summer wish-list

I think summer is finally on it's way here in Alaska...and I've had my eye on a few things that would make the warmer months just a little bit better. Some things I'll probably just wish for and some things I actually need and will probably go pick up this week.

Sephora Collection Tinted self-tanning body mist
formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan
Most people need self-tanners during the winter, but I actually need it more in the summer months. I don't like to worry about burning or trying to tan from the actual sun because I'm just so sensitive to it, so I slather on the SPF 30 all the time when I'm outside. But I don't want to shock people with my pasty skin and I love how a good self-tanner evens out blotchiness too. 

butter LONDON 3 Free Nail Lacquer in macbeth - orangey coral and slapper - truly teal
formulated without phthalates, sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, GMOs, and triclosan. 
These two colors are just gorgeous and bright and very summery to me. The butter formula works really well too and always seem to last at least five days with a good top coat. 

Henley Maxi Dress from Gap in coral
So comfy looking and I love the henley style versus all the other more boring maxi's...not sure if I'll actually get it, but I will probably at least go try it on and maybe wait for it to go on sale!

Tabbie T-strap sandals from J.Crew
these simple sandals are high quality and go with nearly anything from shorts to skinnies to maxis.
I really need to get a pair, but the cheapskate in me makes me want to just wear my birkenstock gizehs all the time instead.

<<< FOR RIGGS >>>

K-Way Jacket for J.Crew
Love this little colorblock windbreaker and in Alaska windbreakers are a must.
This one is just 'so Riggs' to me, maybe it will go on sale or there will be a good discount
code so I can get it for him!
kids cord & leather bracelet from J.Crew
So cute, Riggs definitely needs one of these! Or maybe two or three in the other colors.
I love little accessories like this for toddlers, they are just ridiculously cute!

Tretorn 'Jolly' boots - on sale for the Nordstrom's Half-Yearly sale
I am definitely going to pick these up for Riggs this summer. He spends so much time outside
and his little leather slippers aren't going to cut it anymore now that he can explore so much!

Teepee play tent from Land of Nod
After playing out in the rain, it would be nice for Riggs to be able to dry off, put on some cozy clothes, and snuggle up in his Teepee to 'read' some good books. I'm in love with this Teepee and am seriously considering ordering it. I just wish his room was a little bit bigger to squeeze it in!

What's on your summer wish list (other than lots of sun and warm temperatures?)
