Light weight, quick to dry, super absorbent and obviously really cute... Turkish towels are amazing. I have bought four in the past few months and can't get enough! Use one on a flight as a blanket or as a scarf to finish off an outfit or to dry off after a surf day! I might even use these for my household towels because they are much more eco friendly than regular towels due to the quick dry time! If you live in the Portland area there is a great store in SW Portland called Indigo Traders and they have a great selection. Now if you don't live in the NW, here are some of my favorites from online (including a couple light weight beach blankets):
Off to the family cabin tonight for the weekend. Playing cards, reading books, walking on the beach, finding cool rocks, shopping the vintage store in town are just some of the activities we will be doing! Woot woot! So excited! Here is a outfit inspiration for the weekend:
Lately, I have been obsessed with palm prints! They read so tropical and summery. I decided I should make a palm print tote the night before we left to Costa Rica, so I whipped this little bad boy together to use as my carry on. The straps are loose on the sides to stick a rolled up beach towel or picnic blanket through. I'm loving using it in Portland too!
Isabel Marant is one of my favorite designers. Whenever all the new runway RTW shows come out on style.com, I seem to always be so drawn to her collections. For Spring 13, she nailed it with these cute tropical floral prints and paisleys. I also love the neutrals with the bright pop of that red!
Such a cute new & affordable line by Kate Spade!

It's that time of the year when I am just itching to get some sun. Some sun, sweet shades, warm sand, yummy cocktail, oh I could go on and on... For the time being, I am on the hunt for a new bikini!
