poolside essentials.

Hello friends,

Now that it’s officially beach/pool/water weather… I am soaking up all the sun before my highly anticipated summer vacations! In the meantime, you can find me posted next to the pool.

I’ve put together a few of my poolside favorite essentials for the summer. Here they are:

  1. Books: I have always been a bookworm, but adult-ing makes it hard to squeeze in time to read books. I am trying my best to add that to my life, as I know I feel so much more accomplished finishing a book than I do a tv show 🙂

    I was sent the new book, Oola For Women, which will be released this Monday, May 2nd! This book is super motivational and applicable to all women, and looks at 7 key areas to help you better your life: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, & Fun. I love how each chapter focuses on a key area and is written in an easy-to-read style. It’s also filled with lots of #girlboss quotes to help you step it up no matter where you are in your journey of life. You can find it on Amazon as well as here.

  2. Floaties: Okay..how fun are all the different shaped floats that have been coming out this season? I don’t know about you..but kids these days have the coolest inflatables!

    I am SO obsessed with this pizza floatie! I’m pretty sure we just had normal ring ones when I was a kid. Just because I am now a…biggER kid.. does not mean I will miss out on this fun-ness! Give me all the food-shaped floaties please and thank you!

  3. Sunscreen: SPF umm..100? 🙂 Skin care is so important no matter the time of the year. Protect yoself!

    Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

boho summer

Hello loves!

With fall fashion sneaking back up on us and making its yearly appearance, I can’t help but notice all the plaid and boots popping up everywhere. Although my closet mostly consists of summer apparel (because, let’s face it.. I am definitely a California girl),  there is something special about cozy knit sweaters and all the fall accessories that have a place in my heart. Hey, I’m all for the pumpkin spice lattes (#basic), and booties, and scarves and… okay I think you get the point.

However, I will use every opportune time to wear my boho dresses from Shop Bella Blu  before the weather forces me to put them away. Here are a few staples that can easily be dressed up/down. Throw a oversized plaid shirt on top and you have successfully transitioned to fall! 🙂

The lace detailing on this dress are my favorite part, and put a whole new spin on LBD. I’ve definitely already paired both a plaid and a denim vest over it, but sometimes simple is best.

My favorite dress out of them all is this neutral gray fringe back dress. It just screams me with the detail in the back and the color that just goes with everything. It’s so versatile and I am in loooooove with the fringey back!

All dresses were paired with my favorite shoes of the summer which was less than $35 which you can find here. The lace-up shoe trend seems to be everywhere I turn! But I’m sure we are all wondering..where have they been all our lives?! 🙂

Til next time..

Xoxo,
