Hello Sunshine

Necessary Clothing Neon Yellow Dress

It’s been a long time coming, but summer is finally here!  I celebrated the solstice in Chicago with a few good friends this past weekend, but I still have photos to share from my trip to St. Martin in May.

Yellow Summer Dress & Straw Hat

This season, I’m welcoming the sunshine with bright, easy dresses and beachy accessories.  I’m talking straw hats, beaded statement necklaces and a sea-creature inspired arm party.

Nautical Inspired Summer Accessories

I’m also kicking off season with the PopSugar Must Have Box — a monthly subscription of hand-selected items in beauty, fashion, fitness and food.  I got mine in the mail last week and it’s full of fabulous summer essentials.  Use code: JUNESELECT10 to save $10 on a 3-month subscription!
