Friday has finally rolled around, and we couldn’t be more excited! Now that the weather has warmed up here in Southern California, we can’t wait to hit the beach and have some fun with our wardrobes. From trying out a palm print bathing suit to rocking a pair of fun tassel earrings, this weather makes us want to experiment with new styles. Even if it’s not warm yet where you live, we’ve got plenty of great picks in store. Cozy up with a wanderlust-inducing new read, or try out a chic pair of sneakers guaranteed to make you want to hit the gym…or at least look cute while running errands. Whatever your weekend has in store, be sure to scroll down to see what we’ve picked for this week’s LC.com Edit!
1. Kate Spade New York Cinched Bow Sunhat, $88
I rarely head to the beach without a sunhat in tow. With the weather heating up, I’ve started looking for the perfect hat and came across this little number from Kate Spade. I can’t resist a good bow detail. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
2. Steven Jazlyn Espadrille Mules, $99
What don’t I love about these espadrille mules? They’re perfect for slipping on and running out the door and can be worn all throughout spring and summer. Plus they come in blush pink and black—it was difficult to choose a color! – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
3. Paper Crown Karoo Top, $148
I wore this top at a recent LaurenConrad.com photo shoot and fell completely in love! The scalloped hem is adorable, and the print screams springtime. I love pretty much everything Paper Crown does, and this top is no exception. – Rachel, Managing Editor
4. The Little Market Reusable Gift Bags, $10 – $12
I’m always looking for ways to green my life and cut down on waste, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t have an affinity for cute gift-wrapping. Since wrapping a present in old newsprint just isn’t an option in my opinion, I was so pleased to discover The Little Market’s new line of reusable burlap gift bags. They come in different sizes (including wine totes) and have the most adorable sayings printed on them like “hooray” and “let’s party.” I feel good giving them to my friends knowing that they look chic and that they can be used over and over again afterward. – Ilana, Managing Editor
5. LC Lauren Conrad Hoop Earrings, $11.70
Hoop earrings have been having a moment lately, and for good reason. I love the delicate style of these LC Lauren Conrad earrings, and the little stones make them extra special. Not to mention they’re incredibly affordable, too! – Allison, Managing Editor
6. Nike Free Run Flyknit 2 Running Shoe, $120
If you’ve seen me lately, I’ve probably been wearing these shoes… whether or not I’m working out. I injured my foot a while back, and these running shoes have helped so much! When you wear them it literally feels like you’re walking on a cloud, and the material feels like a pair of socks instead of shoes. I’ve been wearing them constantly, and I plan on picking up a new pair when this cute collection comes out! – Rachel, Managing Editor
7. Baublebar Piñata Tassel Drops, $36
My husband and I are attending a wedding next month and I thought it would be a fun opportunity to purchase these statement earrings that I’ve had my eye on! I’m going for bold colors lately and these tassel drops come in perfectly hot hues. Plus they have a bunch of other great colors for just about any occasion. I’m smitten! – Jessi, Associate Editor
8. ASOS Exotic Palm Print Plunge Bikini Top, $18.50 and High Waisted Bottoms, $25
I just ordered this swimsuit from ASOS, and I can’t wait to get it in the mail. Since I’m curvy, it’s hard to find a two-piece that flatters both my waist and my hips at the same time, and I think this high waist and high cut leg combo will be my golden ticket. Plus, that palm print is so fun and summery, how can you not love it?! Oh, and for a grand total of less than $45… this bikini can do no wrong. – Tessa, Associate Editor
9. India Hicks: Island Style, $31.92
I’m completely coffee table book addicted and always on the hunt for a new read to add to my collection. I’ve had my eye on the book India Hicks: Island Style for a few months now because I’ve been feeling particularly inspired by the Caribbean (wanting to plan a trip soon!). And after flipping through this book, I was not disappointed… Its beautiful pages takes readers on a journey through India’s gloriously bohemian lifestyle and gives tips on how to decorate your home with the words “island paradise” in mind. Warning: wanderlust may ensue! – Allison, Managing Editor
10. Loeffler Randall Winnie Debauchee, $295
On days where I wear a lot of neutral colors or more classic pieces, I always like to balance my outfit out with a fun pair of statement shoes. Between the metallic silver leather and the silky tassels, this Loeffler Randall mule certainly fits the bill. These were a splurge purchase that I had on my wish list for a long time before buying them, and I’m so glad I did because I’ve been wearing them almost every day since. – Ilana, Managing Editor
