The Edit

Summer officially starts next week and we couldn’t be more excited for everything this season has in store! Long days at the beach, testing out new recipes, and adding fresh accessories to our daily looks are just a few things our schedule will consist of this weekend. If you’re in the same boat, we have plenty of new finds to get you started with some Friday inspiration. From pretty pieces to add to your weekend wardrobe to delicious breakfast dishes you’ll want to whip up ASAP, keep reading today’s Edit to see how we’re kicking off this summer weekend…

Madewell Raffia Pom-Pom Zip Pouch

1. Madewell Raffia Pom-Pom Zip Pouch, $38
I just picked up this adorable woven pouch. I liked it because the pom-poms made it a fun piece, but it was neutral enough to wear with lots of different looks. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

Magic Dance Border Print Kimono

2. Magic Dance Border Print Kimono, $58
Since my wardrobe options have become a little more limited as I’ve grown, I’ve depended on fun layering pieces like this printed Kimono to add a little flair to my outfits. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

LC Lauren Conrad Cactus Flip Flops

3. LC Lauren Conrad Cactus Flip Flops, $12.99
When the weather warms up, I wear my LC Lauren Conrad flip flops constantly. And this year they came out with them in the cutest pink and green cactus print, and I couldn’t resist. They’re so adorable, and are definitely the most comfortable flip flops out there. – Rachel, Managing Editor

Paper Crown Rehoboth Sweater

4. Paper Crown Rehoboth Sweater, $198
No matter the time of year, you can always bet that I’ll have a sweater on hand. It may sound crazy, but I’d rather be too warm than any bit cold, even in the summer. Lucky for me (and all of the other sweater lovers out there), Paper Crown just brought back their coveted Rehoboth Sweater. Who can resist a good bow detail? I certainly can’t! – Jessi, Associate Editor

The Little Market Ikat Natural Dye Pillow in Tulum

5. The Little Market Ikat Natural Dye Pillow in Tulum, $78
My roommate of five years is getting married in September and moving out of our Santa Monica apartment… And she’s taking the throw pillows she bought for our place with her! So, I have a fun new decor project ahead of me. In my search for new pillows, I couldn’t resist this dyed version from The Little Market. I love the blue and white color combo, and the pattern will add an effortless coastal touch to my home. – Allison, Managing Editor

Slip for Beauty Slipsilk Pure Silk Sleep Mask

6. Slip for Beauty Slipsilk Pure Silk Sleep Mask, $45
I’m super sensitive to light at night, and even with blackout shades I prefer to wear a sleep mask much of the time too. I had tried a few other sleep masks in the past though, and none of them were truly comfortable. This 100 percent silk mask, however, has been seriously life changing! It’s so soft that I can hardly even feel it, but it blocks light completely. Well worth every penny! – Ilana, Managing Editor

Anthropologie Monogram Mugs

7. Anthropologie Monogram Mugs, $8.00 each
We did a shoot last week at our editor Allison’s adorable apartment, and I fell in love with her kitchen window display. She planted succulents in four of these monogram mugs from Anthropologie and spelled out “Home.” It’s the cutest idea, and I am definitely going to have to copy it! – Rachel, Managing Editor

Kodiak Cakes Dark Chocolate Pancake and Waffle Mix

8. Kodiak Cakes Dark Chocolate Pancake and Waffle Mix, $10.54
My obsession lately has been this protein-packed breakfast mix by Kodiak Cakes… I have been using it to make waffles every morning for the past week, and I feel like I’m having dessert for breakfast every time! It is so beyond good you’ll forget that you’re actually getting some good daily nutrients in just from eating waffles. I also have the Buttermilk & Honey flavor sitting on my shelf and I can’t wait to dig into it. – Tessa, Editorial Assistant

J.Crew Beaded Ball Earrings in Pacific Blue

9. J.Crew Beaded Ball Earrings in Pacific Blue, $65
I recently bought these earrings to wear to a friend’s wedding, and after how many compliments I received, I’ve been putting them on nearly every weekend. They’re the perfect shade of navy blue, so they go with my entire summer wardrobe, and the beads give off just a hint of sparkle, making them fun for a summer party. Plus, you can get 25% off if you enter the code YESPLEASE at checkout, so the price is right! – Allison, Managing Editor Sidekick Crossbody Circle Bag in Rosé

10. Sidekick Crossbody Circle Bag in Rosé, $75 can do no wrong in my eyes. When they launched their new collection of handbags I knew that this little guy had to come home with me ASAP. This crossbody is full of personality (I mean seriously, just look at it) and holds all of the essentials for a night out or brunch with the girls. I love it, there’s nothing more to say! – Jessi, Associate Editor
