Okay campers, rise and shine. It’s time to swap out your everyday silver and gold jewelry for vibrant, fun and kitschy options that can withstand a dip in the water and ample sunscreen.
This summer I have created a nifty guidebook to introduce you to the season’s must-have jewelry and sunscreen. From beaded bracelets to stringy anklets and alphabet necklaces, the “Summer Camp” jewelry trend is EVERYTHING right now.
Spotted on celebs and all over your Instagram feed, this trend brings back all the retro feel-good vibes of childhood summer camp.
Packed full of the nostalgia from those simple sunny days of braiding rope friendship bracelets, exploring remote wooded areas, telling ghost stories and crushing on the camp counselors- it’s not only chic but also a mood booster!
Easy to style, playful and laid back (in the best way). You can rock them with just about anything, for any summer activity, without the worry of damaging them.
DAY ONE: The Lake is My HAPPY PLACE
Since we are besties I wanted to help bring this happy-go-lucky optimistic energy into your wardrobe. I gathered some of my favorite Summer Camp Jewelry from Kendra Scott at Fashion Show Las Vegas and paired them with my favorite SPF must-haves from Neiman Marcus at Fashion Show Las Vegas to create the perfect bunkmates.
What’s summer camp without sunscreen and friendship bracelets? Just relax by the lake and create some joy.
For this awesome nostalgic creation, the new Kendra Scott Ellie DIY Friendship Bracelet Kit allows you to mix, match, and make your own bracelet. Dream up a one-of-a-kind keepsake for you or for your BFF.
Roast some ‘smores not your skin with these two skin protectors.
COOLA SPF Classic Organic Tropical Coconut Sunscreen Stick SPF 30. A perfectly portable organic sunscreen stick that gives you water-resistant, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection whenever you need it. Infused with antioxidant-rich Plant Protection® Complex, this naturally-scented tropical coconut stick helps combat free radicals while nourishing your skin. Great for the face so you don’t get sunscreen in your eyes.

DAY TWO: Change is Necessary for Surviving
The Gold Strand Kendra Scott Reese Optimist Necklace in pink pastel is a reminder that, at all costs, choose hope in the midst of challenge.

Did you know there are 82 uses for paracord? I didn’t know that either. But I did know that the Kendra Scott Maisie Gold Chorded Friendship Bracelet and Maisie Paracord Cuff are must-haves. Mint Mix Paracord mixes bright, braided paracord in curated color of the moment. It’s the ultimate Friendship bracelet and a great add to any survival gear. You will never take this “tool” for granted again.
