STYLED / 17

i have a million style post ideas swimming around in my head but can’t seem to pick one idea to stick with so today we’re just going to call this post friday finds. half of the online stores seem to be having sales which means that we’re in transition, they’re getting rid of spring merchandise and stocking summer pieces! it’s all about white, ruffles, wrap dresses, pops of peach, pink and coral, linen and gauze. one of my favorite things to wear to the beach in the summer is an oversize white cotton button up shirt. i’ve had great luck finding them at thrift stores, look in the men’s section. don’t worry if it’s large on you, you can always tie the front up if needed! – joanie

 

 ($58) – i bought this bikini top years ago and it’s still one of my favorites. you can shop it by bra size which makes all the difference because small, medium and large just don’t cut it for everyone. i have a large chest and it can be hard to find swimsuits and this one is a winner.

 ($70) – finding the perfect paid of jean shorts is like finding a needle in a hay stack. i don’t want them too short, or too tight and finding the perfect combination feels impossible so instead, this summer i’m opting for the jean skirt. much more flattering and just as easy to wear!

 ($158) – i love all of the detailing on this top, the tiny orange stripe, the delicate ruffle on the sleeve, and the v neck that makes the oversized shape much more flattering. i won’t be spending $150 + on this top but i’m using it as inspiration for future shopping trips.

 ($375) – i don’t own a single pair of Loeffler Randall shoes but i consider myself to be a big fan of the brand and love seeing the collections they put out each season. their colors, gentle use of embellishments and timeless styles are inspiration for shoe shopping even if you can’t afford a pair.

 ($230) – i love this oversized star top and it’s be cute with the jean skirt above and also over a tank dress or with a dark pair of jeans to off set the light blue. (also a very chic 4th of july option!)

 ($118 + 25% off!) – i  love a pair of really light colored sunglasses in the summer and these have a great mix of metal and plastic which makes them more sophisticated than many other colored options out there.

 ($60) – we’re going to feature an entire post on ruffles because they are everywhere right now but i wanted to get this $60 romantic ruffle dress on your radar as quickly as possible. cute with white sneakers, flattering wrap waist, delicate print, it checks all the boxes for the perfect summer dress.

 ($204) – i’ve seen a few girls carrying this bag around LA and it’s so cute and the perfect summer tote. the canvas with the stripe and the size makes it a really versatile, every day bag that will pair with a lot!

 ($30) – shorts are hard to find. i bought these over the weekend because i went out of town and realized half way there that i had forgotten my swimsuit and shorts but it ended up being a win because i love these. high waisted with a little pleating in the front. chic and flattering!

ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT

ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT

i’m cooking more than ever these days. i love putting in a lot of effort one night and then making something really simple the next night. constantly switching up the flavors and difficulty levels. some nights it’s nice to put in a little more effort for your partner and make it feel like a fancier date. for me, i always notice that when i have flowers on the table, a burning candle, a record playing, a glass of wine, and a pretty table…it feels SPECIAL. today we’re focusing on really simple ways to elevate your date night. they are quick, inexpensive, and have a lot of impact on the evening! -bri

oh the difference it makes…

ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT | designlovefest

TIPS TO ELEVATE YOUR DATE NIGHT SETUP:

• we all eat with our eyes too! so presentation can make a big difference. you can get a rotisserie chicken but decide to plate it over some rosemary potatoes and it suddenly feels like you’re eating at a restaurant!

• fresh herbs. this is a big one. not only sprinkling fresh rosemary but also using the full sprigs for garnish on the plate will make it look nice. the same goes for adding fresh lemon slices to your water. keep a couple of fresh herb options on hand, i like basil, rosemary and mint and incorporate them into your meals throughout the week. it’s amazing how much it can impact the flavor of a really simple dish. adding fresh dill to your tuna salad, chopped meat to your salad, basil on a piece of fish, etc.

• matching silverware (we love ) 

• your wine while you’re cooking. it helps with the flavor and the presentation is appealing.

• taking your condiments OUT of the packaging is a big one. as a visual person this is probably the most important one for me. taking your berries out of the plastic and putting them in a bowl, putting your salt in a pinch bowl…basically taking any logos off the table and using vessels to style with.

• add a linen tablecloth and cloth napkins (you can pick up raw edged linen from your local fabric store for much cheaper than buying a linen tablecloth. it still looks cool! that’s what we are using here as our table cloth)

• herbed butter (you can look at this post for flavored butter ideas) served in a small bowl on the table. make your rolls taste amazing, or simply dip radishes with salt in the butter (so delicious)

• light a candle…set the mooooooood.

• flowers or greenery on the table actually do make it feel special. sometimes if i don’t have time to get them at the store i just go clip something from my yard and put it in a vase.
