The A-List: Spring and Summer Must-Haves

By Arielle Olfers – May 1, 2018

COOLA Travel Size Organic Sunscreen Spray $20 

Organic Bronze (The Domain)
Whether you’re packing your bags for a getaway or heading to Barton Springs pool, this organic, TSA-compliant sunscreen will meet your every need. Sheer, water- and sweat-resistant, this is a great option for working out in the Texas heat! Shop local and pick this up along with all the gear you’ll ever need for summer at Organic Bronze in The Domain. 

BluBlocker® Sunglasses Starting at $33
Yes, these are the sunglasses you saw in The Hangover. Vintage yet refined, we recommend them because of their protective lenses! BluBlockers’ high-definition amber Malenium® lenses block 100 percent of UV and blue light, giving you the extra protection you need. The original BluBlocker® sunglasses protected against UV rays and were created for the NASA space program 30 years ago. They were manufactured for retail when a California sunglass manufacturer realized he could block UV rays as well as blue rays to protect the retina. These shades not only protect you from losing your eyesight due to sun exposure, but also allow objects to appear sharper and clearer, too. 

Soludos Shoes for Men and Women $48–$129
The original Soludos slipper was named after Salvador Dali, who famously wore them around his hometown of Barcelona. We’re channeling Mr. Dali this summer all around Austin because we can’t get enough Soludos' of blanket stitches that mold to your feet, unique designs, and overall classic style. They are perfect for a walk to one of our natural pools or a pit stop at Perla’s or Hotel San Jose for a classic Austin happy hour. Now that our feet are in style, bring on the frosé! 

Siete Foods Lime Grain Free Tortilla Chips $4–5 per bag 

Whole Foods, Wheatsville, or Central Market
Our favorite summer snack—a taste of vacation with trustworthy ingredients like cassava flour, avocado oil, coconut flour, ground chia seed, sea salt, citric acid, and lime oil. So flavorful you don’t even need salsa! Tart and refreshing, these chips will be a sure hit at your next pool party.

The Bedouin Roundie Beach Towel $74 
An Austin-centric round beach towel with a celebration of Middle-Eastern colors and patterns—perfect for picnics, festival season, and park hangs.

Elemental Stainless Steel Classic Water Bottle $35 
Is your plastic water bottle starting to smell a little funky? Ours too. Plastic and 100-degree days really don’t mix well, so we switched it up with this stainless steel bottle just in time for summer. With festive colors, bamboo lids, and double-walled technology that holds the temperature of the contents while preventing sweating, this SoCal-based company nailed the balance between style and functionality. It’s perfect for shakes, home-brewed coffee, cocktails, or wine (pro tip: It’s the perfect wine growler since is holds 750 ml—the same as a wine bottle). Oh yeah, and it’s great for water, too.

Tacos Baseball Cap $36
Because it’s Austin and we can’t get enough tacos, we love this vintage-washed cotton baseball cap from local boutique, Frankie Jean. Made to order with felt lettering, all Frankie Jean hats are made from recycled post-consumer plastic
