Pom Pom Frenzy

Pom poms are one of my favorite trends of Summer ’16. First we saw them last fall as furry charms on bags, and the trend has evolved into a version reminiscent of the colorful type we played with in arts and crafts as kids! Pom poms are fun and whimsical, and we are seeing them make bright appearances as embellishments on everything from beach coverups to sandals. When it comes to pieces that are super trendy, like pom poms, I don’t like to splurge (as beautiful as these Elina Linardaki sandals are!) That being said, I will definitely be adding a pom pom piece to my wardrobe this summer…blog post coming soon. They are so fun and cheerful you can’t help but smile.pompom 4pompom 1 pompom 3pom pom 5pompom 2Pom Pom Sandals

Beach Coverup

A cute, lightweight coverup is critical for beach days. I stumbled upon this one and it caught my eye because (one) I love anything striped and (two) the neon green tassels were so fun! I wore it to a beach day in the Hamptons a few weeks ago with my friend Helene. I paired the coverup with a straw Panama hat, gold-detailed sunglasses, and a new bubblegum pink bikini. Beach ready!

I think this coverup is nautical, fun, and easy to throw on- plus it’s a bit of additional sun protection! My friend Ari said that it looked like a talis…a joke that was somewhat appreciated (Coachella talis).
