I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a piece by this designer for years, and when I stumbled upon this dress on sale I snapped it up! The brand works with small family farms to produce their fine materials (this one is a gossamer-like cotton) and artisans in India created the beautiful print. This is the blouse version of my silky soft dress and I love it for summer parties, patriotic holidays, and summer date nights.
This swimsuit has got to be my favorite sale find of the summer, and certainly my favorite swimsuit I now own! It’s extremely flattering, comfortable, and marked down to an unbelievable price. You can’t go wrong with a nautical themed bikini!
The sandal that keep selling out, and is it any wonder why? Handmade by skilled artisans in Italy, crafted of high quality leather and considerate design features, not to mention how perfect that bow is! Get yours before they sell out again in this gorgeous white, camel vachetta, and new gold nappa using code SARAHFLINT-BAMIAM.
As far as prints go, it doesn’t get much better than this in my book! French-inspired floral ticking stripes are hard to come by and typically come with a premium price tag but this one is not only attainable but perfect for all of your summer activities.
I own this dress and have never felt softer poplin cotton, nor worn a more figure flattering dress with this level of comfort. With a slightly defined waist, statement sleeves, and trendy triple-tie front, this dress can easily be worn to dinner, or the beach – I’ll be wearing it for dinner on our next vacation.
I’m always searching for elegant white blouses – simple enough for everyday but detailed enough to make me feel like I’m fully dressed for the day. This broderie anglaise number has all the right details; fabric covered buttons, puff sleeves, tie front, and trendy collar to make it the most elegant casual top.
Another designer I’ve swooned over for years is this one. I love the pink and mixed patterns of this dress but luckily, this is one of their staple styles so it comes in nearly every color/print combination you can imagine. Perfectly beachy, ready for exploration, and plenty of room in the waist for all the delicious summer treats you can handle – this one is a must!
For a tale of the one that got away, this top (actually a top and a dress) from this brand has been on my wish list for a few summers now. I’ve been waiting for this sweet tank to go on sale and sadly it’s sold out in my size everywhere, and still not on sale! Lesson learned, these go fast so get it when it’s in stock!
Raffia slides should be on every lady’s summer vacation packing list for their laid-back, beachy vibe and easy fit. I love sandals with a padded insole for walking as opposed to wearing sneakers. These are cute with dresses and shorts alike!
A summery color palette in perfect pima cotton to keep you cool on summer nights. There is a reason why this is the only pajama brand I buy! Keep an eye out for their semi-annual sale which usually takes place during the last week of July.
An elevated styling of the classic French market tote from my favorite handbag designer. I’m particularly drawn to the chic elongated handles and white/tan color combo. Watch for end of season sales to snag this beauty.
