may. the. list.

Whoa. May has arrived, which means that the unofficial start of summer isn’t too far behind. To gear up for Memorial Day weekend, I’ve made sure to include plenty of stripes, sunnies and nautical blue in my latest roundup. Choosing the items for this month’s “the list” was a cinch, because there’s literally so many fun summery things (tassel necklaces galore!) to love right now. Check out what I’m currently coveting below!

1. Le Specs Flashy Flat Lens Mirrored Sunglasses (Shopbop) // Just how rad are these tortoiseshell cat-eye sunnies with mirrored lenses? Between a trip into the city and poolside lounging, these stylish shades won’t go unnoticed — especially when you pair them with a LBD or stripes. 
2. Madewell x Peanuts Joe Cool Tee (Madewell) // You guys, Madewell teamed up with Snoopy for a capsule collection and it’s seriously #goals. Between this shrunken Joe Cool t-shirt and this casual gray crewneck sweatshirt, it’s safe to safe that I need them both.   
3. Paloma Short (Sleepy Jones) // It’s officially time to start investing in summer jammies. These laid-back chic floral shorts from Sleepy Jones (my favorite sleepwear brand!) are practically made for lazy Sundays, mornings on the veranda — you name it.
4. Oversized Drop-Sleeve Striped T-Shirt (J.Crew) // Can you say perfect stripes for Memorial Day weekend (or better yet a yachting party)? Everything from the oversized fit to the cobalt blue has got me swooning hard.
5. Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish in Happy Days (Deborah Lippmann) // With endless fun in the sun days on the horizon, a long-lasting chip-resistant polish is exactly what the doctor ordered. Personally, I’m not into gel manicures, but I am curious to see how long this coral hue from Deborah Lippmann’s Gel Lab Pro collection holds up. No UV lamps are required!
6. Homeward-Bound Adventure-Bound Ring (Jet Set Candy) // I’m this close to splurging on this super cute adventure-bound airplane ring by Jet Set Candy. It’s perfect for both serious jetsetters and full-time wanderlusters alike. Not only is it 14K gold, but it’s etched with both “Adventure bound” and “Homeward bound” depending on where your upcoming travels take you.
7. Hokkaido Pendant-Navy/Hot Pink (BaubleBar) // Next to pom-pom embellished sandals, my biggest summer accessory obsession is tassels. I just can’t get enough of them! This navy and hot pink (!) ombré tassel necklace can be dressed up or down with a blouse, a plain ol’ tee or a denim shirt dress. The price point is just right, too.  
8. Farrow Echo Striped Shorts (Need Supply Co.) // Pale blue and white striped shorts, where have you been all of my life? When denim cutoffs read too casual, you need a pair of shorts this sophisticated and ladylike on standby. Pssst: If you’re into the whole off-the-shoulder trend, there’s even a matching crop top so that you can make it a set.
9. Collection Snakeskin Multistrap Sandals (J.Crew) // When it comes to summer, there’s nothing that I love more than a pair of flat strappy sandals (sorry, espadrilles!) that I can wear on the daily. These polka dot sandals are unfortunately online only, but boy are they cute. And they’re made in Italy, which is always a bonus!
