Gingham | Pearls

Wearing: H&M top and shorts, JuJu Jelly sandals, Bauble Bar necklace 

In case you were wondering, yes, two items have been checked off of my lust list. One item is my Quay sunglasses and the other happens to be the ubiquitous necklace, widely worn by all bloggers, the pearl choker. I couldn't just get one, obviously, so after I ordered this one from Bauble Bar I promptly ordered another one from Zara featuring pearls that are slightly more gaudy. To go along with the necklace I put together a fairly simply outfit with shorts adorned with a subdued snake skin print, a simple gingham blouse, and my Juju's for some spunk. The perfect, comfy Sunday uniform.

A Floral Deviation

Wearing: Urban Outfitters dress (similar), Windsor Smith shoes

A floral dress? On me? What? Yes, once again I deviated from my customary, go-to pieces. When I saw this dress at Urban I thought I could Michaela-fy it with my lovely Windsor's and some cool necklaces (a choker being a must). And that is just what I did.

Wearing: Topshop shorts, Aritzia top, Windsor Smith shoes

One of my favorite looks for the hot weather is wearing long-lined tops over a bottom with lace trim, allowing just a bit of lace to peek out. This is a perfect way to make an outfit more casual. If you have a lace skirt, for example, just throw on a cotton v-neck and let it drape over. Actually, I just purchased a skirt from Zara with beautiful lace overlay that should work perfectly.  But, for today, I opted with these shorts from Topshop that will do just the trick.

Lust List: June

Over the past few weeks my life has been swallowed up by ACTs, final exams, and generally wrapping up my junior year of high school. As of today, I can thankfully say that I am done with junior year which means more time for blogging. For now, here is my "lust list" for the month of June. I love gathering items I am desiring each month and showcasing them in a cohesive way. My obsession with lingerie as casual wear has not died down, I am still obsessed to say the least and am dying for a lace slip and (multiple) Free People bralettes. A company that I recently discovered was Quay Eyewear, after searching through their website I fell in love with their sunglasses which are really affordable. We all knew pearls were going to come back soon after Karl sent his Chanel Spring 2013 collection down the runway and Zara has perfectly reinvented oversized pearls into jewelry. Oh, and yes, I would like another pair of Birks, preferably in black this time...

Pajama Prints

Wearing: H&M top, Forever 21 shorts, Windsor Smith shoes
Lace is a trend that has been in and out within the past few years but this summer it is back in an entirely different way. Sleepwear meets lace for this spring/summer. In other words, Victoria's Secret meets just about any fast-fashion retailer. Lace trim, lace slips, even those dainty lace tanks you wore ten years ago are making a comeback. These shorts from Forever 21 have lace trim on the bottom and give off even more of a "pajama" because of the plaid print. How do you feel about the pajama meets street style outbreak?
