Poolside Secrets

Sending you off into the holiday weekend with some“Poolside Secrets”. First off, I found a great pair of Chanel look for less slides at Amazon along with this chic straw tote. H&M’s hot new arrivals include this white dress (Rhode look for less), twill paper-bag pantwhite wrap top (Ganni look for less), v neck dress, a-line cotton dress (great cover-up), and cotton utility jumpsuit (& this Alex Mill one). Goop just got in a new Mirth x Goop dress that would look great with these cream TKEES. Lastly, I thought you would like Bille Blooms’s face masks. Stay safe everyone and have a great July 4th weekend!

XOXO
