August presents itself in full honesty - summer is here, but fall is near.  It gifts us with transition in the most gentle and beautiful ways possible - warmer ocean water, evening gatherings outside with higher stakes knowing that they will soon disappear, and a very small preview at the fall produce to come.  More than anything, it warns that change is coming, so soak up this time while it lasts.  Here are a few of the staples that I'll use to cherish this late summer month:

STETSON ROAD HAT | felt oddly doesn't feel so intrusive anymore for the evenings here and beyond.  

FIGS | because they are abundant and have wiggled their way into every single dish and smoothie I've been making - especially this tonic

EVAN HEALY POMEGRANATE SERUM | because something about the perfect compatibility between pomegranate and sea buckthorn oil have made my face hydrated and silk-esc. 

JOHN MASTERS ORGANICS SPF 30 | this mineral and shea butter sensation has not only provided great broad spectrum coverage, but so conveniently travels with me everywhere I go. 

SAINT JAMES LONG SLEEVE | after passing on picking one of these up from their original habitat while on holiday in Brittany, France last summer, I've been longing for it ever since.  I think that makes for a legitimate reason to treat myself?  

CLASSIC WHITE VANS | because why fix it if it isn't broken?  There was never another classic that looked so good with vintage cutoff denim shorts and a striped shirt. 

THE TEACHINGS OF YOGI BHAJAN | I'm in need of deep review.

THINGS WILL WORK OUT CARD | since that Blue Moon, I feel like my whole life has transformed. Heres to fingers crossed and trusting that it will all work out. 

JOSIE MARAN ROSY STICK | because I picked this up on a whim a few months ago when I needed a quick cheek before a meeting.  It's become my serious summer on-the-go rose gold halo - post gym, pre meeting, forgot to put on a face - anytime - stick.
