:: Elephant March into Summer: Espadrilles & Stripes ::

Hey all!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about the first day of summer! It’s been a couple of years since I last took the summer off, and I’m looking forward to dedicating some time to developing the blog. I’m hoping that by the fall, this little guy will have a brand new facelift!

Tomorrow, is the last day of school and if you’ve been following me on Instagram you may know that I sort of started celebrating early. A couple of months ago, I purchased this ‘Seas the Day’ straw hat from &Apparel, and I highly recommend that you check out there entire line of embroidered hats if you’re in the market for one (or two!) this summer. Generally, these babies run mega-expensive, so I was stoked when &Apparel launched their line of great quality sun hats at much more affordable prices.

LOFT has had nothing short of amazing sales all month long and I had to have this pom pom straw bag and these adorable elephant shorts as soon as I saw them. I’ve been experimenting with pattern play a lot this season, and stripes tend to be my go-to summer print. An old pair of espadrille wedges from Ann Taylor and this striped zipper top made for a perfect oh-so-ready-for-summer-vacation look!

Loft always has a great selection of summer shorts (and amazing flash sales), and this season has yet to disappoint. Here are a few of my favorites below. I am in love the scalloped pair and will definitely be purchasing myself a pair soon.
