Summertime Essentials + Margarita Time

Summertime Essentials + Margarita Time

Maybe it's that I'm dreaming of a vacation or that temps here are in the 80s this week, either way I am already getting ready for days spent at the beach or pool. It's been a few years since I last bought a new swimsuit and I am majorly loving this scalloped one. I first saw this coverup on Natalie during her trip to TX and love the tassel details. Anyone else thinking of grabbing these sandals for summer? Jacks have always been my go to sandal and I love that these can be worn to the beach or pool and I wouldn't be worried about ruining them. Asos always has a great selection of sunglasses for a great price and these over-sized pair definitely grabbed my attention. Throw in a good fedora, beach blanket and sunscreen and I am set for summer and one happy girl. 

Also being that today is Cindo de Mayo, it seemed appropriate to share one of my favorite margarita recipes! I have been all about some tequila lately, and this little drink has quickly become a favorite to make come 5:00 on Friday. It's easy, has minimal ingredients, and doesn't have a "mixer" taste to it. 

1/2 cup of good quality tequila. My go to lately has been Espolon Blanco Tequila
3 tablespoons Agave or simple syrup 
4 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
 Add all ingredients to a glass, add some ice and salt to the rim, stir, and enjoy!

What are some of your summer essentials?

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann

Love that coverup! I can't live without my nude Tory burch flops that are plastic for the beach but still dressy enough to wear during the day!
