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. 

Modern Malibu Inspired Bathroom

Summer is just around the corner and we're major California dreamin' of long days spent at the beach.  The sandy beaches of Malibu are giving us all kinds of inspiration for this bathroom mood board.  Light natural woods, teal and orange colors maintain a grown and sophisticated aesthetic.  The clean lines of the vanity, copper in the lighting and overall neutral tones keep things light, bright and modern.  The Moroccan tile flooring and textures of the towels, rug and woven basket bring in an easy-going, earthy vibe.
