Summer is officially here! (insert all the happy emojis!) With that being said, if you are like me, you are probably scrambling to find a new bathing suit, beach bag, and everything else that is a summer time necessity. I wanted to let you all know that I have had the BEST luck finding all the pieces I need for summer from the Asos Swimwear Section of their site. Picking out a bathing suit can be an incredibly daunting task but I got really lucky with Asos and didn’t have to return ANYTHING! I got this super cute suit, tie-dye beach bag and these amazing jeweled sandals that are so comfortable and only $45!
So go check out ASOS- hopefully you will all have as good of luck as I did stocking up for summer!
Okay friends- let’s talk about one of my favorite trends of the summer…tassels! I am loving everything with tassels! I found this great tote bag and clutch at Nordstrom and for such amazing prices! The bag is a really good size for the beach, gym bag, baby bag or a even an everyday purse if you like to carry a lot of things. Plus, it’s only $39 so it’s a steal. And how cute is the clutch?! I love the beading and the tassels of course! It’s only $25 and the quality is great. I love pairing fun, bright accessories like these with simple tops and cut offs like I did here- keeping the focus on these fun pieces!
Also while shopping on the Nordstrom website I found these tassel sandals that stopped me in my tracks! Tassels and light pink? Yes please! They run TTS but if you have a high instep, I might recommend sizing up half a size.
Ps. I just noticed as I was writing this that the beige version of the tote bag is on sale for $19! What a steal!
Okay let’s talk summer accessories for a minute. What I look for when buying summer accessories is- 1. will they ‘go’ with a lot of my outfits and 2. are they affordable? If I am also looking at shoes then 3. are they comfortable? Nordstrom is always my first stop when I want to find fun and cute pieces. I have mentioned before but this tote is the BEST for summer I love the scallop detail and pink interior, plus it’s less than $50! I also had to snag these bow slides from Nordstrom. I already own the pink ones but I figured the white would go with EVERYTHING. They are so comfortable right out of the box- no need to break them in at all! Trust me when I say you need one, if not both of these pieces for summer. Plus a fun statement necklace wouldn’t hurt to throw in your cart either!
If you read this post– you already know I am big into the tassel trend as far as spring trends go. So when I came across this peachy top on the Nordstrom website, I bought it right away! Dare I say, it’s my favorite top so far for spring?! I love the color, the fit and of course, the tassels! Nordstrom is always my one-stop shop when it comes to transitioning my wardrobe from one season to the next!
Another absolute essential that everyone needs for spring/summer is a good pair of white cutoff shorts. I say good pair because let me tell you, they aren’t easy to find! Luckily, I did the searching for you and found this pair and they are THE BEST. For one, the fit is perfect. No need to size up or a baggier fit and for two, they are not see through at all. I absolutely do not like when you can see the interior pocket lining on white denim! Oh, did I mention they are only $39?! An absolute steal!
Lastly, scalloped anything is a trend I love every year. This tote is SO stinkin’ cute with the scalloped edging and pink interior! It’s also made of durable faux leather that wipes clean so it’s perfect if you have kids who like to make messes (like mine!).
Okay- I LOVE this outfit so much, I just could not wait to share it with you! I was perusing the Nordstrom New Arrivals (honestly, I do this daily) and I found the most perfect pair of cut-off shorts for spring and summer! At first glance they just look like a great pair of cutoffs but on closer look you will see the crochet detail on the sides. I love it! It’s subtle and trendy but not over-the-top. So, they were really my starting point for this outfit.
In keeping with the somewhat boohoo vibe for the new season, I found this tank top with the tassel hem and thought it would be a great addition. Again, it’s trendy but not in your face or over the top. I find that Nordstrom has the biggest selection of any retailer for new pieces for the new season. If you want to go super trendy, they have it. If you want to go for things that are more classic, they have it. If you want a mix of things from preppy to super fashion forward- they have absolutely the largest selection of all of it.
You may have seen these slides on previous Instagram outfits. I can’t stop wearing them! They are SO comfortable and go with everything in my entire spring/summer wardrobe. I will be wearing them constantly. Lastly, you may have noticed my new tote! I buy a Tory Burch tote every season and this is the one I picked for spring! Again, it goes with EVERYTHING. This is a recurring trend in my wardrobe, especially when it comes to my accessories. I almost always opt for neutral accessories so they will carry me through the seasons and I feel like I get the most bang for my buck.
