Summer is, no doubt, the season in which I acquire the most stuff. Between afternoon barbeques, boat outings, cabin weekends and poolside lounging, it always seems I’m running to the store for one thing or another. And, out of desperation, the items I end up purchasing usually aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing or the highest quality. In an attempt to remedy that and invest in long-term items, I’m hoping to be a bit more selective with my summer purchases in the months ahead. So I’ve found some of the best, faucethead-approved items to carry you through these blissful summer months without settling for the only option in the local store. Those rain boots definitely are at the top of my list.

If you caught the Spring 2014 runway shows, it was undeniable: cobalt stole the spotlight. It’s really no surprise since the expressive blue works well with a variety of skin tones, brings vivacious energy to any space and conveys vivid patterns in a way no other hue can. It didn’t take any convincing around faucethead headquarters, either. We’re all aboard the cobalt train whether the color is utilized in fashion, interiors or statement footwear. We say, bring on the bold!
