It's about this time of the year that I start to panic that summer is right around the corner! The girls are winding down at school; only a few weeks left, but of course lots of end of the year projects, field trips and parties are going on. It's always a bit frantic in May! Kara also turns 7 this month, what?! I was already blogging for about a year when I had her, so I've been around a crazy long time in the blog world. Just call me ol' Grandma blogger.
Late spring is the time when I start to look ahead to summer as far as purchases and what I am looking to add to my closet. Lots of tanks, shorts and dresses. Little fuss and little muss. Pretty jewels to amp up basic outfits. (Not THAT kind of basic, the good old fashioned basic). I'm loving the color palette here of black, heather gray, a peachy nude and different greens. All of course are under $50!
Shift Dress in Abstract Print • Asos • $45 - This is such a great pattern! It reminds me of tropical fronds, which is great for being on-trend without taking it over the top.
Fringe Faux Leather Tote • Lulu • $48 - Fringe is also big this season, and again this has just the right amount without going overboard.
Fringe Ethnic Clutch • MANGO • $49.99 - This looks a bit like those awesome wall weavings (which I want btw, and have been stalking etsy for the perfect one), and I happen to love it. Great texture to go with a simple black dress.
Faux Leather Espadrille Sandals • Forever 21 • $19.90 - These are simple and lovely, and come in brown and white as well. For $20 you can buy all the colors.
Linear Crystal Statement Earrings • Sole Society • $34.95 - These are actually really big, you can view them being worn if you click through to the site. What I like about these is the interesting, modern color combo.
Zodiac Constellation Pendant • BaubleBar • $38 - I've always been enamored with the Zodiac and astrology, so I keep my eye on anything related. This is a nice big pendant, which I think would go great with summer tees. #Virgo
Lace appliqué tank top • J.Crew • $49.99 - Comes in several different colors, including a tone on tone navy, cream and lilac. I like the contrast of this heather gray and peach combo.
1969 Paperbag-Waist Denim Shorts • Gap • $34.99 - I'm a bit on the fence about these shorts, I think they would either look really great or rather unflattering depending on your shape. What I do like is the length, the ease of the cut and the tie is a cute detail. They are on sale, so it wouldn't hurt to try them on for size!
