The sun is officially out and temperatures are finally no jacket required as we get closer and closer to Memorial Day Weekend back at our favorite beach towns! While Pinkly Perfect’s given you many reasons to buy beach inspired fashion in the off-season, we are so happy to launch our first capsule of the Summer 2018 collection.

 

Below are our favorites:

 

Avalon Sweatshirt, Flamingo Besties:

PinklyPerfectGreySweatshirtFlamingo

Not only is our best selling sweatshirt back, but it’s better than ever with a pink pair of flamingos.

 

Forever Avalon, NJ Embroidery Patch:

PinklyPerfectForeverAvalonBadge

This may be our favorite new addition as it’s something completely new! Our “Forever Avalon, NJ” patches are 2” x 2” and can be sewn onto literally anything from your backpack to your beach bag to your beach towel to your denim jacket. We love this as a little “card stuffer” to include as a bonus birthday gift.

 

Bar Harbor Hat, Blue Denim:

PinklyPerfectBarHarborHat

We first introduced the Bar Harbor Hat last summer and quickly sold out! This year, we added a washed blue denim as more of a neutral color and we can’t help but be reminded of something MK & A would wear. 😉

 

Dennis Greeting Card, Bikini vs. Ice Cream Card:

PinklyPerfectBikiniCard

A “just because” card gets a summer makeover with the ultimate struggle that beach babes face every June-August. “My mind says bikini but my heart says three scoops and extra sprinkles.”

20160304 Maddy Sasso Pinkly Perfect-32

We’ve heard summer weather is approaching ASAP (about time, right?). That means it’s time to shop for your new favorite swimsuit for summer 2018. Enough time has passed since the holidays, Valentine’s, and Easter that it’s officially almost summer season.

 

We found the best pink one-pieces that are worth a little splurge as an investment this summer and recommend buying them soon before your size sells out! Take a look below:

 

Tularosa Nina One Piece Swimsuit, $138

This pink one-piece features our favorite neckline with wire support and optional halter tie strap. Mesh panels and pom pom trim add a touch of texture that are perfect to accompany a solid color swimsuit!

 

Sunsets One Piece Tank, $100

While the front may be fairly simple, the back on this pink Veronica swimsuit steals the show! A+ for adjustable straps and hidden shelf bra.

 

Private Party Girl Power Swimsuit, $99

There are zero ways you can go wrong with a bubblegum pink, classic California fit, and a little girl power. Plus, it’s so insta-worthy.

 

L*Space Rita Reversible One Piece Swimsuit, $169

Reversible between navy and hot pink!? Yes, please! Let’s divide this price by two and get $84.50 per swimsuit and it’s a steal.

The Winter Boots You’ve “Bean” Looking For!

pinkly.perfect.style.your.winter.boots

Written by: Sarah Felbin

Winter weather often means unearthing drab coats, thick scarves, and your trusty snow boots that have lived in your closet since middle school. It’s not often that a piece of winter wear is both functional and chic – until now! We’re referring, of course, to Bean Boots, the all-weather footwear taking the winter season by storm.

 

If you already own a pair, you know that Bean Boots are perfect for stomping around in all kinds of rain, snow, sleet, or hail. (If you don’t, now you do!) But besides that, they’re also cuter than your average hiking boot, and come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colors. Below, see some of our favorite ways to wear them!

 

stripes.and.bean.boots

Cozy neutrals and classic stripes make for the perfect winter look! Add a scarf to stay stylish in even the coldest temperatures, like this (pink!) one from ASOS.

 

pink.rain.coat.bean.boots

Bean Boots look extra preppy when paired with an upgraded coat – check out this lookalike from H&M here or try a new color like green or bright yellow!

 

plaid.bean.boots.style

Pink plaid and Bean Boots go together like PB&J, and fun socks not only keep your feet warm but also make a fashion statement! A gingham shirt is another great option, or try this large check instead – and don’t forget the perfect pair of pink socks!

 

oversized.bean.boots

Get comfy with an oversized pink sweatshirt, leggings, and a knit hat. We love this blush pullover from ASOS or this faux fur one from Go Jane!

Iconic TV Characters and What They Would Buy from Pinkly Perfect

topanga.pinkly.perfect

Although we’ve yet to spot any celebs wearing our beach-inspired fashion and accessories, we know they’d be perfect for some of our favorite TV icons. Below is our dream list of favorite female leads and the accessories that we know they’d love!

 

Betty Draper, Mad Men

Cape May, NJ Keychain

betty.draper

Betty Draper is oh-so relateable for her love of the Jersey shore, just like most all Pinkly Perfect fans! Her family has a history of getting off the parkway at exit zero, which is why our Cape May, NJ keychain would be perfect for her to grab on her way to summer vacation!

 

Olivia Pope, Scandal

BOSS Bracelet

Olivia.Pope

If anyone thinks there’s a bigger lady boss on television than Olivia Pope, then you’re straight up wrong. We know she’d rock her metallic gold BOSS bracelet all day and night, even when indulging in red wine and popcorn.

 

Cast of Gossip Girl

XOXO Bracelet

gossip.girl.cast

“Gossip girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. Who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me, xoxo, gossip girl” Enough said.

 

Tamera, Sister Sister

Newport Cosmetic Bag, Say No to Summer Reading

tamera.mowry

When Tamera wasn’t shouting “Go home Roger!”, she was pretty much doing anything other than schoolwork. We know she’d be all about saying no to summer reading and yes to movie dates with her hot BF Jordan.

 

Rory Gilmore, Gilmore Girls

Avalon Sweatshirt, Teal

Rory.Gilmore

The only people who love coffee more than I do is Rory and Lorelai. Our Avalon Sweatshirt in Teal is perfect for a comfy night in studying at Yale or working on her school’s newspaper.

 

Topanga Lawrence, Boy Meets World

Newport Cosmetic Bag, You’re Perfect

Topanga

Cory and Topanga’s relationship was #goals for any Boy Meets World fan. While they had their ups and downs like any high school sweethearts, we know Cory would have loved to gift his girl a Newport Cosmetic Bag in pink glitter “You’re Perfect.”

Nothing Basic About Basic Invite | Custom Bridal Invitations

custom.bridal.shower.invites

Even though it may seem like an overload of Christmas and New Year’s themed everything lately, for those of you lucky enough to be on bridesmaid duty come Spring & Summer 2018, you’re probably more overwhelmed with the planning of showers, bachelorettes, luncheons, and of course, weddings!

 

Between NYE and next September, I’ll be going to 8 weddings across Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Texas, and Mexico. I’m a bridesmaid in two, and another is my sister’s wedding so I will be very, very busy to say the least. Luckily all with things right up my alley like planning parties, picking out pretty flowers, dress shopping, dancing like crazy, and celebrating with (lots of) champagne and cake.

 

For the newly engaged couples, it’s not just the wedding they’re planning. The love birds will be sending out engagement announcements, save the dates, wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations, and bachelor & bachelorette party invites.

 

But sending out creative and completely customizable invites doesn’t need to be hard! In fact, with Basic Invite it is SO easy and actually really fun, especially if you’re the creative type.

 

One of the things I dislike the most about using online services for invitations is that you never get to see the actual hard copy before ordering production. But with Basic Invite, you can actually receive a sample (including the envelope—hint: they have over 40 different color options) to review prior to placing an order.

 

Another plus is that the invites are completely customizable with over 180 color combinations to choose from! Got a couple hours to spare this weekend? Play (yes, it really feels like you’re playing) around with their templates and custom features. You’ll be surprised with how long you’re on there for.

 

I was lucky enough to get some samples to review in person and I am so excited to share them with you. I obviously went with all things pink and/or beachy but the options are endless for whatever your style is. One thing to applaud is how exact the color looks on the screen compared to the actual sample. Take a peek at the ones I got below!

 

Engagement Announcements:

Pink.Egagement.Party.Invite

I know, I know….isn’t Facebook the official announcement? Nope! Make it even more official with an announcement in the mail. I love the metallics in this card and if I was ordering for production, I would definitely take advantage of their foil option to make it pop even more!

 

Save the Dates:

custom.save.the.dates

FACT: I’ve gotten so many texts recently asking for my address! One feature I love is that Basic Invite offers an address capturing service, which is way more convenient! You can simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc and request addresses for your entire guest list and select it once you send out all the other invitations.

 

Bridal Shower Invitations:

custom.wedding.invitations

custom.bridal.shower.invite

Bridal shower invites tend to be classy, subtle, and pretty but I love the more fun options. And we’re always up for more champagne. 🙂

 

Bachelorette Party Invitations:

custom.bachelorette.invites

Why are these always emails? Change the game with Basic Invite’s Bachelorette Party invitations. I L-O-V-E the ones I picked out. Perfectly pink and nautical!

 

Wedding Invitations:

There were so many elegant invitations to choose from and I honestly couldn’t even pick out a sample because I loved them all. In addition to the invite, they even offer wedding guest book ideas, which would be a perfect gift idea too.

July 4th Travel Must-Haves

july4travel

 

Summer is flying by! If you’ve been wanting to soak up some major sun, now is your chance. School’s out, summer ice cream scoopin’ money is flowing in, and all the red, white, and blue (and pink?!) decorations and party tips are officially taking over our Pinterest boards.

 

Whether you’re packing up the car and cruising down the parkway to your beach town of choice, or printing out a boarding pass to escape to a real tropical getaway with your favorite beach besties, make sure you take a peek at our travel must-haves.

Sturdy Carry-on/Beach Bag

$26 at pinklyperfect.com

PinklyPerfectBeachBrunchBesties

First thing you’ll need is a large carry-on that can hold your essentials for both the trip and the first day or two of vacation if you’re waiting on luggage. We love our Montauk Tote because it can be your carry-on and your beach bag. It’s large enough to fit your laptop, makeup bag, beach towel, book, and an outfit or two.

 

Pink Slip Sleep Mask

$45 at anthropologie.com

pink.sleep.mask

Beat that parkway traffic and head out late Friday night! Trade turns with your besties so each of you can sleep for a bit on the way down and be wide awake to hit the beach first thing in the morning! This sleep mask is perfect to get in the ZZzzone and also look super cute.

 

Stronger Longer Spry Bubble Gum

$27.48 for a 12 pack at xlear.com

pinkly.perfect.spry.gum.mints

After a long flight and hours of off-and-on sleep, make sure you have plenty of gum to freshen up before heading out! We are so obsessed with Spry Dental Defense Gum. It’s made with 100% Xylitol, natural ingredients, and has proven effects to improve oral health when used daily. No toothbrush in your carry-on? No problem! We love the classic bubble gum flavor, but try out their more creative flavors like green tea, fresh fruit, cinnamon, and licorice.

 

Xlear Natural Saline Nasal Spray

$6.99 at xlear.com

xclear.nasal.spray

If you tend to experience sinus pain while traveling, make sure you pack Xlear natural saline nasal spray. This spray offers fast relief to keep you beach bound all vacation long. And if you don’t like it (highly doubtful)? Return for a full refund! Perfect.

Shop Pinkly Perfect for Spring: New Arrivals

pinkly.perfect.sweatshirts.pouches

While so many of you were crossing your fingers for a snow day, I was crossing my fingers, toes, and saying prayers that our Spring 2017 photo shoot would still happen despite the blizzard forecast.

 

Photo shoots are my favorite part of running Pinkly Perfect. It’s the first time I get to see my product on a person (besides me) and I get to be reunited with the team I had from the very beginning (MMA’s Lauren O’Brien, Makeup by Emily Dimant, and ArtChick Photography).

 

Despite some ice covered roads and difficulty parking on tiny Philadelphia snowed in streets, the shoot went off seamlessly and I am SO excited to announce that so many of new favorites are now available for sale at pinklyperfect.com. Check them out!

Avalon Sweatshirt, Teal ($48)

PinklyPerfectTealSweatshirt
Model Lauren in Avalon Sweatshirt in Teal, available at pinklyperfect.com.

Hands down, our favorite Avalon Sweatshirt! The bright teal color and verbiage to describe our ideal summer day (coffee, beach, ice cream, boardwalk, repeat) are completely perfect. Add in that it’s the comfiest sweatshirt ever, and we’re obsessed. Available in S, M, L, and XL here. (Also available at Serendipity Shops of Doylestown in PA!)

 

Avalon Sweatshirt, Indigo Heather ($48)

PinklyPerfectIndigoSweatshirt
Model Lauren in Avalon Sweatshirt, Indigo available at pinklyperfect.com.

Fun fact: I’ve been sitting on these indigo heather sweatshirts for over a year waiting for the right design to come to me. When I started researching patches, I knew it’d be perfect to pair this denim inspired color with pretty pink ice cream cone and flamingo patches. And I am in major L-O-V-E. Pick one up at pinklyperfect.com! (Get a matching Newport Cosmetic Bag and a pink coordinate keychain to make a perfect gift!)

 

Newport Cosmetic Bag, Life Goal: More Beach Days ($20)

PinklyPerfectNewportCosmeticBag
Newport Cosmetic Bag available at pinklyperfect.com.

This Newport Cosmetic Bag really doesn’t need much of an explanation. If you’re a Pinkly Perfect fan then you’re probably just as into summer as I am and have a life goal of getting as many beach days in as possible. Only 74 days until Memorial Day and we’re there! 🙂 Shop the best-selling Newport Cosmetic Bags in all versions here.

 

Noticed any sneak peeks and still waiting for us to add them to our website? In the next two weeks, we’ll be adding SO many more favorites. Stay tuned and follow us on Instagram. Happy spring shopping!
