Summer Scarves

There are times when I love trying on what seems like my whole wardrobe, testing combinations to find the perfect outfit for an event, and then there’s my normal reality when I have 15 minutes to pick out what I’m wearing.  For those days, I usually go simple (printed pants or jeans with a solid top).  I always like to top it off with something more noticeable though, like a big statement necklace, an embellished headband or my latest addiction – summer scarves.

There are so many ways to wear them (around neck or head are my favs) and they can instantly amp up what would be a pretty plain look.

Beach Towels

As Memorial Day weekend is approaching, I’m already mentally packing for a little Santa Barbara trip I have planned.  Beach bag, sunglasses, bathing suits – I like these mini vacations to be as “no fuss” as possible, leaving my enormous makeup bag and curling iron at home.

Even though my best dresses and finest jewelry probably won’t make the cut, I do like to find ways to accessorize while still being low key.  I was passing by a small boutique recently and saw a really fun, colorful beach towel.  I decided then and there to start looking for an upgrade to my hand me down towel for this upcoming Summer season.
