We’re taking our first trip to the beach with Henry this weekend and am so glad to have one of these Hollie & Harrie Sombrilla canopies to bring with us to keep him out of the sun! Old school umbrellas are such a pain to carry and when the wind blows…forget it! Chasing an umbrella down the beach as it acts like a giant dart isn’t my idea of F-U-N.
I’m loving the patterns and colors and the fact that it’s got high and low sun “settings”.
And it’s super light and easy to carry- and when heading to the beach with family, there is already enough to lug around.
I’m so happy to welcome Hollie & Harrie to the EOS Sponsor family! As I plan for this trip I wanted to round up a nice beach-day look for grown ups and kids- and some fun things to pack to make the day enjoyable!

I posted a throwback picture from a few years ago on Facebook recently in which I was wearing some leather pants I had raved about. A friend asked me if I still wore them and if I would do a post on investment pieces I don’t regret buying/ still wear all the time. I thought it was a great idea. It’s hard to pull the trigger on higher priced items, it’s so scary to invest in clothing, but sometimes it’s so very worth it. When you wear something non-stop and it’s made well it makes more financial sense than lots of cheaper items you wear once or twice and then they shrink/fall apart/ fall out of style. Some I even buy again once I’ve worn through them, and some torture me because they are not made anymore (I’m looking at you suede Tory Burch flats with jeweled bows!!!! RIP)
So here are 15 things I invested in (some not even SO pricey i.e. J.Crew) that have become total staples in my wardrobe.
I am so happy to announce the release of my newest design for my jewelry collection with M.Flynn- the Lucky Ladybugs! I have always been charmed by the tradition of making a wish when a ladybug lands on you (the only bug that doesn’t send me into psychotic jerky spasms if it lands on me). They are such beautiful tiny creatures and I wanted to use the concept of the lucky ladybug and create tiny stud earrings in their honor. So here are the fabulous everyday studs and also a dainty pendant necklace made in 14k gold with tiny full cut diamonds (most jewelry with small diamonds like this doesn’t use full cut diamonds) for the dots and even the eyes! Subtle but sparkly.
Last weekend one of my friends was wearing this amazing poncho (and basically the entire first outfit I pulled together below) and I was OBSESSED with it. I tackled her to look and see who made it and found it was by Ulla Johnson, whose designs I’ve seen a couple times in passing at Barney’s. But when I went online to find said poncho, I fell madly in love with almost every single thing she is making for spring! It’s glamorous bohemian in the best way possible (and so. many. tassels. y’all.) Unfortunately, on me -who is taller and broader in the shoulders than my friend who wore it best- it gave me the silhouette of an overgrown, vaguely ethnic SpongeBob SquarePants. Sadness. But there are other items I will be snapping up for summer (a few really good ones on sale too!)
