Wet Swim Suit Pouch, Bag All | Designer Scrunchie, Dannijo| Sunblock, Super Goop

A catch all for organizing your giant tote. A place for wet swim suits. A travel make up bag. A diaper & wipes holder. A night out clutch.... Pouches are a summer favorite. I use them in every bag. They keep my life organized and chic. Shop some summer favorites for yourself below!

Editor Favorite: Cult Gaia

 

I discovered Cult Gaia years ago while searching for some cool headwear for an Ariana Grande photo shoot. When I reached out to them, they were so nice and willing to send tons of their amazing head wraps for us to borrow. They instantly became a personal favorite of mine and have now grown into a cult (ha! no pun intended) favorite of every accessory lover's closet. Each piece is super unique and high quality but without the insane price tag. Currently these are the bags I'm loving and trying to decide between, but take a look and shop for yourself if you need to step up your accessory game.


Mommy & Mini

Twinning with your mini isn't always the easiest when trying to find the perfect styles that compliment both of you. But when it comes to coordinating... well that's a whole different story. You don't have to match exactly to coordinate together. Swim suits are the perfect way to mix and match. Whether it's pattern mix, colors that play well together or full on twinning you can't go wrong with these new Mommy & Mini vibes. 

Black, White & Neutral

 Mixing prints, solids and any kind of swim suit shape can never go wrong in a neutral palette like this.

Neons

 Neons are the easiest to play with when it comes to coordinating. As long as you style with grounding colors like navy and olive tones the brights will pop even brighter!

Stripes, Florals & Everything in Between

 You can pattern mix like crazy if you coordinate yourself or your mini in something with pale or nude color tones. It's on trend and so easy to achieve a mommy and me look with very little effort!

1 Dress x All the Ways

The best kind of dress is one that can take you from day, night, afternoon, after work, after beach, whatever. And even better... one that is super affordable to help justify those accessory splurges. This striped maxi dress can be worn everywhere this summer. Styled high or low it quickly transforms into whatever look you need on that day and has all the "go with the flow" vibes you want to live in throughout the summer. It's easy and chic so just keep it on repeat!

ON-Duty Style

 These days when I'm not on set working, you can find me chasing Isla around the city and that's when I'm really ? "On Duty". My off duty looks these days have changed into super skinny jeans and a great heel to go out ...and not be spilled on. My "On Duty" look is still chic (I try) but always comfortable. My go to is a great pair of joggers. You can find sleek fabrics and fits that are cool but still have the functionality of comfy sweats. I'm currently loving these neon stripe  Zara joggers , but we've rounded up some other must haves below and in THE SHOP!

Wish & Tell

I usually have my eye on a handful of things at all times that I'm loving, saving up to buy or hoping someone will buy for me as a gift! My friend Pippa gave me a great tip. She told me she keeps a year round wish list and she makes sure her husband always has an updated version during special times of year! I immediately started my own... It's everything from jewelry, bags & major wishful thinking items... to candles, cookbooks and small items. Sometimes I buy things for myself or sometimes I eventually get over them. Other times, it's great to hand off around my birthday when I know my guy may be struggling to pick up all of those hints I'm dropping.

My wishlist changes constantly but here are a few goodies that I'm currently coveting going into summer...

Wish List Layout.jpg

1. Summer Fridays The "must have" instagram famous face mask everyone is talking about.

2. Janessa Leone hat. Because even my little peanut head wants to get in on the cool girl brand.

3. See By Chloe A Chic wedge that I can wear with anything, and roll over my ankles in all summer long.

4 .Misa A party dress I can dress up or dress down and have on repeat for the next 3 months.

5. Pirette Frangrance Oil A beach-y scent that will make me feel like Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush.

6. Shashi Bright bracelets to layer up my arms. 

7. Banner Day The new classic striped tee (covered in cherries)

 

The New Freakum Dress

Wanna look like a smoke show but you're over the same old skin tight dresses?  You're in luck because there's a new freakum dress in town. It's all about being hot in a fresh way. I'm in love with this Zimmermann number. It's over the top femininity mixed with a sexy neckline and a nipped in waist is why I can't get enough. The trick is all about mixing soft textures and colors with a shape that screams sexy.... Oh hiii deep V! So instead of turning heads with some cleavage try a few other tricks to mix it up!

Style Tip: Don't forget the Double Stick Tape and good posture on this one!

your new wardrobe staple

I love classic wardrobe stapes that are basic but have an element of surprise or a detail that makes it unique. I'm living for the luxe sweatshirts and hoodies happening right now. A peak of a shoulder, some sequins, or ruffles... the sweats game is perfect for looking chic & staying cozy.

EDITOR PICK: Wanderluster

I discovered Wanderluster Jewelry years ago when prepping for a fun colorful photoshoot that called for lots of gems and chains. I knew I wanted something that was a good price point but at the same time lux all on it's own. I am still in love with this line today. If you're looking to splurge or just looking to treat yourself (and not skip next month's rent), Wanderluster should be at the top of your list!

Little Gifts For Everyone You Heart

Some love shopping for gifts, some hate it. I happen to love it.  I'm the girl that loves to surprise a co-worker with a coffee in the morning and giving cards for no reason. So when I find sweet small gift-able items I always keep a running list so I don't forget.

Babysitters, besties, the love of your life or... yourself! Everyone deserves a sweet surprise. Here's a quickie guide to show the love!

Baby, Heart Sweater | Mom, Diffuser | Babysitter, Tumbler |

SHOP THE TRUNKS

Every Fashion Editor has the task of getting all of those precious pieces from each shoot back to their designer homes. I'd be feeding you a bunch of lies if I told you we didn't try on some favorites and make our own personal wish lists every now and then. Access is the biggest perk of the job after all.

I couldn't help it. Right as this dress was ready to be picked up she just jumped out of the trunk and begged to take a selfie together.  The love was mutual so obviously I threw it on and took a quick pic. I really need this dress in my life, but I think my Amex would disagree. So we parted ways. Good news is, it got me Inspired for some Americana slash fringe-y vibes for spring.

Florals For Spring. Groundbreaking, I know....

OK hear me out... Yes, florals for spring isn't the newest idea. In fact, it's pretty old. BUT, right now I'm really in the mood for florals with a sexy twist. Like this off the shoulder Brock Collection top. Super sexy, but granny type of print. Ya know? I mean, yup it's weird but I like it so I'm going with it. Also it doesn't hurt to add some badass hoops to seal the deal. So go cut up your grandma's house dresses, or just shop for some of my other faves... or not. But I feel like you'll be happy if you get on board! 


(Non) Color Story: Chic Neutrals to add to your everyday

 Jeans & Tee are the go to mom uniform. Even if there's not a bright color jumping out, it doesn't mean you won't find pieces that stand out. A lace detail, embellishments, and ruffles are a few catching my eye these days. Always classic. Always Neutral. Shop for the ones I'm loving right now!

GLITTER... all year round

When I saw these Isabel Marant glittered heels I knew it would be one of those things that if I didn't buy them I would seriously regret it. I also knew I'd never ever get sick of them and would probably still be shoving them on my foot in 20 years. I think everyone should have a pair of shoes living in their closet that scream "party". You'll wear them to dinner, to weddings and who knows maybe even with sweatpants... a little sparkle (or a lot) is timeless, seasonless and will always make you happy.

CAMO

To me Camo Print is a neutral and is forever in season. Some seasons it's stronger than others and this past winter felt like one of those. I found this NSF ribbed knit gem right before there was a chill in the air and it's been on a steady rotation in my closet (even in spring!) ever since. From sweaters, hoodies & bags there's so many options it's hard to choose.
