The Edit

Happy Friday, everyone! This week has flown by and we can’t believe it’s already time to round up our favorite finds. June can be a particularly busy month, with birthdays, baby showers, and backyard barbeques quickly filling up our social calendars. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, don’t forget to take some time for yourself! If you need some inspiration on how to slow things down and focus on what’s important, one of our editors found the perfect book to crack open this weekend. We also know the importance of a great new pair of shoes, so if that’s more your speed, don’t worry! And be sure to check out our favorite wardrobe additions, including easy pieces that you can wear all summer long.

LC Lauren Conrad Beach Shop Tropical Open Front Cover-Up

1. LC Lauren Conrad Beach Shop Tropical Open Front Cover-Up, $35.99
I recently wore this swimsuit cover-up on my babymoon in Hawaii. It’s safe to say that I fit right into the tropical paradise with this fun print. If you haven’t already, find this piece as well as other cover-ups and swimsuits in my latest LC Lauren Conrad Beach Collection. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

. Steve Madden Grace Slide Sandal

2. Steve Madden Grace Slide Sandal, $49.95
If there’s one sandal that I’ve been wearing nonstop lately, it would be these slides from Steve Madden. I even wore them to my baby shower last month! I love the rose gold pair that I have, but these shoes also come in four different colors, too. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

Paper Crown Tempe Top in Palm Print

3. Paper Crown Tempe Top in Palm Print, $148
I wore this bell-sleeved top for a shoot we did last month, and fell in love. I’m a sucker for anything palm print, and I love how the sleeves add a little extra femininity to this piece. It looks chic with skinnies and sandals, and would look equally adorable tucked into a skirt. – Rachel, Managing Editor

LC Lauren Conrad Cold Shoulder Ruffle Midi Dress

4. LC Lauren Conrad Cold Shoulder Ruffle Midi Dress, $34.99
This floral LC Lauren Conrad dress has the sweetest cold shoulder details, and I love how it hits at a mid-length—my favorite length to wear this season. I recently swooped up this style and paired it with a caged bag and my favorite LC Lauren Conrad Quarter Strap Sandals for an easy breezy summer look. – Allison, Managing Editor

The Little Market Mermaid Doll

5. The Little Market Mermaid Doll, $26
When I saw this sweet purple-haired mermaid from The Little Market, I knew it would make a splash (pun intended) with my daughter, especially as we spend more time at the beach. Plus these also come in a set of three, which means I know what I’ll be bringing to baby showers this summer… – Ilana, Managing Editor

Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist

6. Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist, $13.65
A friend recently introduced me to this book and it instantly felt like something that I needed to read. So often I get lost in the day-to-day of life and that doesn’t always feel good or fulfilling. I’m excited to crack open this book that encourages us all to leave our frantic, busy lifestyles behind and reengage with the people we were meant to be with. I’ll let you know how it goes! – Jessi, Associate Editor

M.Gemi The Cesta Sandals in Tan

7. M.Gemi The Cesta Sandals in Tan, $178
When the weather is warm, I pretty much exclusively wear slide sandals. I have quite the collection (because they are essentially all I wear), and my go-to tan pair of slides have seen better days. So when I saw these pretty braided slides from M.Gemi, I knew they would be the perfect replacement. – Rachel, Managing Editor

Rugs USA Wool Braided Rug in Ivory

8. Rugs USA Wool Braided Rug in Ivory, $84-$810
I just bought this rug for my living room during a Memorial Day sale, and got it for a steal. (But honestly, you don’t even need a sale to buy it because it’s so affordably priced for a rug already.) I’ve been looking for a textured woven rug like this one for months, but could never bring myself to take the plunge since it’s more of a “want” than a “need.” I can’t wait to add this to my living room, and I know it will bring together our décor perfectly. – Tessa, Editorial Assistant

Gorjana Chloe Mini Necklace

9. Gorjana Chloe Mini Necklace, $55
I have been looking for a delicate disc necklace for a few months now, and I was so excited when I came across this pretty piece by Gorjana. It’s the perfect shade of yellow gold, and you can bet I’ll be wearing it all summer long! – Allison, Managing Editor

Anthropologie Maeve Cascade Tiered Shell

10. Anthropologie Maeve Cascade Tiered Shell, $58
I just ordered this sweet, flutter-sleeved top in red from Anthropologie. I don’t have a lot of red in my wardrobe, but I loved how it looked in this bold hue (although I may have to order it in white too!). I plan on pairing it with white denim or cut-off shorts for summer. – Ilana, Managing Editor
