The Terah Tote comes in Coffee Bean, Flamingo and Sand Dollar and can be found at Elaine Turner.
Eric Javits Straw Hat
It is essential to wear a hat during summertime, and we love the quality, texture, and shape of Eric Javits hats.

These tanks from Heather just might be the tank of the summer! They are super soft but are made from modal — a semi-synthetic cellulose fabric — so they have a great amount of stretch.

Ninja Ultima Blender
I have always wanted a Vitamix, but I couldn’t get past the $400+ price tag. After some research, I found the Ninja blender. With power and blending speeds comparable to the Vitamix, and a much lower price tag (around $200), I was sold. The bonus is the ability to individually blend smoothies. The Ninja Ultima comes with three individual to-go cups with lids. To blend individual smoothies, all you do is snap on the individual blade attachment. That means I can make one smoothie for myself and another for our daughter, and my husband can make his own, all without having to wash the blender! The Ninja Ultima is available at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target. www.ninjakitchen.com
Bauble Necklace from Kayce Hughes
An easy, care-free necklace from Kayce Hughes! This bauble necklace comes in the perfect shade of summer green, making it easy to pair with multiple outfits without a lot of thought. $32 at Kayce Hughes on the Westside.
