Fashion Friday: Coveting for Summer

Every year, there’s a few pieces that catch my eye and I drool over them all summer long. Until I either impulsively splurge or I see them on sale in August. (Usually the latter!) This year, I have my eye on several beauties I need to share…

Oh, I am SO getting a pair of scallop shorts. OH YES I AM!

Now I just adore this tank by Milly. Its so soft and flowing and beautifully cut and would be perfect on its own or layered under a blazer. Or dressed up with a maxi or down with boyfriend jeans… Of course its very spendy. Here’s a cheaper version.

And you know my fondness for stripes. I LOVE this dress!! The striping would make this very flattering!

And, speaking of stripes, I’m totally going to end up buying this suit.

And I always end up falling for at least one maxi dress per season. This year, its a linen chevron maxi dress from J. Crew!

And I will definitely need a beach cover up. Definitely.

  1. Love the dresses! I need a few new ones for summer and these are right up my alley.

  2. Great picks on your summer wishlist! I’ve seen scalloped shorts around but not in denim! Really cute! I’m also loving the one piece suit and coverup!
