10 Summer Wardrobe Staples

Happy first day of summer, y’all! Summer is the best for so many reasons, one of them being that it’s by far the easiest season to dress for. Any given outfit really only requires a few key pieces. For instance, a pretty sundress + gladiator sandals + sunnies = blammo, instant perfection! What could be simpler? Here are 10 wardrobe staples that will make getting dressed a total breeze all summer long.

 

1. A little white dress, the summertime version of the LBD. Preferably a lacy one!

2. Nude wedge sandals go with literally everything and make your legs look a million miles long.

 

3. A killer sun hat will instantly put you in a summer state of mind.

4. Breathable linen shorts are a no-brainer.

 

5. An off-the-shoulder top, because I’m pretty sure it’s the law this season.

6. A stylish beach tote to hold all your summer essentials.

7. Giant, glamorous sunglasses. The bigger the better.

 

8. Super sexy white jeans (just don’t leave home without a Tide stick).

9. Some classic espadrilles. I love this striped pair!

 

10. A maxi dress that you can wear everywhere from the beach to the bar.

I’m still in search of the perfect LWD. What are your go-to pieces this summer?

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! Despite some interesting things happening around town (most notably, the Fremont Solstice Festival and Naked Bike Race) I’m looking forward to a pretty quiet weekend. A brunch here, a cocktail there, and if I’m feeling particularly ambitious, maybe I’ll even catch up on Game of Thrones. Do you have anything fun planned? While you think it over, here are a few fun links from this week.

Flourless chocolate cake, trips of a lifetime, coffee granita, how to build your dream closet, and the awesomeness of platonic rom-coms

1. I’m bookmarking this insanely decadent caramel-drenched flourless chocolate cake recipe for my next birthday. Sparklers a must! (What’s Gaby Cooking)

2. If you get bored this weekend, here’s how to create and organize the closet of your dreams. (The Everygirl)

3. This piece on the primacy of female friendship and the rise of the platonic rom-com really speaks to my soul. (The Atlantic)

4. Of the 12 types of trips everyone should take before turning 40, I’ve done 8 so far. Maybe I can combine a few for my next vacation. Solo cross-country road trip, perhaps? (PureWow)

5. I’ve saved the best for last: you can now order granita at Starbucks as part of their new sunset menu! Yummm! (Refinery29)

Have a great weekend!

Beach Bag Bonanza

I may only have three pairs of jeans (all virtually identical), but what my wardrobe lacks in pants, it more than makes up for in bags. Naturally, a good chunk of these are beach bags, since summer’s my fave! Whether you’re a beach bum or planning to spend plenty of time poolside this summer, a cute, roomy tote that can hold all your essentials is a necessity. Here are twelve stylish options that fit the bill.

Beach Bag Bonanza

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve

 

Which one would you pick? #1 and #3 are my favorites – I love those bright colors. Though I could also use a classic like #11 (a total steal at only $23)!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! How was your week? I’ve been feeling so unmotivated lately…I think deep in my heart, I’m really bitter about the fact that I’m an adult and I don’t get the entire summer off anymore. It’s so hard to get anything done at this time of year, am I right? Especially when your Instagram feed is filled with people having awesome summer adventures. I may need to follow people with less enviable lives. Anyway, here are a few fun links to distract you from whatever it is you were working on. Enjoy!
