5 outfits for summer

Friday, June 6, 2014

I'm not sure about where you are, but here in Columbia, SC, the summer heat is full-on. No stopping summer now - nope, she's here and she's hot.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I did some shopping to update my summer apparel, but there are still a few pieces that I'd like to add. Last summer, I didn't buy hardly any summer pieces since we were moving. I was more in a "If I don't love it, get rid of it" mode. So maybe that's why I'm craving some new additions to ye olde summer wardrobe this year.

Here's what I'm lusting after (if only that dang A/C unit hadn't busted - I'd have a lot more money in my clothing fund right now!)

One. I am obsessed with these Lilly Pulitzer beach pants! They look so comfy and anything Lilly is up my alley. I just need to figure out which print I want...which is, of course, the hard part.

Two. I need some neon! Neon takes me back to first-ish grade (circa 1991), so for the nostalgia alone, I dig it.

Three. I want a new maxi, and this one is gorgeous. It's classy and fun and summery and nautical all rolled into one (so, basically perfect).

Four. What summer wardrobe is complete without a bathing suit? I haven't bought a new suit in nearly 3 years (since buying for my Honeymoon!), so it's time to refresh the swimsuit drawer.

Five. I love tunics - I can't get enough. They're flattering, comfortable, and easy to wear to work, to dinner, to the beach, to Target, etc. What's not to love?

And there you have it: the missing pieces to my perfect summer closet! 

Have one wonderful weekend!
