Summer Sun Essentials



Summer is unofficially here (and a few weeks early)! The weather is finally heating up in the CLE and with temps nearing 90 degrees, no less. The husband and I got our summer on a little early this year with a quick holiday getaway last week. This has me glad of the things I brought along and wishing for some other key pieces I still need to have on hand for an effortless, safe and stylish summer -  pool or beach-side. So here are some of my essentials that everyone should have at the ready.
