summer ’17 essentials: part 2

Quote of the day/my life:
WELL DRESSED, NEVER STRESSED

Welcome to PART 2 of my summer essentials series! Check out how to stay pretty this summer in Part 1 here. : )

TO WEAR

Americana
You can’t escape good ol’ American style. I go full on Patriot in my previous post here : detailing all my favorite stars and stripes this season.

GOLA sneakers
You guys had to know sneakers would be part of this list. I recently discovered this British based sneaker brand… and fell in love.

So in love, in fact, that when my mom asked if I wanted a little grad gift, I asked for this pair of sneaks.

Their more popular designs feel like if Adidas Gazelles and Puma Classics had a love child (aka beautiful). They even have a line of sneaks, called the Coaster, that are like Converses… but way cooler.

Gold jewelry
I admit, I feel naked without my stacks of gold necklaces, rings, and bracelets that I wear 24/7 (just check any photo of me.. I always have them on). I love gold jewelry year round, but the crisp look of gold on tan skin is my absolute favorite.

A few months ago, I was searching for a gold chain to replace a broken one, and came across AVNIS on Etsy. Based out of Israel, the shop carries GORGEOUS gold pieces that I’ve ordered myself, as well as some of my friends!

The product quality is awesome, and the items ship fast considering its international. 10000% worth checking out… my favorite item that I NEVER take off is this opal necklace!

LA Hearts Seamless Cheeky Bikini Bottom
I told myself I was not allowed to buy anymore swimsuits this summer………. okay so maybe I bought 2 tops and a new one piece last week… but now I’m done!!!!

My no-new-swimsuits ban stems from the number of various tops and bottoms I bought last summer… the majority being from Pacsun’s online site.

Pacsun has a variety of brands to skim through-from low cost teeny tops to pricey high-end one pieces. LA Hearts is definitely on the less expensive side, but to my surprise, the product quality is still awesome.

If you’re looking for a bikini bottom that:
1. doesn’t squeeze your hips and make that uncomfy little muffin roll: nothing wrong with it!! I like my hips, just not when they’re squeezed like the string around a piece of meat.. ha
2. gives the perfect amount of cheek: enough to be flirty, but not too much you’re feeling weird at a family beach
3. comes in a bunch of different colors and prints: I like to mix and match all my tops/bottoms : )

..then you need to order these bottoms ASAP. After I got my first pair, I went back and ordered another 2 pairs-like that perfect.

You might have to search a little for colors and prints, and even beyond Pacsun’s site, but I promise they’re worth it!!

sunshine always.
