Happy dog days of summer, mermaids!! X O
stories from the sea
We're not complaining or anything, but it's hot out there, y'all! Surely, you know how much we love color here at Perspicasity. But as these summer temps continue to rise, we find ourselves pulling more and more white out of the closet. Effortlessly chic, cool and comfortable, head-to-toe white is an easy, go-to summer staple look. Whitney (above) shows us how it's done in this white fringe, embroidered tunic from Perspicasity. Read on for more of what's currently inspiring us.
We love how cool and calming white can be, both in the home and in the wardrobe. And let's all just agree that we can disregard the worn-out fashion rule of "no white past Labor Day." We absolutely adore how beautifully white transitions into Fall and beyond. Here's how it's done:
And guess what? Mermen look amazing in an all-white ensemble as well. Case in point--
After a long day sweating out in the Summer heat, what better way to relax than in a clean, cool white home space? Perfect for the interior or the exterior, the powder room or the living room, a white palette works just about anywhere.
And when it comes to using white in the home, we love its versatility. Mix it with other neutrals and natural textures like raffia and wood, or mix it with bright pops of color for an altogether different look and feel.
Here's a bit more inspiration from our Instagram page. (Be sure to give us a follow!)
Now come by to see us at Perspicasity and check out our great selection of whites. We've got you covered from staple white tees to white linen CP Shades and everything in between. Or check us out on Shoptiques for the gorgeous maxi dress shown below on Whitney and tons of other great items!

Jordan's Pick: because mermaids love a good, safe bronze...
This bronzing butter by Shine On Living is about to become your new best friend. Not only does it make you shimmery and bronze, it is also all-natural, nutrient-rich, has antioxidant actives, and is ultra moisturizing, plus the company was born right here in Santa Rosa Beach! What's not to love?
If you don't win our giveaway, you'll definitely want to rush right over to Beach Ready Spa to purchase this amazing product ASAP. While you're there, you should go ahead and try one of their signature Shell Pedicures, another of our favorites, and check out their wonderful assortment of natural and organic beauty products.
Price's Pick: because hydration is a must...
No one can better explain what makes this product so awesome than the creator herself. In her own words, on what makes this Solar Recover Save Your Skin spray so amazing--
"Our lead product was conceived of a few years ago innocently enough when I owned a tennis club in the Southern California desert where the daytime summer temps reached 115 degrees regularly. After being nuked all day the last thing I wanted to do was to smear sticky aloe products on my skin. We created a fine mist to rehydrate and discovered by accident one day when we got sunburned at the beach that the spray calmed down the burn and prevented peeling unlike anything else we had ever used."
And on how to use the product--
Audrey's Pick: because mermaids love the smell of coconuts, of course!
Comptoir Sud Pacifique was founded in 1974 by Josée and Pierre Fournier - audacious couple, lovers of freedom, adventure seekers. During their travels, they discovered unusual, precious, and often rare essences that formed the foundation of their unique scent collection.
For Audrey's pick, these master perfumers have truly captured the feeling of the tropics. Coco Extreme plays with the flirty warm scents of carefree coconut and enticing vanilla. The fragrance translates to a subconscious feeling of warm sands, the caress of a tropical sun, and the relaxed confidence of the Caribbean. Launched in 2006, this fragrance has a creamy composition to capture the experience of waves crashing on the shore and a hammock between gently swaying coconut palms.
Come see us at Perspicasity for this scent and the rest of the Comptoir Sud Pacifique fragrance collection, and be transported to your happy place.
Miranda's Pick: because mermaids aren't as pretty with a sunburn...
Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 provides super broad spectrum sun protection for face & body in an oil-free, non-comedogenic lotion. Powered by potent antioxidant-rich Cellular Response Technology, this lotion preserves and protects skin’s youthful glow. This feel-good formula is moisturizing, lightweight and fast-absorbing.
What Makes This Goop Super
• Non-comedogenic, avobenzone based formula easily absorbs into the skin allowing skin to breathe and sweat
• Replenishes moisture through a unique beta-glucan proven to deliver better long term moisturization than hyaluronic acid
• Natural extracts of citrus, basil and boise de rose provide a subtle sensorial experience with no unpleasant “sunscreen” smell.
Find this and an assortment of other Super Goop products at Seaside Kids and Seaside Classic.
Jordan's Pick: because who doesn't love beach hair?
Herbivore's Sea Mist Hair Spray is formulated with the same salinity as Pacific Ocean saltwater. This spray is great for adding beachy texture and waves to hair naturally, and the essential oils of coconut and vanilla give off an exotic aroma.
Containing only the finest, all-natural ingredients, with an emphasis on ingredients that are plant-based, organic, and food-grade, each ingredient is included for a therapeutic reason. All of the oils are cold-pressed or steam distilled. These are the best extraction methods available and lead to premium quality oils. All products are made in small batches in the USA.
Yes to all of that, amirite?!?
Be sure to visit Raw & Juicy's lifestyle store on the South side of 30A the next time you're in Seaside. In addition to this beautiful Herbivore collection, they have lots of other mermaid-approved beauty products and a lovely assortment of home wares. We should also mention that Jen & Arix serve raw coconuts with homemade infused simple syrups on the patio-- definitely our favorite way to sip n shop.
Caroline's Pick: because mermaids love to shimmer...
Moisturizing never looked so good. This light body spray has a sweet shimmer that not only hydrates the rough and dry patches, but gives an extra glisten. An extra that should always be included, we think.
Available in four different scents, our favorite is Boheme. This boho-chic scent is warm, sensual and free-spirited. Ylang ylang, jasmine and light citrus notes are mixed with vanilla, amber and musk. You will feel like you are watching the sunset after a day on 30A.
If you haven't visited the Art of Simple yet, you must. They have so many beauty products to love, we had a hard time choosing a favorite for this post!! A sampling of their product mix is available online, but it doesn't compare to the experience of visiting this adorable emporium of "curiosities & necessities." Be sure to tell Laura & Michael, the couple behind the Art of Simple, "hello" for us!
Nicole's Pick: because soft lips that taste like coconuts are better...
Sun Bum's Coconut lip balm with SPF 30 is so yummy, it's hard not to lick it right off! With added Aloe and Vitamin E, it will protect and moisturize your kisser all day long. It relieves the drying effects of sun, wind and sea, and it restores and nourishes chapped lips.
