We are back with another Mermaid Favorites: The Summer Edit. As we go through this beautiful season, we wanted to share some of our favorite things with you!
Whether you are spending this summer poolside, seaside or in the City; there is nothing better than to adorn yourself in glistening gold and pearls! These are the Washed Ashore team favorites.
The one and only Tide hoops have been our absolute go-to this summer. Made of repurposed fine gold, featuring our signature Wave backing, these lightweight gorgeous hoops will sparkle up any look from day to night.
We have not been taking off our anklets lately! From the beach to the farmer’s market our Myra and Tarita anklets add a touch of shimmer to any outfit. Stack them, throw on a bikini and dive into the ocean.
FOOD & DRINKS
As you know, we love our food! And what better place to be in Summer than the Farmer’s Market? Grab lunch, sample delicious treats, grab some fresh cut flowers and summer fruits, what’s not to love! So hit your local market, support your community and local farmers, consume local and seasonal products.
One thing that makes Summer the best time is definitely summer fruits! From peaches, cherries, nectarines, grapes and everything in between, we look forward to these treats every year. Our favorites right now are yellow peaches and cherry plums.
Sustainably grown Rosé
What tastes better than wine? Sustainably grown wine! We have been loving Wölffer Estates Summer Rosé and Rosé Cider! This family-owned estate located in the heart of the Hamptons has been delighting taste buds since 1988 and has been certified sustainable by adhering to a checklist of 200 best farming practices, caring for their land and their employees.
Borosilicate water bottle
Why? Because borosilicate glass is sturdier and less prone to cracking. These reusable bottles are just so lovely! We love that you can fill them up in advance, pop them in the fridge to carry around or serve at the table. Add some mint, cucumber or lemon slices for a fresh, vitamin packed treat.
BEAUTY & FASHION
Reef safe sunscreen
We all know the immediate and long-term damage to much sun exposure can cause, so sunscreen is a MUST for mermaids! However, you have to be conscious of your sunscreen pick because they can be packed with harmful chemicals that destroys corals and affect ocean bio-diversity.
Here are the chemicals to STAY AWAY from when picking sunscreen:
Pick MINERAL sunscreens made with non-nanotized (aka no tiny particules) Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Let us know in the comments if you find a good brand with non-plastic packaging <3
One Ocean Beauty Daily Moisturizer
After a beautiful day of surfing and frolicking in the ocean what's better than a cool shower and a nice moisturizer! Keep your skin smooth and your tan longer by moisturizing daily. Our favorite is the One Ocean Beauty - Replenishing Deep Sea Moisturizer. It is made from "nutrient-rich algae extract from the Sea of Japan soothes inflammation from UV exposure and brightens for a radiant complexion." Yes please!
Ocean + Main Caftans
We had the pleasure of using them for our Ethereal collection wardrobe and have been in love ever since! Ethical, soft, beautiful, stylish and comfortable. They are your perfect summer beach, lunch or lounge attire.
