Currently Craving: Springing into Summer Favorites


I'm not quite sure how it's June already, but man am I excited for summer!! The weather is finally warming up, the pool is almost ready to go and the sun is shining more and more! Summer shopping is in a pretty close tie with holiday shopping for me - between grabbing gifts and summer must haves, there's so many fun things out there this season. I've found a ton of fun finds at all different prices in the last month - here's the ones you need to shop:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12

1. Striped/Lace Tee: I just grabbed this tee at 50% off - it's still on sale too so grab it while you can! It's so pretty and I'm hoping it's just as pretty in person - it's the perfect summer top!

2. Round Tortoise Sunnies: these are a bit of a splurge for summer, but they're SO cute and I'm loving the round lens trend. I never thought I could pull them off, but I tried them on in-store and I actually loved them. They're super flattering for a lot of face shapes, so if you've been wondering if they'd be a good fit for you, I highly recommend trying them. If you want a less expensive option, these are nearly identical and under $10!

3. Flamingo Bottle Opener: the perfect summer addition to any and every bar cart. It's a must have this summer!

4. Eyes & Lips Jewelry Box: I bought this as a gift for a friend and filled it with some fun jewelry and it's honestly one of my favorite gifts I've ever given! The lips/lashes tee that hit the style world by storm last season has expanded, and you just can't deny how cute it is.

5. Clarins Self Tanner: I've tried quite a few different self tanners over the years and now more than ever, I'm very careful about my skin in the sun! It's better to enjoy the sun without worrying about burning or harmful rays and wearing sunscreen, then faking the dark, sun kissed tan later. I love this lotion because it's easy to apply and seriously, very hard to mess up (tan-wise). It's a very light lotion so it gives you a nice, natural glow that doesn't look at all fake.

6. Navy Embellished Heels: hands down my FAVORITE shoes I've ever owned! I love these sooo much - I wasn't sure how I felt about them when I first saw them online, and then I kept thinking about them and knew I had to try them! They're so beautiful in person and probably the most comfortable heel ever. They're not too high and I walked around in these for 2 hours and didn't have any pain! They come in black too, but you cannot pass up these fun colors for summer!

7. 'Eat Well, Travel Often' Mug: I love this saying and need this mug! So cute and while I'm sure we're all in the same boat of having our mug cabinet(s) overflowing, what's one more? ;)

8. Striped Scalloped Shorts: so soft, so fun and so classy! These would look so cute paired with a simple white tee and some wedges for a summer party. In love!

9. 'Garden' iPhone Case: this is one of my favorite Kate Spade prints and with how protective these cases actually are, it's worth the price!

10. Distressed Crop Jeans: these are my favorite jeans this season! I grabbed a second pair because I wear them so much - this boyfriend style is so comfortable and fits so well, and the distressed look is perfect for casual spring and summer days.

11. Jeweled Hoop Earrings ℅: you can never have too many statement earrings, can you? Ha! I love these jeweled beauties soo much, I just got them and I'm so excited to wear them! They're not heavy either which is perfect for sensitive ears like mine.

12. Monogrammed Cosmetic Bag: I've always wanted a monogrammed cosmetic case and I'm not sure why I never thought to get one before, but I found one I love and I'm so excited for it to come in! It's the perfect size and great to travel with. You can't go wrong with monogrammed anything - I love this as a gift idea, too!
