25 Warm Weather Wants

The weather the past week has been glorious! I’ve pulled out my shorts and sandals, we’ve grabbed drinks and dinner outside… it’s just been all around great! This perfect weather has made me SO excited for a few upcoming warm weather trips- one to the beach for my birthday and then our honeymoon in less than a month. I cannot freakin’ wait!!! Today I wanted to share some warm weather clothing and accessories that I’m loving. Some I already own and a few others I’m thinking I might need to order!

warm weather trends

  1. WICKER CIRCLE BAG | Last week I posted about spring bag trends & if this bag had been available then I surely would’ve included it! It’s so on trend and it’s less than $60! Perfect with any outfit.
  2. LINK DROP EARRINGS | These lightweight earrings are so gorgeous and I love the mixed colors.
  3. STUDDED SANDALS | I just ordered these and I’m anxiously waiting for them to be delivered. I just know I’ll be wearing these with everything this summer.
  4. BARRETTE | Ok y’all, the barrette is making a major comeback! I love this option for when I want my hair out of my face but don’t necessarily want to commit to a hair tie. If only they had been this cute back in the day haha!
  5. BLUSH MIRRORED SUNGLASSES | I think these blush mirrored sunglasses are the cutest. I also like the fact that they’re affordable!
  6. BOATER HAT | I have the older version of this boater hat and it’s the BEST. It actually stays on my head and goes with everything.
  7. METALLIC SANDALS | I got the brown version of these sandals a few years back and have worn them endlessly during the warmer months. When I saw they came in an updated metallic version I immediately scooped them up. They’re so comfortable!
  8. GRAPHIC TEE | I can’t pass up a cute graphic tee. Looks cute with boyfriend jeans or denim shorts!
  9. FLORAL PHONE CASE | I tend to change my phone case with the seasons (anyone else?!) and I like the floral print on this one.
  10. QUILTED PACKABLE TOTE | This tote is SUPER lightweight and makes a great travel or everyday bag. It comes in so many colors and the best part is it’s easily packable!
  11. SCALLOP SWIMSUIT (TOP/BOTTOMS) | This suit is similar to a designer one, but a fraction of the price! It comes in quite a few colors and fits true to size.
  12. PENDANT EARRINGS | I bought these a few weeks ago and have worn them a few times since. They’re not heavy or oversized, making them easy to wear for long periods of time.
  13. ESPADRILLE SANDALS | I’ve had these sandals for years and although they’re not well loved by Nick or my family (keepin’ it real!) I LOVE them! It looks like they’ve added a slightly higher heel so they’re less “flat” which is a good change.
  14. HEAD WRAP | Head wraps are really big this season and there are so many gorgeous ones out there! They’re perfect for keeping your hair back by the pool or beach or even as a chic accessory to any outfit.
  15. STRAW CROSS BODY BAG | I’ve mentioned this bag a few times, so I should probably just pull the trigger already haha! I holds a good amount of stuff and they’ve updated it to include a cross body strap.
  16. DENIM SHORTS | Finding a good pair of denim shorts is harder than you may think. Nowadays it seems they’re all really distressed, really short, and really expensive. Like when did all those changes take place haha?!
  17. TRUFFLE CLEAR TRAVEL BAG | I love these bags because it’s easy to keep your bag organized while being able to see whats inside. These are TSA approved for traveling, which is a great perk!
  18. BEACH HAT | I’m obsessed with Eugenia Kim’s hats but they cost a pretty penny. When I stumbled upon this one I assumed the price was wrong. I love the colorful chevron band on this one.
  19. PINEAPPLE STUD EARRINGS | Don’t these scream tropical vacation?! They’re such a fun pair of earrings!
  20. DAINTY LEAF NECKLACE | This dainty palm leaf necklace could be worn daily in the warmer months. It would even look cute with a swimsuit.
  21. PALM PRINT SARONG | I’m all about sarongs when on vacation. It’s an easy, chic way to cover yourself up. I immediately fell for this palm print one.
  22. STRIPED BIKINI (TOP/BOTTOM– LESS EXPENSIVE OPTION HERE & HERE) | I had eyed this suit for quite a while and I grabbed it a few months back for our honeymoon. It is SO cute in person and I love the style of the top and bottom. I typically wouldn’t spend that much on a swimsuit, but I had a gift card and decided to treat myself 😉 I linked a similar, less expensive version that is just as cute!
  23. STRIPED SHIRTDRESS | I’m a sucker for stripes any season, but even more so in the spring and summer. This easy striped shirtdress is a tried and true throw on and go option! It could be worn to lunch, as a swim coverup or out to dinner with wedges. The price is great & it comes in 3 other colors.
  24. TIE FRONT WHITE TOP | This is a classic in my closet and the tie-front is just too cute. I also have this tie front top (a little less expensive) and love it as a swim coverup!
  25. STRIPED COVERUP | This coverup is so adorable and the bright colors are so cheery!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario
