While I may be born in the spring, I’m really a summer baby through and through—I live for summertime every year and find any excuse to bring in summery vibes as early as possible to my life, whether that’s diving into the ocean a bit earlier than most (why you’ve gotta build up that cold tolerance) or adding in doses of summer style come spring!
Fortunately, there are two accessories in particular that not only look totally natural with spring
I especially love the juxtaposition of a beachy basket bag with something that’s still a bit chillier weather apropos, like this luxe and cozy crewneck cashmere sweater from White + Warren, or even with a leather or suede jacket, olive trench or nubby teddy jackets.

Stay tuned for the whole story coming soon!
I’m taking off to Mexico at the end of this week so I’ll undoubtedly be throwing in these two main accessories for effortless beachy style—love focusing on super wearable classics like this that I can get a ton of use out of both here at home now in spring and during my travels, particularly for beachy vacations when you sometimes feel obligated to shop specifically for the trip. Can’t wait to share more about packing for that trip too!
