The Edit

Raise your hand if you can’t believe it’s almost July! Luckily we have a ton of summer staples to keep you fully prepped for the rest of the summer, from the chicest backpack to the best palette for a lit-from-within glow. Keep reading to see what you’ll need to pick up this weekend…

LC Lauren Conrad bailee o-ring backpack

1. LC Lauren Conrad Bailee O-Ring Backpack, $69
My purse of choice lately is the Bailee O-Ring backpack from my latest LC Lauren Conrad collection. It’s the ultimate travel buddy and I’ve been taking it on all of my recent trips. Plus, you can opt to wear it as a purse instead of a backpack! –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

ariel gordon jewelry signet dog tag necklace

2. Ariel Gordon Signet Dog Tag Necklace, $640
Most of my everyday jewelry has a special meaning. I’ve been wearing this monogrammed Signet Dog Tag necklace from Ariel Gordon layered with some of my other special pieces. This is a bit of an investment, but it’s definitely something you’ll have forever. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

The Little Market wedding gift in a box

3. The Little Market Wedding Gift Box, $80
With wedding season in full swing, this gift box from The Little Market has become my go-to present for my newly married friends. It comes with a really beautiful picture frame, a sweet little dish and a custom candle. My favorite part is that you can choose different custom labels for the candle, and also different scents. It’s the perfect way to celebrate a newly married couple’s love, while supporting women artisans and shopping for a cause. –Rachel, Managing Editor

imperfect produce review via

4. Imperfect Produce
I just signed up for this delivery service last week and I already love it. I never realized how much produce goes to waste just because they don’t meet store standards, and I was actually shocked at how “perfect” most of the produce was that was delivered to me! Instead of letting these slightly imperfect fruits and vegetables go to waste, Imperfect Produce packs up a box of fresh produce (which you can select the week before so you get what you want) and sends it right to your door every week (or every other week if you choose). It’s surprisingly affordable, and they try to deliver their products with as little waste as possible, so they’re not wrapped in any plastic or unnecessary packaging. Plus, I honestly feel like I’m rooting for the underdog somehow just by eating these fruits and veggies that didn’t get a chance to make it to center stage at the grocery store. Silly, I know, but there’s something charming about these imperfect little guys! –Tessa, Associate Editor

target simple black slides

5. Target A New Day Jozie Slide Sandal, $12.99
File this under the best $12 I’ve ever spent. These versatile slides that I just bought from Target are so comfortable and I easily wear them with just about anything. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to buy a classic black pair of sandals, but I’m hooked. –Jessi, Senior Editor

sugar paper gift journal

sugar paper gift journal

6. Sugar Paper The Gift Journal, $48
I received this Sugar Paper wedding gift journal as an engagement gift from a friend and I can’t even begin to tell you how useful it has been. It provides such a nice way to keep record all of the special gifts my fiancé and I have been receiving from our dear family and friends, and next to each entry is a little box to tick off once we’ve sent a thank you note. And, it will be so special to look back years from now and remember the thoughtful gifts our family and friends gave us to help start our life together. –Allison, Managing Editor

reformation joplin tee

7. Reformation Joplin Tee, $28
Ok, how cute is this t-shirt from Reformation (which is now sold at Nordstrom!!)? A couple pasta loving friends and I started a pasta dinner club a few months ago (if anyone has any recommendations for amazing restaurants in L.A. that have the best pasta, let me know!), and these Cacio e Pepe shirts just became the official t-shirt of our club. Can’t wait to wear it to our next dinner! –Rachel, Managing Editor

LC Lauren Conrad gabby sheer window curtains

8. LC Lauren Conrad Gabby Sheer Window Curtains, $29.99-$44.99
Curtains seriously have the power to transform a room and make any space feel light, bright, and breezy. Living in a rental, we were doomed with the ugliest plastic blinds everywhere and I’m thinking it’s about time we replace them with something prettier. I currently have my eye on these LC Lauren Conrad ones… I love the tie details at the top and I know the sheerness will keep things light in our little apartment. –Tessa, Associate Editor

Tarteist PRO glow highlight and contour palette

9. Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Highlight and Contour Palette, $45
When it comes to highlight and contour palettes, I always gravitate towards Tarte products. I recently ran out of my favorite one and decided to try out another from the same collection. If you’re looking for glowy summer skin, you should do yourself a favor and head to Sephora for this product. –Jessi, Senior Editor

1 second everyday app review via

10. 1 Second Everyday App, $4.99
For each of my two babies, we used this app to put together a video montage of one second a day during their first year of life. My younger babe turned one last week, so we just finished editing his video. It is the sweetest and most sentimental way to look back on his first year, and we can send the link around to all of our family and friends. I’ve also had friends use it for their own milestone birthdays, like the year before they turn 30. –Ilana, Managing Editor
