I can never have too much sunblock on hand. Of course, it must be a physical blocker, my preference being zinc oxide.

Because of my sun hesitant skin, and the need to keep my legs covered and out of the sun this summer due to vein procedures, I need something strong and easy.

Enter: Solar Goo by Green Goo.

First off, I love that it is 20% non-nano zinc oxide. Second, it's hydrating. And third, it rubs in clear. Sweet! But the bonus — the travel size tin can fit in my pocket. Perfect for the lacrosse fields this summer, or wherever my daily adventures take me.

Solar Goo made this on-the-go sunblock for all skin types (yes, even sensitive skin). The formula has only 7 ingredients: organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, non-nano, uncoated zinc oxide 20%, organic calendula flowers, organic sunflower oil, organic beeswax and non GMO Vitamin E. It's petroleum, chemical and gluten free to boot.

Now that I have the travel size, I am ready to buy the big tin. I love this stuff!

Yes I would.

Just look at those sandals! And the handbag. Oh, yes, and the cotton and silk-blend top and skirt. While ruffles are not my thing, somehow Chloé makes it fabulous, in lace and chiffon.

70s meet 2017 chic.

Slip it on this summer.

Wearing jeans and floor length dresses and skirts on the daily this summer, due to my vein procedures, leaves me yearning for naked feet. There's no better way to get that look and feel than with a slide or barely there sandal.

Enter: the Bill Blass denim frayed slide.

Casual, fun and sure to go with more than you think, this slide is a must for summer. Wear it to the pool, beach, lacrosse field, outdoor barbeque or just running errands. No doubt you'll hear "cute shoes" over and over again.

Hipanema made a splash in the summer of 2012 with its must have magnetic bracelet. From beading and tassels to shells and sequins, there is something for every personality. Light spirited and fun!

This season, it's the necklaces that are making an impact. Like the Lycia turquoise necklace. Perfect for your beach vacation, or when you want to bring the beach to you!

My toes were in desperate need of attention this past weekend. And due to my binge watching of the final season of Bloodline, I took matters into my own hands.

Sally Hansen truly has some amazing colors. One of my favorites in the color collection is Shell We Dance, a super soft, feminine pink. While this picture showcases fingernails, it's just as gorgeous on toes! I do believe it's my favorite natural look for feet.
