You didn’t think I was done with elephants when I introduced you to my elephant bib necklace this week, did you?
I hope not, because today I have an assortment of elephant jewelry and accessories to share with you. If wearing a large bib necklace isn’t your style, perhaps one of these daintier elephant pendant necklaces would be up your alley? Maybe a bejeweled elephant bangle or some stud earrings? I have to say: I’m particularly fond of the teapot and mugs pictured below…and I would totally water my garden with that elephant shaped watering can! Seriously – how cute is that?
Do you have a favorite animal shaped accessory? What is it?
It’s beach season!
I’ve already contemplated what to wear to the beach (and actually picked up an awesome ruched one piece suit at Marshalls the other day – score!), but that isn’t the only element to consider. How about some beach totes and towels? You can’t forget those essentials!
Today I wanted to round up a collection of tote bags and towels…perfect for the pool or the beach! Every gal needs to get out in the sun in style, am I right? No boring bags to pack your towel, sunscreen, and books in!
What do YOU pack in your beach bag?
When you live in Florida, it only seems natural to become a connoisseur of sandals. For me: flip flops. I wear them practically year-round and I am constantly adding to my collection, as I tend to wear them out at a rapid rate. Thankfully, there never seems to be a shortage of open toed lovelies to pick from. Whether I want a traditional, simple thong sandal or a more elaborate strappy pair, I can always find one for a reasonable price.
To prove it to you, I rounded up 30 affordable pairs to pick from so you can start the summer off in style! Which would you choose?
Have you noticed the sun shining a lot lately? As the days grow longer and the rays start getting stronger, it is time to make sure you have a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes!
Now, when it comes to saving versus splurging, sunglasses are one of the areas where I do splurge a bit. Protecting my eyes is so important, so buying a quality pair of shades is essential to wear when I leave my home. I know a lot of people argue that they sit on their sunglasses and break them so they shouldn’t buy expensive sunglasses. However, trust me: if you buy a nice pair…you’ll make sure you take care of them. At least, in my case, I know that is true. I’ve invested in a few pairs of “higher end” sunglasses and they are all still in use up to 6 years later. I never leave my sunglasses out on the counter or in my car seat. They come off of my head and straight into their sunglasses case (which you definitely should have for your sunglasses, by the way). I’ve yet to break a pair of mine. Also – that doesn’t mean I don’t have pairs of less expensive sunglasses. I always have a pair on hand to wear to the beach – I don’t want my nice sunglasses to get sand on them!
Today, I thought I’d round up a collection of sunglasses in all shapes, styles, and colors! From cat eye, to retro, to striped, to tortoise…there are a lot to pick from! And they come in all price points as well…you don’t have to splurge on an expensive pair if you don’t want to (even though I suggest you save your pennies for a nice pair)!
Anyway – what do you think? Do you splurge on a nice pair of sunglasses? Any favorite brands or shapes?
