June Favorites: Courtney's Current Crush List

Posted by Courtney Frye on

This June edition of Courtney's Current Crust List is brought to you by all things summer, sand and surf! 

We head to the beach in early July and Jamaica shortly there after, so naturally my mind is churning with things to pack and take. 

I've rounded up some of my current faves below...

 

#1 Scout Bags - Large Package Gift Bag

My friend, Kathryn, gifted me with a Scout bag for my birthday filled with some other goodies (also posted further down.) I've eyed Scout bags for a couple of years but had never purchased one. Naturally I was thrilled when this was part of my birthday gift as I'm often known as the Bag Lady! Gah, I love a good tote!

This particular large package gift bag size is great for packing pool lunches or snacks, books and toys for travel, groceries or even as a medium sized pool bag. The possibilities are endless! Many shops and boutiques carry the Scout line so look for them while you are out and about and let that bit the gift bag that keeps on giving for all of your gift giving needs. 

Zulily currently has Scout bags on sale so run, don't walk, to their website here to score some at a discount! {Thanks, Kathryn for the heads up!!}

#2 Haley & The Hound 2-Pc Swim Suit

So I did a thing. Something I haven't done sine my college years. 

I bought a {modest} 2-piece bathing suite. My body doesn't bounce right back after having children AND I like to eat. So for the past few years, I've not felt comfortable enough in my own skin to show some skin. I'm far too modest and conservative for that. 

However, after losing some weight this year, I was feeling a little more adventurous and let's be honest, we ALL see others at the pool and beach letting it all hang out and gosh darn it if they can, I can to! I just choose to do it in a full-coverage kind of way. 

#3 Crown & Ivy Oversized Beach Towels

 

My mom gave me four new Crown & Ivy beach towels for my birthday and they were desperately needed! Beach towels are the one thing that I never think to replace. I actually still have a big Lands End one that I use from my high school days and it's still looking pretty good. But the el cheapo ones we've acquired over the years need to be tossed. 

These retail for $32 {who pays that much for a single beach towel?!?} but my mom scored them on major sale! They are oh so plush, colorful and vibrant, and long enough to cover the majority of a lounge chair. 

#4 Target Sun Squad Pitcher and Stemless Glasses

 

Inside of my fun Scout gift bag, Kathryn had this fun plastic pitcher and stemless glasses so we could whip up some lemonade and cocktails while entertaining in our new and improved back yard! Truth be told, I NEEDED a new pitcher. My monogrammed acrylic one from a wedding shower 11 years ago is about to bite the dust (I'm sure my sweet mom is hollering an Amen right now as she's the one who uses it the most when she's in town.) 

I foresee us using these a lot this summer!

#5 Breezy Beach Cover Up from the Flourish Market

Last Friday while working in my new co-working space, The Locality, Phillip popped in to check out my new Friday "office" digs. On the way out, I showed him around the Flourish Market store front and he picked out this dress for me and told me I should try it on and get it. After he left, I did. Only to realize the slits on the sides were wayyyyy too short to be a dress. I looked at the tag and sure enough, it was a beach cover up! But hey, I'll throw it over some white jeans and wear it as a tunic and as a beach cover up! 

That's a wrap on my June current crush list! Leave a comment below and tell me what you're loving right now!
