First, I would like you all to know that I am catching up on a lot of blog reading–wrapping up a very busy time at work and trying to get my head on straight for a horse show takes a ton of energy! But reading I am, and please forgive any tardy comments.
On to the fun stuff– a few of my favorite things for this summer. Not necessarily new things or cool things, just things I like to have or want to have for the summer months.
Breeches! Yes, I splurged on something:
Next, I’m not a fan of sun or sunscreen, so Icefil shirts are a godsend to me.
My two favorite brands of this type of shirt are Kastel Denmark and Equi In Style–both have new colors out for the season and I couldn’t resist. Plus, I’m preventing skin cancer, so I definitely consider the expense well worth it.
Next, although I hate sunscreen, I don’t happen to have a ski mask made of Icefil, so I need sunscreen for my face.
I have tried a ton of different brands of sunscreen for the face, and this one beats them all. The Kiehl’s Super Fluid sunscreen is the lightest I’ve tried, and it blends quickly into my skin without leaving a streaky white film behind like so many others do. Again, prevention is worth the expense.
Last, bonnets for the horse make my list of Summer 2015 must-haves. No one wants flies and mosquitoes buzzing around ears, and this year’s mosquito crop looks to be quite severe in Texas. Ugh. But also, cuteness of the bonnets!
I picked up a USG bonnet from KLSelect.com. The color just spoke to me. Plus I wanted a lighter color than black for schooling in the summer. I’ll be giving a full review of this bonnet next week.
Any summer must-haves that make your own lists?
Tomorrow, look for my horse show post of the second-ever outing for me and Eli. It was definitely a valuable learning experience and I wanted to give myself a few days to get my thoughts organized. But I can tell you, one of the highlights for me was getting to see Lauren and Simon showing in person! And Lauren took some GORGEOUS pictures, too.
