Sometimes you have no words and need to express yourself in another way – and these Snarky Graphic Tees do just that.

I have to say that graphic tees (in general), aren’t my style.

But every once in awhile, a t-shirt comes along and it just speaks to you.

I personally like to keep my graphic tees on the simple side. A white tee with a black graphic is what I am immediately drawn to. This allows you to dress up your tee with a colorful blazer or fun shoes without going over the top.

Whether it speaks your view on politics, religion or your love of brunch – there is a graphic tee for everyone.

WHAT’S IN MY SUMMER BEACH BAG?

Summer Beach Bag | EatStyleCreate.com #summerstyle
1. Summer Bag | 2. Here & Here | 3. White Tee | 4. Black Shorts | 5. Sea Salt Spray | 6. Hair Ties | 7. SD Hat | 8. Beach Towel

Now that June gloom is coming to an end, the beach is calling my name.

And there are some items that are non-negotiables when it comes to my beach bag.

  1. This bag is cute and affordable. Perfect.
  2. Having something to read at the beach is a necessity. I talked about my summer reading list here with all of the books I recommend.
  3. White Tees are a summer go-to. Whether you are going to the beach or out and about, a white tee works for every occasion – and it doesn’t hurt that white makes you look more tan.
  4. Cotton shorts are easy to throw on and go. And these black lace shorts are comfortable AND make you look put together.
  5. While the ocean gives you a natural salty hairdo, this sea salt spray can give you waves whether you take a dip or not.
  6. Hair-ties are perfect to keep your hair out of your face while on the sand – or if you’re like me, to wrap up the rats nest that your hair turns into after you go swimming.
  7. Hats are a necessity all summer long. Keeps the sun off your face and wrinkles to a minimum.
  8. The last thing I have to have in my beach bag is a HUGE beach towel. I’m loving these circular towels, but I also love my good ‘ol costco jumbo towel 🙂

And while sunscreen isn’t on the list, it goes without saying that I slather it on all summer (and year) long.

What are some of your summer beach bag must-haves?

You know what I mean?

All of these necklaces are perfect to wear on their own or stacked together.

Wear to work or with a casual weekend look, gold just goes with everything. Plus its timeless.

8 ITEMS THAT WILL HAVE YOU SEEING MINT

Seeing Mint | EatStyleCreate.com
Side Table | Running Half-Zip | Sports Bra | Wireless Speaker | Essie Nail Polish | Lauren B Nail PolishNike Running Shoes

We’re just a few weeks away from the first day of Summer and if you’re like me you’re trying to hold onto Spring colors just a little longer.

One of my all time favorite Spring colors (and just colors in general) is mint!

It’s girly and fun and you can use it everywhere – from household decor to your nail color – mint just works.

These are some of my favorites across the board…

  1. This side table is simple, but will definitely bring a pop of color to any room. If you have a small space that is in need of a table (and you aren’t afraid of a little color) than this may be just what you need.
  2. Even though summer is coming we still have a lot of overcast days to come this June and this running half-zip pull over is perfect for those days you want to go for a run but need a little warmth.
  3. And what goes better with that pull over than a super cute sports bra? This one happens to be from H&M and is super affordable.
  4. I don’t know about you, but I plan on spending a lot of time outside in the next few months – whether at the pool, beach or just in the back barbecuing – and music is going to be a necessity. This portable Bose wireless speaker is so cute and can go with you everywhere.
  5. Essie is always my go-to nail polish. I know when I’m using Essie I will only need to do 1 coat.
  6. If Essie isn’t your fave you can check out this brand or a number of others that also carry a mint shade.
  7. Need some freaking adorable desk accessories? These are sure to dress up your work space!
  8. Nikes always has the best colors and patterns for running shoes and these mint ones definitely don’t disappoint. I’m loving the different colors and textures of these shoes.

What are your go-to colors as we transition from Spring to Summer? Are you loving mint too – or is it just me? 😉

Every year I am on the lookout for new trends in sunglasses.

This year I have noticed a ton of the smaller round shaped aviators, bright lenses and tortoise frames.

I love a tortoise frame. The coloring is flattering on any skin tone and it is a classic pattern that never really goes out of style.

SPRING BREAK ESSENTIALS

So I have to admit that I never thought I would have to think about what I would need for Spring Break ever again. I’ve been out of college for a few years now and the days of random breaks throughout the year were far from my mind. And even though I work for a non-profit that is part of a school, we have always had to work when the students were off.

BUT…by some amazing turn of events, my boss decided to give us the week off this year. And I am NOT complaining.
