Who else has been crazing some serious beach time lately? I have been looking forward to this week for about a month now because I knew that I’d be reunited with the sand and sunshine. If you’ve been following along with @apinchoflovely on Instagram, you’ve already seem some of our 30A beach road trip. BUT I wanted to share more of my beach trip essentials with you guys – because there are SO many cute pieces.
From floppy hats, pom pom details and tassel earrings, I’m currently craving all the spring new arrivals! I’ve gone through three of my favorite shopping sites to come up with a comprehensive Wednesday Wants list to cure your wanderlust. See below to see the items I’ve packed for the beach this week + more that I have my eye on!

If you follow me on Instagram (or really anywhere), I’m sure you have noticed my huge shoe problem. I’m a borderline shoe hoarder. Scanning through pages and pages of Nordstrom spring shoes is basically a favorite pastime of mine. BUT I realize not everyone enjoys doing that quite as much as I do. So, I’m teaming up with Nordstrom in today’s post to share my favorite new shoe arrivals for spring!
Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers when it comes to shoe selection. They carry everything from running shoes to designer heels making it incredibly easy to find the perfect pair! For example, you can take a shoe trend like mules and find a style that fits your budget instantly. The variety of brands will help you find your solemates all in one spot!
The annual Shopbop spring sale is back where you can “Buy More, Save More” with the discount up to 25% reflected on how much you spend. This sale is easy to get overwhelmed with if you don’t know which direction to start. Mainly because Shopbop’s site is ginormous – and unlike Revolve, there’s no super easy way to wittle down items into your price range. SO good thing that I regularly stalk the new arrivals every day because I have a pretty good idea on which items to key in on right now.
THIS is the Shopbop sale you want to hit up when you are looking for big ticket items. These are the things that will not go on sale on other sites – basically ever – which makes them highly covetable when you find them on sale. I would scope out these categories FIRST:
Next, you want to think about upcoming events that you’ll need outfits for – spring wedding guest dresses, spring break outfits, festival outfits. What are some pieces and brands that you want to key in on? Are you looking for pom pom beach coverups and straw beach totes? Or are you looking for the perfect cocktail dress and party heels? Narrow down your search that way. I’ve scoped out my favorites across all categories and am sharing them below!
Because this whole working-out-every-morning thing is so new to me – I’ve had a few things to learn along the way. One of them being – do NOT go run errands after spin class because you WILL see everyone you now in the process. Rookie mistake. To save face during errand runs and literally save my face from breakouts, I’ve come up with a list of my favorite post-workout beauty essentials. They fall into five different categories of gym bag beauty products for those days you want to go from barre to brunch.
From face-cleansing wipes to hair refresh sprays, you’ll also find a few necessary post-gym makeup essentials like light-coverage skin tints. Because the last thing you want to do after sweating is cake on a thick foundation. What are your gym bag heros? I’d love to get some suggestions and hear your favorite on-the-go favorites! #beautygamestrong

I think it’s safe to say that no matter where you live right now, you’re ready for warmer weather, sunshine on your face and – especially for me – tan legs. I’m swooning over all of the new spring dress styles that are popping up all over my favorite retail sites! Off the shoulder, chambray, stripes, stripes and MORE stripes. They’ve got me anticipating spring travel plans for sure! So it’s really no wonder that I’m focusing in on my favorite spring dress styles in today’s post – 16 to be exact. So no matter what you’re looking for, there’s bound to be something that catches your eye!
You might also see a common trend of repeating colors – I think I’m on a blush, white and light blue kick lately!
