We’re headed to the beach… tomorrow to be exact. This beach season, I’m investing in a new bag that will carry me through lots of sunny summer days by the pool, at the park, or on the sand. I’ve gathered up a few of my front runners for best beach bag from Nordstrom. What I’m looking for is multi-purpose bag that’s fabulous, fun and functional. I think all of these bags above fit the bill. If you’re headed to the beach, try one of these bad boys. Lastly, be sure to pack your SPF in any bag you pick. Nothing is more important than that!

BACK TO BASICS

CARDIGAN | TANK TOP | NECKLACE BRAELETS | NAIL COLOR | JEANS | BAG | HEELS

 Neutral hues will always be basic, yet totally fitting for any wardrobe. This light and open cardigan is easily my favorite sweater, especially when I am on the go. It’s not only comfortable but so soft and easy to wear with a number of tops in my existing wardrobe. When I paired this cardigan with two simple colors, i.e. black and white, it was just the classic, laid back look I was going for. To add a little pizazz, I styled a statement necklace and printed clutch into the mix. Not to mention, these thick-strappy sandals add a little height and fun too!

IT’S WORTH ALL THE BUZZ

click + shop each look above 

Today I’m sharing more summer must have styles! Anthropologie has long been a favorite of mine, but I haven’t always been able to spend my hard earned money on some of their pieces. I’ve learned recently that if you find something really special, you save for it and you take great care of it; clothing included. So when it comes to shopping at Anthro, don’t just aim to buy everything. Really hone in on what suits your style, and pick what would create a special look for you. I’ve found that investment pieces, like the ones I’ve bought recently at Anthropologie, are not only quality pieces but statement pieces as well!

THE KILLER CASUAL COMBO

SHIRT DRESS | GLASSES | WATCH | HANDBAG | NOTEBOOK | SNEAKERS

Take two of your favorite things (i.e. a t-shirt and a dress), put them together to make a casual yet super gorgeous statement when you’re on the run! This might be one of the easiest yet most adorable looks for the season, especially when paired with your favorite little sneakers. I’ve become obsessed with the new collection of New Balances so I’ve obviously paired them with this sweet striped number. Get ALL your outfit details above and get going in your favorite shirt dress look this summer.

SUMMER STYLE SECRETS

Secret #1: The Summer dress is the best and easiest way to achieve an effortless and chic summer look. Secret #2: When it’s hot as you know what in the concrete jungle (NYC) or down south (back home in KY) the best tip for staying cool is to wear a breezy and beautiful dress, DUH! For the longest time, dresses were just not my thing. I’ve always been a shorts girl, until I moved to the Big Apple. There’s something so classic yet still cool about a dress on summer’s hottest days. So I’ve rallied up a group of my favorite summer dresses (long, short, solid and printed). Plus I’m sharing a little bonus time link to my Mom’s #1 make-up choice, Clinique. She swears by it – and mom’s are always right; right? Enjoy!

Life-N-Style No. 2

A Luxe Life

Full Of Sweet Little Things

Thank goodness this post series is back, and you all loved the first one! Like last time (see HERE) we’re focusing on a laundry list of sweet little details that make living and life a lot more fun. I’ve gathered a roundup of creative yet totally doable ideas for all of you to incorporate into your own lives and style (hints the name “Life-N-Style”).

As always, find me on Instagram @LexWhatWear for more life-n-style.

1. The Tastiest Summer Cocktail

Who wouldn’t love a little sip of this raspberry limoncello prosecco? Thanks to Damn Delicious I’ve scored the recipe for my NEW summer go-to drink, especially for my patio parties. Plus, I’ve found the cutest serving glasses for your own prosecco recipe HERE.

2. The Sweetest Summer DYI

I am constantly searching for little summer DYI projects and I think I finally found the perfect weekend how-to for all of us! Thanks to eHow this stamped watermelon doormat project will have us entering and leaving the house in true summer fashion.

3. The “It” Beauty Secret

As of late, I’ve been hearing of this “it” beauty mist made of green tea and lavender. When I saw this post by Lulu & Georgia, I knew I had to give it a try. Find the easy steps to creating your own green tea and lavender mist HERE for the most refreshed look your skin has seen in months.

4. The Must Try At Home Workout

Let’s face it, not all of us have enough time or money to spend at the gym, so I’ve found a temporary solution. Head on over to PopSugar Fitness to get even more details, but find below the simple steps to bringing the gym and a good workout to the comfort of your own home! PLUS – get a look at my favorite workout pants HERE.

5. The Delicious & Fun Arrangement

I’m so incredibly obsessed with keeping fresh flowers around the apartment. The perfect bundle can brighten any space and mood. Combine fresh flowers with fresh fruits, and you’ve got yourself an even more beautiful arrangement. Take note of this lemon citrus vase for your own tabletop decoration seen on Blooms by the Box.

Pretty Pops of Pink

SHOP THE LOOK: EARRINGS (made by me) | JACKET | TOP | SHORTS | BRACELET | SANDALS

A little pink tassel never hurt anyone, especially when it’s accompanied by a cute summer ensemble and a J.Crew print you can’t live without. This might as well be my summer go-to look, minus the jacket when NYC becomes too humid to function (i.e. “concrete jungle”). Long story short, a white short can be paired with a number of tops, printed or not. Style similar boyfriend-style jean shorts with any color in your wardrobe, especially pink for a little pop! I’ve linked all products and / or similar options above.
