With summertime quickly coming to an end, it is time to catch last minute rays. On a recent trip to Northern Michigan, I got to relax by the lake while sporting my favorite sun hat saying "Do Not Disturb". I got this from TJ Maxx for $12.99 - score! - but haven't been able to find any online that aren't $500 except for a gorgeous custom hat on Etsy for $55. My dress is the Everglades Dress from Lovers + Friends - $148 - but if you like it you need to move quick cause it is selling out fast!
When relaxing by the water I made sure to bring along my kombucha - a daily necessity for me - my Stream2Sea - an environmentally friendly sunscreen - and a great book. I highly recommend Business Boutique by Christy Wright - $24.99 for any women who are even thinking about starting their own business because it is everything you need and more! If reading isn't your thing, her podcasts are also a great tool to take advantage of. Lastly, I brought with me a gorgeous Riviera Towel - $38. These Turkish towels are great for travel and my favorite part about them is that with every purchase a portion of the sales are donated to ocean nonprofit organizations.
