Obsessions Summer Edition

Jun 14, 2011

Happy Tuesday Lovelies! Since we are we well into the month of June I thought I would share some of my current summer obsessions!

I know this trend is nothing new, but I am really loving it this summer. I love Turquoise jewelry paired with pink, coral, yellow and other bright colored clothing!

You all know I love me some sparkling water especially LaCroix! So, I was super excited when I saw this new flavor out. Coconut water is so good for you, and this is even tastier than regular coconut water (although I am not sure it is healthier). Either way this stuff is delicious! Apparently it is sold exclusively at Target. I think this would make a tasty spin on a vodka soda drink for the summer.

I wrote about the colored denim trend a few months ago, but I think I might be liking the colored jean shorts even better than the jeans. I could totally see myself pairing these with a neutral blouse or cute white t-shirt to run errands. I never jumped the gun and bought the colored jeans but I would consider buying the shorts on sale:)

My girl Chassity first introduced me to these gorgeous Lucite trays and now I can’t stop thinking about them! They are perfect to store your jewelry, make-up, nail polish, or really anything. I love the large tray to serve some summery drinks, like say a skinny margarita on! You can check out her Etsy Shop HERE

I seriously adore JA so it is no surprise I love his new line of beach totes. I love the patterns and would be happy to tote one of these babies to the beach this summer.

    these are always my favorite post…your obsessions. If I am not obsessing about the same things like the JA beach totes, you just give me something new to obsess about like the shorts!!

    I am very curious about the coconut la croix. I go through about a case of lime la croix a week, I have never tried any other flavor. My friend told me that the grapefruit is really good…anyway I am so excited to try the coconut because you are right all I hear about is how good coconut water is so good for you

    coconut la croix, are you serious? i love the look of the can too, haha. the last time i wore colored jeans was 5th grade. i had purple and magenta. it's probably better that it's the last time i wore them. idk…they do seem fun though. my friend has a pair of red jeans and she looks hot in them! i do have an adorable pair of bright orange shorts…my ex bf said they looked sexy, haha!

  8. Those shorts look a little too short for me! But I LOVE everything else!
