The Denim Short

658304c63c89fe76119f67dcddab6a78

If there is one item that screams “it’s summer” it is the denim short. Style them with a t-shirt, blouse, or as a swimsuit cover-up. They are the key summer piece! And since July 4th is right around the corner I thought it was only appropriate to share my favorite denim shorts from around the web.

at home • Pillow Talk

I love a home with clean, minimal walls and then have accessories that really pop. This pillow would look so great against white walls and a grey couch…eh hmmm, are you listening husband? And the adorable “never ending love story” slogan makes it a really great gift for the newly engaged or married. Or, you know, for that couple that has been married over three years – seriously husband. Are you reading? My birthday is only four months away!

at home • Dash & Albert Dog Bed

Since arriving back home after being gone two weeks, I have spent my days loving on my sweet pup, Annie! The hardest part of travel is having to leave her and the best part of returning is getting to reunite! I absolutely love spoiling her so when I spotted this Dash & Albert dog bed I knew I needed it for her! It is not only super comfortable for her but very chic in the living room!

The Perfect White Tee

I search and search to find the perfect t-shirts. Considering I wear them everyday, I go through a lot. I have tried everything from Net-a-Porter to Forever 21 and have found some decent options. However, my all-time, forever favorite t-shirt, Current Elliott ‘Petit’ Tee (in black / in grey). I want a t-shirt to be flattering but comfortable, soft, easy to maintain, and high quality. The Petit Tee is all of that! While wearing it in LA (where this was photographed) I got stopped by a lady asking, “Who makes your t-shirt? It is THE perfect white tee.” And it is. It really is!

Beauty • Longwear Foundation

The Texas heat has set in which means my make-up melts off. I stumbled upon this MAC Nourishing Waterproof foundation and really want to try it. I have tried MAC’s waterproof products in the past and they worked amazingly! I am hoping this one is no different – excellent coverage that will last all day (even through these hot days). shop it here

Outfits • The Beach Hat

I love milliner Eugenia Kim and her gorgeous creations. And I 100% believe you should pay for an artisans work. However, when it comes down to it, spending $500 on a hat is a bit out of touch. At least for now. Since I still love the idea of her hats I found a replacement, you know, until I can afford the real thing. Introducing, Fleurs de Mer. She makes gorgeous hats that are perfect for a beach get-a-way. And they are under $150! She also does custom hats which would make the perfect gift to your friend, or yourself! 🙂 shop the hat here

Outfits • The Swimsuit Coverup

With a trip to Italy coming up soon I am on the hunt for chic swimsuit coverups. Usually I just wear an oversized button-up  but I want something that screams, “Italian summer.” For some reason, these striped J.Crew pants do that! I think they would be perfect for around the pool or around the town! I just bought a pair and plan to wear it with a button-up and a bright scarf tied around my head! buy them here
