Summer Essentials

Fanny Pack:

I didn’t know I needed a fanny until I received one as a gift. I have the lululemon everywhere belt bag and it can fit my phone, keys and wallet. I bring this thing everywhere I go. 




In the summer I don’t wear a ton of makeup but my morning routine typically consists of mascara and blush. This blush has been my fav for the past couple of years and blends out super nicely. My other go to blush is by dibs Beauty which I linked below. I wear shade 1 in the blush

Elf Blush:

Dibs Blush:

Roller Lash Mascara: mascara

Claw Clip:

You can do so many cute summer hairstyles with these clips. I love them for when i’m on the go and want to throw my hair up.

Amazon Clips:

Hair Ties:

My favorite creaseless hair ties from target. They work great for both thick and thin hair and are under $5.

Hair Ties:

Rubber Birks:

My favorite shoes ever! They are super comfy and perfect for the lake.

Brumate Water Bottle:

My mom purchased a Brumate water bottle and loved it. I ended up using one on our trip to Punta Cana and have used it ever since. It doesn’t leak like my hydroflask and keeps my water cold all day. (they have lots of fun colors)

Spill Proof Water Bottle:

Toadfish Can Cooler:

I bought a toadfish can cooler for my dad a couple years ago for fathers day for the boat and ended up getting one for myself too. It suctions on the bottom so I can set it down on the boat without worrying about it tipping over.

Can Cooler:


Any SOJOs sunglasses are a good purchase. These are the ones I bought for our trip and this upcoming summer.

Amazon Sunglasses:

Target Shorts:

I recently discovered these target shorts and bought them in white, black, and green. The comfiest linen shorts!


Niki Biki Tops:

Niki Biki crop tops are my fav because you can dress them up or down. They are so comfy and come in literally every color and style you can think of.

Tank Tops:

Liquid IV:

I started taking liquid IV to get rid of headaches and it seems to work like a charm. The green energy multiplier is what my mom and I take when we get occasional headaches because it has caffeine in it. My favorite flavor is by far watermelon or lemon lime. You can use code KATELYN_HAMMER for 25% off your purchase.

Liquid IV:

Victoria Secret Swim Bottoms:

I recently found these mid rise swim bottoms for less than $20. They are a double lined good quality material and stay in place (even in the ocean).

Swim Bottoms:

Dry Shampoo:

I have only found two types of dry shampoo that work on my thick hair and they are Living Proof and Gimme Beauty. Living proof dry shampoo has a cleaning agent in it and makes your hair look clean/voluminous. The Gimme Beauty is not as hardy as the living proof dry shampoo and doesn’t go on white. This product still works great on my hair (this stuff smells amazing).
