Style-Architects Summer Must Haves

The SA team loves swapping tips & advice about everything; from unique boutiques to best beauty products, someone in the office has scoop. With summer on the horizon {can you believe it’s already mid-May?!}, we put together a glimpse at the team’s go-to summer gear.

1. Kayd: Hurraw Grapefruit Lip Balm // “This lip balm is all-natural, so naturally it’s pretty cool. Plus, the grapefruit flavor is sure to bring a little zest to the summer!”

2. Carlyn: Sebastian Joe’s Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream // “Do I need an explanation? The Raspberry Chocolate Chip flavor from Sebastian Joe’s is one of my favorites because it’s that perfect combination of tangy and sweet - perfect for a hot summer day.”

3. Christina: Vitamin C Body Polish // “After a harsh winter, I need to rehydrate my skin to get it ready for the summer. I can’t wait to try the Vitamin C Body Polish because their all-natural ingredients will leave my skin feeling immaculate immediately, which leaves me more time to spend with my daughter and husband on our summer adventures!”

4. Jasmine: The Big Turtle Shell - Wireless Speaker from Outdoor Tech // “Summer for me means life at the lake. From stand-up paddleboarding and sand volleyball to grill-outs and bonfires, this water-resistant, dust & shock-proof speaker is the perfect sidekick. Bonus: it uses bluetooth technology and doubles as a USB charging port when my iPhone gets low on juice.

5. Gina: NARS Primer from Blue Mercury // “With all the great outdoor activities Minneapolis has to offer, I plan on being outside as much as I can. This primer will help protect against the harsh rays, while also absorbing the oils that may occur due to the sizzlin’ hot temps.”

6. Madeline: Tote Bag from Cuyana // “I plan on getting away as much as I can with visits to the lake. This bag is perfect because it’s tall so I can fit all of my summer necessities in it, and the blush color is pretty dreamy, don't you think?"

7. Rachelle: Fitbit Charge // “I’m obsessed now with tracking my steps and calories burned.  I love seeing how many steps I walk and how many calories I burn at my summer weddings!”

8. Claire: Asics GEL -Kayano // “I ran the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon last fall and I’m pumped for long training runs around local lakes again this summer. Asics are my go-to running shoes, because they fit my narrow feet and come in adorable color palettes, like this mint pair.”

9. Diana: Hexagon Marble Boards from CB2 // “I’m moving into my dream space this summer, so I can’t wait to have all my friends over and have fancy dinner parties!"
