Summer 2017 Wishlist

Summer-summa-summer time!

Wednesday is the technically the first official day of summer, even though Indiana has already had many days over 90 degrees already (hello global warming)! I’m ready for porch sitting, pool swimming, sunglasses wearing, watermelon eating, and all of these summer items below.

But specifically that navy eyelet dress…which has been my favorite piece this summer!

Top Twelve Things On My Summer Wishlist for 2017:

  1. New Summer Hat – I’ve had my old standby for years now, and it might be time to replace it with a new model. A classic fedora is always a great option!
  2. White Sleeveless Blouse – I’ve been looking for something just like this to wear under blazers at work and with skirts on the weekend. Simple pieces like this help me beat the summer heat/air-conditioning battle!
  3. Neutral Braided Belt – Light and bright and perfect for cinching in all the summer dresses without weighing you down! And this one is ridiculously affordable!
  4. Eyelet Shirt Dress – This was my birthday dress for 2017. It’s navy (comes in two other colors), has pockets, and is soooooooo pretty. Check, check, and check.
  5. Embroidered Tee –  Print-mixing without even lifting a finger…and can’t beat that color combo.
  6. Tan Espadrille Wedges – I bought these in navy last year, so when I found a pair on Poshmark in my size for under $20, I scooped them up! They’re actually ridiculously comfortable for heels, and I love how they go with everything and anything and look a bit more sophisticated than flip flops (not that there is anything wrong with those!)!
  7. Patterned Shorts – I’m not the biggest shorts fan (strong thighs for days, y’all), but you can’t survive on skirts and dresses all summer long, so I’ve been looking for some new shorts. And these paisley ones are prrrreeeetttty!
  8. Black Sandals – This one is simple enough. I have a favorite pair of cognac brown sandals that are so comfy, and I wear them ALLLL the time. So basically I need a black-colored version to be all those things too. You know, for variety! ;)
  9. White Denim Skirt – This is another one of those pieces that I have in another color (aka regular blue denim) and wear to death, so I know I would get a lot of use of another one in another versatile color. Or you know, just spill a ton of coffee on! ;)
  10. Blush Sunglasses – No I don’t know what is wrong with me either…but I just think these are the prettiest pair of sunglasses ever! And I think they look especially pretty with all these summer pieces!
  11. Straw Purse/Clutch – I have this clutch already from J.Crew and love it, but I’m in search of a circle straw/rattan purse, because I’m loving that summer trend right now (I’ve got my eye on this one)! The ideal way to finish off your summer outfit!
  12. Statement Earrings – Move over, statement necklaces. Statement earrings are making their move for top jewelry trend this season. There are so many good ones out there right now, but these are my favs. I bought the similar pair (here) from the SugarFix line at Target, but these are the original beauties!

Doesn’t everything look so pretty together? Blue, white, and neutrals for life, my friends!

What are you putting on your summer wishlist? Did I miss anything on mine that you have on yours?

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Oh man guys, it has been a WEEK!
  • On Tuesday, I was convinced it was Thursday….that’s how long it felt. We’re short a team member at work this week, and let me just say…I’m happy it is the weekend!
  • This week has also been super weird for me, because I have had no interest in being on the computer after work. Like none. Which is really strange for me…but hey…not gonna fight it. Do you ever have weeks like that? Let me know I’m not alone!
  • So on that note, you get pictures from this weekend. One from Holland, MI, and a glamour shot of my ridiculously cute dog. You’re welcome (said to the tune of the song from Moana)!
  • I bought myself a watercolor set (hello 40% off Hobby Lobby coupons) for my birthday and got really into this week. Like doing it all the time (since I wasn’t on my computer…see above) and watching Youtube videos about it. Hooked, and I’m pretty decent at it too, I think!
  • This weekend is suppose to be rainy and ridiculously hot here, so perfect for staying in, getting some chores done, and listening to Lord Huron and painting with some watercolors. Don’t mind me….I’m just 30 going on 68. ;)

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I’m debating ordering these slide sandals from J.Crew Factory, because they have great reviews, and I’ve seen them all over blogs/Instagrams lately. But the question is…what color should I get?!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Lauren looks KILLER in this black midi dress, and I love that she’s already thought out several other ways to wear it in the future. Gotta love a remixable piece!
  3. A great polka dot tee for my great polka dot loving friends!
  4. I got a free $25 to Madewell through their “Insider program” for my birthday, so I ordered this silk bandana…and paid roughly $2 for it. Score. 
  5. You guysssssss…my eyes are leaking, because of this amazing deaf singer on America’s Got Talent. Her story is amazing, her skill is amazing, and she’s amazing (and reminds me a bit of Ingrid Michaelson). 
  6. Sarah has been doing my job for me…and finding the BEST pieces at Target lately, so naturally when I saw this colorful striped dress on her, I had to order it too!
  7. This police dog lost his job…because he was too dang sociable (awwwww). Don’t worry, he bounced into a new gig pretty quickly.
  8. If you liked this J.Crew polka dot dress (here), but thought it was too pricey, then might I suggest this affordable option from Old Navy (here – I love a good dupe)!
  9. My fellow blogger and friend, Nicole, put out her workbook: Feel Good, Dress Better (here), last week! I downloaded it and read it on the way to Michigan…and it is really helpful, thoughtful, and insightful. Highly recommend it! 
  10. Love this breezy blouse in both red and white prints! Try it over shorts or tucked into a skirt for two easy summer looks!
