July was made for days by the pool, cookouts with friends and countless hours spent in the sunshine. It’s one of our favorite months of the year as it just has a laid-back and playful vibe. In that spirit, we’ve rounded up a few stylish and summery FINDS. From beautiful beachwear to staple pieces for the home, we bet you’ll find something you just have to have. Here are our July FINDS!


Pink crossbody purse

Nothing says “summer” quite like hot pink, and we love the shade of this on-trend color that’s captured in this stylish crossbody purse. It’s the perfect carryall for your essentials, and the hot pink color will absolutely complement your sunkissed tan. Find this, for $28.50, at Secondhand Rose.

Summer sunnies

Summer calls for a new pair of sunnies. We love this Maho Shades style, called Palm Beach Honey, for their light tortoiseshell color scheme, thick cat-eye frame and feminine flair. Find them, for $145, at Maho Shades.

Velvet pink slides

Yes, please! You simply can’t go wrong with a pair of comfy (and on-trend!) footwear that keeps you cool while adding the perfect touch of personality to any outfit. Don these slides for a girl’s night out, date night or family outing. Just don’t be surprised when every lady you meet is asking where she can purchase them for herself! Find these, for $56, at Chickadee Interiors.

Every bright and beautiful summer outfit deserves an equally vibrant accessory, and we’ve found the cutest wristlet that delivers. We’re loving this one for its beachy details, fun tassel and practical size. Pair it with any neutral outfit to add a pop of subtle, chic summer style. Find it for $155 at a’mano gifts.

Animal print and mosaic Fouta towel

A giant beach towel is something you’ll need all summer long, so you might as well find one that’s just as cute as it is functional! Not only is this one large enough to share, but it’s also SO soft and comfortable. Whether you’re at the pool, the lake or the beach, this vibrant towel will definitely be a hit with all your friends and family. Personalize your beach towel with a standard monogram up to 4” for an additional $11. Find this, for $62, at B.Bayer.

Summer hair care

While we love the summer sun, our hair certainly doesn’t. Hair care is important all year long, but with the added stress of the sun, humidity and salt water (or even worse, chlorine), it’s important to add a few more steps to your hair care routine. We’re loving the new summer line by Davines that protects hair from all the damage a day by the water can bring. Find this line, ranging from $24 to $29, at The Collective in Pepper Place.
