August represents a shift in energy as we move through the end of summer and transition into fall. I always feel like my awareness is heightened as I reflect on the memories and accomplishments of the last few months and make a mental note of the things I still want to experience. It has been a wonderful summer filled with memories I will cherish, and a lot of behind the scenes work on my coaching and future collaborations. I am also in the process of planning a trip to Tulum in the next 1-2 months to plan our wedding (SO excited!) – please let me know if you have any recommendations!
Despite fall being around the corner, the heat is still very much here and I can’t get enough of off-the-shoulder tops, denim shorts, and easy (sustainably-made) slides. Staying hydrated and making plenty of time for self-care is always a top priority.
These are my current go-to essentials that have me feeling inspired, comfortable, nourished and are bringing me joy for the month of August.
BLISS & MISCHIEF OFF THE SHOULDER TOP IN IVORY • this romantic top is lightweight, ridiculuously soft and instantly pulls together any outfit
ALEXANDER WANG DISTRESSED DENIM SHORTS • a good pair of distressed denim cut-offs are a must-have for easy weekend style
BRASS HAIR PIN • I have been pulling my hair back and off my face + this pin is the perfect answer for an effortless top knot
CHRISTY DAWN CROSSBODY IN DUSTY PINK • Christy Dawn is one of my go-to sites for vintage inspired dresses. Her new line of bags are GORGEOUS and this dusty pink crossbody is an instant classic
CATBIRD ANKLET • I am Catbird obsessed and love the delicate detail this anklet brings to my summer wardrobe
EVERLANE SLIDE SANDAL • I am deeply inspired by Everlane’s transparency and mission of sustainability, these are a great neutral sandal, stylish and go with pretty much everything
HEALING TONICS BY ADRIANA AYALES • such an incredible book! I am a long time fan of Adriana of Anima Mundi Herbals and I could not put it down. It is packed full of her herbal knowledge and filled with recipes I have been making daily
FIGS • taking full advantage of the season, I have been picking up these beauties every trip to the market and can’t get enough
RAHUA SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER • I have blogged about my love for Rahua before but took a break while using Acure and testing a few other brands – so excited to have them back in the mix and thankful they are keeping my newly dyed platnium hair healthy
EUCALYPTUS • ever since we got kittens, the days where I can randomly put flowers everywhere are over (so sad but they knock them over!) I have been obsessed with filling the apartment with eucalyptus, especially in the shower where the steam releases their healing scent
COPPER WATER BOTTLE • for staying hydrated on-the-go and the Ayurvedic health benefits such as thyroid regulation + reducing inflammation in the body
PRESSED JUICERY GREENS 1 • now that Pressed Juicery is in my neighborhood (!!!) I am stopping by often for my current favorite juice, Greens 1
JIVA APOHA SUNDARA FACE OIL • this deeply hydrating oil is a luxurious treat and my skin has been soaking it up during my nightly skincare regimen
KARUNA BRIGHTENING FACE MASK • all natural sheet mask to the rescue! Loving this brand and excited to try more of the line + share my experience
