Wednesday Wants

Today being the 4th of July, I can’t help but think of everything I love about summer. I recently re-discovered Bain de Soleil, a warm weather staple of my youth. Opening that tube and smelling that unique orange gel for the first time in years, immediately transported me back to all my favorite beaches and pool side patios. Nowadays, I’m sporting the spf 30 version, (back in the day this wasn’t an issue). Inspired by this retro-chic sunscreen and all things quintessentially summer this Independence day,  stylish sunny day essentials are all on my “want” list right now. Happy Fourth of July!
