Bring on the sunshine and swimsuits! We are so SO glad it’s summer. Our editor’s picks for June revolve around all things outdoors—from kid’s jumpsuits and baby rompers to floral art and cooking accessories for making pizza on the grill—here’s what we’re loving as we dive into this hot, sunny season.

Monica’s Picks

For Everyday Kids

I’m in love with these rompers from Parade Organics. They’re long enough in the legs (since my little one seems to be ALWAYS growing out of his pants), but also, how adorable are their sleeveless rompers too?

I’ve also been eying this wooden baby activity gym —I like that it’s fun and useful, but looks nice too.  

For Everyday Homes

Lately I’ve been into adding little details around the house—a potted plant here, candle there. This little faux plant from the Magnolia line at Target is adorable, and this clear vase is perfect for bringing in a branch or two from outside (truly, the right vase makes all the difference). But, if you don’t have access to fresh stem or two, there’s some beautiful faux Eucalyptus available from World Market just $7.99 (and honestly, sometimes it’s just easier!!).

For Everyday Moms

Loft is currently running 40% off sale—including their Lou & Grey line. I love this line because the fabrics are such good quality. I recently purchased this Lou & Grey blouse, which I have been wearing a lot lately because it’s nursing friendly, simple, and easy to wear. But, also, this dress! Looks sooo comfy and cute! If I wasn’t currently nursing, this would be in my cart. Such a good price.

Halley’s Picks

For Everyday Kids

We just celebrated our triplet boys’ birthday and they’re really into imaginative play right now. We got them some Playmobil (did anyone else love this as a kid?! We played for HOURS) like this family in their car, and this cement mixer with the driver and his little bucket.

One of their Grandmas also got them a Wobbel board and I’m honestly so excited about it. It’s great for building, sliding, wobbling, whatever, and fingers crossed we can keep the fighting over it to a minimum (so far, so good). 

I’ve also been stocking up on some new books for them. Lately we’ve been loving books about Jackie Robinson, math, and the library gave me some marigold seeds so naturally we needed to get the Joanna Gaines gardening book to go with it.

For Everyday Homes

I recently created a new gallery wall in my living room and in the process found some really awesome things on Etsy that are really affordable — like this vintage landscape for $9, basically anything sold in this shop, and these incredible florals I just hung in my kitchen (one and two).  

For Everyday Moms

Just ordered myself these sandals in white for this summer and I’m in love! Birkenstocks are always comfortable but these are EXTRA comfortable and they seem like they’ll be practical around the pool (and easy to clean, too). Also, Nordstrom Rack has been having some MAJOR sales lately and if you can’t go in person they still have sales online. I recently found some Joe’s Jeans at mine and I absolutely love them, so so comfy (and the clearance price too). 

Gabby’s Picks

For Everyday Kids

Every so often I like to browse Janie and Jack’s sale section for heirloom quality girls clothes. This fun pink dress and darling peach one were too good to pass up, especially since we have some family weddings this summer! I also snagged this jumpsuit for my daughter and now I wish it came in adult sizes. My kids have been drawing like crazy and we were going through doodle books like mad. I finally just ordered some thick cardstock to keep in a basket with crayons on the craft table. It is so much more cost effective than sketchbooks, and the paper is better quality too!

For Everyday Homes

Warmer weather means BBQ dinners! We love to make pizza and cook it on the grill. This recipe for pizza dough is so simple and delicious, and after the kids help me put on the toppings we use this cast iron griddle to cook it to perfection right on the barbecue. I also started stenciling my bathroom floor after watching Grace Patton’s home tour (catch her tour on our Instagram in the highlights!). It is a time intensive task, but the gorgeous colors from Clare Paint and pretty patterned stencils are totally transforming the kids’ bathroom for a fraction of what it would cost to replace the tile!

For Everyday Moms

My husband picked out the cutest new Birkenstocks for me, and I have been wearing them nonstop. The white leather is so summery and comfortable! Per usual, I am loving everything in Everlane’s new summer drop. My favorites are this dress, which seems so easy for everyday, and this little shift which I feel like you could dress up or dress down with ease.  I’ve also been gravitating toward anything with puff sleeves, and this linen number in marigold is calling my name!

If you’re on the hunt for a new swimsuit…

Our editors have all been patrons of The Hermoza since their launch just over a year ago. Their swimwear is designed to sculpt, flatter, and cover – the perfect combination for Everyday Mamas on the move with little ones. We love their variety of sophisticated styles—from heirloom quality swimwear, effortless resort wear, and fun accessories—it’s all gorgeous. Below are some of their suits from their new summer 2020 line:
