Madewell Sustainable Swimwear – Second Wave

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:

Sydney Beach House Tour

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:

Those views are everything! I love how the furniture seems to frame the ocean.

End of Summer Fashion Trends 2018

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:

End of Summer Fashion Trends 2018

 

  1. stylish leather backpack – love this!  love the color!  navy is a great color to help transition from Summer to Fall
  2. nautilus shell earrings – I always love that the nautilus seems to represent a never-ending Summer!  Something I would put my vote in for!!
  3. high tide book – my new favorite coffee table book takes amazing shots of surfers in some unexpected places
  4. moonstone cuff bracelet – moonstone is a gemstone you can wear any season and it seems to fit right in
  5. seersucker tumbler – we’re all on that reusable straw kick, this just takes it to another level (and it’s sooo cute!)
  6. monogram trinket dish – because if you have all these accessories you’re gonna need a place to put them!
  7. sunglasses – I love how these are half acetate and half tortoise shell, super perfect for that Summer/Fall transition
  8. bikini top / bikini bottom – I’m a little obsessed with the deep sea print on this bikini.  I’m also a lot obsessed with high-waisted bikini bottoms right now (or rather have been for the past few years!).  The ruffle on the straps just seals the deal for me!!

What to Wear in this August Heat – Stylish Summer Outfit

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!

 

What to Wear in this August Heat - Stylish Summer Outfit

 

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!
