Hello July!  Summer has finally arrived and with it come longer days and a need for a simpler, easier beauty and fashion routine.  The Dallas heat brings its challenges and whether you stick it out in the A/C or head out for vacation we’ve compiled a few must-haves from The Plaza for this summer season.

The sun is out, and nothing makes a better fashion statement than a GREAT  pair of sunnies.  They’re the ultimate summer must-have for everyone and Occhiali Modern Optics has the best selection of luxury eyewear around.  You can choose from designer lines like Jacques Marie Mage, Cartier, Andy Wolf and Dita among others and then watch your friends turn green with sunglass envy.

These products from Cos Bar are guaranteed to help you BEAT  the heat.  Humidity is no match for your hair with Oribe Anti-Humidity Spray, it will help that blowout last for days without a bit of frizz in sight.  Keep a healthy glow with St. Tropez gradual tanner infused with a luscious watermelon scent and protect your skin with Revive SPF 50. Hydrate and plump your lips with Natura Bisse, top them off with a gorgeous tinted lip balm from Sisley Paris and then swipe on some aqua blush from Chanticaille for an effortless natural summertime look.

Surfer girl chic is right at your fingertips with this great selection of colorful eco-friendly necklaces from All the Must available at Ylang 23.  This is the perfect “IT GIRL” accessory for the beach or pool.  Pair them with your swimsuit, summer dress or just about anything to give yourself the perfect pop of color to go with that summertime glow.

You scream I scream we all scream for Sprinkles. This time of year, there is NOTHING better than a scoop…or two…from Sprinkles Ice Cream.  It’s the perfect stop after a big day of shopping and the treat that all kids and let’s be honest, adults crave too.

Keep your man looking and feeling COOL  in these linen shirts from Orvis.  The Havana Shirt is one of the best-selling short sleeved shirts in Orvis history.  It’s lightweight, classic and incredibly breathable.  All things that are a must to survive summer in Big D.
