Spring is right around the corner! So today I’m sharing some of my 2016 Spring & Summer Basics Must Haves. Women's Hot Pink Scalloped High Neck One Piece Swimsuit - Vanilla Beach

 Living here in Orlando and surrounded with water parks, a one piece bathing suit is a must for me (I don’t want my top flying out on a water slide! lol). This one is not only an adorable swim suit, it’s in a great hot pink color and it’s also a great deal under $50. 🙌 If you have an extra $319 laying around, you may like this similar black scalloped one piece as well.Sam Edelman Yardley Suede Lace-Up Sandal, Camel

These Sam Edelman suede sandals absolutely must find their way into my closet, because they are just way too perfect. The color and design make them so easy to style up or down in so many different ways.

Extra-Wide Floppy Straw Hat

During the Spring & Summer seasons, I spend a lot of time at the beach and poolside. A huge sun hat is a life saver.


Orlando has some of the best water parks in the US and my daughters love to water park hop. So, I love to stock up on cover ups and this one is just too adorable to say no to. Plus, it comes in multiple colors.

Tory Burch Miller Patent Leather Logo Thong Sandals - Sand

These Tory Burch sandals are my go-to in Florida and you can almost wear these babies all year long. You may be able to find a pair, or 2, or 3 in my closet. lol. 😝

Dior So Real Sunglasses

A good pair of shades are a must … even though I usually don’t like to spend a lot of money on them, because I tend to scratch or break them within a week! 🙈 But this Spring & Summer season, these babies seem to be the style to have. So I’m considering giving them a try and I’m going to try super hard not to break them. 😉

White and multicolor crochet neoprene brazilian bikini

This one is definitely going to find its way into my closet this summer, because let’s be honest … this bikini is just too cute not to have. 💕 (Update! We now sell it in my boutique, there are five color options and you can mix and match top and bottom sizes too!)

Matisse Atlas Tall Gladiator Sandal

I got these lace up gladiator sandals in 2 colors, tan & black, and I just absolutely love them. They are perfect to add a little bit of an edgy look, but not too much.

365 days of summer embroidered straw clutch

Last, but not least, a straw clutch is the perfect fit for any casual summer look. Here’s hoping the items in this list that I don’t have yet will find their way into my closet, courtesy of the shopping fairy! lol

Until Next Time!  XOXO  -E 💋

So, I saw a jacket like this at Zara a while back and I totally fell in love with it, but it was $99. So I decided to wait and see if one of my vendors from E’s Closet had a similar style and they did! We call it “Larissa” and the best part is, it’s almost half the price. YAY! 🙌

Hat / Top / Jacket / Similar Purse / Necklace / Watch / Pants / Booties

This jacket is not only perfect for Fall, it can also be worn with shorts for Spring and Summer. A “three season jacket” is just amazing if you ask me. 👌 XOXO -E






Do I need to say anything else? 😍 This is such a simple outfit, yet I still felt very chic wearing it. The detail on this mesh embroidered crop top from E’s Closet is just stunning. I wore it with a black bralette underneath and paired the top with high waist jeans and strappy sandals. Ta-Da … the perfect outfit! So simple, yet so stunning, in my opinion. 😊

Ok. It doesn’t matter anyway…because I wear white all year round! That rule is pretty much a thing of the past. When I wear the Caden dress from E’s Closet, it immediately makes me channel my inner Bohemian. I paired it here with my gladiator sandals too for just the right amount of 70’s vibe. I got the hat from Zara last weekend and I have to say, it was love at first sight. Confession: I am a little bit of a hat hoarder 🙂 Lastly, I added the embroidered purse and it pulled the whole outfit together 🙂 Until next time. XOXO -E

Update! I found it girls and you’re going to die…because I’ve found the dress I’ve been hunting for you shopaholics for months. I’ve searched every vendor across the globe and found a good few options that were not up to the quality level I’ll carry in my boutique. But this one is to die for. Embroidered bust? Check. Beaded tassle detail? Check. And it’s plenty long with a liner and adjustable straps too. Happy Happy Happy. Oh, and of course here’s photos of some alternates I love from elsewhere too. 🙂 XOXO -E
