Summer is near and we are counting down the days until summer. We can’t wait until we can put on our swimsuits and hop on down to the beach, but in the mean time we have to make sure we’re ready. We’ve put together a Summer Survival Kit to ensure you have all the summer essentials for the sun basking and heat wave season ahead!

Summer Survival Kit --  Tog + Porter


What you’ll need:


Summer is all about being outside and enjoying the warm weather. However, the sun has very harmful UV rays that can cause serious skin damage. Wearing sunscreen while you are outside will only help protect and enhance the beautiful skin you’re in.


Sunglasses are another way to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun. Not to mention, you’ll be looking stylishly cute and fun in your favorite shades of summer.


There are so many different types of hats to choose from. A floppy hat or visor, there’s always that one that looks great with any outfit. For protection and a quirky appeal,  it’s essential you have a hat for the coming months of summer!


It’s going to be a hot one. To prevent your feet from sweating, opt for a pair of  breathable and light sandals. With so many different types of styles and makes,  have a pair or two on hand for  every summer outfit you love.


What’s summer without a swimsuit?  You’ll be spending time with your family and friends by the  pool, beach, or lake. If a one piece suits  your fancy, try a mono-kini or wrapping an airy beach wrap around your waist for a fun twist.

Reusable water bottle:

It’s very easy to become dehydrated in the heat. Save plastic, go green, and get yourself a reusable bottle! Not only will you be able to refill on the go but you’ll want to finish each and every drip (who has time to waste water anyway?).


It’s always the worse when you ‘re reminiscing about  life, wishing you had capture the moment. Don’t let the summer time memories pass you by! Shop for a point and shoot camera that lets you take pictures on the go.  By the end of the summer, you’ll have a collage of  the blissful moments you spent with family and friends  you’ll never forget.

Mini-emergency kit:

These little boxes are great! You’ll never know when you’ll need a bandaid or even a needle and thread. They’re so small you can fit these life savers in your purse and use when an emergency is on alert.


An essential piece for summer, you can wear a dress to just about anywhere. Wear it to the beach, a pool party, or simply lounge around at  your summer lake house. A dress at hand is the perfect remedy for any summer time festivity.


When you are at the pool getting your tan on or at the park watching your children play,  a book to read will pass the time away and take you on a break from reality. Need a good book recommendation? Try GoodReads!
