Endless Summer

This will be my first summer in Newport and I could not be more excited to spend my days basking on Second Beach with my new rotation of bikinis, sun hats, and good books.

As any beachgoer knows, both sand and dinner-friendly looks are essential to a summer wardrobe. Beach-to-night outfits are the solution to keeping you carefree and stylish - just as summer should be.     

Effortless mini dresses are the name of the game. A fun, flirty mini dress will always seamlessly transition you from a day in the sand to cocktail hour with friends. Everybody needs a go-to wrinkle-free dress that you can throw over a bikini and then dress up with a pair of heels. 

I'm loving shades of yellow this season, they compliment sun kissed skin so well! I'm currently obsessed with Free People's Tulum Cutwork Slip - it's light weight and the low-cut back will showcase your summer glow. I'm also loving Mellow Yellow Ballerina Romper by Blue Life, the newest brand addition to our collection. The scrunched bodice and layered skort bottom are so fun - perfect for running around on a balmy summer day.

A California girl through and through, I'm always in my favorite daisy dukes at the beach. A great pair of denim shorts can take you from a game of beach volleyball to beers at your favorite pub. I love wearing a cute tee for that ultimate casual look, but you can also always dress up a pair of shorts with a tie-up top at night. By the coast, a light-weight summer sweater is my go-to for those chillier evenings. 

I've also been loving open-back tanks with denim for a more playful look. Fun back details quickly elevate simple, solid tanks while showing off your new bikini or bralette. They're perfect after a day in the sun when you want something comfy, light-weight, and airy.

Dakota and I have obsessed over our newest brand, Blue Life, for years and could not be more thrilled to add it to the Harper & Tucker summer collection. This California-based and US-made brand epitomizes the "beach to streets" lifestyle and will make you feel coastal cool no matter where you live. Their Ruffle Culotte pant has become a staple in-store and in our closet. These pants make you feel like a goddess as you stroll along the beach, and can easily dress up for a night out. Pair with a fun print or one of our newest bramis and you'll never want this summer to end.

My favorite aspect of summer is the way in which it gives us permission to be as carefree as we were as kids. Regardless if you're by the beach, the mountains, or the city centre everywhere is your playground this season. I feel incredibly fortunate that Newport is mine, and plan to take full advantage.
