a few of our favorite (summer) things

June 13, 2019

Sure, we could go on and on about our favorite summer trends—from bold prints and strappy sandals to wide brim hats and maxi dresses, summertime is a great time to indulge in your style. But all things fashion aside, summer offers many other reasons to get excited. Swimming, camping, hiking, and, oh yeah…ice cream!

In preparation for the launch of this warm, sunny season, we reached out to our cabi Account Managers, known as CAMs around the cabi Home Office, to find out what they love about summer. Our CAMs are integral team members who support all of our cabi Stylists, ensuring they have everything they need to serve their clients. They work a lot of magic behind the scenes, so they know all the ins and outs of seasonal style.

They’ve told us their favorite pieces from the Spring 2019 Collection, as well as their favorite summer activities. Spoiler alert: almost everyone is looking forward to enjoying some juicy watermelon, and now that they mention it, so are we! Check out the mini interviews below to learn what our CAMs love about this season. As a bonus, we’ve included a master playlist of all their favorite summer hits. Blast it at your next pool party or BBQ!
