Summer 2022 has arrived! We’ve put together some of our Shoppes picks below to ensure that you enjoy every bit this season has to offer.

Cool Down

Refresh and reset with the help of The Shoppes this summer! There’s nothing like a mid-day pick-me-up, caffeinated or sugary, to beat the heat. If you’re looking for a jolt of energy but don’t favor the coveted Cold Brew, the new Charged Lemonade from Panera Bread may become your new go-to. Choose from either Fuji Apple Cranberry, Strawberry Lemon Mint or Mango Citrus and let the Clean Caffeine work its magic! Looking for a treat you can share with your littles while strolling? How about a Handspun Milkshake from Five Guys? This classic drink is sure to delight those tastebuds and just may be worth bribing with to get in some extra shopping time. Coffee and dessert combine to create the Instagram-worthy Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino from Starbucks! Crafted with coffee, mocha sauce, Frappuccino chips, milk, chocolate cookie crumble and vanilla whipped cream, this sweet summer sip is one you’ll want to savor until every bit is gone — delish! Also, don’t forget to grab a Puppuccino for your furry friend so they can enjoy along with you.

Stock Up

Before you head out for fun in the sun, make sure you’ve got these pre- and post-sun care essentials on hand. First and foremost, SPF! The Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ from Trader Joe’s contains skin-nourishing ingredients like aloe, vitamin E and coconut oil so you can feel good while you apply. Plus, it’s water resistant so you and your kiddies can go feel the water ASAP! If you love taking a dip in the pool or ocean, the Playa Monoi Milk Leave-In Conditioner from Sephora is about to become your new BFF. Simply spritz on wet hair from mid-length to ends and burhs through to say goodbye to painful post-beach detangling.Speaking of post-beach trip, if you’ve overdone it in the sun (we’ve all been there) and are in desperate need of some relief, you need the Snow Fox Artic Breeze Rescue Mask from bluemercury. This all-in-one face mask hydrates and calms skin irritations like redness, inflammation and sunburn. Place it on skin and leave on for 20 minutes for cooling relief.

Show Up

Show up in style this summer! From BBQs to date nights, these picks are versatile to take you from one summer activity to the next. First up, a stylish tote like this one from Francesca’s. Big bags are IN this season, so take full advantage! Throw in your sunscreen, a good read, reusable water bottle and snack and get ready for wherever the day may take you—prepped and ontrend. Go from morning to evening in a tiered midi black dress, like this one from Gap. Heading to work? Throw a cropped denim jacket over it with your favorite platform sandals. Hitting up happy hour? Grab a claw clip, your favorite earrings and get ready for some margaritas. Be bold with an eye-catching accessory like this straw hat from LOFT. Rock it at the pool for some much-needed shade, or wear it to the Farmer’s Market, market bag in hand.
