Favorite Pins pt.9 – Gingham

I purchased a gingham dress a few months ago and it just didn’t look great on me at all. I get so envious when I see people wearing the print and it just works for them. I put together some of my favorite looks from my Pinterest person style board. I really want to buy the pants in image 6 for the fall and blazer in image 1. I think I might give this look a try again in the fall. This summer I’m really into bold prints and bright colors.

I eventually need to stop buying summer clothes and look into transitioning my closet. I can picture myself wearing the pants in image 6 with a lightweight sweater and cute loafers. And I’ll probably pair the outfit with some accessories from Baublebar. Which item is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.

One piece swimsuit trend – Nordstrom finds

One pieces are everywhere right now and I want to buy a few for myself but I’m not sure it’ll work with my body frame. I’m not uncomfortable with my shape or anything but some bathing suits look better on other people.  I think the last time I wore a one piece bathing suit I was probably in elementary school. Brands like Topshop, Ted Baker, and Dolce Vita are making gorgeous designs and styles and I linked some of my favorites below. Nordstrom has an endless selection of one piece bathing suits. My favorites are number 2 and number 6. I like my bathing suits to stand out and those two would look great with tans.

The Metallic Dolce Vita one is so bold I might have to buy that one when it goes on sale! The Ted Baker ruffle one-piece (number 3) is perfect for a chill beach day with your girls. Orange might be my go-to color for summer!  What do you think? Which ones are your favorite? Let me know if the comment section!

Beach day essentials



Hello June, and helloooo beautiful weather! The weather is slowly getting warmer so it’s time to prepare for beach days. When it comes to packing for the beach you always need simple items that can easily slip on and off like espadrilles or sandals. I recently bought these yellow espadrilles from Soludos. A slip-on shoe is perfect for the warmer months and very easy to wear.

I want to buy a new bikini and I really like the crochet look.  It’s not a new trend but it’s still good to have multiple bathing suit options. Shirt dresses could be another alternative for a beach cover up. I wouldn’t wear this Olivia Palermo shirt dress after I get out the water but I would wear it to the beach. I’ve been eyeing it for some time now so I might buy it soon.

Another beach item you MUST have is a sun hat. During my trip to Florida I desperately needed something to cover my head and I regret not bringing my hat with me. It really does work wonders and you can enjoy your beach day without getting extremely hot. I keep gravitating towards stripes lately and this Lovers and Friends skirt from Revolve is perfect if you’re planning a trip with your boyfriend to The Hamptons, or the Cape. Honestly it works wherever there’s beach houses and restaurants really. Pair it with a white cami and some wedges and you’re good to go.

Lastly, every beach trip needs the perfect beach bag. I just bought a straw beach bag from loft a few months ago and I can’t wait to use it. I usually put my stuff in a really big tote bag so it’s refreshing to finally own an official beach bag. What are some of your beach day essentials? Comment below and tell me what’s some of your favorite things to bring along.
