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.

She wore an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, mini skirt? You can’t wear a yellow polka-dot bikini in town, but a mini skirt is probably the closest and most tasteful way to show some skin in summer–it’s no wonder they’re so hot right now. Easy-breezy flowy minis are a personal fave of mine, but a more structured mod mini is just as cute–bonus points for bright colors or florals. Let your legs breathe and you’ve unlocked the secret to a chic and comfy summer outfit…

Summer is about celebration, and nothing feels more fashionably festive than tassels in warm weather. From boho beachwear to designer shoes and accessories, they’ve been trending all over lately. The exotic vibe of tassels is just so appealing, as if they were a sartorial sign that you’re on vacation. Standing out with their bright colors and eye-catching movement, they are the ultimate fashion accessory for celebration. Need something to celebrate? In honor of Bastille day, check out this festive necklace in bleu blanc & rouge made by French jewelry designer Aurelie Bidermann.

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.

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.

Probably because Queen B is single-handedly making them cool again in her new music video “Feeling Myself”, metallic flash tattoos are making a comeback. Temporary tattoos are the stuff of our youth, and for that they’re a summer staple. There’s no doubt that the boho tats just ooze California cool (I should know by now, right?). After all, nothing looks better with sun-kissed skin than some golden accessories to match. Wear them with a maxi dress, bangles, and long locks for the ultimate summer look that’s fit for a sun goddess.

Two weeks ago I featured the trending jumpsuit, but this week I’m sighing for its adorably comfortable cousin: the romper. The chic silhouette works for so many occasions, and a silky floral one (like the one I have my eye on) is a beautiful ode to Spring. True to it’s name, it’s playful and perfect for a Spring or Summer romp!
