5 cool raffia beach totes

searching for my summer go-to bag! check out my 5 favorite raffia beach totes over on jojotastic.com

You guys, the weather in Seattle the past couple of weeks has me feeling like I live in California! It’s been hot and sunny almost every day and, even though we’ve each been stocking up on summer basics, my outfits are still far from beach-ready. I’m still missing the most important part: a beach tote!

Raffia tote bags have a special place in my heart. I can hear waves crashing on the shore just from looking at all the bright colors and fun patterns of these vintage-inspired bags. Don’t even get me started how much I loved the ones with pom-poms, like Capri Woven Tote with Pom Charms (pictured above) from Nordstrom.

searching for my key summer wardrobe basics / staples and loving this casual maxi skirt, striped body con, paisley print shift, and strappy tank. more style inspiration on jojotastic.com

Happy Friday — it’s about time! It’s been pretty hot here in Seattle and I realized one thing: in the process of alllll of my moves (into my current house… from SF to Seattle… etc), I purged a lot, if not all, of my summer clothing. I have one pair of cut offs, some tanks, and some dresses. That’s all fine and dandy, but right now I’m feeling like what I’m left with isn’t exactly my style. The dresses feel too fussy for day-to-day wear while the cut offs are awesome, but not exactly appropriate attire for meeting new clients.

5 cool off the shoulder tops

now that things are warming up it's time to give 'em the cold shoulder - here's my 5 favorite off the shoulder tops on jojotastic.com

Nothing quite says summer like showing a little skin. I’m not talking about skimpy crop tops and short shorts, but instead, try giving just a glimpse with one of this season’s hottest trends — off the shoulder.

The That Girl Off The Shoulder Top (pictured above) by Free People is a stunner, in semi-sheer pale plum eyelet fabric. This vintage-inspired crop top features a ruffle overlay at the bust, giving it such a romantic feel. My favorite part are those cute gathered sleeves and it’s elastic neckline allows for an easy, effortless fit.

Happy weekend, you guys! I’m writing this from the plane cuz I’m on my way to Miami. It’s my bff’s bachelorette party, meaning that 8 of us are convening in Miami for some sun, drinks, and girl time.

It’s really starting to get hot here! I couldn’t be more excited for the early preview of summer weather, but my wardrobe just isn’t prepared for all this sunshine yet. It’s time to unpack the cutoffs and find my new go-to maxi dress for the season. Pair with a cute pair of clogs and get picnic ready!

This rosebud print cap-sleeve beauty is lined, so no stickiness on super warm days and has the cutest lattice lace insets all over. Perfect for summer strolls or twirling in a field of wildflowers, you know, the usual.
