JUNE is the beginning of all things summer.
Trips to the beach with a good book require comfortable and unique swimwear:
I adore this hand knitted bikini top from Hook and Needles!
I love June because it's the tail end of spring, it's getting warmer but the sweet flowers and gentle breeze of spring are still lingering and that makes this dress from Shop Sign Here the perfect end of spring/beginning of summer look.
It is comfortable, light weight, and adorable.
I think it goes without saying but TSHIRTS are a staple in the summer wardrobe.
Easy to throw on during a lazy day.
I adore pretty much ALL shirts by Flybird Apparel.
They won't break the bank and they will have you making a statement others with remember.
A few other t-shirt brands you'll love:
Mom Shirt Co. (No you don't have to be a mom to rock these ;)
Clothe Your Neighbor As Yourself (Support a great cause, make a wonderful message and get ethically made products) :
Femme Boutique Boston:
The Bee and the Fox
Last but certainly not least, is this super fun truckers hat by The Foxy Llamas that is a great way to shield your face from the sun as you hang out by the river or a backyard BBQ:
I am a huge fan of treating our bodies as the holy works of art that they are, and that means using beauty products that aren't full of toxic chemicals.
The problem is often finding natural products that truly work and don't charge you an arm and a leg.
And let me tell you Butter Me Up Organics is the natural beauty company that fits the bill.
Their deodorant is aluminum free, and leaves you smelling fresh al day.
Their sunblock is paraben free and keeps this whitey from turning into a lobster.
The list goes on, their product is TOP notch.
Smelling good is important, especially during sweaty summer days and these natural perfumes really do the trick:
MONTA (roll ons made of your favorite essential oils)
Smoke Perfume (made to be used as aromatherapy for yourself and those around you)
Next up we have this wonderful handweaved tapestry that sits right above my bed by Rustic Sage Designs:
