I love these Summer outfits from Free People! Especially ones that have a casual look but still feel put together. As much as I love casual outfits, I’m not down for looking sloppy. Check out the one-piece striped jumper/romper? Not sure what to call it but I think it perfectly achieves that casual yet put-together look!
This is what I’m talking about!
Loving this look too!
Denim skirts are such a classic Summer piece
Happy Friyay everyone! I just wanted to pop in with a post about one of my favorite patterns, stripes!! What’s more perfect for Summer than a classic striped dress? It’s my go-to on a hot Summer day. Striped dresses are great for bbq’s, birthday parties and days out on the boat. Dare I say it’s the new little black dress? Check ’em out:
- v-neck striped dress
- blue striped maxi dress
- striped eyelet dress
- luciana striped maxi dress
- vintage pink mama mia dress
It’s probably no surprise to you that I became obsessed with this small Spanish seaside home! with its turquoise shutters and turquoise doors. #GiveMeAllTheTurquoise I love the bold doorway against the bright white stucco exterior. What more could a girl ask for? Take a look:
This kitchen has me dreaming of open shelving and I’m kinda obsessed with that curtain? too!
I love the mixed prints and patterns of the pillows
Straw hats and baskets oh my!
Rustic headboards will always have a place in my heart ❤

Today I’m sharing my Wednesday wishlist. Which includes two trends that I’ve been loving; palm trees + straw accessories for you and your home! Has anyone else jumped on the straw trend that’s been happening? I’ve talked before about how much I love the straw shoe trend that’s been happening, in this Wednesday Wishlist blog post. I’ve discovered that unlined straw shoes are unfortunately not very comfortable, but if you stick with a lined pair you can’t go wrong. Take a look below at the latest pair I have my eye on:
- rattan accent chair
- gold palm tree necklace
- round straw bag
- palm tree stud earrings
- palm tree trinket dish
- straw sandals
- palm tree candle holders
- gold fringe top
Who’s ready for the holiday weekend?! I know I am! I’ll be boat side by this time tomorrow and I can’t wait. I forget when Summer officially starts but for me, Memorial Day weekend is the start of Summer. (And it doesn’t end till September) Who’s with me on this?
This morning I wanted to share some of my fashion favorites for May! I’ve been finding it helpful to map out an inspiration board for outfits (especially when packing) as it offers a visual guide. Summer vacations are right around the corner and unfortunately I’m the type of packer if I don’t plan my outfits in advance, I end up with more bottoms than tops or vice versa! Take a look:
beach tote – I’m obsessed with the color and those rope handles!!
palm tree stud earrings – been wearing these on repeat while I wait for things to warm up
pink sunglasses – I love the shape of these, classic with a twist of chic
endless wave ring – the hammered finish on this ring adds a touch of sparkle
beach iPhone case – I like my iPhone case to match my vacation 😉
linen sandals – just slip these puppies on and go!
cutout halter dress – organic cotton everything, please
My latest style obsession is something I like to call, “coastal minimalism”. It takes a minimalist’s approach to the whole coastal home style. Part of why I’m loving it so much is that it’s effortless and allows for more space and light in a home. For that very reason I’ve taken on a huge Spring purge, in order to try and live with less. I started with my closet and literally went through EVERYTHING and was able to get rid of sooo much stuff that I just wasn’t wearing. I’m currently on part 2 of my purge, which means attacking the basement. I’m about half way through it and I’ve already found loads of home decor pieces that just aren’t my current style. My goal is that once I’m done purging my home of the things I don’t care for anymore, I’ll be left with everything that I truly love. When dealing with coastal minimalism, the main focus is on love. Only having items in your home that you adore and tossing out the rest. So if you love it, keep it but if you bought a vase just to fill a space on a shelf, then it’s time for it to go. Check out some more examples of coastal minimalism and gather some ideas from this beach home in Costa Mesa, CA.
Gain more space on an entryway table by placing sconces on the wall instead of table lamps. Also having just a few items that you love instead of filling the entire table, gives you room to unload as you walk in the door.
Placing plants in white or glass containers allows you to bring in pops of color while still leaving the room with an airy feel.
Don’t overcrowd a space with more places to seat than you really need. Being able to walk through a room without bumping into furniture can be a luxury in today’s world.
Bringing in elements like wicker, sea grass and rattan help incorporate a coastal feel with minimal pieces.
Not overcrowding the kitchen sink. When was the last time you only had one or two items surrounding the kitchen sink? I’m completely guilty of hoarding plants and fun antiques in my kitchen! oops!
An island that you don’t have to clear off before cooking, sounds nice!
You’ll notice that the colors don’t change much from room to room. Lots of white, pops of sea blues, mixed with greys and natural elements.
Stripes are a must in a coastal home!
