Summer Must Haves

I once heard someone say that anyone who tells you summer is their favorite season is lying… Well call me a liar then because summer is my JAM! We spend our entire summer outside and in the water. Whether it’s the pool, boating, or playing in the backyard, we live to be outside! I’ve compiled a list of my summer must haves!

Coral Reef Swim

For years I have struggled finding a swimsuit I feel good in. This year I went out on a whim and ordered some swimsuits from Coral Reef Swim. I loved them so much that I reached out to them to get a discount code for you! You can use the code “MCCALL” for 10% off! My favorite top is the Adventurer Top and my two favorite bottoms are the Bali Reversible Bottoms and the At the Beach Bottoms. I am 5’9″ and 200lbs. I wear an XL in all the styles of bottoms and a large in all the tops but could probably wear a medium in some of the styles as well. I will be living in these swimsuits all summer! They are for sure a summer must have!

Geometry Beach Towels

To say I’m OBSESSED is an understatement! I have been using Geometry hand towels in my kitchen for quite awhile and when they launched their beach towels I knew I was going to love them. They sold out fast at their first launch and have just re-launched for their second time. Don’t miss out! They are so thin which makes them fold up easy to fit in a beach bag. They absorb water super well, are soft, and are huge! Use the code “MCCALLH15” for a discount.

XL Beach Bag

I finally found a beach bag to fit everything I need and want in it! I can fit towels for our whole family, snacks, sunscreen, sunglasses, and all the dang things in this bag. Let’s be honest though, my Geometry Beach Towels fold up so small that it definitely helps!

Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag

The best on the go bag! It’s been on my wishlist forever and after borrowing one for my recent Disneyland trip I was SOLD! And guess what?! It’s only $38! During the summer I’m constantly switching from the diaper bag to the beach bag and everything in between. Having a place where my keys, wallet, phone and everything can just stay is exactly what I need. I am ready to get my Everywhere Belt Bag!

Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo

I have used this dry shampoo for YEARS! Every so often I try a new one just to see if I like it and I immediately go back to my Batiste Tropical! It works so well on my hair. It is made for blonde hair. When I had dark hair I primarily used the Batiste Dark & Deep brown. I will say that even though I liked it, I don’t think it worked as well for me as the blonde one works. Why is dry shampoo on my summer faves? I mean let’s be honest, I won’t be doing my hair much throughout the summer. I’ll be too busy hangin’ at the pool and chillin’ on the boat! I need some good dry shampoo so I don’t look totally gross all the time!

Neck Fan

I gave this neck fan to my mom for Mother’s Day. She is already wearing it every day at Pickle Ball and plans to wear it to the pool as well! If you are one to have heat flashes or just want something to keep you cool during the hot summer days outside with the kids, then this is for you!

Portable Charger

I already use this portable charger most days and already know I’m going to be needing it nonstop through the summer! It charges my phone so dang fast and has a carrying case for it to stay in. This is a must for me while I’m on the go all summer.

Stroller Wagon

I have a stroller… I have a wagon… it’s time to get the best of both worlds: A STROLLER WAGON! I have been wanting a wagon that I can push rather than pull. Let’s make life easier on us moms lugging the kids all over the dang place! Throw everything in the wagon with the kids and push! My husband knows this has been on my wishlist for a LONG TIME. It’s time to get it!

Kiava Biker Shorts

The most durable biker shorts I’ve found with super deep pockets! I’ve been wearing Kiava’s biker shorts and leggings for a year now and they’re all I want to wear! Use code “FITANDWELL” for a discount.

I finally embraced the jumpsuit trend and I am here for it! Cents of Style constantly has deals on theirs and you can stack my code “MCCALL” on top of it for an additional 20% off! I have 4 jumpsuits from Cents of Style so far and can’t wait to get more! I will be living in jumpsuits throughout the summer!

Red Aspen Nail Dashes

I’ve always loved having my nails done but didn’t ever take the time to go to get them done. Red Aspen totally changed things for me! I’ve been using these nail dashes for a little over a year now and it’s rare for me to be seen without them on my nails! They are $12-$16 for a 2 week manicure. They have so many amazing styles for summer and I’ve already stocked up with so many! Get yours here!

Alright alright alright… how’s my list? I’m sure there is a lot more I could add but this is what I’m starting with! Tell me your summer accessories below so I can add them to my list!
