Around this time every year I get anxious for warm weather & long days! To me there’s nothing better that spending my days soaking up the warm weather and sunlight! I have quite a few trips planned this summer, so I’ve already been perusing the internet for cute swimsuits, travel bags, and of course, the cutest pool floats & towels! Today I wanted to share my “warm weather wants” with you!

P.S. Happy weekend! Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? Our engagement photos got rained out last weekend so they’re rescheduled for Saturday evening! I am really excited to work with our photographer 🙂 I also can’t believe it’s April tomorrow… my birthday month & the 6 month countdown to our wedding. Time flies!

ONE | I am naturally very fair skinned, so most sunless tanners either streak or look orange on me, but this mousse from St. Tropez is so good! I have used it a few times and really like it! Since my wedding is this fall I am trying to avoid the sun (just say NO to sun spots and sun damage!) so I’ll be relying on this a lot this year!

TWO | I have been carrying Barrington bags for years. I have a weekender bag in another print but I simply couldn’t resist the monogram stripe collection….and I definitely couldn’t resist adding my “new” initials to it! It can hold so much and is a really great, sturdy bag.

THREE | This romper is actually a swim coverup (but could honestly be worn as a regular romper!) It can be tied  different ways and the back is soooo cute.

FOUR | These blush sunglasses are freaking adorable, right?!

FIVE | Are these fringe tassel earrings not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?! They come in six colors and are such a fun touch for summer outfits.

SIX | As I said earlier, I am all about avoiding the sun (especially my face and chest) so this wide brimmed hat is going to be super handy this summer.

SEVEN | One-piece swimsuits are making a HUGE comeback and this printed swimsuit is adorable.

EIGHT | This bag has been on my wishlist for a while… I’m obsessed. I love that it has the scarf tie and a long strap, so it’s more functional!

NINE | I love high neck swimsuits and this black one is a classic!

TEN | I ordered these wedges recently and I really, really like them! They’re a great neutral and are very comfortable. Highly recommend!

ELEVEN | This bag tag is a cute way to keep track of which bag is yours when traveling! It comes in a set of three, perfect for carry ons and personal items too!

TWELVE | Y’all…. it’s a donut towel. I mean, does it get any cuter?! I love it!

THIRTEEN | Last year was the year of the swan float. This year is the peacock float is giving the swan a run for it’s money!!! I just love it and it’s less than $40!

FOURTEEN | I got these slides in the mail last week and I’ve worn them three times already. They’re similar to the Hermes slides, but at a fraction of the cost (less than $80). I will be wearing these all. summer. long.

FIFTEEN | This floral suit is so feminine and cute. It ties at the back, so there’s no awkward lines.

    I am craving the sunshine and warm weather more than ever now that April starts tomorrow. The cold and rain really drags me down. I probably need to move to the south where it is warmer!
