. I love that this brand is vegan and cruelty free.
Rattan bags are still so popular for summer 2020. This adorable straw beach bag would be perfect for the beach or paired with midi dresses. The bow detail is so adorable and I haven’t seen many with black details. I also love the polka dot detail on this one. Both are under $25!
