Summer Essentials: Chic on the Cheap

Hi, I'm Lydia from Chic on the Cheap, where I am always seeking out sales, discounts, and finding creative ways to put together looks that feel luxurious for as little as possible. Here are my budget friendly summer essentials, for enjoying the sun, the surf, or the shade.

  • My favorite beach day read, Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin ($10 at Amazon) - Two best friends, Darcy and Rachel, are about to spend the summer planning for Darcy's September wedding, until Rachel sleeps with Darcy's fiancee and realizes he's the only man she's ever loved...

    Hilarious, and sweet, I think every girl can related to these best friends. I've read it every summer for the past three years, and best of all, there is a sequel - Something Blue.
Thank you, Lydia! I don't think I could limit myself to just one Starbucks card all summer!

Be sure to visit Lydia over at Chic on the Cheap.
