Summer Wishlist

This summer, my wardrobe is definitely in for a makeover. I got rid of A BUNCH of clothing leaving lots of free space for new and adventurous clothing. I thought I would compile together a few things that I’m really wanting this summer season. So let’s get into it!

I’ve been looking for one piece bathing suits for a while and we all know that Zaful can always hook you up. This bathing suit above, with the simple silhouette and mesh detailing looks straight off the Pacsun website. I love the mesh at the collar and down the sides. And before or after swimming I can see this paired with my red track shorts and ugh, that is a LOOK.

Another one piece I’m obsessed with. I love the cut out back and sides, the lace up detail and really just the print itself is such a selling point. And again, this looks like such a high end piece but is so affordable. Another must have. 

So Rompers were really in last year, and I see then making a come back this year. I love how men, more so than before, are also jumping into the trend. I love the colors and designs in this. It is like a rainbow on the ground. So cute for summer. 

Isn’t this top to die for? It’s embroidery, which y’all know I’m down for, but it’s yellow?? There’s a white version, but I love this yellow one. Since when? First red, now yellow. I think this top would be so cute with high waisted shorts. 

Okay, the price of this shirt is wow. Ridiculous. But it’s Tommy. And I love it so much. No telling if I will actually bite the bullet for this shirt and drain my bank account. I’ll have to scavenge through some thrift stores first for it just to be sure I don’t skip any deals. 

If I bought this romper, along with the other in this post, I’d have 3 cover up rompers. And I’m so cool with that. I have a 3rd one that I want to show yall, and trust me, it’s so adorable. 

I kept looking at the dresses when I was online shopping but I was more drawn to the rompers, which was the exact opposite of how I was last year. Just proof your style can change and not to force anything. 

These are a few things that I really really want this summer, or similar multiple clothing articles. Thanks for reading!!

Short H & M Haul

I think H&M is my favorite store. They have basics (like Jean shorts and tank tops) but they also have more personable clothing (like cigarette pants and graphic tees). I’m a huge fan of their graphic t-shirts. 

Yesterday, which was Monday, my friend and I went to H&M and I picked up a few things. I consider this to be part one of a summer haul, because I still have a lot more clothing to get for the summer. But this is a good start. And I wanted to share these things with you all. 

The first thing we have is this super cute T-shirt. H&M clothing runs very small in my opinion, so to prevent this thin -see through- shirt from sticking to my body, I sized up to a large. I really like the pale pink color with the white trim. I think this piece is a basic T that I could match with almost anything. 

Graphic T shirts have always been my go-to. They’re an easy way to elevate an outfit without very much effort. During the summer, when it’s way too hot to be layering multiple pieces if clothing, every shirt counts. I love the color of this shirt and the lettering. The material is very lightweight, so it will be perfect for this season. The only thing I don’t like too much about the material is that it wrinkles VERY easily, but that’s a small price to pay.

If you have an Instagram you know how trendy this shirt is. The embroidered rose is just in right now. The thing that really makes this shirt stand out is the “Live a life in Full Bloom” quote above the flower which I absolutely am obsessed with. This shirt is actually mesh, with a built in tank crop top underneath.

See how you can kind of see my hand beneath the fabric? Since its mesh, this shirt is an obvious must-have for summer. That 3 trends in one. Embroidery, mesh, and a crop top. Perfect. And it’s gorgeous on the body. Throw on a pair of Jean shorts and boom! Got yourself an outfit. 

These next shorts are my holy grail shorts. Okay let’s back up. One time is the recent past I went to H&M and picked up some shorts exactly like these but in grey. Those shorts are. my. life. I love those shorts. So when I went back I decided I had to get another pair in a new color and picked this dark blue. 

These shorts are just comfy and cute. Soft to the touch. Very durable shorts. I don’t know; there’s not much to say except that you NEED a pair of these. As soon as I got home, I put these on. That’s love. 

Thank you all so much for reading. Be sure to pick up those shorts on your way out of my website. You won’t regret it!! Be prepared for more hauls, beauty and clothing, making random appearances for the next few weeks. Next I’m gonna hit up a thrift store near by. I haven’t done a thrifting haul in a lonnngggg time.

My Red Obsession 

When I was in high school, there were a few things I hated and would never wear. I hated sweatpants, ballet flats (my favorite shoe were high tops or ankle booties), knee high boots, and a few other things. Among all of my very closed minded hated fashion was the color red. 

Red was like a crime to nature. I hated everything that looked red. I wouldn’t wear it, I wouldn’t draw or paint with it. Nothing. Nah dah. And as how I’ve stopped being so closed about the other things I stuck my nose up to (now I even wear sweatpants to work if the opportunity arrises) my wardrobe is now craving red. 

I’ve been wearing this red shirt like everyday for the past week. I love it with shorts and flats. It’s my boyfriends, so it’s oversized. It’s simply a bright red, so I have no idea why I love it so much right now, but I can’t get over it. 

Next is this button up revlon shirt. It has thin red stripes, but also other colors too, like black and green. It can be paired with a lot of things, my favorite being this black tank top and my green pants that I wore in my Breezy Beautiful post. It’s so weightless for summer, I can’t get enough of the silhouette either.

I realized I really liked red when I randomly put on red nail polish. Me? And red nail polish? That’s like never happened. What is even happening to me right now??? I also painted with it. 

That’s right. I painted these shoes. The original soles were a dark brown, and perfectly fine. But inspiration struck, and I went through all of my paints to (for some reason) pick RED!!! These shoes just need another coat of red, and a top layer to protect the color, and they’ll be good to go. Now I’m surrounded by it at all times. I’m even covering up with a red blanket as I write this. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse:

I’m drinking red things too. I officially have a problem. Shirts, shoes, nails, and now I’m ingesting it. I can’t help myself. 

I used to surround myself with cool colors, like blue, green, and purple. But now all the sudden I’m drawn to oranges, yellows, and especially red. I don’t know if it’s because of the summer or if it has something to do with my emotional or mental state, no clue. Just another thing in my life that’s changing. 

Thank you for reading!! I thought this would be a funny little thing to write about. Let me know if you have any current obsessions you can’t get enough of. See you soon!
