Top 12 most worn spring & summer items

Screen Shot 2020-05-12 at 6.05.36 PM

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I feel like things are slowly getting back to normal – hallelujah! My family and I went out to dinner this weekend for Mother’s Day at a new place in Memphis called Porch and Parlor. If you’re in town, you need to try it, and I suggest ordering the fontina and truffle mashed potatoes, delish!

Today, I wanted to share my top 12 most worn spring and summer items from over the years. Most of these pieces are classics and go together, nothing too trendy you’ll feel silly wearing seasons to come. Some are splurges, but like I said, you will be wearing these items over and over again. When trying to decide if something is worth splurging on, I look at cost per wear. The more you wear the item, the lower your cost per wear will be.

Friday Finds: Beach edition

fridayfinds

Today I want to share with you the bathing suits I took to Mexico! All are fabulous quality and worth the investment. I know bathing suits have gotten crazy expensive recently, but I have found the best fit when I’m willing to splurge. Fit is EVERYTHING especially when you’re laying by the pool or beach, jumping in the water or playing sand or water sports. We don’t want anything slipping!

Don’t mind our goggle marks, but I took this one piece snorkeling!

Henry’s swimsuits: 1 and 2.

I’ve had the red one piece for two summers now, and it’s been a staple on all of my beach trips. For one, I love having a one piece that I can throw on if I get burned. Mine isn’t reversible, but the one I’ve linked is! You get two swimsuits in one! I got the lavender bikini this year, and I love the coverage it offers. It’s hard to find a bikini that you don’t feel like you’re popping out of, so I highly recommend this one. I opted for the hipster bottoms instead of the side tie.

Friday Finds

I want to start a new segment on my blog entitled “Friday Finds.” Here I will share my favorite items of the week. They may be new items, a restaurant I tried, or a piece of home decor. Who knows… I hope you ride along on this adventure with me.

North Star Stud Earrings

I’m obsessed with these diamond and starburst earrings. They come in 14k yellow, white and rose gold. You can wear them everyday or dress them up. They are $240 a pair.

Textured Stripe Swimsuit

I love that the one piece is back in style. First of all they are just so easy to wear. No slips will happen when you’re all locked into this swimsuit. I love the bow detail in the back, too.

Memphis residents and tourists have a new place to hang out! RailGarten, located in Midtown, has something for everyone. From the ice cream parlor and cocktail lounge to the indoor ping pong bar and the outdoor sand volleyball court. There is even outdoor music and the largest tire swing that even the adults will want to swing on. I can’t wait to go back!

Red Stripe Denim

Screen Shot 2017-04-18 at 9.17.36 PM

This twist on your average white denim will make your spring and summer looks. Pair with any blue button down or a ruffled blouse, and you’ve got your summer go-to look.

Ferris Wheel Tee

Okay, how cute is this embroidered tee? Tuck into a denim bottom, slip on your Adidas tennies or favorite mules and you’re out the door.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what else you would like to see here.

 

Spring Break Necessities

Thank goodness spring break is here! It’s about that time of the year when everyone needs a little break, and the beach and warm weather sound pretty delightful. Wherever your travels may take you, you need to look fab. With the help of these pieces, you’ll standout.

You’ll of course need a great swimsuit or two and a flowing dress to go out to dinner in. A pair of sandals can take you from the sand to a casual dinner. I’m getting excited just writing this – Key Largo here I come! Where are you going?
