Currently Loving .234

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! We started the week by celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary while we were in Puerto Rico! We had a fun day at our favorite beach and then went out to dinner at the cutest restaurant. It was such a special day! We got back from our trip Wednesday night and I spent all day Thursday getting our house back in order. I absolutely love traveling but there's also something super special about coming home. I'm grateful for travel and my home!

Today, I'm back to sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! If you are new around here, this post is truly my personally round up of what I'm currently using a lot from my own closet, items that I've recently purchased myself, or wish list picks of mine. I actually just got several of these items in the mail yesterday and I shared them on my Instagram stories. If you missed it, you can check out my summer style highlight to see more!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. P A J A M A S | I am currently wearing these pajamas as I type this! I absolutely love them! I used to buy cheaper pajamas similar to this from Target but they never stayed in good shape. I started investing in J. Crew pajamas last year and I will never go back to the cheap ones! But, I always wait for a sale. J. Crew is constantly running a sale and the last time I checked, this pair was 60% off! I personally like my pajamas to fit loose so I always size up in my pajamas.

2. S T R I P E D  T O P | This striped top is a wish list item! Stripes always catch my eye but what I am really loving about this top is the neckline. So pretty!

3. S H O R T S | These shorts are also pictured above and just arrived in my mailbox. I have been on the hunt for a pair of denim shorts that were at had a 6-7 inch inseam, were high waisted (but not too high waisted), flattering, not too tight on the thighs, and great quality. Yes, I was probably asking for a lot but this $20 pair of shorts definitely delivered! They are so cute! I always recommend sizing up in shorts so that they give you the most comfortable fit and that's what I personally did when I purchased this pair. They gave me the flattering fit I was looking for but I can still move and breathe in them. I am a big fan plus they come in three colors! If your size is out of stock, keep checking because they seem to sporadically restock sizes.

4. S A N D A L S | I bought these Teva sandals specifically for our Puerto Rico trip and I know people probably thought I was a little crazy for purchasing white, lol. But, I have great news! They held up great during our trip, even for hiking to waterfalls. If they got any dirt on them, I just washed it off. Bonus: they also look super cute with dresses! Wear them on a hike or to dinner. A great summer shoe! As far as sizing goes, I usually wear an 8.5 in most shoes and the 8 worked perfectly. If you are between sizes, I would recommend sizing down.

5. H A T | This hat has been a favorite item of mine since early spring! I wore a beanie all winter long and knew once it warmed up, I needed a warm weather hat option. I love the neutral color of this hat because it goes with everything. It's also adjustable with cute leather strap on the back. It's definitely a wardrobe staple for me... especially when I need an easy option for my hair!

6. B A G | I carry a belt bag of some sort about 90% of the time right now. I just really love the security of my belongings being close to me! I also wear mine over my shoulder so that it's right on my chest. I used to think this looked weird when I saw others do it but it's really just super practical! This black leather belt bag from Able is on my wish list. I always love the quality of their items!

7. E A R R I N G S | I love jewelry that is gold with shells! I have a similar pair of earrings and a bracelet that I wore every single day in Puerto Rico. Such a fun style for summertime!

8. D E N I M  T O P | I also just got this denim top (you can see it on below in this really low quality picture that I screenshotted from a boomerang haha)! I can't wait to actually wear it out and about. It's such a soft cotton and hemp materials plus the side ties are so darling! I sized up because I wasn't really sure about the fit but I think it's true to your regular top size, just depending on your height and how you want it to fit. I have on a medium for reference. I love it paired with denim (these are the denim shorts that I shared early in this post)!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!
