Chic For Cheap



The Must-Have This Summer!

Aloha Bellas!

Let’s talk summer fashion and must-have accessories in sunny South Florida! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready to put on a cute bikini with a fabulous hat, and permanently camp at the beach with my bubbly and floaty.  I know what you guys are probably thinking. We haven’t gotten through spring and I’m already talking about summer.

Although I do love my spring ruffles and colorful dresses, there is just something about the summer warmth that is mesmerizing. Perhaps is the soft cotton, gentle fabrics, or the comfortable maxis we get to wear in the summer days. Summer looks are all about being comfortable, practical, and keeping it casual. But why not add a splash of fabulous to the summer look? So read on if you want the 411 on what is going to be your favorite accessory this season

If you haven’t noticed, straw hats with colorful pompoms are taking over the world these days, and how can they not? They are absolutely fabulous! To top it, they can be personalized with cute details. . . and I’m all about the details!

Last year, while planning my bachelorette trip to the Hamptons, I came across some really fabulous hats Nordstrom had for sale. However, there was a tiny problem: the hat was $485.00! I quickly moved on from the idea after seen the price tag.

Later on, while talking to my bestie about the Nordstrom mini heart attack, she offered to try to make me a similar one for the trip. I thought it was a wonderful idea. The hat she made me was absolutely stunning! and the best part? I had the luxury of customizing the writing.To keep the story short, the hats my bestie made were such a success during the trip, that she decided to open her own Etsy Shop to sell them.

And thus Chic & Trendy Designs was born. Today, I’ll share all the details from the Chic & Trendy Designs Boutique. I will also include some details on a beautiful straw bag I purchased from SHOP BOP for my Jamaica trip that I’m sure you guys will love.

So here is the bag I mentioned in the beginning of the blog, and these adorable tassels to go with it! I’ve linked both items in case you are feeling like getting your summer shopping started early! The bag is extremely spacious inside, which makes it perfect to fit in all your beach day goodies. You can also use it to do your Green Market shopping on Saturdays. The tassels are optional. I personally wanted to add a splash of color to my look so I opted for adding these adorable tassels to the bag.

So there you have one of my looks for this summer. I hope you guys enjoyed this first Trendy Tuesday post, looking forward to the next one. Feel free to check out the Chic & Trendy Designs tab on my blog for more details on the hats, and other fun accessories. Lastly, if you live in the Palm Beach County area, please visit the Morikami Museum! It is absolutely beautiful. So glad I was dragged here by Cherry Blossom Studio.

Ciao Bellas!
