Summer Style {Friday Favorites}

Summer Style


Happy Friday friends and welcome to Friday Favorites!

Wow, it’s been one long week for me and I have to be honest with you, I’ve had a little writer/inspiration block this week.  I am however inspired this week by all the fabulous summer accessories and clothes that have prompted my summer wish list {and my Pinterest binge}.  I thought I would venture off the path today and share some summer fashion inspiration with you.  Hopefully you’ll see something new that will  need to be added to your list as well.

At the very top of my list is to get my hands on one of these amazing personalized/monogrammed cuffs {and necklaces} from jewelry designer DeAnna Cochran.  My friend Michelle introduced me to DeAnna’s jewelry and I was so amazed by how beautiful and unique each piece is that DeAnna creates:

I just love the idea of having words and names that are important to me monogrammed into these beautiful metal pieces.  They are absolutely stunning and so unique!  I can’t decide which piece I want. Too many amazing choices!   If you want to see more of DeAnna’s work and collection, you can visit and shop her website here.

Next on my list are these fun Lilly Pulitzer wedges:

They also come is gold and silver.  Metallics are everywhere this summer and I just love it:

I love Lilly Pulitzer clothes and accessories and I especially love the fun bright patterns for little girls:

So fun and bright, Lilly’s little girl’s dresses just make me {and my daughter} smile!

Ok, so some of the items on my summer wish list, I have already picked up.  If you haven’t been to Target lately and seen some of their summer clothes, run as fast as you can!  I was blown away a few weeks ago when I went in and saw all the fun patterns and designs for  summer cover ups and casual dresses:

I love this Mossimo “Skater Dress” for $20.00 so much that I bought three of them!  They are the most comfortable dress and I use them for just hanging out or a swimsuit coverup:

By the way, if you didn’t know it yet, Spanx has a line of swimsuits that they have designed for Target!  Yay!!  They are fabulous!

Next up, I am drooling over this gorgeous tank from Anthropologie but after I made my photo collage at the top, the online store says “this item is no longer available”. I’m not sure if it’s a temporary thing or a forever thing {I hope not}! I did find several other macrame tanks that are equally as cute that are still available:

here is the original tank on my list:

the Sheer Patchwork Tank:



I love all this off white and beige macrame and sheer tops for summer!  They look great with anything and can be dressed up or down.  They also look great with the fun metallics mixed with leather that are popular this summer!

Last on my summer wish list and in my opinion, the most important item {my weakness}, a fabulous summer handbag!  I have to be honest, I am a bag girl and this is where I’ll splurge a little {hubby rolls eyes}.

I love Tory Burch handbags and I have several and they are in my opinion one of the best handbags you can buy.  They are all so well made and hold up through anything.  Not too mention that Tory nails the gorgeous design and style, season after season!

My summer wish list bag is this awesome Reva Clutch {with chain} in Pewter:

Isn’t she lovely { Stevie Wonder singing in background}…   Such a beautiful bag and perfect for summer!  Again, this is a bag that would go great with a t-shirt and jeans or dressed up with a beautiful maxi dress.  This bag would also go great into fall as well!

Ok, I think I have made my case and convinced myself that I need it!  It’s a little pricey {$295.00} but I know I would use this year after year.

Well friends, I’m off for a little weekend break but I’ll be back next week with a project.  Have a wonderful weekend friends!!
