Summer Obsessions!

I love summer! Last summer we were so lucky to get to spend a couple of solid weeks beaching it and I daydream of that again. But this summer we'll stay closer to home prepping for baby girl. However, just because we're not AT the beach doesn't mean I can't be beach ready at say...my pool or the lake right? I figure if I'm going to continue to decorate as if I have a beach house why should my wardrobe and goodies be any different?

While I love the hottest trends as much as the next gal I try to find a way to buy them on what I consider a reasonable budget. Also, I'm trying not to spend so much on myself so I can spend on my 'baby want' list (coming soon). The summer season works in my favor though because I can get a few key items and make it work all summer long. This summer with the belly I am all about hats, bags and beachy wear. Here is my Summer Essentials List! Some of these items I have in some form or another, some I plan to buy, and some I'll continue to admire from my screen.  What's on your list?

Cutest little crossbody from Target! Would be perfect for walks on the beach or festival season

Confession: I've seen similar bags that cost way more...but you can get this adorable version at Nordstrom's in the Jr. Section for a sliver of that cost. And since we're all about the weekend getaway this would be a great addition!

Oh I love this chair so much! This belongs in my 'future beach house' arsenal stat!

I'm ready for an upgrade in beach towels and this fouta beach towel from Serena & Lily needs to be mine.

I'm a hat girl! I wear a hat 5 days out of the week because they are fun, stylish and conceal a bad hair day! I have no problem investing in a great hat. This panama hat from Madewell belongs in my collection.

I think I want a Kimono just to wear around the house. If I had all the money in the world I'd buy this and everything else from Nena & Co.

However, this Kimono from Billabong is way more in my price range and just as cute!

COMFORT! You need a pair of these for any beach vacation or just to lounge at home. This pregnant momma is living in the pair below folks! AMAZING!
 
 
Hey! You gotta have SPF for the summer. I suggest trying Sun Bum. Discovered it in Clearwater, bought it in Ocean City and I'm HOOKED! It smells INSANE and it's in such a cute bottle. They also have Baby SPF too :)

What's on your summer 'want' list!? Whether it be hats or bathing suits I hope you're having a great summer so far!
