STYLING ADVICE

Who would have guessed this straw tote would end up being my favorite purchase of the summer?! To say I’m in love would be understatement. I’m completely obsessed. I had initially bought this tote to use as a beach bag…but I’ve been getting even more use out of it as a daily handbag. The shape and material make it the perfect little accessory for summer.

I stumbled across this straw tote on Etsy – while browsing the selection of handmade bags by Brunna Co. I first fell in love with the style…and second the story. All Brunna Co. bags are made in Bali, handwoven by local artisans using traditional techniques passed through the generations. This particular straw tote is handmade with natural water hyacinth straws for a unique and one of kind accessory. It’s the perfect beachy/boho inspired bag for summer!

BUYING TIP

What’s best about purchasing items from Etsy is the shopping experience. It’s a great opportunity to work closely with a brand and often times have items customized to fit your needs. Brunna Co. offers many versions of this bag – including different colored Pom-Pom options or none at all! Feel free to shoot them a message requesting your preferred style!

STYLING ADVICE

Summer fashion for me means anything nautical….and nothing says nautical like stripes! This cute little blue & white stripe dress was exactly what I needed for the season; summery, off-the-shoulder and super comfortable. It’s made of a cotton blend material that feels almost like a sweatshirt. You’ll want to spend all day in this dress!

I also love the length. It’s not your typical short summer sundress or your everyday maxi. This mid-length curved hem falls somewhere around your calf… so regardless of your height, this length should work for you. Wear this dress to a summer picnic, a day on the boat or a casual night out. I’ll definitely be bringing this blue & white stripe dress on all our summer vacations!

BUYING TIP

One of my biggest pet peeves with off-the-shoulder pieces is that they don’t stay off the shoulder! There is nothing more annoying that constantly having to adjust your neckline. The off-the-shoulder elastized cap sleeves on this dress actually stay off the shoulder. One less thing you have to worry about throughout the day!

STYLING ADVICE

Every once in a while I purchase something outside my comfort zone….and in this case it’s a floral kimono. I don’t consider my personal style to be feminine – I never wear pink and I typically stay away from floral patterns. But every once I find an exception… today is one of those days. I completely fell head over heels for this multi-colored floral  kimono. I love the vintage feel and fun bright colors. I knew I’d be able to work this gorgeous piece into my Summer wardrobe!

It’s official, embroidery is EVERYWHERE this season! I’ve been trying to think of the best way to incorporate this trendy little detail into my wardrobe. Tops, denim, bags and even bathing suits are all embellished with this trend for summer. As someone who prefers to stick to the classics, I opted for J. Crew’s take on embroidery – a vintage inspired blue & white embroidered top with tassels! It’s a casual, low-key take on the trend that fits seamlessly with the rest of my summer wardrobe.
