Summer 2018 made its official debut last week, and as I post this, I'm looking through photos of our recent trip to Arizona. I hadn't been to the river in years, and a camping adventure with friends was exactly the perfect way to kick off the season. Our dog Nettie loved the water, and I'm hoping we can take her back every year and make it a tradition.

But let's bring it back to fashion! My favorite part of any season is of course the clothes! Summer stands out the most to me in terms of accessories. All I really need for a Summer wardrobe are some basic tops, a couple pairs of denim shorts, kimonos to add an extra layer in case I'm stuck inside with A/C, and a handful of dresses. It gets so extremely hot here that after about a month in, I struggle to come up with new ways to wear things and that's when accessories really come into play.

Here are the major trends of Summer 2018 that I'm wearing:

1. Opal
adds a touch of bohemian whimsy 

2. White
a neutral that pops against sunkissed skin
Greek Sandals

3. Fringe
playful movement to bring attention to the face
Stella & Dot sold out, but similar here on sale

4. Nautical 
Espadrilles for going on an adventure

Other accessory trends I'm craving: 
straw bags
medallion necklaces

  1. Sounds like a great trip! I hate the days when it's so hot you feel like you can't wear anything, but light weight accessories always work! that necklace is so pretty.

  2. Totally agree with you about needing accessories to mix up my summer outfits. I am loving the opal stone in that necklace - such a pretty accent! And the medallion necklace you featured is a favorite. It's one of the top pieces on my S&D wishlist. :)
