It’s FINALLY summer! We’re living in sandals and swimsuits, citrus is sweeter, mint more refreshing, and and a cocktail on ice is the perfect ending to a day of fun in the sun. As the slow days of summer roll in, I’m feeling more cheerful than ever and my sunny outlook has spilled over into my home decor and wardrobe. I’ve been shopping for all things bold and bright, so today I’m sharing my fresh, summer fruit inspired picks with you.
Color is always a creative muse for me, and I most certainly drew from this fresh summer palette when rounding up this season’s must-haves! My favorite shades right now are watermelon-coral pink, mint-lime green, sun-faded lilac, and golden-lemon yellow. These “combo colors” are modern, crisp, and offer a delightful POP — which is why you will find each of them present in my fresh summer fruit picks!
All things pineapple are majorly popular this summer and I enthusiastically encourage you to try out this fun and whimsical trend for both your home and wardrobe! To start, these charming swim trunks would be dapper on any little surfer dude.
For a seriously mommy chic(k) #OOTD moment, this stunning maxi skirt is a must! And don’t forget the poolside cocktails, mama! Snag this darling decanter before they’re all gone, as I’m predicting you’ll be seeing these on all of the top blogger’s summer bar cart posts soon!
As passionate as I am about pretty pineapples this summer, there is other fruit-inspired freshness that can’t go without mentioning!
Can we talk about how precious this pink melon swimsuit is, with built-in floaties? LOVE! And it wouldn’t be summer with littles without a hooded towel to take along in your beach tote. Little Unicorn’s lemon print is gender neutral and oh so soft!
Lastly, I present to you the perfect summer scent. Mint may be unexpected, but it reminds me of an iced cocktail garnish: it’s light, crisp and relaxing. Lafco’s Mint Tisane is a must for helping this mama unwind at home come summertime!
I hope you enjoyed my fruit-inspired, summer fresh finds! Tell me about your seasonal must-haves in the comments below!
