i have a million style post ideas swimming around in my head but can’t seem to pick one idea to stick with so today we’re just going to call this post friday finds. half of the online stores seem to be having sales which means that we’re in transition, they’re getting rid of spring merchandise and stocking summer pieces! it’s all about white, ruffles, wrap dresses, pops of peach, pink and coral, linen and gauze. one of my favorite things to wear to the beach in the summer is an oversize white cotton button up shirt. i’ve had great luck finding them at thrift stores, look in the men’s section. don’t worry if it’s large on you, you can always tie the front up if needed! – joanie

 

J.Crew underwire bikini top ($58) – i bought this bikini top years ago and it’s still one of my favorites. you can shop it by bra size which makes all the difference because small, medium and large just don’t cut it for everyone. i have a large chest and it can be hard to find swimsuits and this one is a winner.

Levi denim skirt ($70) – finding the perfect paid of jean shorts is like finding a needle in a hay stack. i don’t want them too short, or too tight and finding the perfect combination feels impossible so instead, this summer i’m opting for the jean skirt. much more flattering and just as easy to wear!

Embroidered top ($158) – i love all of the detailing on this top, the tiny orange stripe, the delicate ruffle on the sleeve, and the v neck that makes the oversized shape much more flattering. i won’t be spending $150 + on this top but i’m using it as inspiration for future shopping trips.

Loeffler Randall tie sandal ($375) – i don’t own a single pair of Loeffler Randall shoes but i consider myself to be a big fan of the brand and love seeing the collections they put out each season. their colors, gentle use of embellishments and timeless styles are inspiration for shoe shopping even if you can’t afford a pair.

Sandro star top ($230) – i love this oversized star top and it’s be cute with the jean skirt above and also over a tank dress or with a dark pair of jeans to off set the light blue. (also a very chic 4th of july option!)

Pink sunglasses ($118 + 25% off!) – i  love a pair of really light colored sunglasses in the summer and these have a great mix of metal and plastic which makes them more sophisticated than many other colored options out there.

Ruffle wrap dress ($60) – we’re going to feature an entire post on ruffles because they are everywhere right now but i wanted to get this $60 romantic ruffle dress on your radar as quickly as possible. cute with white sneakers, flattering wrap waist, delicate print, it checks all the boxes for the perfect summer dress.

Clare V. canvas tote ($204) – i’ve seen a few girls carrying this bag around LA and it’s so cute and the perfect summer tote. the canvas with the stripe and the size makes it a really versatile, every day bag that will pair with a lot!

H&M high waisted shorts ($30) – shorts are hard to find. i bought these over the weekend because i went out of town and realized half way there that i had forgotten my swimsuit and shorts but it ended up being a win because i love these. high waisted with a little pleating in the front. chic and flattering!
