Style Crush: Poppy Delevingne

Always put together and looking fabulous, Poppy Delevingne is the ultimate British beauty. Her outfits look so effortless yet they have so much thought put into them. I also love that she always seems to have some kind of a statement in her looks. Whether it's a metallic shoe (like in the last picture) or a bright raspberry lip. Poppy is definitely at the top of my list when it comes to style crushes.

Dress: J.Crew (old) |  Denim vest: J.Crew | Sandals: Target | Clutch: J.Crew | Sunnies: RayBan | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: Stella and Dot |
To me, there's nothing more summery than an airy white dress. This J.Crew dress that I've had for a couple years is my go to summer dress, perfect to pair with wedges or flats. Since it's been so humid and hot recently, flowy and airy materials are necessary. I also love bright pops of color when wearing neutrals so this j.crew clutch is perfect! The bright lime and the white color combination is so fresh and it's even better that my mom was able to monogram it for me. Pays having a mom with monogramming capability!

Beach Essentials

Hi y'all! Since summer is still in full swing and I'll be heading to the beach in a couple weeks I figured I'd post my beach essentials!
1) Obviously the very first essential is a good swim suit! I love j.crew bathing suits for many reasons but the very first reason is because the suits are very well made. I have a couple of their bathing suit tops and I wear all the time and surprisingly they're still in perfect condition. I adore this sea horse pattern and there's nothing more classic to me than navy and white. PLUS it's on sale which makes the suit that much better!
2) To me finding a good cover up for the beach is very difficult! I'm still on the hunt for one but I love this OndadeMar cover up. Something about the combination of the white fabric and the airy texture draws me in!
3) A bright beach bag is another major essential for me. The Lilly Pulitzer Shoreline tote is so ideal for the beach! There is a big pocket inside and the inside of the bag is lined so even if you get water or sand inside (which is inevitable) it cleans up nice and doesn't ruin the look of the bag. I'm obsessed with their Let's Cha Cha print and the bright colors always put me in a good mood!
4) Last but definitely not least is a stylish sandal to wear while lounging poolside. I love my original Navajo Jack Rogers but I'm too afraid to wear them to the beach or pool because I would hate to ruin the leather. That's where the Bahamas Navajo Jelly sandal comes in! The sandal comes in three different colors and you get the look of the traditional Jack Rogers Navajo sandal but since it's in jelly form it's totally acceptable to wear to the beach because the shoe can't get ruined by a little sand or water!
What are your beach essentials?
