Beach Picks

Sunglasses

I always tell my friends to pick out sunglasses that are super fun, block the sun and aren't expensive. The worst is when you get to the beach and the sand scratches the lens. So, I buy a few cheaper pair for the summertime - that way I'm not heartbroken if anything happens to them.

Straw Beach Tote

Somethin' cute to throw your stuff in. It's easy to carry around, big enough to put things in but not too big that you feel like you're lugging it around.

Bohemian Cover-Up

Not all coverups have to be t-shirts and jean shorts. I mean really, jean shorts + sand + wet bathing suit is not my favorite combo. That's why I choose a flowy dress/type coverup for the beach.

Birkenstock Sandals

Sandals are also tricky. They need to be easy to wash up, preferably cute but also comfy in case you wanted to take a walk to the pier or go on a bike ride to lunch.

Classy One Piece

Two pieces are so fun but I'm thankful that one-pieces are back in! Especially at the beach: it doesn't give the ocean any opportunity to take away any pieces (hehe). This one combines a little bit of fun and a lot of class. I love this color - super flattering on any skin tone or body shape.

Sunscreen

DON'T FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN! Here's the deal: not all sunscreens are actually helping your skin. In fact, most have chemicals in them that are actually doing more hurt than good to your skin. I've found a sunscreen that I love and think is so super safe for the beach + whatever your day looks like. It comes in a lotion and sprays!!

Baby Wipes

If you've been around this tribe for a while, you'll know why I love these so much.
1. They smell so good
2. They can be used for any circumstance: to remove that little bit of mascara from under your eyes after swimming, refresh your pits, wipe off the sand + sweat, add a little bit of moisture back to your legs after getting some sun
3. They don't leave a stickiness to your skin, your skin is left so so soft!

Must have! Unfortunately, these aren't available online (only available at some Target on the baby isles with other wipes + diapers).

Happy Day 😂

What we think we look like while eating popcorn vs. what we really look like 😂 
Today I lived in this shirt, binge watched “Riverdale” on Netflix while working and ate popcorn by the handful for lunch. Made me feel really silly but really happy 🍿🎥 Gotta do whatcha gotta do 🤷🏼‍♀️
This shirt is as comfy as pjs and super fun to layer PLUS it’s only $34 (originally $68) 😍

In Portland

Portland’s quirky but not super weird, colorful but still tasteful and has the perfect blend of local favorites and classics when it comes to shopping.
Seriously, you must add Portland to your bucket list if it’s not already there.

A shortsleeve sweater (like this one) is perfect for this misty + foggy, chilly summer weather. I don’t mind the rain when it means I can wear my favorite rain boots 🙌🏻

Safe and sound in PORTLAND! So excited about venturing around a new city with a close gal friend of mine! 

If you’re going on a trip soon, you NEED to know about Barefoot Dreams sweaters. They’re the softest sweater you could ever imagine which makes the perfect loungewear for a flight. These leggings have side pockets for holding your phone, boarding pass and ID. Genius! + gotta have those tennis shoes in case you need to run to your next flight.

My Nordstrom Sale Picks

If you haven't heard already, Nordstrom is hosting their Half-Yearly Sale and it is FAB! I filtered through all of their options and have a really great narrowing of items that are 1) under $100 and 2) I've either actually bought or would buy.

All of these links are "clickable" so click on the product you're loving to shop it right away! Hurry! The sale only goes until June 3!
