When it comes to seasons, we don’t play favorites. Well, okay – maybe we do (cough cough, summer). Nothing beats slipping into a bright suit, packing up a tote, and heading to the beach.

These bloggers show us just how a day in the sun is done.

1. Camille Styles
These totes fit every beach personality. Think nautical stripes and canvas prints.

2. The Effortless Chic
How to pull off wavy beach hair – without actually having to go in the water.

3. Effortless Style
Here’s Camila’s pick for a quick beach read. (Did we mention it’s about a home design blogger like herself?)

4. Sugar and Cloth
As for everything else? Ashley names every last sun and swim essential. Get packing.

Our top 4 picks of the week

Bloggers

We hold these truths to be self-evident: Four score and seven years ago, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria sailed the ocean blue in order to form a more perfect union.

Oh wait. That’s wrong. Get your facts straight on the most patriotic day of the year with help from this slew of blogs, all packed to the brim with (accurate) American history.

1. Boston 1775
Did you know Ben Franklin had his own phonetic alphabet? He found c, j, q, w, x, and y to be “confusing.” (Ben, there is nothing confusing about the word clothing.)

2. UNHISTORICAL
Disregard the name. It is historical. Read up and regurgitate during, uh, dinner dates.

3. Threaded
Fast fact: Mrs. Lincoln’s much-coveted White House dressmaker was a former slave. Read more on this Smithsonian blog.

4. I’m Remembering!
Utterly nostalgic things from the 80s and 90s (like OshKosh B’gosh) count as American “history”… right?

The Fourth of July just might be the best holiday. (We have a penchant for sparklers.) And these bloggers channel all that glorious red, white, and blue like pros.

1. Say Yes to Hoboken
Actually, forget Hoboken. Say yes to these just-patriotic-enough yogurt-dipped strawberries and blueberries.

2. Mrs. Lilien
Sure, it’s gone hipster. But think about how pretty a slew of PBRs will look when set against this tablescape…

3. Atlantic-Pacific
Fact: Simply no one does red, white, and blue quite like our old standby, Blair.

4. Little Green Notebook
Go on, paint stars on your ceiling like Jenny did. (Bonus points if you paint exactly 50.)

Don’t get us wrong – we love a good LBD. But when the temps start sizzling and the beach (or, say, mimosa-sipping-on-the-patio) invites start rolling in? Color us happy.

These style bloggers show us how hues are done.

1. Delightfully Tacky
The only thing better than summer stripes? Said stripes in a rainbow of hues.

2. the fabulous life of a natural disaster
Don jeans and a white tee. Pair with an electric shock of neon. Go. (Abby is proof it works.)

3. blonde bedhead
Soft pastels + bold reds. Like the ocean, but set on fire. We know, we know… just try to picture it.

4. Style Cusp
White is to summer what black is to winter – a blank canvas for pops of anything bright. Here’s Marissa’s take.

Heidi’s super healthful meals – made from natural, whole foods and ingredients – look almost too pretty to eat. Almost. Replicate with abandon.

2. Creature Comforts
Daily color inspiration boards, for when you’re just so sick of being called out for wearing black on black daily.

3. Lobster and Swan
If this doesn’t inspire you to snag wildflowers on your way home, we don’t know what will. (Permission to steal some from the neighbors? Granted…)

4. Grey Likes Weddings
The big day deserves heaps of inspiro. Find it all here – from stunning engagement photos to artfully designed menu cards.

Sun-drenched days. Light-sweater nights. They’re here – and these bloggers are taking the season’s endless inspiration and running with it, DIY-style.

1. A Beautiful Mess
The next best thing to owning a beach house? Anchors. All over your walls. Here’s how to bring summer home.

2. oh joy!
Fact: summer demands ice cubes. Addendum: not just any ice cubes will do.  Enter: striped ice cubes. (Please make and invite us over, thanks.)

3. Design for Mankind
Chevron + coral screams summer – so take the quintessential pairing straight to your most mundane items. Folding chair, it’s on.

4. Sprinkles in Spring
Take shark teeth. Add earring posts. Gild in gold. These beauts are your middle school summer-camp craft gone luxe.

Guy style – a whole summer’s worth. Take laptop to patio. Crack beer. All set? Read on.

1. Style Girlfriend
A girlfriend’s perspective on a guy’s getup. Perk: she’ll never borrow your sweaters and dub them her own style statement.

2. The Dandy Project
Okay. So organza doesn’t exactly reek of masculinity. But Izzy makes it work. Writing + photography = irresistibly superb.

3. Unabashedly Prep
There’s nothing like hovering on the cusp of Memorial Day weekend to get us in the mood for prep.  So go ahead: pop your collar. Eat a lobster roll.

4. Kempt
UrbanDaddy’s style blog. Enough said. You’re welcome.

Now, break.

1. She Lets Her Hair Down
Rubi’s latest hair secret: coconut oil works wonders on frizz. Who knew?

The key to perfecting summer’s loose curl?  Mary’s easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions.

1. j’adore couture
We’ll be taking our early-morning (and late-morning, and early-afternoon…) coffee with a hefty dose of pretty stacked rings now, thankyouverymuch.

2. Fashion Chalet
When a girl can pull off riding pants, neon, and a sequinny clutch – while walking around in the woods – we like her. Instantly.

3. allie wears
Reason to add more stripes and caged sandals to our arsenal immediately. (As if we needed one.)

4. seersucker + saddles
Summer preppy. Slightly glam. If drinking lemonade on the front porch of a Nantucket beach house were a blog, this would be it.

1. Girls Off Fifth
NYC-steeped style, with a side of gold-dipped bull skulls. Don’t ask, just go.

What Katie ate, in all its gorgeously photographed glory. Seriously too pretty to eat.

3. OnTheRacks
A master at layering the unexpected, this San Fran transplant has us taking a bold new look at our closets.

4. Carrots ‘N’ Cake
Adore Tina’s food and fitness inspiration – and the simple fact that she calls Boston home. (Marylou’s Coffee abounds.)
