Friday Finds: Ditch the Flops

I hardly ever wear flip-flops, normally only to get a pedicure and sometimes not even then. I came across these sandals last night at Forever21 and ordered the other two colors today! The perfect {stylish} alternative to flip-flops, and a must have for spring {and summer}! 2015-03-20_09-03-19

Hats Off

Or better yet, hats on. I’ve talked about hats quite a bit on the blog, I’m a huge fan! But the summer months call for a hat. Not only stylish, but they serve a purpose, as much-needed protection from the sun. A big pair of sunnies, a wide brim hat and your set for fun in the sun!

Pillow Party

My favorite way to brighten up my house is to change-up the throw pillows. So simple, yet a real difference maker. I made a trip to H&M this weekend with my mom and scooped up several summer styles. If you are ever in New Orleans, I highly recommend checking out the home section of H&M, lots of fun, inexpensive items for your home. You can shop online too! The pillow covers start at just $5.95!

Beach Bag Packing

I cannot believe Memorial Day Weekend is this coming weekend. I’m looking forward to a little fun in the sun and {mentally} my beach bag is already packed. Most importantly sunscreen, some fun sunnies, a great hat and something cold to drink. Can’t forget the tunes either, how cute is this beach radio?! What are your must have items for the holiday weekend?

Free People Sunnies

A few weeks back I wrote about being a bag lady, and this week sunglasses are top of mind, another item which I feel like I purchase often. What’s funny about my sunglasses collection is my least expensive pairs always get the most compliments. So funny how that happens. I can’t get enough of a Free People pair I scooped up last year, that I went and got another pair. They have some of the best sunnies. Here are a few I’ve rounded up, and all just $18!

ten under $10 {beach edition}

I have several beach trips coming up and need to refresh a few key pieces worn out from last season. I’ve rounded up the best beach buys all under $10! How fun is the pink beach bag? And who can resist a new pair of sandals?! Now if this unseasonably cold weather would just excuse itself, the beach is calling.

savory summer

How is today August 1? I feel like Memorial day was last week. My summer to-do list is pretty lengthy for the end of summer to be quickly approaching. I still have a few seasonal recipes I must try. I better start now, because with how fast time is flying by Christmas will be here before we know it.
