The Edit

Is it just us or is summer flying by? From trying a new outdoor yoga class to finding the perfect drive-in movie snack, our picks this week will help you max out the rest of the season. Our July essentials are right this way…

LC Lauren Conrad blush mirrored sunnies

1. LC Lauren Conrad Arianna 50mm Round Mirrored Sunglasses, $30
If you know me, you know how often I swap out my sunnies. These mirrored lenses and clear frames in my LC Lauren Conrad collection are a fun option for summer. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

Zara leather crossover sandals

2. Zara Leather Crossover Sandals, $45.90
I’m a big fan of neutral sandals that can be worn with pretty much everything. These slides from Zara are cute and versatile and I don’t have to think twice before stepping out in them. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

LC Lauren Conrad dinosaur floral passport case and luggage tag

3. LC Lauren Conrad Dinosaur & Floral Passport Case & Luggage Tag Set, $30
There’s something so sweet about this floral & dinosaur print passport case and luggage tag set! I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately, so having some cute accessories to take with me on my travels is a must. –Rachel, Managing Editor

alo yoga flow thermal top

4. Alo Yoga Flow Tank Thermal, $44
I’ve mentioned my love for Alo Yoga’s workout tops before, and I’m always browsing through their new arrivals whenever I need a fresh new exercise outfit. My latest favorite is their Flow Tank Thermal, which is soft and lightweight, comes in super cute colors (I ordered it in “Nectar” and “Pistachio”), and is perfect for everything from yoga to cross training. It’s a cropped fit, so I recommend going up a size if you want a little more length in the midriff area. –Allison, Managing Editor

Forever21 matching bra and leggings set

5. Forever21 Tropical Floral Sports Bra, $14.90 and Tropical Floral Leggings, $19.90
Why is it that I feel way more productive in my workouts when I have cute gear? I love everything pink and floral, so I instantly gravitated to this two-piece set. I’ve been buying active wear from Forever21 for quite some time and I’ve never been disappointed! –Jessi, Senior Editor

The Little Market wooden beaded bowls

6. The Little Market Wooden Beaded Bowls, $48
Excuse me while I go order all three variations of these beautiful wooden and beaded bowls from The Little Market. They’d look stunning no matter how they are used, from a countertop fruit bowl to a decorative accent on a bookshelf. Better yet, each purchase of this fair trade item empowers female artisans in Rwanda. –Ilana, Managing Editor

Laura Geller baked body frosting bronzer

7. Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting in Tahitian Glow, $45
Now that summer has officially hit, I’ve been feeling like I need some help in the summer tan department, and this face and body bronzer has been a lifesaver. A lot of bronzers I have tried look too “muddy” on my skin, but this one is the exact opposite. It goes on so smooth and even! I use a big fluffy brush to apply it under my cheekbones, around the edges of my forehead, and under my jawline and it immediately makes me feel like I just spent a day in the sun. (By the way, the compact is much bigger in person than you’d expect. Definitely worth the price tag!) –Tessa, Associate Editor

popcornopolis cinnamon toast popcorn

8. Popcornopolis Cinnamon Toast Popcorn, starting at $38.46
I was recently introduced to this super addictive popcorn brand after receiving one of their 5-cone flavor assortments, and I have to admit that every flavor I tried has become an obsession. Most recently, my fiancé and I hunkered down for a movie night and tried the cinnamon toast popcorn, and it proved to be the best movie snack for a cozy night on the couch. I just ordered the apple pie flavor because I have a feeling it will satisfy my craving for a slice of summer apple pie—no baking necessary! –Allison, Managing Editor

natural rose deodorant

9. Dr. Hauschka Rose Deodorant, $16
There are few beauty products I’m as loyal to as this one. I made the switch to this natural, nontoxic deodorant a few years back for health and safety reasons, but I then fell head over heels for the scent. People always ask me what perfume I’m wearing, and I tell them it’s just my deodorant! –Ilana, Managing Editor

custom pup watercolor paintings by alexzandra marie art

10. Alexzandra Marie Art Custom Pup Portrait, $200
I know I’ve shared this before, but I recently gave one of Alexz’s amazing watercolor pup portraits as a wedding gift and I am so obsessed with how it turned out! I’m a procrastinator, so of course I waited until 9 months after my friend’s wedding to give her a gift… but it worked out because I was able to send Alexz a photo of the bride and groom’s dog from their wedding day, which she painted for them! –Rachel, Managing Editor
