Hey Perkins Rowe!
Summer is officially in full swing, which means longer days filled with fun in the sun. I am the first one to admit that I am never really prepared for the long days; which is why I have decided to have a Summer bag packed in my car with some Summer necessities.
As a mom, I feel like I always have the kids needs for the day covered, but I am riding the struggle bus when it comes to myself. So, what is in my Summer bag?
1. An insulated water bottle. This one I picked up from Charming Charlies and absolutely love the flower detail, but the saying on the side could not be more real. “mommin’ aint easy” Ha! It’s definitely not easy but 100% worth it.
2. Mirrored aviator sunglasses. These were a steal for only $16 at SHADES. SHADES offers some gorgeous designer sunglasses, which I have my eyes on a few pairs, but when out and about with the kids I need a pair that I don’t mind getting little finger prints all over. These are great!
3. SPF! I also picked this up at SHADES and I was so happy I spotted it before I bought my sunnies. As I am getting older I am quickly learning the importance of sunscreen. I never thought it was necessary, but wow! Probably the most important thing in my Summer bag after H20!
4. Flip Flops! Ok, this is something I don’t technically keep in my Summer bag, but I do keep them in my car. The Flip Flop Shop has some really great (and COMFORTABLE) flip flops for everyone in the family. I like to keep a pair in my car because you never know where we might end up on these long Summer days. Anything that includes getting wet is always at the top of my kids list.
One other thing I really wish I could keep in my Summer bag to snack on is a pop from Rock’N Pops! Have you had one yet? Wow! They are so delicious and they are perfect for these crazy hot days we have been having.
