I've got my eye on a few key pieces of clothing for the upcoming warmer months. It's definitely hot today in L.A. and it's got me thinking of summertime...
1. Abercrombie Greta Shorts, $60
I like that they're not the typical butthangingoutoftheshorts length, yet they're still young and fun. I may be a bit old for Abercrombie. Then again, maybe not!
2. Michael Kors Trellis Cork Wedge Sandal, $425
I'm loving their height and the fact that the wedge doesn't fully connect- makes them a bit different. Yet Beckham says you should never have a strap around the ankle, it breaks up the leg and makes it fat. And $425 clams is steep for MK. I'd hold out on these. But this is what I'm looking for - a nude-tanish sandal.
3. True Religion Bobby Jeans, $240
I love me a pair of True Religions, ever since my first pair 4+ years ago. I saw these on sale around X-mas time and didn't snap them up, and now, regretfully they're full price. I'm holding off...
4. Metallic Havaianas, $30
Duh, flip flops are a summer staple. Havaianas are the comfiest. And these are a little spruced up.
5. Angels by VS Supersoft Hiphuggers and Thongs, 3 for $30
These are the softest, stretchiest, most comfy undies this tush has ever felt. Adore. I can't help but always buy new underwear. And ladies (and gentlemen I guess), always google Victoria's Secret Coupon Codes before buying. You will save much moola.
6. Assorted Headbands from Anthropologie, $24-$38
Since it seems I'll be rockin the short hair for a bit longer, I think some headbands are in order. Anthropologie carries some of the cutest ones I've seen. The pricing seems a bit silly, and methinks I can start making them myself (do I sense a business opportunity?).
7. Profiterole Blouse by Anthropologie, $128
This top just looks like a good time to me. And I think it's a little fair to the midsection, which is perfect for that mid-summer snacking one tends to do. Again, not likely to be paying full price on this one.
8. Free People Galinas Jersey Tank, $98
I lurve the bright poppy prints Free People uses. I think I'm 1/4 hippie.
9. Guess Nyla Dress, $98
I live in dresses during the summer. This cotton maxi dress can be so versatile- it can go from a day at the beach to a nice dinner out.
10. C&C California Tanks, $42
The best. I am a layering whore. But again, a cheap one, as I wait to buy these when they are on sale.
I will surely keep you updated with more items that I covet, but at the moment, my 10 summer staples will have to suffice. It is notable that I have not included swimwear. I'm just not *in that place* yet.
