OOTD: That Summer Feeling

Navy lace tank with pinstriped belt (A&F Kids, winter 2012); red/white/navy plaid shorts (A&F, summer 2011)

Silver bangles (AE, summer 2010)

Silver bow headband (Target, fall 2010); silver sparkly fireball necklace (AE, winter 2009)

Party nails! with silver sparkly stacked rings (AE, winter 2010)

School's done in a week, the weather's been beyond beautiful and summer is just around the corner. I've been living it up by breaking out some of my favorite summery outfits, like these Fourth of July-inspired shorts. I did a little pattern mixing, incorporating the pinstriped belt around the tank, which worked pretty well to pull the whole outfit together. And the silvery accessories matched perfectly.

What kinds of outfits say summer to you?

Gaga for Yoga [Shorts]

My favorite tennis outfit: navy hoodie (HCo., fall 2008); white lacy cami (Aero, spring 2011); royal blue yoga shorts (HCo., NEW)

I am not one of those college girls who's perfectly happy showing up to class in a pair of leggings and a hoodie, or tempo shorts and a t-shirt. I like to keep my athletic wear for actually wearing for working out, thank you very much! But, I really love this yoga short trend.

I finally bought my first pair of yoga shorts about a month ago, and they are so nice to wear for yoga (duh!), tennis, anything exercise-related and even just for hanging out around the house. The pair I got are so comfy, and the bright blue color is a real stand-out. I'm not sure if I'll ever wear them to class, but I want to try pairing them with more dressed-up pieces and see if they work.

Pretty Little Things

Pretty Little Things
So summer is just around the corner, can you feel it? I almost can't believe it, it feels like 2012 just started and now I'm almost done with my sophomore year of college! But I'm not complaining, summer is by far my favorite season (though I'm enjoying spring, especially this year because it's so warm)--weather and clothing wise. I'm excited to stock up on some of the summery things I've been seeing pop up in my favorite stores. I think the best way to celebrate the end of another school year is with a major shopping trip, right?! 

Accessories are always a favorite of mine, but especially in summer, because they are so bright and fun. I want to invest in more scarves, especially square and loop scarves in all patterns and colors. Sunglasses are definitely a must-have, and I think I'll need at least one more pair, because mine have a tendency to break or get lost! Jewelry is a staple year-round, but for summer I'm really loving boho-inspired pieces. And sandals are all my feet lives in...why not buy some fun, pretty pairs?

What's your must-have summer accessory?
