wanted: summer

I've been shopping with my sister all morning with nothing but spring and summer on my mind. I had quite a specific list of items in mind (button-up tanks, loafers, printed skirts) and came back with a bunch of beauty products, so once I got home I took my search to the Internet.

I love the touch of class something as small as a button can add, and the variety of styles within the broad "button-up" category. You can go for something more fun like this bright coral or polka dot, but use a muted color or add a silky bow for a more dressed-up look.

Loafers are an obvious choice to follow my recent obsession with ballet flats. Whether you are into prints, classic styles such as this pair from Topshop, or more of a driving-loafer style, you are sure to find a pair that will suit your needs.


If any of you are a fan of Zooey Deschanel's new show New Girl, you know where I'm getting this. I love her collection of flowy, bright miniskirts that bring such a youthful look to your typical warm-weather uniform. I have big plans to stock up this summer.

The warm weather has been teasing me lately. Apparently there's a bit of snow expected tonight, which might put my summer dreams to sleep for a few more months...
