Perfect White Pants

A good pair of white a white pants that don't add on the lbs or show off your undies is hard to come by! We love white pants for summer and feel like they brighten up any outfit.  We've rounded up a few of our favorite, tried and true pairs below.  Links at the bottom of the post!

Regan's are obviously her faves, since she's worn them in the last two posts 😂.  Hey, when you know, you know!

Oceanside Harbor

You all know by now that we love a good casual summer look with a cute, comfortable wedge! Yep, this is our go-to for sure.

It's actually so awesome having sisters (and a mom) who all share the same style.  We all own the same tops and jeans in different colors/washes and can easily borrow and rotate clothes between each other 😂.  I (Regan) am actually borrowing my mom's Madewell top here, and Paige's necklace. Hehe.

You may have already seen Paige's bag in her favorite things post.  It's super inexpensive and adds something so cute to any #basic outfit. Details below!

6 Ways to Wear Your New Favorite Accessory!

I feel like that title is suuuper long, but also very accurate.

If you haven't jumped on the hair/neck/wrist scarf train yet, you need to get in on this! These cute scarves/bandanas that are so in right now are the perfect accessory to add to any outfit.  The one's I've found and am wearing in this post are also super inexpensive.  Today I'm sharing my favorite ways to wear them.

1. Tied around the wrist.

This was the first way I ever accessorized with a scarf.  It's subtle, but adds a cute little pop of color to any neutral outfit.  To tie, fold the scarf into a triangle, then continue to fold until it becomes long and thin.  I placed my wrist (palm facing down) on top of the middle section of the scarf, then wrapped each end up and around my wrist twice, so that the two ends ended up on top of my wrist.  I then tied the ends in a double knot. 

2. Tied at the end of a braid.

I love this style, especially when wearing a hat! I think this looks best with a looser braid, and with extra hair left out on the ends.  Secure your braid with a hair tie, then double knot your scarf (after you've folded it up long and narrow), with the knot above the hair tie so it stays secure. 

3. Around a top knot.

Lately I've been loving wearing my (3-day post washed) hair in a half-up top knot! I love having my hair out of my face, and this is a cute way to keep it up while still having some hair showing. First, secure your hair in a top knot using a hair tie. I do my half-up top knots by wrapping my hair around like a ballerina bun, then pulling it apart a little to create a messier look. With this look, you want your bun to be pretty high on top of your head so that you can still see some hair over the top of the scarf.

 Take your folded up scarf and start with the middle part of the scarf at the back of your bun, tie both ends around to the front, cross over, and then cross over again in the back.  Tie the two ends in a double knot at the front of the bun.  You may have to adjust how many times you tie it around depending on how long your scarf is.

4. Around your neck.

This is probably the most common way you see people wearing scarves. Again, I love how it adds just a little something to a simple outfit. For this look, just fold up your scarf so it's long and narrow again, then start with the middle of the scarf at the back of your neck and tie the ends in front.  I like to tie mine off to the side.

5. Wear as a headband.

This is another cute and fun way to keep some of my hair back and out of my face. To tie, tuck your hair behind your ears, then place the middle part of the scarf under the bottom of your hair, and tie the ends together at the top, right over where your hair is parted.

6. Around a messy bun.

This is similar to the half-up top knot look, but I love wearing a scarf this way when I'm throwing all my hair up at the pool or beach! It just looks cuter 🙃

7. BONUS STYLE: Tie around your favorite bag.

Had to add this in because I love the look of a scarf that matches your outfit, tied around your bag!

I linked the two scarves pictured in the photos above, as well as some of my other favorite scarves below. Although the scarf in the beach photos is currently sold out 😭 but the store I got it from has some other super cute ones.  Find them here (use code saltyblondes for free shipping on your order).

Tie Front Summer Tops

Hi friends! We just wanted to put together a quick post sharing another one of our favorite trends this summer.  Tie front tops!

We love this trend for summer because it just adds such a cute element to a basic tee with jeans look! Some of our favorites are from Madewell (pictured below), but we found lots of other cute ones too that we've linked at the bottom of this post!

Summer Dresses

Anyone else LIVE in dresses all summer? One of our favorite summer combos is dresses with denim!

Below are our two dresses pictured, along with some of our other favorite easy, summer dresses this season!

Paige's Favorite Things

Hello! I have so many things I'm LOVING lately that I wanted to get on and share them with you! NONE of these are sponsored. I just really love them all and wanted to share the goodness! Below are 10 of my current favorite things :)

1.

Straw Tote

I finally got one this year and have to say it just adds something to your outfit. The one I'm holding above and have linked is from BP so it's super affordable (under $40)! It goes with everything and you can switch out the little pom hooked on it to one of your own or a cute scarf! Super fun for summer!


 

2.

Salt and Pepper Grinders

With gorgeous wood and the base, a white marble top for the salt, and black marble for the pepper, what's not to love! They sit out front and center in my kitchen and I love looking at them :)


 

3.

T-Shirt Dress

Under $60, ruched side (flattering), midi length and super cute! Need I say more? I got it in the color Rust Madder


 

4.

Gift Wrap Cart

Ok this may be random, but I LOVE this gift wrap organizer! I used to have everything just shoved in a closet is our old house. I finally got this from my mother-in-law and am obsessed. It fits perfectly in an average sized coat closet, so we put it in the one in our office. I keep boxes in the bottom two larger drawers, and cards, tissue paper etc in the top three smaller drawers. As you can see in the photo below theres a spot on the sides for wrapping paper and ribbon too!

5.

BKR Spiked Water Bottle

So I bought one of these and loved it so much that I reached out to the company to see if they'd send me another larger one in exchange for love on the blog. They never wrote back haha. Oh well. Still one of my favorite things! I got one initially because I wanted a glass water bottle to cut back on drinking so many plastic ones! Now I take it with me everywhere I go and get so many compliments on it! It's almost like a little accessory :)


 

6.

Freshly Picked Fanny Pack

They call it a "park pack" but...it's a fanny pack haha. I got one with a gift card I had and love it! Great for multiple reasons. For one, it's so nice to be totally hands free if I'm running out somewhere without the diaper bag. There's slots for your cards, my iPhone plus fits in it perfectly, and there's an extra hidden zipper pocket on the back! Secondly, it actually covers your lower belly so if you've eaten a lot and are wearing a tight shirt or dress nbd! Just throw on your fanny and it's magically camouflaged :)

7.

OluKai Sandals

I've posted about these before and am posting again! I love these so much and they're the ONLY flip flops I can where ALL day whether I'm walking miles and miles on vacation or just around town. They have the comfiest soles and perfect arch support!


 

8.

GIGI PIP Baseball Caps

You've probably seen me wearing them multiple times on our instagram stories, because I have one on all the time! All of their hats are the cutest, but I especially love the look and fit of their baseballs caps! Use code: saltyblondes at checkout with them for free shipping!

9.

Ted Baker Fitted Tee

Ok guys, these tees are pricey (fair warning)! I got one with a gift card and then had to get another when I saw one on sale because the fit is so perfect! They have a couple questionable prints haha, but there are some cute ones too and they're so flattering and comfy! I love them because they're made out of a nicer fabric, so they not only look great tucked into high waisted jeans, but with skirts too!


 

10.

Espadrilles

I love these because they're the perfect summer sandal, super comfy and under $100! I may have them in multiple colors #shopaholic


 

Bonus:

Glotrition

Ok guys, I'm including this as a bonus but not actually on the list for a few reasons: 1. It's KIND OF sponsored (I got it for free). BUT I reached out to THEM for it. 2. It's expensive!

That being said, I do love the product. It tastes yummy, and although it may be the placebo affect I feel like my skin actually looks better already! Basically it's a collagen peptide drink mix (all the rage these days) with other supplements in it too like Biotin which are supposed to help your hair, skin and nails look fabulous. I've been taking it for a week and really like it so far!

Basic Tees

If you've been following us for a while, then you know we LIVE for a good basic tee.  We like to keep it casual 90% of the time, and when we find a good casual t-shirt, we usually buy it in multiple colors!

Regan: Tee // Denim // Jacket (similar) // Shoes // Hat

Paige: Tee // Denim // Sandals // Hat


These striped Madewell tees are a couple of our most recent favorites, and they pair perfectly with our most frequently worn, high waisted Madewell jeans!

We love how casual this look is for summer, especially when worn with these adorable jean + linen baseball caps!

We linked more of our favorite, tried + true basic tees below. 

To name a few:

The Madewell Whisper Cotton Tee

This is Sidney + Regan's favorite, most over-worn (lol) tee.  They both have them in multiple colors.  This is one that Madewell always has in stock, and is always coming out with in new colors.  There are also always colors that will go on sale for $14, so make sure to check to see which ones are marked down!


The Michael Stars Shine Tee

Paige's favorite for a staple, fitted tee! We get them from

Anthropologie

 (head to the link to view all their different styles in the 'Shine Tee').  These tees have a fun shimmery material, and are really good quality! They come in different colors, and styles, and come and and go during different seasons.  So just keep your eye out on the

Anthro

site if you don't see the color/style you love currently available.


Sol Angeles Tees

We've talked about these before.  Also a tee we like to get from

Anthropologie

.  These are just cute graphic tees that come in so many cute designs and with different sayings.   Definitely a little more pricey, but there are always styles going on sale, which is when we like to buy them! Plus, Anthro often does 20-30% off sale items, which marks them down even more! You can also check out the

Sol Angeles

website and buy directly from them.

Wedding Season - What to Wear

In honor of Sidney's wedding coming up this weekend (what?!), we thought we'd post a couple summer wedding attire ideas! Wedding season is in full force, and what's worse than having nothing to wear or having to worry about going out and buying something new each time a friend or family member gets hitched?! We're so over worrying about what to wear, and wanted to show a couple easy outfits that work as wedding attire, but also can be worn over and over again as daytime dresses or church outfits. 

Dress up a more casual skirt and basic top with a fancy statement necklace to make your outfit look more formal…

Choose a flowing knee length, fun summer dress that you can dress up with pumps or dress down with a cute sandal wedge…

We don't know about you, but our favorite type of weddings are ones that double as full blown dance parties, so we like to wear things we can move around in! Being able to "drop it low" if we feel so inclined is obviously important, so we don't want to wear anything too short or too tight to avoid flashing our fellow wedding goers! Just something to think about ;)

Anyways, thanks for reading! All outfit details are linked below :) Hope you all are having a great start to your summer!

Summer Whites

There's nothing better than white crop pants in the summer…they brighten up any outfit and show off your cute summer sandals!

Pair with a bright summer top, or go white on white with a little print or graphic tee. And yes, Paige is wearing this top on repeat because it's her new favorite! Outfit links and details below :)
