Can you believe it’s almost July? I mean, where is summer going?! My swimsuit was calling my name {from the back of my closet…it’s been a while} so we headed to the beach this weekend and it was perfect. This Lilly Pulitzer suit is one of my favorites and every year the String Bikini Top and Surfs Up Bottom come in a handful of prints. I’m a sucker for navy and white so I couldn’t resist this combo and the pop of coral just adds to the wonderful summer vibe this suit gives. Sometimes all you need is a little salt, sand and sun!

White On the Water

Top: Lilly Pulitzer / Denim: J. Crew / Necklace: Blush Brand / Cross body: Louis Vuitton / Shoes: Target / Watch: Michele

When we use to live in Florida, wearing white was a year round event. Now that it’s summer in the Pacific NW, I couldn’t wait to get into my favorite white skinny jeans and linen top. I love the crisp and light look of a white outfit {especially with a classic brown bag}. My cross body is perfect for running around the city and traveling {you can find preowned versions online} and these flats from Target are under $23 {buy one get one 50% off on select styles too!!}

Printed Pants

There’s nothing better than a great pair of printed pants! Because of the geometric print, I styled mine with a sold white tank and threw on an off-the-shoulder sweater {with texture} and added a pop of color with my flats. These pants are past season J. Crew but I’ve linked similar styles and fits below. My sweater is from Lilly Pulitzer and although it’s not sold on their website any longer, you can still find retailers who sell it {just search Larissa Sweater}.

The T-Shirt Dress

Dress: Lilly Pulitzer / Necklace: Blush Brand / Sandals: Tory Burch / Polish: OPI

I’m all about light weight outfits for these hot days and it doesn’t get much easier than a t-shirt dress. The Christie v-neck dress from Lilly Pulitzer comes in three different prints, but Tusk In Sun is by far my favorite. I paired mine with some nude sandals and the Blush Brand statement necklace to dress it up just a bit! You can see other ways I’ve styled the Tusk In Sun print here.

With so many visitors coming through our doors this next week I wanted to share our guest room with you! It’s my favorite room in our apartment mainly because it’s the only room that is fully complete and it’s pretty much all Pottery Barn {my favorite decor store}.  Erik and I love to travel and our home is decorated with treasures from our trips. The navy accent pillows are from Hawaii and the surfboard reminds us of all the waves we used to catch! Our decanter accessories are custom made and add a personal touch for our visitors. This room also doubles as our office and although its a bit tight, we were determined to have two beds {even if we could only fit twins!} Want more? See how I styled our master room here

Denim on Denim can be tricky but I discovered a few tips that make me want to be a repeat offender with this outfit. Your denim should be different washes {not different fades}. Some say your bottoms should be lighter than your top {I’ve read mixed advice} but lighter denim doesn’t always look great on my curvy bottom so I say whatever looks best on your body type! Also, don’t do a tight top with a tight bottom, too many bad things can happen {were talking over exposure and wardrobe malfunctions} Finally, stay away from anything that looks ‘western’ {save the cowboy boots for square dancing}

Would you believe this blouse is Lululemon?! I couldn’t find an active link online, but you can find it in their outlet stores and it also comes in black. The material is amazing {isn’t everything from Lulu?} and I love the pleated back that adds a super feminine touch to this sporty top. I’ve been wearing my Blush Brand statement necklace all week and can’t get over how stunning the gold edge is against the white druzy!

Bourbon & Boweties makes hundreds of bangles with all different stone and color variations and so many of you have asked where and how to get them. You can order online through their website or visit Nordstrom.com {who now carries them}but your best bet is to always visit a retailer for the biggest selection or you can order on B&Bs Facebook with direct messaging {I usually attach a pic of the bangles I’d like which I find from the #doyoubangle}
