3. Beach Reads

Latest library book haul from Grandview Library for plane/poolside reading. Who has read either of these?

Best part about library books is they’re always free!

4. Floral Shorts

Found at one of my favorite stores to explore in my hometown, Gabriel Brothers. I used to love going here in high school and finding cheap, unique items. There’s a Gabe’s here in Columbus now in Dublin!

Price: $5.99

5. Cooler Bag

Cooler for packing drinks/snacks for the beach, which will also double as my new work lunchbox & looks like a purse!
