That Summer Feeling

4 weeks ago

You know those moments when you take a step back, look at the world around you, and just feel really lucky to be alive? When everything feels so right and all of your worries vanish? Those feelings came over me yesterday at the beach. Wonderstruck and in awe of the beauty surrounding me. It was the wakeup call I need every so ofen to live more presently and purposefully. As I sat oceanside, I felt rejuvenated on the spot.

I really can’t believe we are almost halfway through the year… it has just breezed on by. I have felt like my life has been a combination of trying to maintain my daily balance. With work (self-employment is an actual rollercoaster), life, self-care, side projects, and ironing out wedding logistics. This spontaneous beach visit was needed without me even knowing it.

It reminded me that I need to step away, disconnect, and marvel in the beautiful world we live in on a daily basis. Summer is the perfect time to be outdoors and reboot so that’s what I plan to do. I’m going to immerse myself into a summer state of mind right now…

A quick note on these pieces I captured yesterday at the beach. SO in love with them all. Especially the wrap skirt, which is made of a cotton/terry blend and is just so flattering. I have been looking for a wrap or something to tie around my waist for beach trips, and this thing is absolute perfection (and unique, too!). I love the tortoise detail as well… it’s a new summer staple for me, for sure. I also can’t get enough of Chloé eyewear right now. So ready for adventure ahead these next few months.

I hope you have the best weekend! x

In case you missed it, I rounded up some of the best MDW sales I found around the web on my sale shopso many good ones! A few things I saw that I feel like can’t be missed–– Simon Miller bags are on sale around the web (obsessed with the black with tortoise handles). Into all things by Nicholas lately (everyone needs this swimsuit). I’m eyeing a few things from Mara Hoffman for my honeymoon. So many beautiful dresses on sale by Self Portrait… great options for wedding guest (putting a post together on this topic soon btw!). Lastly, I am just so in love with those silver Stuart Weitzman heels I got for my wedding weekend… I want one more pair in nude so may get these!
