Summer is in full swing here in the midwest (it's supposed to be 96 degrees for my brother-in-law's afternoon outdoor wedding this weekend. holy s***!) so I've been looking for all kinds of fun clothing and accessories that are well-suited for the heat and humidity! I love not only creating these wish lists each month, but also seeing what color palettes I'm drawn to at the moment. Right now I'm especially inspired by red and deep orange prints, cognac, black (literally always), and shades of mauve and rose pink. A few notables...
-If you've ever experienced midwest or southern humidity, you know that it is absolutely inevitable to sweat like a dude unless you're some magical goddess (in which case, I envy you). Breezy tanks are an absolute must. I'm obsessed with all of the prints this tank comes in (I ordered the orange print), this lace-up tank is a steal (I ordered black but plan to get the white too), and this is a pretty little tank on sale for $16!
-The "it" wedges of the summer have been restocked and I want them so incredibly badly. Currently utilizing every ounce of self control to not drop most of my shopping budget on them...ugh.
-Because I wear my staple denim shorts (these are my absolute favorite) on heavy rotation all summer, I like to mix in a couple of unique pairs to keep things fresh. I'm legitimately counting down the days until I get these embroidered beauties in the mail (hope they fit!), and want to get these as well.
-Because summer outfits are simpler by nature, I rely on accessories to keep things interesting. Chokers are one of my biggest obsessions right now, and I have also totally bought into the bandana-scarf-kneck-tie trend (a year late, but better late than never, right?). Both add that extra punch to an outfit, even if it's a simple tank top + shorts. Also, this bag is the Gucci look on a Zara budget! It's real suede for $50, but do pay attention to the dimensions as it's a fairly small bag.
What trends are you all about this summer?? Rompers, off-the-shoulder stuff, and funky sunglasses are still going strong this year and I love those trends as well! I linked tons and tons of cute summer finds below, and there are even more on my 'shop' page!
