Our Favorite Warm Weather Essentials

Spring Forward

An extra hour of sunshine means it’s officially time to shed those itchy sweaters and head outdoors for a dose of Vitamin D! Pack your pool bag and slather on some sunscreen, because we’ve got your spring and summer vacay must-haves. Scroll on for the roundup!

Picnic Perfect

Whether you’re waterside or headed to the park for a picnic, having an outdoor blanket and yummy snacks are the ideal way to prep for a day in the sun. Look for lightweight throws that are easy to fold up in a bag and crisp white dishware that allow your light bites to take center stage.


Lounge-Worthy Luxuries

When your day is begging for a little R&R, create a lounge area worthy of a five-star resort with comfortable chairs, towels, and pillows. Pull in a cocktail table or garden stool to keep all your essentials within reach.

Expert Tip: Go for a chaise on wheels that can easily move around the lawn when you’re hunting for some much-needed shade.

SUNsational Styles

We adore a solid spring/summer wardrobe and have a total thing for natural materials (both in fashion and interiors), so you’ll find woven hats and bags topping our list of accessories. For a fun pop of color, dress your bag up with a brightly patterned scarf!

Reach for cover-up perfection with one of MIRTH’s 100% cotton, artisan-crafted caftans! Not only do these lightweight beauties protect you from the sun, but they provide ethical employment for weavers and printers across India, sustaining a beloved heritage craft.

While we love them for the pool, they’re also stylish enough to wear to brunch or about town. Lastly, don’t forget to protect those eyes with a stylish pair of sunnies!

Happy Hour

What’s not to love about a light and refreshing cocktail that’s also low in sugar? Palomas (whether classic or Italian) definitely fit the bill! With a super simple list of ingredients, these cocktails are a summer happy hour staple.
