Friday Favorites | Volume Six

Happy Friday you wonderful people! It’s the first official weekend of Summer and I couldn’t be more excited. Honestly I can’t believe it’s already Summer! This year has flown by, but I’m glad to get some fun in the sun. The weather has cleared up here in Dallas and I plan on reading a few new books from my Summer reading list lounging out by the pool. Maybe a little shopping, as I’m on the hunt for the perfect Fourth of July outfit! Anyway, keep scrolling to see what Friday Favorites I’ve picked this week and let me know which ones you’re diggin’!

Friday Favorites | Volume Six

Favorite Summer Accessory: Straw tote bags, gingham prints and tassel earrings are definitely some of Summer ’17 biggest trends so far. But another trend that I’ve seen popping up a lot lately is neck scarves. I may be late jumping on the band wagon, but I am seriously loving this trend! Don’t dismiss this “ladies who lunch” staple as stodgy. When paired with more casual tops like a striped shirt or crew neck sweater, it adds just the right amount of polish.

Favorite DIY: Brittany Watson Jepsen, founder of The House That Lars Built, is a super talented designer, crafter and blogger. Well, just in time for July 4th, she made some amazing Lady Liberty Floral Crowns and I absolutely love them!

Favorite Beach Scene: With the Summer season officially here, Glitter Guide threw a “beach-side fête” with the help of Jacquelyn Kazas from Beijos Events and Alatheia Hart of Art of Being Female. Wicker lanterns, moroccan pillows, hints of blue . . . There’s something so magical about Summer entertaining! The California-cool vibes trend started out strong in Spring ’17 and is still making a huge impact on the design world this season. And the boho neutral aesthetic with pops of woods and blues is the definition of Cali-cool! I just love how they put thought into every little detail from the invitations and menu to the bohemian pillows and serving ware. Read the post for tips on how to throw your own beachy (literally, on the beach) dinner party.
