Girl Chat Link Up...Summer Staples

Hello Girls!

Hope everyone is having a GREAT week so far!

Today I am linking up with Danielle , Emily , Lindsay , Lizzie , and Sierra for "Girl Chat"....and today we are chatting all about our favorite summer staple items!  

Living in the South I feel like it is pretty much summer all the time...and I am not going to lie...I miss the season from up North.  Now, I am not saying I want to be snowed in 3 months a year, but I definitely miss cold winter days and seeing snow...and not like the pathetic snow falls that fall in NC.

As much as I miss wearing my UGGS, I have to say I am a flip flop girl!

The Tory Burch Miller sandal is hands down my FAVORITE...and definitely my #1 summer staple item.  I have them in the sand patent (pictured above), the black patent and the gold.  They are definitely a bit pricey for a flip flop, but I feel they are totally worth it.  I have had my sand colored pair for 5 years now, and I still wear them and they look great!  I wear them all the time, dressed up, dressed down, they are just a great shoe to have.

I have talked about these basic flip flops many times before...every few years I grab a new pair.  They are great for the beach, around the pool, to run errands...I wear mine constantly!

Graphic tees are another summer staple for me!  There are so super cute graphic tees out there right can check out all my favorites here .

Living in a warmer climate, and having a pool in our backyard, bathing suits and cover ups are also summer staples!  I have never been one to spend a lot of money on a bathing suit, so all my suits come from Target, and I love them!  They are cute and don't break the bank.  Most of my cover ups are also from Target!

I have this swim top in the navy stripe and the black stripe...simple but cute.

I wear this green bottom with both tops....

and these yellow ones also...I just mix and match them all!

I have talked a million times before about my favorite nail polish..and still a year later OPI Let's Be Friends is still my favorite...especially for summer!  It is the perfect mix of pink and white!  If you are looking for a great summer polish you have to check it out!

We are BIG YETI fans over here...and this colster is a staple for us for sure.  We have two of the stainless ones, and then I have this pretty sea foam one and Mark has a matte black one.  We don't only use these during the summer, we literally use them every single day.  It keeps our canned drinks cold for HOURS!  We can leave it in the hot car, and hours later, our beverage is still ice cold.  I would recommend any YETI product for anyone who is planning on being outdoors in the heat this summer!  The products are a bit pricey, but in our opinion, they are totally worth it!  

So there are some of my summer must haves!  Can't wait to read what is on everyone's must have list this summer!  

Thanks for stopping by today!
