Summer is knocking at my door and even though spring is beautiful and all that jazz, I’m pumped for some long beach days and time by the pool! Nothing beats one of those days where you spend all day swimming, reading a book under an umbrella, and generally being a summertime bum. This summer I’m feeling bright, punchy pieces that look just as good by the pool as they do strolling into a restaurant for dinner afterwards (along with some fun extras in case you just don’t ever want to leave the sand and surf). Here are a few of my faves to help you #findyourfun!
Since we started traveling with Henry I loooove having a beach tent. Keeps ya cool on the sand and gives the little dude somewhere to play. This one from Shore and Sunshine has been great. If you’re not toting kids a good summertime read is pretty clutch; I’m hoping to get through this one soon! And obviously you’ve got to buy into the pool float craze that’s sweeping the internet — the ban.do heart float is pretty cute!
In the summer, especially when we’re by the beach or the pool, I love style pieces that you can toss on and go, and not worry about looking like a schlub! These colorful little Isabella sandals from Crocs are one of my latest finds, and they’re perfect by the water or heading out on the town afterwards. And bonus — they kind of remind me of my jelly shoe days, but in a grownup way, which makes them even more sweet. (They also have a pair of flats that you should totally peek at if you were into jellies back in the day! It’s like a secret fashion flashback but in the best way.)
When you leave the pool, pair your sandals with a simple, colorful swim coverup that can double as a dress like this one, swipe on a little lip gloss, and hide behind some fun sunnies. Ta-da! You’re good to go, looking put-together, feeling comfy, and ready to go find some more fun.
So what are your summertime essentials? I’d love to know the go-to pieces that you keep in your car or your bag while you’re out and about. For more inspo, hit up the Crocs Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and go #findyourfun! xoxo
