Sun, Summer & Self-Care

This summer, we’re getting out, making plans, styling new looks, and truly focusing on the what ifs. But in-between creating moments and memories that make summer a standout, be sure to focus on you and take some much-needed time for yourself.

Time to do those things that feel true to you and bring you inner peace. Create moments not only with those around you, but ones that are meant just for you. Whether that consists of curling up with a good book, listening to a podcast while whipping up something in the kitchen, or pressing play on your summer playlist while working out – we’ve got you covered with any and everything you need.

Our reading list

It truly doesn’t get more relaxing than curling up with a book that helps you escape the real world for a little. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to wear that oh-so-soft loungewear you inevitably added to your closet during the last 18 months. So, let’s put on just that, light a candle, grab a blanket, and of course, a book! Here’s our summer reading list.
