Jewelry inspired by your favorite summer snacks + 5 other things I obsessed over this month
My summer obsessions include: bras as tops, fruit-inspired jewelry, the playboy x pride collab, luxurious lotions, and a music video for a pop-punk track that’s basically a whole ass movie.
1. A super comfy bralette that doubles as a crop top
Sometimes in the summer months, it gets so hot that you literally want to walk out of the house in your bra. Except who wears bras anymore? Enter Floatley, an inner and activewear brand that uses the softest, butter-y fabric for all their designs. I’ve personally been rocking their Cozy Triangle Longline bralette in “Reed” semi-regularly. The straps are adjustable, there are no wires, and the fabric is quick-dry to fight any summer sweats.
2. A super rich hair masque to keep your hair frizz-free all summer long
When I first heard of the brand Better Not Younger, I thought of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans (you know, that denim brand for hot moms?). I initially wrote the brand off as something for older women without paying much mind. But then, my blonde friend with good (and expensive) taste told me about how she was obsessing over Better Not Younger’s products, so I knew I had to try. Their Redemption Butter Masque is just what your hair needs in the summer to save it from all the salt, sand, and chlorine. It also helps fight frizz and add moisture—and is great for all hair types. Some of my other faves from their line include the New Dawn Activated Charcoal Scalp Cleanser and Power Within Collagen Gummies.
3. Jewelry inspired by your favorite summer snacks
If a brand ever makes clothes/shoes/accessories inspired by food—you know I’m about that life. Local Eclectic, one of Gigi Hadid’s favorite jewelry brands, has a selection of succulent fruit-spired rings for summer. Best of all, they come in sizes 5-9, so all you fellow smol-fingered bbs can get rings that fit!
4. A dad hat that’ll show your pride all year long (and cover your scalp from sunburn)
Whoever said Pride merch should only be worn in June was seriously disturbed. This Playboy “Pride is Good” Dad Hat includes the OG pride flag, the transgender pride flag, and the iconic Playboy bunny. It’s also adjustable in the back.
5. A music video that modernizes your fave Y2k rom-com
Here at Galore, we love a 2000’s throwback, and the newly released video from Sk8 gives us all our favorite throwback visuals—skater boys in an empty pool, garage band tryouts, and baddies rocking out with the boys (and not getting objectified! Yay!). The video, directed by Daniel Kelly, also includes cameos from everyone’s favorite fitness model—Sommer Ray. The track, “Girl Next Door,” has a throwback vibe, too—think your 00’s fave pop-punk band meets MGK—with a modern twist and blending of the genres thanks to a feature from Wiz Khalifa and DVBBS.
6. A body lotion that’s as luxurious as your fancy lingerie
ICYMI: La Perla launched a beauty line, and if like me you’re a fan of luxury lingerie and all the pretty things, you’re not going to want to miss this. My current favorite is their Firming Body Lotion Serum. The bottle looks and feels like a work of art, and the scent is more reminiscent of a fancy perfume than a body lotion. Also, the entire line of body products are refillable for an eco-friendly element. This product is also vegan!
