A Few More Summer Things

While I spent a chunk of yesterday dreaming about the type of fantasy summer vacation I’d have wearing a wardrobe of new Chance clothes, there were still a few summer things I would add to my packing list:

These cute sandals from Gx by Gwen Stefani:

I love the pop of pink!

Have you noticed how hot everything rope/tassel is right now? All of this is from J. Crew.

These tortoise chandelier earrings are my favorite:

I haven’t tried these (yet), but Wolffer’s mini ciders also look like a fun addition to any summer event:

Chance Co. Summer Essentials

Chance really gets summer staples right. 

The predominantly red, white and blue hues also hit an appropriate note.

Known for their striped shirts, Chance’s triple stripe version is so, so up my alley:

Pixie tee, a patterned peasant blouse and a beach cover up would round out a vacation packing list:

If you can bear to actually use it, here’s a cute picnic or beach blanket to bring along:

J. Crew Shimmer Sweater

This J. Crew iridescent shimmer sweater is something I’m excited to wear for dinners or other night-time events this summer:

The weave is loose and the cut is flattering. It’s hard to see just how sparkly it is, but it really shimmers.

Here’s a close up:

This also comes in a champagne color, but I liked the steel gray. The only caution I have is that the open weave could easily snag on jewelry, so I’ll have to be on high alert when I wear it.

Summer Skirts

These casual summer skirts have really caught my eye lately. They’d be perfect for our upcoming tropical vacation.

These high-low styles are my favorite. Both are from Athleta.

Shorter, but extremely cute, and less than $20 at Old Navy:
