Havaianas Flip Flops – Rumor has it they may not be the best for your feet, but I look forward to wearing these every summer. They are perfectly paired with beachwear, skirts, shorts and dresses.

Goldenbleu Charley Fold Over Clutch – I am obsessed with handbags and especially this oversized clutch. It holds more than just your lip gloss and phone – and I love the patent shine. >

Calypso Vanille Eau de Toilette fragrance – I am not a big perfume person, but I love the light clean feeling of all the Calypso fragrances. Vanille is my favorite at the moment but, trust me, it is hard to choose just one!

Bare Escentuals Makeup – Even on days when I’m wearing no makeup, I do a quick swipe of this mineral foundation. It instantly evens out my skin tone and makes me feel more polished.

erez2.jpgLightweight Cardigans – Rarely do I go anywhere without a little shrunken cardigan to pull on if the weather gets chilly or the air conditioning is on overdrive. This summer, I am loving my Splendid Jersey Cardigan, it’s as soft as a t-shirt and super comfortable. JCrew Summerweight Cashmere Cardigans are also a favorite and come in tons of colors. >

Cosabella Soire Mesh G-String – I live in these – they’re comfortable and ensure no VPL.

Goody StayPut Elastics – At some point in the day, my hair inevitably ends up in a ponytail. These elastics live up to their name and really stay put. I probably have hundreds tucked in every handbag, drawer and pocket.


iPhone – Whether I’m checking email, talking on the phone, surfing the Web or listening to music, my iPhone is with me 24/7.

Lip Glosses – From Stila Lip Glaze to Korres Full Color Gloss, M.A.C Dazzleglass to Philosophy Big Mouth, my lips just can’t get enough! Even if you don’t have time to do a whole face of makeup, swiping on some lip gloss just pulls any look together instantly.

Hollywould Black Satin Ballet Flats – I wear them year-round. They’re super-comfortable, they dress up even jeans and t-shirts, and no matter how much I walk around in them, they still look brand-new. (They’re six years old!) >


Ralph Lauren Romance perfume – Other fragrances come and go, but this is the one with staying power. I love its fresh floral scent — and the fact that people always tell me how good I smell!

orlakelly.pngOrla Kiely Multi Stem Tote – The exterior has a water-resistant coating making it the perfect bag for any kind of weather. I can throw it around and not worry about it getting dirty and it’s strong enought to carry my iBook. Added bonus: it matches everything. >


Benefit Cosmetics “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer – Even if I’m not wearing any other makeup, I can put this on and feel confident to run errands, go to the gym or, (if I oversleep), even go to work. I use it on my nose, temples, forehead and cheeks.

270x300BlackHybrid.jpgButler Bag – So simple yet ingenious, it’s a chic leather handbag with a compartmentalized interior. It holds everything from electronics and cosmetics to snacks and water bottles. No more digging around messy purses in frustration – it’s the ideal bag for women on the go. >

Pantene Pro-V Deep Fortifying Treatment – The ultimate cheap thrill, it softens my hair like nothing else out there and leaves it smooth and easy to manage.

Laura Mercier Canyon Creme Cheek Color – It’s a peachy-brown that looks natural and fresh all year. It’s great when I’m running late and just need something to quickly brighten up!
 
GapBody Ribbed Tank Tops – Great color selection, a perfect fit, the softest material and versatile enough to wear whether at work or play – you can’t go wrong.

kissmyface.jpg Kiss My Face “Face Factor” Face + Neck SPF 30 Sunscreen – I don’t go anywhere without an effective sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. I love that this one is fragrance-free! >

Poppy Cotton Picnic Dress by Kate – This breezy sundress is made out of 100% organic cotton and is totally adorable in the summertime. It keeps me cool when the weather heats up–plus it doesn’t harm the environment.

Charmone “Longwing” Sandals – Charmone makes beautiful, luxurious shoes that are also sustainable and cruelty-free. They use eco-friendly materials and are animal-free. They’re a must-have for stylish feet that want to leave a light footprint on the planet!
