With Megan’s west coast travels and Lauren’s Cancun vacation on our minds, can you be surprised we’re a little summer beach obsessed lately?! Instead of keeping inside from the oncoming sweltering heat, we’re trying to find more ways to hit the coast (or the pool) in our favorite swimsuits! But to avoid the sun’s harsh rays (or let’s be honest – for evenings we want to have that extra margarita in peace) it’s always smart to bring a cute coverup. There are tons of styles, but which do you like best? Megan wore this strappy royal blue coverup in California, while Lauren donned her chambray tunic in Mexico. Sure, Lauren’s provides a bit more coverage from the sun, but Megan’s looks adorable and girly! Both are winners in our book.

Warmer weather = funner outfit choices, right?! We loved seeing bright colors, fun patterns, and cute outfits this week from our favorite bloggers! From crazy heels and classic stripes to casual cutoffs, these ladies know their styles and how to rock what they’ve got. Check out some of our favorite #ootd posts from the past week below!
Give. us. dem. heels. Tilden! In the words of Tyra Banks – fierce!
How much more sunny and feminine can you get? We love this blue and white stripes + lace look from Kelsey of Ladies in Navy!
Maxi season is here, ladies! What better way to kick off the season than with a bold, watercolor patterned dress? Check out the rest of Stephanie’s photos to see more of her fab maxi!
Leave it to Katie of Pearls and Twirls to make us oggle over a simple button down and cut off shorts. We love the pale green and bright coral color combination!

Jealous of Inspired by our own #bossbitch Lauren’s recent trip to Cancun, summer and swim have been on the brain lately, and there definitely isn’t a shortage of bomb.com swimwear online! With staples like J Crew, swim newcomers like Kate Spade, and trendy brands like Triangl, how can we only stop at one or two go-to pieces? Check out our must-have swim styles for 2015 below and let us know what you think!
- Triangl is a newly trendy brand, but we can hardly go on Instagram without seeing someone donning a suit! We love the bold designs, and who could say no to a bright suit on a hot beach? If you like trying new styles in bold colors, we love this look.
- Mara Hoffman is a swim maven, and it’s obvious why! Her designs are a mix of eclectic and bohemian, which is just adventurous and fun enough to give them a try. If you’d rather wrap up in a one piece instead of going for a bikini, Mara Hoffman’s designs won’t make you self-conscious for a second – rock her awesome patterns and designs with confidence!
- Kate Spade has answered our calls for vintage and girly swimwear by launching their own line this season! Put on this gorgeous bow bandeau bikini and you might be sent back to the beach in the 1950’s. It’s so pretty we almost don’t want to get it wet!
- J Crew is a tried and true staple for cute suits at super affordable costs. We love mixing and matching different styles within the same color palette to add a little interest. Also, the french-style bikini tops are so comfortable and chic, don’t you think?
What is your favorite go-to swim style? Let us hear!
We don’t want to show favoritism here, but we’re so ready to inject a
little lot of color into our day to day looks! Minimalist whites, creams, and dark hues are fine, but once spring rolls around we are ready for pastels in all shapes and forms! Give us some periwinkle, lilac, and soft pinks and you’ll think we’re trying to match the new blooms. And don’t think it’s only us! We’ve rounded up our favorite 3 ways to incorporate pastels into your spring looks to add a little spring in your step!
1. All of the accessories
Yes, all of them. We’re obsessing over these pastel blue sandals that Anna of A Lily Love Affair snapped! They would pair perfectly with a bright pedicure, or make a statement on their own. Adding pastel accessories is a great way to add a little oomf to an otherwise minimal outfit and act as a focal point!
2. Pile on the pastels!
Follow in Alicia’s footsteps and rock a pastel cardigan, dress, or shorts, and don’t look back! This is the perfect way to wear bright colors without being too obnoxiously loud. Pair your pastel piece with muted colors, like Alicia’s white top and brown boots. Remember – during spring there is no such thing as too much pastel.
3. Beauty time!
If you’re anything like us, this is your pastel go-to! Painting your nails, wearing different eyeliners and shadows, and adding some pale pink blush is the perfect way to add pastels to your beauty regimen, but still be able to change from day to day. Play up your eyes with some light purple eyeshadow, or add a pop of pink (like Kristin from Fancy Things!) to your nails.
We don’t know about you, but the entire Adorn team is breathing a sigh of relief that Friday is here! Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, y’all! Every time Friday comes around, we can’t wait for the weekend, but there were some great articles, outfits, and looks that we found on the interwebs this week. Do you have any favorites? Check out ours below and add yours in the comments! Remember – happy Fri-YAY!
How amazingly feminine and beautiful is our own Megan in this garden party look? Perfect for spring!
We also adored Emily’s sequin and royal blue cocktail dress! Perfect for day or a night out with the girls, don’t you think?
Lauren switched up a classic striped piece with this off the shoulder dress! L-O-V-E!
One spring trend we can’t get enough of? Pops of lavender and purple. Seriously, give us all of it, so of course this look from Shelby has us drooling!
Sometimes you just need to get a little bold, and these shorts are the perfect way to do it! Jessica looks fab in her royal blue button down and polka dot shorts – agreed?
Stripes + jeans are an instant way to look chic and put together (while staying super comfortable)! Blair definitely knows how to rock her staples!
Denim is one of those closet staples that never goes out of style and can be worn so many different ways. In the winter we love wrapping up in a thick knit sweater, socks, and skinny jeans to keep warm, but in the summer denim cutoffs are a must! Spring can be a tricky season to style for, since some days are stuck in winter, with cold wind and chilly rain, but other days can be completely sunny and summer-esque. The Adorn team members style our denim differently: Megan can rock a pair of white skinny jeans like no one else, while Lauren’s chambray top is a perfect fit for an otherwise dressier skirt and heels combo! Any way you can style a denim piece, we can guarantee we’ve done it! So…
Which look is your fave? How do you rock your denim pieces during spring? Let us know in the comments!
With spring finally here (HALLELUJAH!), we love how many light and bright outfits are decorating our blog feeds! We’re finally putting back the heavy sweaters, dark nail polishes, and thick socks in exchange for light cotton tops, flowy dresses, shorter skirts, and strappy sandals. It’s not quite summer yet, so we aren’t quite ready for bright neons, which is why pops of light, pastel colors are a nice change of pace! Fun patterns, prints, and colors are definitely welcome!
Check out these four looks below that we couldn’t get enough of this week. From the palm printed dress on A Lily Love Affair to Alicia’s adorable crop top/maxi skirt combo, our faves are ready for the sun!
