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.
