What I Want: Summer Edition

what I want

Yesterday, I spent a good chunk of time perusing the web trying to find the much-needed inspiration to help me with today’s post.

Hey, a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do.

While a lightning bolt of creative energy didn’t quite happen, I did stumble across a long shopping list of random things that gave me that little “zap” — similar to annoying static electricity, if we’re being honest.

With summer right around the corner, I realized that I was totally unprepared to tackle the season. Or at least that’s what I told myself, as I was jamming my online shopping carts full of clothes and accessories. Naturally, the next step was to put together a collection of “What I Want: Summer Edition” — a mishmash of all of my seasonal favorites. However, I need to warn you to tread lightly, because some of what I want, will become what you want too!

Spring Dresses Under $100

The sun is shining, birds are chirping and it’s finally warm enough to ditch the jackets.

Better yet, it’s time to break out all of those Spring dresses that have been gathering dust in the back of our closet. Even this self-professed NON-girly-girl is excited to trade in my jeans and sweaters for some feminine and flirty frocks.

On My Radar: Everlane

everlane header

These last few weeks I’ve been working with many of my personal styling clients to put together customized Spring/Summer ’17 shopping lists.

(What can I say!? I have a fun job.)

If you’ve ever worked with me, you’ll generally find me recommending a style ratio of: 80% classic staples and 20% seasonal trends. While the trendy, bright spring summer pieces are super fun and can be relatively inexpensive, they’re fleeting and will be in a donation or consignment bag in a season or two. It’s those classic staples that stick around for the long haul.

The ONE Critical Shopping Mistake to Avoid

Let me set a scene for you:

A friend calls (who am I kidding — no one calls anyone anymore!) texts you on Thursday morning asking if you want to meet up with the girls for Friday night dinner and drinks. You happily oblige. It’s been ages since you’ve had a girls night out!

Then you panic.

Sh*t! What do I wear?! I Have NOTHING in my closet. I hate my clothes!

Then you proceed directly to the nearest clothing store as soon as you can and begin the mad hunt for the “perfect” going out shirt.

Can you tell where this story is going?

The 4 Looks Every Woman Needs In Her Closet

4 looks every woman needs header

Since founding The Heart’s Delight almost 4 years ago, I’ve been around the closet block.

I’ve seen closets and wardrobes of every size, shape and iteration. I’ve spent hours purging and sorting and styling and shopping. All of this time and effort was not for naught — I’d like to think that my clients have been left with functional, stylish wardrobes they love.

More importantly, all this time in the closet has helped me to figure out a crucial fashion hack to ensure you have a well-rounded wardrobe of essential pieces that can pretty much get you through life — however crazy it may be.

It all comes down to this: 4 looks every woman needs in her closet.

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.81

Friday Link LoveAnd just like that, we’ve made it to the end of the week!

While yesterday, I woke up to a brisk 19º F, today it’s supposed to hit 70° F. Nothing like Spring in Cleveland! I say that with sarcasm and an eye roll. Speaking of eye rolls — that pretty much the only part of my upper body I can move without pain this morning. I woke up to a muscle strain/spasm in my upper back/right shoulder and I literally can’t move. Getting dressed and trying to tame my hair was an epic fail. I’ve already popped some Aleve and I’m hoping the muscles relax enough for me to get through my day, crazy hair and all.

Getting old stinks.

To take my mind off the searing pain and discomfort, I’ve put together a great roundup of internet reads to share with you. So let’s get to it! This week’s edition of Friday Link Love is right this way…

One Look, Three Budgets

Money… money changes everything.

(Thank you, Cyndi Lauper & Sirius/XM 80’s Channel for getting that song stuck in my head.)

When we see celebrities, fashion editors and street style fashionistas, we’re often tempted to say that they can look as good as they do because of their unlimited funds. “Real” people could never pull that style off without taking a second mortgage on their home, or going without food for a few weeks.

You know what? That’s only partially true.

Under The Radar: Need Supply Co.

I love when I find something kind of under-the-randar and new to so many people (myself included). Unfortunately, the under-the-radar status doesn’t last very long with me. If it’s something good, I just have to share.

I can’t help it.

My LEAST Favorite Trend Of The Season

cold-shoulder-cut-outs-trend

No matter how classic or timeless we want our wardrobes to be, so much of what we wear everyday is trend driven. It’s the trends that make our closet staples feel contemporary and fresh, even if they’ve been in our style rotation for a long time.

Unfortunately, while some trends are home run hits — boyfriend jeans, anyone!? — others are, well… questionable. I could wax poetic about the BEST trends you just have to try, but I thought it might be easier to voice my opinion about a trend that I’m advising you to take a pass on.

Are you ready for it!?
