Whether you're taking off to the beach this summer, relaxing poolside or looking for a few simple pieces to give your home an easy summer refresh, here are my 2018 must-have essentials. From travel-friendly accessories to tropical prints and low-maintenance plants, these are the items I can' t live without. I love the vacation vibes I get from a simple B&W palm frond print. A chic cotton bandana will keep you cool worn around your neck or on your head. Pack light with a roll-up sunhat that takes up minimal space in your carryon- this one will keep the top of your head nice and cool. Skip the sunburn and instead build your tan with a self-tanner and keep pores minimized with a refreshing rose toner. You can't go wrong with a classic black one-piece or bikini-I love this one with a cutout out by Mara Hoffman. Splurge on a pair of retro inspired cat-eye sunglass and pair with a woven beach bag, two of the season's biggest trends. 

Baja-Inspired Dining Room

Our last post gave a look at our trip to Baja California's Valle de Guadalupe and we're not done raving about it yet (just ask our friends)!! Mexico's wine country left us mesmerized and we couldn't help but create this Baja-inspired dining room moodboard of our own. From its seaside towns to its valley vineyards, Baja is known for it's fresh, colorful cuisine. Fish tacos, lobster, ceviche, veggies and local wines and cheeses make the emerging farm-to-table dining experience one to keep you wanting more! In addition to the delicious food, we fell hard for Baja's laid-back, rustic charm. Rusty desert tones, wrought iron accents and beautifully aged textiles create stylish spaces that feel comfortable and inviting, much like Baja itself!
