Summer Fashion WishlistTuesday, May 31, 2016
As much as I love all the layering pieces and boots that a fall outfit contains, I absolutely love summer clothes. They're filled with bright colors, fun prints, and are simply effortless! After work, I've been spending my free time just browsing online clothing shops. I've come to realize, I've been accumulating quite a large shopping wishlist....which can be quite dangerous.
So I thought I would share with you some of things I'm considering purchasing (probably not all of them). I've also linked the items, in case you're interested in purchasing them for yourself.
1. Xenia Blessed Angel Dress Mint Green $58.00
This dress just screams summer! I absolutely love the bow and the color of this dress. This has been on my wishlist for three years now. The only thing that is holding me back besides the price, is the fact that the smallest size is a size 2. I'm pretty petite, especially on top, so I'm concerned that it won't fit properly. I guess though, I could always have it altered.
I have a wedding to attend in August and I orginally planned on a wearing a dress that I already owned. However, when I saw this dress, I fell in love. The watercolor print is perfect for the summer. And I can already envision the pictures being taken in this dress. It's going to go perfect with my boyfriend's light blue dress shirt and us posing by the lake! This is going to be a definite must buy for me!
3. Windsor Naturally Strappy Heels $26.90
Believe it or not, I do not own a pair of nude colored heels. 90% of my heels are black. So I thought these would be the perfect addition to my collection. Not only will they go with the dress above, but they'll go practically with all of my summer dresses. Hopefully they'll fit well and be comfortable.... ordering shoes online can be risky
4. AEO Hi-Neck Tulip Back Tank $18.71
I've been really into the whole high neckline trend. I think it's really flattering and sexy for my petite body shape. Plus I'm a huge fan of navy, so the print is perfect!
5. AEO First Essentials Crop Top $14.96
Again, another high neckline! Everyone needs a white top for summer; it's an essential! I absolutely adore the scalloped hem; it almost reminds me of a wedding dress.
6. AEO Crotchet Trim Romper: $37.46
Whenever I see people wearing rompers, I think it's the cutest thing! It's like wearing a dress, but you don't have to worry about flashing anyone. I love the crochet detailing on this one, and of course it has the high neckline! Plus, how cute would this be with white converse for the 4th of July!?
7. AEO Soft and Sexy Swing Tshirt $26.21
Another trend, I've been loving is the lace up shirts. I think it adds such a sexy element to just a plain shirt. I love that you can dress it up with a pair of jeans and heels for a night out. Or, if you're going to a baseball game, throw on some shorts, converse, and a baseball hat, and you're ready to go! I really love how these strings are on the thinner side and aren't overwhelming.
8.HCO Must Have Slim Cropped Cami $9.95
Going along with the whole lace up trend, I think this top is adorable with the crisscross detailing. It would look super cute with a cardigan paired over top. It could also be styled by pairing a lowercut shirt over top. Plus the price is totally affordable, and it comes in other colors, such as white.
9. HCO Cold Shoulder Lace Top $22.47
Right now, I'm really into the whole bohemian, effortless style. This shirt is nothing like I own. It's in one of my favorite colors, and I love the cold shoulder detailing. And of course, it has a high neckline!
10. HCO Low Rise Denim Short Shorts $19.97
Festival shorts look so cute on people, but I'm just not that comfortable with my butt hanging out. So I prefer a nice classic, cuffed pair. I own 2 pairs of dark washed denim, but not a medium wash. These will go with practically anything!
11. HCO Low Rise- Twill Short Shorts $17.47
I don't know why, but whenever I see white shorts, I think of picnics. Maybe because I associate them with the 4th of July!? White shorts are also a staple. I love pairing them with navy tops, gingham, and shirts that tie in the front. I own a pair of them, but they don't fit right in the waist. I would also like to find a pair that have the sailor double breasted looking buttons.....I love anything nautical!
12. HCO Super Skinny Jeans $29.97
Just like the shorts, these are a necessity. These are nice when you want to wear wedges or when it's a cooler day. The one's I own are a bit frumpy, so I want to replace them with a pair of tight skinny ones. I'm pretty petite, so I find that Hollister's fit me the best.
And finally, some other misc........
-Black Converse: mine are looking pretty gross and worn
-A Nude Bra: The wire has worn out and is poking through
-A Neutral lace halter bralette; I own two bright colored ones that I love to pair with low back shirts, but now I want to invest in a neutral one that I can wear with practically anything
-Basic Sandals: The majority of mine are wearing out, so I need some everyday sandals
What is on your summer wishlist?
