    Summer dressing gets simple with this cute yellow & white sundress from LOFT. Wear it alone or layer with a denim jacket after dark.

    Retro Shades

    Look like an Old Hollywood starlet while you lounge by the pool in these retro white rimmed shades.

    Flat Espadrilles

    Catch the breeze on a bike ride through town and trade in lace up athletic shoes for some easy to slide on espadrilles. Pair this funky print with a neutral sundress and you're ready to ride!

    Retro Swim Suit

    I'm crazy about glamorous, vintage inspired swimwear. This black and white polka dot one piece would look great with red or yellow accessories.

    Chambray Shirt Dress

    A breezy, 100% cotton chambray shirt dress works for the office and beach alike.

    Canon G12 Digital Camera

    For photos on the go, I like to use my Canon G12 instead of my heavier SLR. It has a lot of the manual features of a professional camera, but the ease of an auto point and shoot mode as well.

    Straw Tote

    In addition to my summer handbag, I always keep a bag full of essentials (see below) by the door so I can grab and go. A striped straw bag is neutral enough to work with almost every summer outfit. MY ESSENTIALS:  SPF lip balm   ·  water bottle   ·  short brim hat

    Wide Brim Hat

    For longer sun exposure like at the park, beach or pool, opt for a
    wider brim.

    Printed Skirt

    Boldly printed summer skirts always look great with a simple white blouse or tee (I'd even throw this on over the polka dot swimsuit!)

    Timex Watch

    I love the sleek white and white of this easy going nylon band watch from Timex (I'm their summer brand ambassador!)
