Your Official Poolside Checklist ✔️✔️✔️

If I could do all my daily activities from inside a pool, I would. Breakfast, phone calls, workouts…you name it. Give me a big enough pool float and I will find a way to never leave. With the whole country dealing with 90°+ temperatures, I think we can all agree that the water is the place to be. So what else do we need to make sure we do this whole swimming pool thing the right way?

Lucky for you, I’ve compiled a handy list of all the things you’ll want to pack to maximize your splash time. First, don’t forget the obvious: your swimsuit (trust me, I’ve done it). One-pieces have made a serious comeback recently, and I am all for it. So many cute prints! Next, you’ll need to complete your outfit with some h20-friendly slides and a breezy cover-up.

Let’s take a minute to talk about a key player in this scenario: the sun. It’s a wonderful thing that gives us good vitamins and natural highlights, but the sun can also do some serious damage. Before you put anything else in that great new summer tote, throw in your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a sun hat. We have to protect your beautiful skin, hair, and eyes! Leave home without any of these necessities and your day could take a major turn for the worse. And don’t forget to make sure you also beat the heat by drinking plenty of water!

And when it’s time to dry off, lay out that towel, spray some sea salt in your hair (the BEST hair is pool hair), and hang out with a good book for awhile. Sounds like just another day in paradise!

Last week I finally got around to hosting a dinner in my new backyard! Much thought went into creating an intimate space for my friends to dine a la fresh air. I wanted each place setting to feel formal in terms of the set up, while keeping the vibe casual and comfortable.

Bright Lights For Your Big Day

When it comes to weddings, string lights have been all the rage for quite some time. Their simple and starry like qualities are appealing. I can’t think of a time I’ve ever thought, “You know, that just doesn’t work for this space.” That’s because they practically work in every space! They’re downright dreamy. Thing is, they’re so likable that everyone likes them — meaning they’re everywhere.

And… I’m just going to come out and say it. I think it’s time to take down the strings and perhaps move on to something new.

There are many, many other visually stunning ways to light up your party. I’ve always been a fan of the outdoor chandeliers, rustic lanterns, Eastern-inspired pendants, and delicate fairy lights are just a few. Below are my top picks for wedding lighting, but could also easily work for backyard dinner parties and other outdoor events. Continue Reading
