Feeling Festiv(al)

When I received this brightly patterned swim coverup from Coral Reef Swim, I couldn’t wait to wear it over my new spring swimwear. But then I started thinking that maybe it’s cute enough to wear as something other than just a coverup. In fact, I think it’s super cute to wear for upcoming festival season. I chose to wear it in today’s post over cutoffs and a strappy swim top from Elle Mer Swim.

So, I’m now confessing my affinity for wearing swim tops as layering pieces… While in Newport at the beginning of the month, I definitely wore a black wrap-around swim top under a white see-through tunic for a blogger happy hour. And I’m doing it again in today’s post. The straps on this Elle Mer Swim top are just so much more fun than a normal cami. I’m seeing swimsuit tops in a totally different way now!

You’ve no doubt seen all of the fringe bags hitting retailer sites in the past month. You’ll want to jump on this fun trend for sure – fringe is here to stay! In the widget under the second photos, I’ve included 4 different leather fringe bags sure to work for any price point!

Also an item you’ll want to have in your closet this season, the gladiator sandal is a must! The ones in today’s post are no longer available, but I’ve also linked to a similar version that I’m thinking about getting as well. And, I have a feeling you continue to see all of my turquoise pieces as the next few months go on.

ps. Check out last year’s festival inspired posts – Transitional Festival Style and Festival Gladiator Sandals.
