July marks the midway point of summer, when the season on display is at its best. From summer vacations and cookouts to swimming and socializing, make the most of this great time with these fantastic summer FINDS.
Turquoise is a perfect pairing with all summer clothes, adding a perfect pop of color against anything you wear. We especially love wearing our turquoise with white, denim and coral. These beauties are at cale & cole for $145.
These agate and tassel earrings at Revelry Boutique Gallery make a big statement and are 0h-so colorful and lightweight. These sell for $35 and look great with a summer sundress.
When you’re active in the summer, you needs simple earrings that won’t get in the way — and that you won’t worry about losing in the pool. These small geometric studs at Block Party Handmade Boutique on Frankfort Avenue are only $9 a pair and look great all summer long.
Another popular summer texture is cork, and this cute clutch at M.E. Modern Elegance is selling this simple neutral bag for $64. Carry it as a clutch or use the cute chain as a cross-body bag.
This refined raffia tote with a bamboo handle is both casual and elegant. Best of all, it snaps closed so that all of your valuables stay secured. Sold at J.McLaughlin for $155, this tote will hold all of your summer necessities.
Quay sunnies from Australia are super popular right now, not only for their great style but also because they are lightweight with a good price point. These range from $40 to $60 at Blu Boutique.
Remember when we sang the praises of the Oofos flip flops? Well … they have another shoe! The Oofos clog is out and can be worn year-round. These shoes are comfortable and have the support needed to relieve aching feet. Yes, wear them out, but come in the door, take off your work shoes and put these on. Your feet will thank you! They retail for $59.95 at Celebrations.
You can never have enough sandals in the summer. We had a hard time picking just one, so we are showing three, all sold at General Eccentric. From left, they are $18, $22 and $24 — so buying a pair will not break the bank.
What an ingenious way to use a platter! This one at Robin’s Nest Interiors is transformed into a menu by a dry erase marker. Next time you have dinner guests over — or even just a family dinner — simply write the menu on the platter. It’s a simple step that really dresses up the meal! This platter is $35.
This candle holder feels more like a lantern. The large, wooden holder accommodates a large candle and would look fantastic in the center of an outdoor dining table. It is sold at Fleur de Lis Interiors for $55.
Made from vintage bee molds, ornaments and frame remnants, Museum Bees are one-of-kind sculpture pieces at Trace Mayer Antiques that can hang alone or in a swarm. Most of the frames and pieces are from 1860 to 1880, and for only $55 each, it’s easy to start an impressive collection.
These fun, festive prints make these dishes perfect for summer (or any time really). Plates, small plates and bowls all make up this cute collection sold at the Urban Farmhouse Market. Plates are $19; small plates are $15; and bowls are $9.
Tray and coasters
While you’re in summer patio dining mode, check out this multi-colored tray and fun Jonathan Adler “Jet Set” ceramic coasters at Lee W. Robinson Company. The tray retails for $68 and the coasters for $48.
Nothing says a summer picnic like a gingham tablecloth! This one comes in navy and white or red and white at Digs Home and Garden for $38. Be sure to pair with some of their great outdoor dinnerware for a great meal outside.
Garden crate kit
What a great gift idea for your summer host: an all-in-one gardening kit — complete with gloves, seeds, a bag of soil, a Louisville Stoneware pot and a small shovel. It’s all boxed up and ready to go at Louisville Stoneware for $145.
Happy shopping … and enjoy your July!
