Summer is officially here, and as California girls, we don't need an excuse to throw a get-together with grilled grub and refreshing cocktails. To accompany you to your all-American backyard bash, we present six must-haves. Just don't forget the sunscreen!

1. Diptyque's new fragrance, Eau Rose (opens in new tab) ($98) is the perfect light and floral summer scent. We snatched it up during recent shopping trip in London, and have been spritzing it ever since.

2. These metallic-plated ASOS Sandals (opens in new tab) ($58) are a simple-yet-stylish (and let's not forget comfortable) addition to your warm weather wardrobe.

3. We are always looking for the perfect pair of denim shorts, and this Ksubi style (opens in new tab) ($299) might just be "the one." Slightly frayed and faded, they're ever-popular with Aussie models.

4. We can always count on Joie for stylish and romantic basics. This soft, striped Dillon Top (opens in new tab) ($78) gets an update with black and white color-blocking.

5. If Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (opens in new tab) ($46) is good enough for Gwyneth Paltrow (opens in new tab), it's good enough for us!

6. This Low Luv Bangle Bracelet (opens in new tab) ($48), designed by supermodel Erin Wasson, has a distinct Egyptian feel, but is simple enough to be worn time and time again.

Best friends and blogging partners Roberta Oglakchya and Rachel Hurn-Maloney founded The Ray and the Ro (opens in new tab) to show off stylish looks, share their wishlists, and break down runway fashion.
