Madewell Scribble Dot SkirtEasy, cute and versatile, this fun polka-dotted skirt promises to be a wardrobe wonder all season long.

Bamboo Floral Low-Wedge SandalsNeed a little pick me up of the footwear variety? Then think flowers, which never fail to lift spirits and also make the perfect summer accent. These garden-variety sandals feature low-profile heels, which means they're perfect for those of you who don't love ultra-ultra-flat soles, yet don't want to teeter around all day, either. And who can resist these vibrant prints? In your choice of ballet pink or fuchsia on black, they're bright, cheerful and ideal to pair with just about every summer ensemble imaginable.

MINKPINK Frida Embroidered DressSummer without a white dress is like PB without the J - still good, but made a bit better with that little addition. Thank Aussie label Minkpink for Frida, a glorious little wear-and-go white dress accented by a band of colorful embroidery at its high waist. A flirty little ruffled hem adds a dose of sweet charm, but it's not so saccharine that you'll feel like a child. Slip into pretty metallic flats or a pair of wedges and you'll look and feel cool no matter how steamy it gets out there.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Media for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer has officially started this week, and along with it comes shorts, swimsuits, and sleeveless dresses. Somehow the season always seems to sneak up on me, and despite promises to myself to work out daily and eat fewer carbs, I'm often too busy to squeeze in an hour at the gym or plan a day's worth of healthy meals and snacks. The result? I'm feeling a little less than swimsuit-ready.

Thankfully, I've discovered the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan. It's clinically proven and incredibly easy to fit into my busy day. The plan is to pick 3 nourishing snacks a day (a Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bar, nuts, fruits, or veggies), 2 Slim-Fast shakes, and 1 500-calorie balanced meal.

Replacing my usual breakfast and lunch with a ready-made Slim-Fast shake is beyond easy. And with seriously delicious flavors like Milk Chocolate and Cappuccino Delight, I actually look forward to drinking my shakes. With the 3 snacks, I still get to indulge in my favorite fruit and the occasional frozen yogurt, and the 500-calorie dinner gives me the flexibility to eat with my family or go out for dinner, so I never feel deprived.

Who knew it would be this easy to be swimsuit-ready in no time?

DV by Dolce Vita Ash SandalsBoosted by a pop of color, these fun flat sandals are a great way to step out in comfort and show your stripes while you're at it. The bold beading along the T-strap makes it a statement shoe, but one that's not too fussy or complicated. It looks great with anything, whether you're going for ultra summer-chic in a pair of denim shorts or taking a flirty approach in a printed sundress. Also in black and blue.

River Island Agate RingAs cool and serene as that beach getaway you keep fantasizing about, this striking ring is positively dreamy. It's hard to determine what's most alluring - the statement-making size or the appearance of incredibly bold turquoise agate. It's so vibrant that it would be impossible to miss, and the ring itself is a great complement to looks both dressy and understated. At this price, it's a summer essential!
