Summer Wish List + Kicking Off the Memorial Day Sales!

It should come as no surprise to you that I love color! All the vibrant, brilliant colors that come with summer, just keep getting brighter and better! Even though the first day of summer technically isn’t for a couple more weeks, Memorial Day weekend is usually the unofficial kick-off to the season! The pools are finally open, everyone’s out buying sunscreen and (read: aloe, if you’re me!)

A hat is always a necessity when you’re outside and bonus! It’s chic too!

You’d have to be living under a rock to not know that the off-the-shoulder look is pretty hot right now! And by hot, I mean, everywhere you go it’s off-the-shoulder this and off-the-shoulder that. Dresses, tops, rompers, jumpsuits, you name it. Baring it all is in, shoulders that is, let’s not get too carried away! 😉

How adorable is this cover-up and at $24 it’s a steal! Speaking of a steal, these super cute mirrored sunnies are only $12!

This simple striped dress would be perfect for a graduation party or cook-out. You could even throw a blazer over it with heels and wear it to work.

This cute little overalls skirt and striped skirt are great for a casual everyday look.

It wouldn’t be summer for me, if I didn’t have some turquoise accessory on. I bought these earrings last year and I wear them all the time! I love that they go with everything!
