As temperatures reach into the 90’s this week, I’ve been starting to compile my seasonal list of “what to buy”. Here are the top items on my summer purchase list – I’d love to hear yours!
1. Dressy sandals. I love a great pair of sandals in the summer, and have been hankering after a dressier pair that I could wear to work, and at nicer occasions. I love these nude sandals from Prada – the block heel adds a modern touch, and plus makes them more comfortable!
2. Fun shorts. I wear shorts almost exclusively on the weekends in the summer – they’re so easy to throw on and in my opinion infinitely more comfortable than pants. Plus they aren’t susceptible to strong gusts of wind like skirts are! I always buy a pair in a fun print for summer and these J.Crew jacquard versions are my current favorite.
3. A white dress. I love white dresses! I think I buy one almost every year, and it ends up working out because sometimes a dress years old will end up looking a bit dingy and then I’ll throw it out. So there’s always room for another white dress in my closet.
My current pick is this great white dobby cotton dress by Kate Moss for Topshop. Doesn’t it look divine modeled on Ms. Moss herself? To me it looks like a pretty Anthropologie style dress, but with an edge.
4. Leopard flats. I actually ordered these great Steven leopard espadrilles a few months ago, only to open the box and find these leopard slip ons, instead. Quite cute too, but no cigar! I’m back to looking for leopard espadrille and have it narrowed down to the Steve Maddens above, and these “jaguar” print versions from Schultz.
Those are some of the items on my summer list! What’s on yours?
