Is there any better way to get into a sunny frame of mind than to pontificate on sea, surf, and sand between your toes?
We get it. Even if you haven't made it to the beach yet (a girl's gotta work, y'all!), channelling surfy vibes is the surest way to get you in the summer spirit. Sun on your shoulders, the smell of sea salt, and definite plans for hitting up 30A at some point - that's how us söpöbabes are getting psyched for some sun.
Local darling Sarah Killen (of Saint Claude) crafted this fierce little statement piece (1.) from a cast of a real-life spider crab. Mixed metals mean carefree jewelry pairings; shiny metals add polish and shine. We paired it with this happy-as-heck silk number (2.) from H. Fredriksson; a surefire way to feel that summer breeze at all your upcoming Spring events. Throw on the beauty gods' gift to us for beachy hair (AKA the iconic Herbivore Sea Salt Spray 5. ) and enjoy all the cool-girl compliments.
Handcrafted shibori linen "beach blankets" from Katrin Reifess (3.) have hit söpö and we are dying over the sheer versatility of these gorgeous textiles. Throw this baby wherever the spirit leads - over your shoulders, your couch, or your table. We love the idea of wearing it as a cover-up "dress" at a shoreside dinner.
No local summer look is totally topped off unless a girl's got her pair of signature Krewes. What better than the celeb favorite St. Louis (4.)? This pair reminds us of mother of pearl and feels like a chic spin on classic, crazy 90's specs.
