Hey Y’all, Let’s Talk About My Summertime Favorites!

Summer is finally here, y’all! The sun is shining bright, pool time is weekend time, and I’ll be sipping on frosé to beat the heat. So let us kick-off this post with a few of my summertime favorites, which I am sure you will enjoy.

For some time now I have been on the Texas-inspired apparel bandwagon and honestly who can resist anything with Texas on it? Seeing the beautiful state shape to anything that reminds me what being Texan is all about tugs at my heart. That’s why I am in love with this super comfy Dallas skyline tank and Texas “hey y’all” mug from Cately Designs.

This local Texas shop (yay for small business!) has SO many super cute tees and mugs. Some of my favorite shirts include the…

> Sorry I’m late, I didn’t want to come tee, because honestly, who cannot relate?

> Treat yo self tank, because we all need some self-care.

> Texas forever tee, because being a Texan is the best.

> I’m so Dallas tee, because Dallas is so Dallas.

> DFW arrow tee, because who doesn’t love a great pocket shirt?

Cately Designs is owned by Erika and she is so incredibly sweet. Erika has lived in DFW since she was 6 years old and started Cately Designs in July 2016 as a way to show her creativity and escape the 9-5 corporate life.

I am a huge advocate of shopping local and supporting our community, so I have managed to get y’all a coupon code for Cately Designs. Use the code TXELIZABETH at checkout for 10% off your purchase through June 30. You can shop at either the Cately Designs website or the Cately Designs Etsy page.

Up next is my new favorite watch by One Eleven Watches. I am 100% onboard with their motto of “working hard, but living for the weekend” and the fact that these watches are created with sustainability in mind makes my heart so happy.

One Eleven is on a journey to be a truly sustainable brand and does everything from reusing materials to reducing waste and minimizing the environmental impact of their collections. Take that climate change!

On a daily basis, I am rocking the SW1 Solar 3-Hand Dark Brown Leather Watch, which just so happens to match with just about everything. The watch is so comfortable that I sometimes forget I am even wearing it, plus it fits around my small wrist. BUT the coolest thing about One Eleven is that their watches are continually charged with natural and artificial light, and there is no shortage of the sun in Texas. With a watch like this, you don’t have to worry about the battery dying and you can always depend on it. This is the perfect watch for my travels and outdoor adventures. It is the B-E-S-T!

If you love taking your adventures on and off the grid, then you are in luck! After picking your favorite One Eleven watch, use the code ELIZABETH15 at checkout for 15% off your purchase.

I truly hope you enjoyed reading this post! If you see me around town, do not be surprised to see me in either the Dallas skyline tank or wearing my One Eleven watch. See ya on the next post!

    Living in Florida where it’s like 100° every day I love to wear rompers and sundresses. They are my go-to’s all summer long! Great post.

    Really love the ‘Hey Y’all’ mug. I’m your state neighbor and understand the extreme weather right now. Either extremely hot or rain.

    I love the watch bands. I also like the fact you are sharing as opposed to selling your opinion. Keep up the good work.

    At the moment, I’m wishing Texas would take a cool down. Hitting triple digits down here is driving me crazy. I love the tanks and tees! Particularly the one about not wanting to come… I’m sarcastic by nature, so that would be perfect for me!

    I used to live and work in Dallas and would absolutely love the “I’m So Dallas” tee. I always get so excited when I meet fellow Texan from Dallas/Fort Worth area.

    On the everyday, I love light summer dresses. The jeans and tank top styles are really cute though and I am totally in love with the watch. I am not certain why there is the assumption that women want watches so small they can’t read the time. If I am going to spend my money on a watch, I want one big enough to read the time without my glasses.

    I’m currently living in Nashville, so that mug is rocking my world. Summer favs to wear, I love a nice slip dress and super cute sundresses.

    My fave summertime clothing is for sure tank tops. We don’t get to wear tanks (or flip flops!) for like 8 months where I live…so we make the MOST of each short summer that we have 🙂
