The Five S’s of Summer

Hey dolls ! I am here with the top 5 things a fashionista just can’t do without for the summer. Let’s get right to it !

The Sunnies

Sunnies are the ultimate summer accessory! They shield your eyes from the blinding rays while making you look glam. Pick up a pair in a bright, fun color, cool shape or funky print, or go for the classic-style shade. Whatever suits your style!

The Summer Dress

Dresses are ideal for summer time, especially the one with a flirty cut and tropical-esque floral print like the one above. Whether mini, midi, or maxi, when selecting a summer dress, make sure it is flattering to your figure and has breathable material and cut for the warm weather. The floral print blouson dress above is from Forever 21 and costs $24.80.

The Swim Wear

C’mon, its summer! You gotta have a little fun in the sun, and that usually involves getting wet. Whether for a trip to the beach, or the neighborhood pool, you gotta be ready to pull out your swimsuit at a moments notice. There is a vast variety of cute popular swimsuit cuts for Summer 2012. From the retro cut to the one shoulder, be sure to pick the swimsuit that will be most flattering to your body type. It’s the best way to ensure you will be confident and avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.

The Shorts

Who wears short shorts? We wear shorts! Its summer, its hot, and you can’t wear pants all the time. Embrace the heat with shorts. You can wear basic denim cut-offs or switch it up some shorts with a quirky print. The ones above are shorts by The Pretty Junk from Asos Marketplace & cost $83.60.

The Sandals

Sandals are a definite summer staple. Feel free to show off that fresh pedi in some strappy open-toed kicks! My advice is to stock up on as many pairs as you can because they are the one thing you will probably wear everyday of the summer, or close to.  This pair is from Forever 21 and is only $12.80!

Until Next Time!

June Wishlist !

Hi guys, I wanna share with you all some things I’m really wishing I had my paws on this month:

Image

Jeffery Campbell Night Walk Pumps

I adore these ! Especially in this mint color that is oh-so hot for the season right now. I could just see myself wearing these with an LBD out on the town one party-ful night. *sigh* dare to dream. They can be found on Solestruck.com for $169.95 and they are to die for in pink, also. One of these days…

Image

 Sparkle Polish

I am SUCH a fan of the glittery sparkle nail right now! The last time I did my nails I did them in pink sparkles and I love, love, loved the outcome. I think the next I wanna try is all silver sparkle…we shall see.

Image

Maxi Dresses

Ahhh maxi dresses, ill take one in every color (and pattern) please ! You can never have enough of ’em, especially the racerback style…so relaxed and cute at the same time. LOVE!

Image

Ombre’ Hair

Its still something I have been dying to try! Its sadly not in the budget right now though, which leads me to my next wish…

Image

Money, money, money !

Infinite amounts of cash would be ever so clutch right now! Especially because lately I have had the incessant yearning to shop till I drop, a yearning I have had to reluctantly deny as a woman on a strict budget. Oh how I wish I could spend spend spend with no regard to the responsibilites of life. But sadly this is not so, especially this month. One day my bags of money will come…one day. Maybe i’ll marry rich *shrugs*.

Lastly but not least I am wishing for…

DEATH TO ALL CRICKETS!!!!

Okay before you think, she has gone off the deep end and this has nothing to do with fashion at all, I’m gonna just tell you…you’re right. But I just HAVE to share this story with you guys.*WARNING: A RANT WILL ENSUE* Okay, so I wake up yesterday morning a bit earlier than normal because I planned to shower and get ready then do a little reading before work and class. So its 7 in the morning and I’m just showering it up and what do I see when I look over at the sponge on the corner of my tub, but a ugly little cricket! Ewwwwwww!!!! I froze at first sight but then cut off the water and got out as I thought of a plan. Let me just let yall know that I HATE bugs. &one that hops AND flies???? A definite recipe for disaster, so my plan was to take two large cups and douse it so I could ring it down my tub. I do this and just as the cricket is about to go down the hole and away from me forever my stopper closes right in the way. AMAZING. Just my luck. So after freaking out some more I regroup and try to drown it with hot water. THAT didnt even work, because amazingly the stopper closed just enough to not let the cricket go down, but to let the water drain out. Ultimately I had to end up calling a friend of mine to kill it, with only minutes to spare before work. And to make matters worse I kept seeing crickets, dead and alive, all day. They were following me!!!! Yuck. I just want them all to die, even down to Jiminy. Yup, thats right I said it.

Okay….Rant. Over.

Well these are the things I deeply desire this month, what’s some things on you guys wishlist??? Let me know!

Until Next Time!!

Trendspotting : Neon

Color will always be a big trend for the Spring and Summer months. Its only right, as the weather brightens up, so does our wardrobe ! As we segue from Spring to Summer one big color trend that’s emerging is Neon. Whether its on a bag or boldly slathered on our nails, Neon is a must-have in our fashion arsenal. Here are a few items on my neon-wishlist for the season :

Image

These bold pink “South of 5th” sunnies from Urban Outfitters are perfect for the season! Wear them with any outfit for a bit of neon flare. They run about $16 and they are cat-eye glasses, a trend bonus!

Image

Taking summer school maybe? I am, and Lord knows I will need a way to carry around my books. I could just use one of the handy shoulder bags I already own (that’s probably what i’ll actually do), but in my fashion fantasy land I’m walking around the campus with this baby on my back. I’m not too often a fan of backpacks, but this one screams chic.On sale for $29.99, this Baggu Neon Backpack can be purchased on fredflare.com. Lastly this bag was made from 100% recycled cotton canvas, an environmental plus!

Image

With its sassy cut and neon accents, this dress has just the right amount of spice. Perfect for a night out, it’s $29.90 and can be found on windsorstore.com

Image

Neon polish, oh yeahh! Probably the cheapest way to sport the neon trend, this nail polish and others like it only run about $4 and can be found in drugstores and your local Walmarts’ and Targets. I will definitely be getting some and putting it into effect ASAP!

Have a little fun with neon yourselves!
