Summer Fun with Pineapples

With summer slowly approaching, the beach vibes just keep getting stronger! One of my favorite parts of summer is the different vacations that we go on. Sometimes we travel south to Florida and stay on the beach and other times we just spend a weekend at our favorite lake, either way it’s relaxing and always a good time!

My favorite part about going on vacation is buying new clothes to take with me. I have recently gained quite the collection for pineapple clothing and accessories! I guess you could say I’m obsessed but I cannot wait to pack up all my favorite pineapple items for vacation!

My top 5 favorite pineapple items:

  1. Pineapple Dad Hat
  2. Sunnylife Pineapple Float
  3. Pineapple Koozie
  4. Southern Shirt Co Pineapple Shirt
  5. Jadelynn Brooke Pineapple Fanny Pack

You don’t have to live in the South to enjoy the Southern preppy style! Southern preppy brands have migrated into the Midwest and since have exploded in popularity. Full of humor, personality, and class, the preppy clothing brands have collectively created styles that appeal to everyone. Once popular with only college students here in the Midwest, Southern clothing brands have branched out to encompass a much larger demographic.
