Sun Hats on Amazon

Sun Hats

I love a good sun hat! They aren’t only fashionable but they also protect you from the sun’s beaming rays during the summer. It’s basically like walking around with your own personal shade tree. There are so many different styles and colors that you can surely find one (or two) that fit your style and personality.

I especially love this droopy brim hat!


I love a good pair of sandals! My favorite pair of sandals came from Target three summers ago and I still wear them!

Every mom needs a comfy, yet stylish pair of sandals for the summer. From hot summer beaches to overcrowded theme parks, comfort is key! Whether you are rocking a sundress or linen pants, a great pair of sandals can make a bold statement to any summer outfit.

Be sure to have an amazing pedicure to go with those sandals!

Try Audible on Amazon


Whenever I have moments to myself, I love getting an opportunity to listen to an audiobook. Whether it’s beachside, poolside or hiding in the bathroom while the kids tear the house to shreds, audiobooks are my time away from what is going on around me.

Amazon offers an unlimited service called Audible that allows subscribers to listen to books anywhere at any time from all types of genres. I personally love to listen to personal development books first thing in the morning when getting ready for the day!

Large Tote Bag

I love a good tote bag. Another favorite from Target is my large tote. I literally can just throw everything in there and be good to go. If you are anything like me, you probably have plenty of bags. But the summer is my favorite time to use an excuse to purchase another one!

Tote bags are perfect to have on the go. During the summer when we are out and about, we can easily pack things for ourselves and the kids all in one bag. Great thing is, there are tons of cute styles and patterns to choose from when picking a tote bag. Be cute while leveraging convenience!

Shop Water Bottles on Amazon

Water Bottle

It’s very important to stay hydrated all year round, but especially so during the summer. I always keep a water bottle with me to stay hydrated and energized. Water is essential to get through those hot summer days. Keeping it with you serves as a reminder to drink up and stay hydrated throughout the day.

As a mom, I find it’s always hard to remember the small stuff. Having my water bottle with me when possible, prevents me from forgetting to stay hydrated throughout the day.

There are many types and brands of water bottles out there. My favorite brand is the Camelbak but find one that you like and one that you know you won’t forget!


Every girl needs a styling pair of sunglasses. Not only does it protect your eyes but they add to your overall outfit!

I have numerous pairs of sunglasses. I have a collection almost (along with shoes, bags, and watches!). A good pair of sunglasses is almost like having a good pair of shoes. Almost.

I’d love to see your sunnies. Tag me (@themomlifechronicles) on Instagram!

    I’m obsessed with Audible. I can’t tell you the last time I physically read a book… come to think of it, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing! I speed through books on Audible; it’s a bit of an addiction.

    • Kristie July 20, 2017 at 11:40 am - Reply

      Lol I love it too! So don’t feel bad!

  10. Kerry July 20, 2017 at 1:10 am - Reply

    That looks like such a great planner! Maybe next year I’ll splurge on one!

  11. Lauren July 20, 2017 at 9:41 am - Reply

    All great ideas! Beach travel with kids is always a problem. So many toys, towels, snacks, beach accessories. A nice beach tote solves many problems!

      I couldn’t agree more, Lauren!
