Sure, the season may not be quite as fun when you’re an adult and still have work to do and bills to pay — and yes, humidity is the actual worst — but hey, at least sandals are cute? To get you in the summer spirit, we’ve rounded up our favorite tanks, beach gear, summer camp throwbacks, and more — all with a decidedly Jewy twist, because, well, obviously. Happy shopping, happy summer, don’t forget to wear your sunscreen!!!
