The pools are opening and we’re all counting down the days ’til our feet hit the sand (or boat dock). I am so excited for summer, I can’t stand it. When evaluating my beach wardrobe this year, I decided that I have plenty of bathing suits, cover-ups, flip flops and large beach towels; but one thing I am missing is a gorgeous woven beach tote. Any of these designer beach bags put the typical, boring straw bag to shame and would be perfect accessory to any fashionable sun-bathing outfit.
Whether you’re headed to the Bahamas, Seaside or Lake Ray Hubbard, grab one of these totes, fill it with sunscreen, your e-reader, sunglasses and a deck of playing cards – you’re ready to go!

I feel really good about my Purchase History this past month. I was intentional about my spending and chose to invest in a pair of white jeans in my favorite style (J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny). Honestly, I don’t know if I can ever buy another style of skinny jeans ever again. This is my second pair and they fit me perfectly. I highly recommend finding a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove and go all in. I live in these things. Other than that, I picked up a pair of striped shorts and a floral baseball cap. They’re definitely on the trendy side, but will be fun to wear this season.
What I bought in April :: Striped Shorts from Zara // J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans // Floral Baseball Cap from Madewell // Wire Table from Threshold Collection at Target*
*Technically this is a business expense, which I don’t include, but I love this table and wanted to share.
What I was gifted in April :: Drop-Shoulder Striped Top, Striped Pocket Tee, American Flag Espadrilles, T-Strap Sandals, Beach Towel, and Color-Blocked Handbag from Old Navy // House of Harlow Earrings (in white) from Piperlime
Things I bought and returned in April :: ‘K’ Tray from Nordstrom

There are a lot of trends that catch my attention. I notice a lot of patterns in the design and fashion world, but very few have jumped out at me like shagreen, a decorative material, known for its natural rough surface of pointed scales, commonly made from the skins of sharks or stingrays. Note: since sharks are now an endangered species, most of the items here are faux. I’ve been lusting after this material after noticing several of my favorite designers crafting beautiful accessories with it. House of Harlow, Aerin, Rebecca Taylor, Milly NY and Made Goods are all using these gorgeous textured skins to cover jewelry, heels, clutches and home accessories. Martha Stewart even designed a line of desktop accessories with the stuff! Today, I’ve rounded up my favorite pieces (there are a lot). I’d try to narrow it down for you, but I can’t – I simply love it all.
