Trending Style for Summer 2018: Rainbow Stripes

I’m going on a little vacation in a couple of weeks, so I’ve been especially interested in all of the summer style trends. All of the breezy and colorful pieces have caught my eye. I have absolutely been swooning over pastel rainbow stripes! There’s a one-piece swimsuit from Tularosa that I’ve seen Patricia Bright wear as a bodysuit under denim shorts that has sort of sparked my obsession with this pastel pattern. While I have a strange emotional attachment to this piece, it’s $178 — I can’t justify spending that on something I will likely wear one time. To quell this unrequited love, I’ve looked into some other more affordable alternatives that I want to share.

Okay, so as I’m inserting the screenshot of this Tularosa swimsuit, I’m remembering how much I want to add it to my wardrobe.

I hope that you can sort of get the vibe that I’m going for — I love the soft pastels and how casual-cool they look.


I tried to look for more wearable pieces that I would be able to wear for many summers to come. I find these to be a little more timeless, but just as cute! You can click the photos in the gallery below to see the full images, as well as a link to where you can purchase an item.

There’s a pretty good mix of brands and styles so I think everyone can find something to be inspired by on the list.


What are your favorite pieces in the gallery? I’m loving the Nike Epic React Flyknits in Beige — I have been holding off on purchasing them because I’ve been spending too much on beauty products, but I truly do need a new pair of sneakers.

Also, I’ve added a little section to my blog’s home page where you can actually shop my wishlist! Some of the products currently listed there are listed above, but I’ll be updating that section as I come across new products I’ve been dying to try.
