Recently a good friend made the move to Maui (from the east coast!) and ever since then I’ve been Hawaii dreaming. You can bet your bottom seashell I’m going to go visit her. Apparently she has avocado trees growing in her backyard. Anyhoo, her newest adventure got me thinking about what life would be like living on Maui. So I decided to do a little research into what a Maui beach home is like. (And it did not disappoint!)
Talk about curb appeal!
I’m swooning over that light and those views!!
I’m in love with the beach boho vibes of this home. Oh yeah, did you notice the driftwood table lamp? I’m in love with that too
Can they Air Bnb their home? I need to stay here!
Views you can only get in Maui!!

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July weekend! Aren’t long weekends the best?! To kick off the start of a new week after a long holiday weekend, I wanted to share some new Summer fashion trends. Summer dresses to be exact! Check out the five different ways you can style your Summer dresses:
Similar to macrame, crocheted dresses are making a come back!
Looks just like the throw my Grandma had on her sofa! Yum!
You know when you’re a tourist in a chic new country and you want to look cute but also not end up with blisters all over your feet? This look’s for you!
Getting fierce with flowers, this look is everything!
Hippie maxi dresses are cute again! Wear this when you want a sweeter floral look.
Jumpsuits are great for Summer travels because you can wear them from day to night
Bolder patterns like this one and animal print are here for Summer! But really, did they ever leave?
I love a good all white house! Just give me all white everything and I would be so happy. This lovely Mediterranean inspired home made me realize something though. Could I live with open shelving in my kitchen? It’s been a big trend this year and when it’s done well, it looks really really good! But realistically could I maintain an effortlessly styled open shelved kitchen? Because the open shelves in this kitchen are on point! but not so overly styled that it looks impossible. In fact, it looks very achievable. Take a look:
I love this dining space! All the white and plants
Even all white homes can offer some hygge!
I’m in love with these vases!!
Could you live with open shelves?
I told you they look good!
What’s one of my favorite go-to items in my wardrobe? Jeans! They only come second to stripes. Today I wanted to talk about the different ways we can style our jeans for Summer. Have you notice the floral jeans trend happening right now? It’s so cute!! You can get the look in a variety of ways from printed denim to embroidery to even patches! Yes, patches are back in style. Check it out:
Do denim dresses ever go out of style? This cute denim dress from Madewell
Effortless jumpsuits are the perfect piece to slip on for Summer. This one from Madewell
Add a button up and pearls to balance out those ripped jeans. From Reformation
How good is this beach house?! I’m loving all the white with pops of rustic wood accents. Oh and how much do I love the mermaid scale shower in the bathroom?!! Sooo much! There is even more than that to love about this beach house though. Take a look:
I could really use some of those chair/bean bags in my life!
Have you ever fallen in love with a door frame? Asking for a friend.
Built in benches feels super Mediterranean!
This bedroom gives me all the good feels!
How in love am I with that shower?! Let me count the ways…

Wondering what to wear for Summer? Don’t fret! Today, I’m sharing my wish list and trends for Summer. This makes for an effortless Summer outfit since you can just slip everything on. I love that about Summer! Outfits only get easier as the temperatures get warmer.

What’s better than a beach house scattered with anchors, pops of turquoise and vibrant plant life? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! Which is why I fell in love with this Aussie beach house located in Newcastle, Australia. Between the kitchen backsplash and the anchored entryway, I’m not sure what I love more. Check it out:
Love this kitchen!
Great place to store seaside treasures
This place just exudes an effortless beachy vibe
