The sweet arrival of summertime is finally upon us. I know that every season is basically deemed the chicest yet, but this summer has a little bit of everything that I’m head-over-heels for. Besides sliding into my favorite swimsuit almost every day (P.S. have you seen the new LC Lauren Conrad Beach Shop Collection?), I’m trying to be more intentional with what I fill my summer wardrobe with. For me, that looks like paying more attention to detail and maybe making an investment here and there. But, in true Style Steals fashion, I’d be lying if I didn’t check for bargains before adding a big purchase into my shopping cart. That’s where today’s post comes in. I’m a sucker for ruffles that will catch a coastal breeze, wide brim hats tied with a bow to keep the sun off my face, and tiny tassels on my favorite sandals—all of which you can find below for a splurge or a steal. I’ll let you decide…
