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!

Soccer Mom Chic

Spring has many truly lovely and wonderful things to appreciate about it.

One thing that is not quite so wonderful is the return of outdoor spring sports — especially during these last cold, wet, muddy and rainy few weeks.

Crisp White Shirt

Anyone else suffering from a weekend hangover?

Not the typical alcohol-induced hangover type (although I won’t judge if you do!), but more the OMG-I-can’t-focus-or-do-anything-productive hangover. Both are equally terrible. A steady diet of buttered bagels, diet orange Sunkist soda and Aleve may fix the former. As for the latter, I’ve got a way better (and less caloric) solution — a crisp white shirt.

Blackout

Why, hello there! Remember me?

It’s been quite a while since we last caught up — 10 days, to be exact — and I’m not gonna lie, the social media blackout was a fantastic change of pace. It was so nice to unplug, unwind and rarely (if at all) check my phone during the day. I got to enjoy a week with my family, read 4 books, soak up some sunshine and recharge. I tried to disconnect from everything work related and give my mind and body a break.

… but now I’m back and best of all, I’m excited to be back.

Heatwave

The instant I saw this top online, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

Originally, I spotted it on Amber of BAREFOOT BLONDE in an INSTAGRAM capture from the beaches of Hawaii. The rich, saturated colors reminded me of a tropical sunset — and who doesn’t like that!? When I discovered that same FREE PEOPLE CANDYLAND SWEATER in my local store, I knew it was meant to be.

The under $60 price tag might have sealed the deal.

Spring Trench Coat

April showers bring May flowers… and trench coats.

For decades, the spring trench coat has been a closet staple for the most stylish women all over the world. However, over time this functional piece has taken on much more stylish persona. In addition to the typical khaki colored trench (you know THE ONE!), women now have a rainbow of colors, cuts and fabrications to pick from.

Wednesday Wish List: Spring Dresses

I realized this past week that I mentally associate each season with a specific type of fashion:

For Winter, I’m all about sweater knits.

Fall calls for all of the cute boots and booties.

Summer is 100% about the swimsuit.

… and Spring goes hand-in-hand with the dress.

Did you ever have a strong opinion and/or dislike for something and then one day, wake up and decide that you were wrong all along!?

A girl can change her mind, you know… AND in case you were wondering, no, I haven’t changed my opinion on THIS.

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.
