Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to Summer and that gets me so so excited!  Summer is my favorite season because of the warm temps and mainly because the sun just makes me happy! I absolutely love wearing dresses and sandals and having an excuse to get constant pedicures.  My photographer Diana and I took a little trip to the Saltair in Magna, UT to take these beach/water inspired pictures and I just LOVE LOVE the location and backdrops of these.  The sun was super bright and I am pasty white, so a tan is in order very soon.

The majority of this outfit is from The Mint Julep Boutique, they seriously have some super cute stuff for amazing great prices (and they are running a Memorial weekend sale as well so you better get on it)!  Their items are totally on trend, so pretty and they’ve got tons of options for your Summer beach party, going out, or every day.  Keep on reading for a giveaway…

    I can’t choose one item!!! I love and kind of need something like the strappy to be here tank in teal and I also really need to replace a blouse that I have and the Classic Simplicity blouse in mint is just like it….
    But I also want this dress- but I think it would be way too short for me lol

    Pretty sure I would end up getting the tank and the blouse with the gift card if I won 🙂

    I love this bright pink color on you!
    Mint Julep always had the cutest stuff. I’ve had my eye on the Beach Bummin’ It Tank in Dark Gray – it’s so popular that it keeps selling out!

  21. June 2, 2015 / 12:27 am

    I love the Eternally Linked Top.

  22. June 2, 2015 / 3:13 am

    I’d get a cute top like the VIenn You Call Top, Mint. Perfect to wear with skinny jeans or a skirt (and perfect for nursing/pumping versus a dress for me at this point!)
