Summer Fashion Trend: Pineapples

BB8315Above images from Francesca’

I might sound biased because pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, but I am obsessed with the pineapple craze this summer. From accessories to decor or clothing, I have been seeing pineapples featured everywhere.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring some of my favorite items I’ve found from Francesca’s sporting this summer trend. Here are five of my favorites:

Jewelry Holder: This holds everyday jewels you wear regularly while staying festive for summer. If you’re looking for functional and festive tray to hold your jewelry, this holder is perfect for you.

Shorts: Who doesn’t love fabric shorts? They’re comfortable and are prettier than your standard denim shorts. If you’re looking to step out of your comfort zone, pick up these shorts to wear to a bon fire with your friends.

Phone Case: If you change up your phone case based on the season, add this one to your collection. It’s beach worthy and will keep you thinking about summer even when the warm days have passed.

Canvas Shoes: I love canvas shoes because they’re comfortable and versatile. Why not try pineapple-patterned ones? Take a navy dress and make it pop with these shoes. You’ll create a comfortable, chic look.

Watch: Put your Michael Kors away for the day and bring out this watch for a day of summer fun. The cork band gives the watch a laid-back look if you don’t want to worry about ruining your fancy watch.

What item is your favorite? Have you been wearing anything with pineapples on it this summer, or are you not a fan of this trend? Leave a comment below!

If you have best friends who are obsessed with makeup, it’s only natural to get them something beauty related for their birthdays. But after a few years, you begin buying the same items: Bath & Body Works, Sephora gift cards or a new Essie nail polish.

It’s time to switch it up for your bestie.

Summer, especially in 2015, is all about safe tanning and achieving a gorgeous glow without laying in a tanning bed. It only seems natural to help your best friend this summer and pick up some safe-sun products. Here are some of my favorites:

St. Tropez face and body lotion:

This is an inexpensive lotion that will help you achieve an all-over glow. What’s great about this product is that it gives you a streak-free tan that lasts for up to 24 hours.

Little black book of bronzers:

With eight signature bronzers to choose from, your bestie will have plenty of options for a bronzed look. This is perfect if you’re not sure what bronzer she likes. The more bronzers, the better.

Tarte self tanner:

This self-tanner contains ingredients your skin will love including: maracuja oil, which replenishes and brighten skin’s appearance and vitamin E, which protects against damage.Your skin will thank you!

Bronze compact:

The lightweight formula won’t weight you down during warm summer days. It’s enriches with vitamin E and jojoba oil, which will work wonders for your skin.

Exfoliating soap:

Get rid of dry, dull skin while cleansing the body to reveal a smooth complexion. Before applying self-tanner, use the exfoliating soap to give your skin the smooth, sleek texture you want.
