hi dudes!! katie asked me to make a lil sumpin in honor of summer- that horrid creature looming around the bend of every road i am ever on. SRY but i don’t like summer that much!!! mostly just because i am ALWAYS subjected to texas summer. which is not actually summer; it is the wrath of something very evil. but here are some things that help me power through months 4 to 9.
+ POLKA DOT & MINI SKIRTS!
this one is from asos and it is completely dreamy.
+ POPS OF COLOR & PATTERN!
i am not a huge accessory person, so belts are where it is at for me. the thinner & brighter, the better! for the bold-hearted, target has started putting out some poppin scarves.. & jewels deserve a lil spotlight every now and then, too!
+ COLORED DENIM!
these are rag & bone, but target also has some pretty tasty ones! They run about two sizes small…. dunno what thats all about. check gap, too!
+ PRINTED & OVERSIZED TANKS!
i don’t know about you- but as soon as summer hits, i do not want ANYTHING touching my body. like. nothing. but i guess it’s, like, not cool to walk around naked? whatever!! oversized tanks are the next best thing. forever 21 never lets me down. and yeah- during the winter i am size xs.. but summertime is all about the xxl. you got a problem??
+ NUDE LIPS!
gloss/gloss/gloss/ it girl! make up + sweat just doesn’t really work out. i’m into NARS‘s glosses (nonglitter please)- but for the balmers, check out KORRES. sure, it’s pricey.. but your lips will never be softer, promise!
+ TSHIRT DRESSES & ALL THAT IS HORIZONTAL STRIPE!
stripes & summer belong together- it is just how things need to be! this little number from ellamoss is pretty divine. I would also count on jcrew & madewell to produce some stellar stripes this summer. a girl can hope, at least.
a must for this girl. secrets- i have worn mine through the winter with leggings underneath! They are just so versatile! and obv it feels awesome to recycle your old beloved jeans that have seen better days. for some reason, i think they look best in black? weird.
+ FLASHY FLATS!
i hope you aren’t over animal print yet!!! because i am dying for these sandals! a pop of print with these toms would also suffice.
+ LONG & FLOWY MAXI’S!
again, i am interested in the whole nothing-touches-my-body thing. target is selling. and i am buying!
+ BEACHY TOTES
ditch the EW and grab the NS totes, dudes! make sure at least two bottles of wine and a few magazines will fit! and maybe a change of clothes? who knows! dying for this nanamica & this kate spade.
+ CAREFREE TEE’S
just give it all up already! be one with the loose-fit. you & your deodorant will thank me. yeah. went there. live & die in this. for real.
