Warm Weather Wants

The weather here is hot-hot-hot and it’s making me crave getaway! No matter if your calendar is filled this summer with beach getaways and pool days, or you just want to look chic while trying to beat the heat, I’ve got you covered with these warm weather wants in today’s post! I have been loving bright colors and a mix of closet classics lately and I think this collage reflects exactly the items I have been loving!

I hope y’all have a great weekend! Any fun plans?! Nick has been traveling from work and comes home late tonight, so I plan on relaxing until he gets home. Tomorrow I have a fun styled shoot planned with Draper James that I can’t wait to show y’all! It’s going to be suppper cute. 🙂

  1. PRINTED KIMONO | I have been loving kimonos lately! They are so easy to throw on with any outfit. This one can even double as a swim coverup.
  2. STRIPED BEACH TOWEL | I have this beach towel and I firmly believe it’s one of the best! It’s thick and the colorful stripes always help me identify my spot on the beach haha! 🙂
  3. STRAPPY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS | I couldn’t be more obsessed with these! They are the cutest and would go with everything from shorts to sun dresses.
  4. ROUND TOTE | I always love using these rattan style bags in the summer!
  5. OVERSIZED FLOPPY HAT | I am never without a hat when I’m at the pool or beach. I love how large this one is to protect my face and chest from the sun.
  6. STRIPED MIDI SKIRT | This skirt is so breezy and would be a cute paired with a tank and sandals in the warm months.
  7. BLUSH STATEMENT EARRINGS | I think these earrings are adorable!
  8. BLUSH LINK NECKLACE | This lightweight necklace would look great with so many outfits this summer. It’s such an easy accessory to add to an outfit.
  9. WHITE EYELET MIDI DRESS | I am a sucker for white dresses in the summer and this one is calling my name! I am obsessed with it!
  10. LILAC SWIMSUIT TOP | I love a good basic swimsuit top and this color is gorg.
  11. LILAC SWIMSUIT BOTTOM | I love that this brand is making swim now! Thank goodness for a full coverage bottom haha!
  12. STRIPED SCARF | I know, not what you were expecting to see in a warm weather wants roundup right?! I like wearing scarves, like this one,  in the summer when I know I’m going to be in a restaurant or a store where the AC is blasting!
  13. CACTUS FLOAT | Nothing better an ultra fun float for a pool day!
  14. BLUE & TAN STRIPED SHORTS | These are a great alternative to wearing denim shorts and these are so darn cute.
  15. TEXTURED SLIDES | These just scream nautical to me! I love the rope detailing.
  16. LEOPARD ESPADRILLES | *insert heart eye emoji* because these are PERFECT! I am in love with these and they would get so much wear, even into fall!
  17. BLUE BEADED STATEMENT EARRINGS | I ordered these recently and cannot wait to wear them! They would be great with casual or more dressy outfits.
  18. PALM PRINT COSMETIC BAG | I like having these type of bags in my larger bags (or pool bag) to keep things a bit more organized.
  19. TORTOISE CAT EYE SUNGLASSES | You can never have enough pairs of sunglasses (in my opinion at least ha!) I like having a few cheaper options for when I’m at the beach or pool.
  20. COLORFUL STRIPED TANK | I stumbled upon this top when searching for something and thought it was SO adorable! I ordered it and can’t wait to wear it. I think it would be perfect with white jeans or shorts.
  21. COLORFUL CORAL TASSEL EARRINGS | These were also in a recent order and I can’t wait to wear them soon.
  22. GOLD KNOT SANDALS | The knot detail on these sandals are sooo cute. These are a great basic summer sandal that would go with a lot.
  23. PLAID POOL BAG | I scooped this bag up recently for pool & beach days and can’t wait to get it in! I like that it has short straps and a long strap for carrying.

  • 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

Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
