june crush list!

Summertime and the living {and loving} is easy...here are my crushes for June!

june 2014
1. model citizen I will forever recommend Josie Maran's Argan Oil products because they feel incredibly luxe; but at the moment I'm especially loving the Model Citizen Limited Edition line because they combine the amazing products and ingredients that Josie Maran is known for with super cute, summery packaging plus a donation of 10% of proceeds from each Model Citizen product sold to the Imagine Initiative, which works to support women's empowerment - and that's kind of irresistible. My top picks are the Model Citizen Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, Model Citizen Argan Cleansing Oil, and Model Citizen 100% Pure Argan Oil.

2. surf-inspired Despite the fact that I have lived in Southern California for more than 10 years, I am, sadly, not a surfer. I am, however, swimsuit obsessed; and I'm currently crushing on surf-inspired swimwear because it's undoubtedly cool - not to mention super sexy...in an athletic way. My top picks are Clover Canyon's Marble Party Bikini Top in Multi + Marble Party Bikini Bottoms in Multi {the exposed front zip is so Bond Girl}; Nanette Lepore's Sinaloa Stripe Rash Guard in Multi + Sinaloa Stripe Bikini Bottoms in Multi {the print is TDF. coincidence: it matches the Model Citizen packaging}; and SKYE & staghorn's The Rashie Top in Foil / Black + Siren Triangle Bikini in Palm {digging the club vibe of the long mesh sleeves}!

3. beachy waves Blake Lively made me obsessed with beachy waves during her Gossip Girl days; and my love for the style has most definitely not dissipated since the show went off the air. I adore the carefree, I'm-really-a-mermaid vibe they add to your look. And while I'll rock the beachy wave anytime of year; there's something about summertime that makes the style downright necessary. Three of my fave products for nailing the look? ALTERNA's BAMBOO BEACH Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray, L'Oreal Paris' Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, and Victoria's Secret's Beach Sexy Beach Hair Wave Spray.

4. bright bracelets Friendship bracelets were kind of my life when I was younger. I made hundreds every summer, and stacked countless on my wrists each day - they were my preteen style statement. Now I favor HiPANEMA's - specifically the Fluo Multi Bracelet in Blue Multi, and Sunset Bracelet in Silver Multi. They're like a grown-up, grand scale friendship bracelet with the ability to make you nostalgic for summer camp arts & crafts. Also pertinent...they make a fierce pairing with cutoff denim or bikinis on the beach!

5. mirrored sunnies Truth: Mirrored sunnies are to summer what s'mores are to bonfires...crucial. I love a pair with a colored frame and a bright orange / red / pink / yellow gradient lens; thus, my at-the-moment loves are Beach Riot's The Superior Sunglasses in Barbie, and Ray-Ban's Erika Velvet Sunglasses in Red. So fun, right?
