It’s a late friday night/saturday morning, I’m lounging on the couch with my kitten while thinking about important things like my favorite trends for summer and whether I should save for an iPad or buy a new wardrobe. I decided since Clementine hasn’t been giving me much feedback, I would share my thoughts on the things with you:
FABULOUS SUMMER 2013 TRENDS VS. The iPad:
Cat Eye Style Sunglasses: Kate Spade “Della” Sunglasses
There is something so whimsical about a cat eye. Combined with a floral print, how can you possibly be having a bad day? Also, assuming you are wearing the sunglasses for practical purposes, it is probably nice out too. TOTAL WIN!
Bright Colored School Supplies: Lilly Pulitzer 2014 Agendas
Yes, I know it’s summer… but Lilly Pulitzer Agendas are going on Pre-Sale right now. You will be kicking yourself if you don’t snag one of these vibrant organizers for school come fall. They might be that one thing that makes you smile as you’re jotting down Calculus homework. Isn’t that worth it?
A Wanna-be Retro Look: Polka Dot Picnic Romper
The closest I will get to leaving my house in pajamas is wearing a romper. The 2 I have that I previously blogged about were so comfortable, I’m dying over a new one. This one just happens to be vintage (inspired), my all time favorite style after preppy.
Wedges.. and mint anything: Make Me Chic Wedge Booties
I don’t always condone boots in the summer, because it’s the one time that my feet can breath.. but for shoes this cute I would make an exception. Buying them in a neutral gives you the flexibility of “year round almost any outfit” potential, but that mint is just delicious. So obviously that means you buy both.
Patterned Pants: Chevron Wide Leg Pant
In case all of my other choices appeared subtle these pants should obviously clarify (HA). I love the idea of such a loud pattern with a white polo or cardigan. It takes classic and cranks it up a notch.. or 5.
An Awesome Literary Reference: Asos ‘It was the best of times’ T-shirt
I’ve wanted the Kate Spade Great Gatsby clutch since it came out a few years ago.. I get such joy out of nerdy fashion collaborations It was only natural I would drool over this Tale of Two Cities top. You can even wear it inside out because it will say “It was the worst of times” Pair this mens style top with a skirt and cardigan, I dare you.
Some of these items were more cost effective that others, but the question remains:
Should iBeTrendy or get an iPad?
I’m an apple fanatic.. my iPhone and MacBook Pro rarely leave my side: do I make a nerdy techy decision over the well being of my summer wardrobe?
Oh, I could save money for NYC. There’s that too -LOL.
