I thought it would be fun today to round up some summer style ideas as we head into the first real month of summer. I love clothes and accessories and shoes but I'm not a huge shopper, mainly because I can't afford to be shopping all the time. When I do shop I look for sales, go to thrift shops and consignment shops, focus on what I need for a certain event or on filling holes in my wardrobe, and just generally try to be wise about my purchases. I don't really need any of these cute pieces, and don't really plan on buying any of them (though I can't promise anything) so consider this "virtual window shopping." I love each of these pieces and think they would be just perfect for the summer months ahead.
These minty flats are adorable, right? So subtle and soft and feminine, and I'm imagining them paired with a simple cotton black sundress for an understated, put-together look. I've always loved wearing neutrals and getting my pop of color from my shoes.
I saw this head wrap a few days ago on a blog and I fell in love with it! It's retro and the print is really fun, and it would protect your hair from the harmful rays of the sun when you're out on the beach.
This salmon-y, coral color is one of my favorites, and the lace detail on this pretty top makes it interesting and a tad dressy. Wouldn't it look chic with white skinny jeans and some wedges?
Ok, call me wild, but I love these aztec print pants. I saw a similar pair recently in a blogger's instagram photo and I think they're fabulous. I would pair them with a tank top, with my suit underneath, for a fun and comfortable beach look.
I linked to this bathing suit in a recent post and since then it's gone on sale! It's still very pricey for a bathing suit, but maybe the price will be chopped in half again in another few weeks? We can hope. It's just so pretty.
What summer pieces do you love? Would you go for any of these?
