Summer is just getting started, so June is a great time to get those summer must-haves. Here’s a list of our SB FINDS for the season.
Scarves are the perfect fashion accessory for summer. Dandelion offers these multicolored, lightweight, ombré linen scarves in a variety of colors. Available for $42 at Dandelion. dandelionhome.com
After filling a big summer tote to the pool, a clutch is a perfect smaller option for dinner. Another great use is to keep the clutch in your big tote with essentials in it. This Clare Vivier one is a great, bright option. Available for $195 at Circe. www.circeswag.com
Who’s got the key to your heart? Whoever it may be, Scout has these key necklaces for that special someone. Available for $12 to $18 at Scout. www.scoutonmarket.com
Beach Bag Perfection
Each summer we set out to find the perfect poolside tote and this year Elaine Turner made things easy! The Terah Tote is a great size to fit all our summertime necessities. It’s big enough for a couple towels, flip flops, your book, sunscreen and more. Plus, it’s chic enough to use for other purposes than just the pool. The Terah Tote comes in Coffee Bean, Flamingo and Sand Dollar and can be found at Elaine Turner.
It’s summer, and these Indian Summer scented products will get you ready. These products from Moss Hill (soap, candle, lotion, linen spray, shower gel) are the perfect way to relax after a day of running around in the sun. Available in the $5-$16 price range from Moss Hill. www.mosshill.net
The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton Disclafani is a great book for reading by the pool or just about anywhere else (I personally could not put it down). It is definitely an adult novel with some unexpected twists and turns. Carmichael’s sums it up best: In the midst of the Great Depression, and a mysterious tragedy in her family, fifteen year old Thea Atwell is sent to an equestrian boarding school for Southern debutantes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Part scandalous love story, part heartbreaking family drama, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls is a major debut by a staggeringly gifted new writer. Available at Carmichael’s Bookstore for $16. www.carmichaelsbookstore.com
When is the last time your man bought a bathing suit? It’s time for a new one, I’m pretty sure. These are bright and fun, perfect for the water, by Southern Tide and Peter Millar. Southern Tide ones are $79.50, and Peter Millar versions are $85.00, available at The Fashion Post. www.thefashionpost.com
Time to show those legs, ladies. Now that it’s summer, it’s all about fun prints and shorter hemlines. These shorts from Clodhoppers are perfect for the warmer summer months. White eyelet are $78; blue check are $98. www.clodhoppers.com
This ethereal lace tunic is a perfect cover-up for summer. It covers everything but lets your swimsuit show at the same time. Available at J. McLaughlin for $195. www.jmclaughlin.com
Warmer temperatures go hand-in-hand with hosting dinner parties and cookouts at your home. This Juliska bamboo and toile dinnerware is a mix of two patterns that complement each other perfectly from Dover House & Mercantile. A five-piece place setting of the bamboo is $129. A five-piece place setting of the blue toile is $191. www.facebook.com
Gardening is a huge summer hobby, and every plant needs the perfect pot. It is a splurge, but this mango wood planter with a galvanized liner from Digs is simple, yet such a statement either inside or outside your house. Available for $650 from Digs. www.digshomeandgarden.com
Cookouts are sure to be on the calendar almost every weekend this summer. Presenting condiments for those hot dogs and burgers in these mustard jars from Clay & Cotton are a great way to give a more upscale feel to any cookout. You could also use them as vases for your summer flowers. Available for $11 each at Clay & Cotton. www.clayandcotton.com
What better way to relax on a summer night than by sitting on a deck with friends enjoying a glass of wine? These cork wine boxes from Cartwheels make for a great way to transport wine to any location or as a hostess gift. Available for $45 from Cartwheels. www.facebook.com
Summer style doesn’t stop with clothing. There are plenty of ways to personalize your home, like these stepping stones with local flavor. Available for $25 from Crescent Hill Trading Co. www.crescenthilltradingco.com
Wooden Serving Trays
Trays are a great way to easily transport items (think margaritas), and they are great centerpieces for any table. These wooden trays with rope handles will find a home in your home easily. The small tray is $38, the large is $56 at Barry Wooley Designs. www.barrywooley.com
This intricate, delicate, gold bowl looks priceless but definitely will not break the bank. Leave it empty or fill it with a favorite collection. Available for $75 at Work the Metal. www.workthemetal.com
