Summer is all about relaxing, and your style should be no different. A pair of denim overalls is the epitome of relaxed summer style. Oversize or 70’s-style, it’s a go-to for a comfy and chic look. Its stylish cousin, the overall dress, has made quite a few appearances as well, but it’s not nearly as versatile if you like spontaneous summer romps like me. True to their name, you can throw overalls literally over anything: a bikini at the beach, a bandeau and heels for drinks, or even a sweater and booties to transition into fall. Fashionistas are all over the overall trend, and you should be too!

Summer’s not over yet, meaning there are plenty of beach days still ahead. With that in mind, this Sunday I’m sighing for a beach babe hair moment. Beach hair gets big, and wavy, and salty, and there’s nothing you can do about it– but that’s the most beautiful thing. Embracing the natural rebel in your hair is the most liberating feeling, making for some seriously stylish confidence. Forget the big hat and unleash the beast– these waves are your best beach accessory.

There are really only two kinds of footwear for summer: espadrilles or bare feet. This week I’m sighing for the sandal epitome of summer in bright colors like this eye-catching pair by Castañer. With a tradition in the Mediterranean, putting on a pair of these babies makes you feel that much closer to nude beaches and turquoise waters. The best part is they’re such a staple that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like you bought them on the Côte d’Azur, brands like Soludos offer equally adorable espadrilles for a plebeian penny.

My July calendar says “Take me to the sea” in swirly blue letters, and that’s exactly what I intend to do this week. To spend my day at the beach in style, I’m sighing for a chic towel vest. If you’re not much of a swimmer, you can throw on some boyfriend jeans with your vest and bikini for a stylish stroll in the sand, but the brilliant concept is the perfect way to bundle up in cozy terrycloth without looking like a frozen burrito after a refreshing dip in the sea–that’s my kinda beach day!

Trending this Tuesday is the retro bikini‘s equally stylish cousin: the one-piece. Featured here is another coachella-worthy design by the amazing Mara Hoffman. With the help of cool designers like Mara, the one-piece is making a come-back with colors, patterns, plunging necklines, cut-outs– you name it! Long gone are the days where one-pieces were reserved for moms and swim teams. Slip into one of these for a stylish–nay, fashion forward–summer suit.

Folks, Memorial Day weekend is here, marking the beginning of summer for many and with that—pool season! That’s why I’m sighing for an adorably retro bikini, which is also quite a trendy item this season. It is flattering on absolutely everyone, highlighting hips for boyish figures but trimming the waist for curvy girls. Aside from it’s spanx-like powers that work miracles on your tummy, the silhouette is so fun and glamorous–just watch your tan lines as they are not as fun!

With one of the most renowned Film Festivals happening in Cannes right now, I’m sighing for some French Riviera glam. An easy beach tunic is the perfect outfit for a lazy Sunday in the South of France–or Southern California in my case! Throw on a straw hat and some big sunnies to complete that je ne sais quoi look. It’s perfect for french girls, starlets, and everyone else in between!
