5 Warm Weather Must Haves

With warm weather right upon on, I wanted to share my top 5 warm weather must haves for the spring and upcoming summer season! Unless you’re living under a rock, I am sure you’ve seen at least one of these styled in some way on a blog or instagram. In fact, I have worn all of these already! I also picked out a ton of pieces ranging in price from budget finds to splurge worthy picks for all of the below. Happy Shopping, friends! 


Do-Not-Disturb Hat

CONVERSATION HATS – we first saw these emerge a year or two ago with designer Eugenia Kim for a ridiculous price upwards of $450 dollars. I knew one thing, as much as I loved the hat, I wasn’t going to drop $450 on a straw hat that had a 75% chance of squishing in my suitcase or being blown away on the beach. If you’re all about that designer label, by all means – grab that hat girl and wear it proud! However, since these hats have gained such popularity, lots of brands and stores are making similar pieces for a much less price tag that won’t kill your wallet. Shop some of my picks below! 


ESPADRILLE WEDGES – I already chatted about the infamous Marc Fisher espadrille wedges in this post with Nordstrom, but they are by far the it shoe of the season. These started to gain traction last summer and have easily become the most coveted wedge out there! I have two pairs and am currently wishing for these tie up espadrille wedges next. If you’re not into spending the $150+ on these, then opt for this Steve Madden pair that is nearly identical but about a third of the price! ($60!)

Cult Gaia Ark Bag

BAMBOO ARK BAG – It seems like everyone has this fun bag now, but truth be told.. I first saw it on Damsel in Dior a year or two ago – and thought about how unpractical it was because wouldn’t everything just fall out? Now, it’s honestly my favorite bag to bring on tropical vacations/trips and is absolutely a conversation starter no matter where you go. I thought for sure it would be a crazy price, but you can actually scoop up this fun bamboo ark bag from Cult Gaia for $128! It’s currently on backorder until the first week of June, but preorder it now so yours ships right away in time for all those summer parties, BBQ’s, and weekend brunches. 

Silk Tank and Floral Ruffle Hem Shorts

TASSEL EARRINGS – Tassel Earrings and pretty much the statement jewelry piece of the summer. I hardly ever wear anything outside my standard studs, but tassels just get me. As soon as the warm weather hits, I reach for tasseled beauties to add a little spice to my outfits. I have this tassel pair in several colors! Baublebar has such a great selection of tassel earrings right now too – like these fun tassel stack ones or multicolored tassel end earrings! PLUS – sale alert, you can save up to 30% off right now at Baublebar, so grab a few pairs and save! 

Ruffle One Shoulder Top

ONE SHOULDER – We went through the off shoulder phase, and even the cold shoulder.. but now it’s time for the one shoulder to shine. I ordered this ruffle top in the last Shopbop sale and absolutely love it. Shop more of my favorite one shoulder pieces below!

    I couldn’t agree with these picks more! I was lucky enough to grab the Ark bag back in February and it never fails to be a conversation starter EVERYWHERE I go, from men and from women. Best purchase of the year, for sure!
