Summer Staple: Bucket Bags

Old Navy Bucket Bag with Tassels

For the longest time, I stewed over the bucket bag.  I loved the idea of it — the nautical inspiration, the relaxed shape — but I never was able to commit.  It was definitely uncharted waters for me and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on something I wasn’t completely sold on yet.  I mean, we can’t all shell out $6,000 for a bucket bag, am I right?

It wasn’t until recently that I finally pulled the trigger on the trend and I’m in love!  When done right, the bucket bag can be classic, playful and practical (it fits all my things, including my DSLR!).

So in the spirit of sharing, I rounded up my favorite bucket bags for you!  Whether you go with something minimalist, bold or boho, I think we can all agree that there’s something for everybody in the mix.  Happy shopping and happy weekend!

I might’ve been all about spring layers last week, but this summer, I’m looking for a one-stop-shop kind of outfit.  I’m talking maxi dresses, rompers, and as of late: jumpsuits.  Whether you go with a printedblush or bold little number, they’re both the foundation and the finishing touch of your ensemble.  Check out a few ways to wear a jumpsuit this season and let me know which look is your favorite!

Outfit Planning: Beach Bound

It’s quite likely that as you’re reading this post, I’m soaking up the sun somewhere on the beaches of St. Martin … probably in a neon swimsuit, a large floppy hat and oversized sunnies.  Just your average Friday, right?  Well whether your plans involve the beach, the pool or a picnic blanket in the park (aka NYC’s version of laying out), I rounded up a few of my favorite swimsuits and coverups.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
