I got really excited when I heard that Madewell launched a sustainable swimwear line called Second Wave!! All of the super cute swimsuits in the Second Wave collection are made from recycled water bottles. I love that! I want to explore the idea of taking the ocean’s trash (aka our trash) and turning it into something beautiful (but that’s for another time!). In the mean time, take a look at the sustainable chic goodness Madewell is pumping out:
I love all white. All white, all the time. Probably why I fell in love with this Sydney beach house! I love the way the all white decor really makes the green in the plants pop out, as well as the beautiful ocean views!! Not to mention that I’m a little obsessed with the jungle that is outdoor space. Check it out:

This morning I wanted to share some current fashion faves with you for the end of Summer! These are Summer trends that will effortless transition into Fall. Which is always nice to have on hand, pieces that work for more than one season! Yay for your accessories doing double-duty!! I’m also sharing my new favorite coffee table book and a bikini that will work for Winter and Summer vaca. Take a peek:
This is always that time of year for me when it’s the end of Summer and not quite Fall yet but you’re ready to switch things up (fashion wise that is!). So if you’re wondering, like me, what to wear during this period of wardrobe transition, Madewell’s got you covered! I’ve also included some additional faves at the end of this post. Don’t miss ’em!!
Wowza! Does it get hot and humid in August!! Today I’m sharing a few easy peasy ways to beat the heat with a cute and stylish Summer outfit. My secret? Linen, linen and linen! It’s an effortless fabric that only looks better with wear. I actually love it when it gets a little crinkled. No fancy pants here! If you’ve never owned anything linen, let me tell you, linen is pure awesomeness. And the linen you own doesn’t have to stop at what you wear but goes into bedding, napkins and pillows too! All of it is GORGeous!! So go on and drape linen over everything in your life. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
crop top – let that cool breeze hit your midriff people and you will be cooler 😉
linen pants – OR shorts but I prefer pants with a crop top
coral branch necklace – keep accessories to a minimum so you don’t feel weighed down in the heat
sunglasses – thin and light frames feel cooler than chunky larger frames
straw bag – small crossbody bags leave you hands free for shopping and don’t feel as heavy as their big leather counterparts
gold cuff bracelet – choose one or two skinny bracelets and skip the larger statement ones à la Wonder Woman style
espadrilles – I love the easiness of slip-ons and open-toed shoes are a must to beat the heat during August!
