With summer officially here, it’s been hot and glorious! Days spent swimming, adventuring, and recovering from a hectic year are well deserved for everyone who’s just finishing school this week!
While I finished with my academic year back in April (one of the perks of university) it’s only now begun to feel like summer, so I’ve finally been restocking my seasonal wardrobe with awesome new stuff. Here is my wish list for the season, including pieces from Zara (my new obsession), Soludos, Urban Outfitters, and cult classic, Forever21!
Cutout Midi – Urban Outfitters
As soon as I saw this dress I fell in love! White is my favourite colour for summer sundresses, and the cute little cutouts this number sports are perfect for adventuring and picnics! Add lace up leather sandals, a straw boater, your fave carry-all tote, and you’re ready for some summer adventuring! Bonus: It’s currently on sale!!
Palm Print Midi – Urban Outfitters
This midi dress is honestly too cute! I’ve been eyeing it for actual months and now that it’s on sale, I may just have to swoop in and grab it! I love the palm print and can see it paired with flat, or wedge sandals and simple gold jewelry, the perfect day to night sundress!
Ruffle Sleeve Mini – Forever21
Forever 21, our trusty first stop for the season’s trends, did everything right with this dress! From the perfect colour (#whitedressteam) to the ruffled sleeves, I can find nothing wrong! It’s the perfect blank canvas to unleash your personality on, and could be styled in so many ways it’s startling!
Embroidered Floral Dress – Forever21
This cute little dress is giving me serious beach vibes! Everyone needs an easy, breezy sundress that’ll carry you from the beach to the farmers market (or from one lecture to the next tbh) and I’d have to say this would be it! The subtle floral embroidery is oh so pretty, and the vibrant red is honestly perfect!
Halter Maxi – Forever21
Maxi dresses are a summer staple, and I love the easy shape and open back of this one! Perfect for throwing over a bathing suit after a day of swimming or dressing up with wedges and big earrings for dinner! Also, loving the stripes!
Denim Jumpsuit – Zara
I’ve recently been very into rompers and pant suits, and when I saw this Zara number I got so excited! Ruffles, denim and cutouts all in one spunky little outfit! Honestly, this romper looks super comfy and is the type of wardrobe staple everyone needs for those days when putting together an outfit is harder than it should be! Add sandals and simple jewelry for a daytime outfit, or wedges and brighter statement accessories for a night out!
Peplum Top – Zara
I actually bought this top the other day and I love it! The blue and white stripes are so fresh and clean (my favourite things for summer) and it’s light weight and flowy! I love peplums because they’re basically flattering for everyone, and you can style them in hundreds of ways! I’ve worn this beauty over white shorts with a boater hat and sandals, over a vintage denim skirt with sneakers and with jeans and wedges for dinner! Very versatile, very simple, and so perfect for summer!
Mini Cross Body – Zara
I absolutely adore the colour of this bag! Yellow is such a great colour pop, especially in a summer wardrobe of mainly blue and white (yes that’s me). The shape of this bag is also pretty retro and I can always get behind a good vintage inspired look!
Leather Cross Body – Zara
This white beauty would be such a cute addition to any wardrobe! The colour and shape provide the perfect mix of pizzazz and functionality! This would be the perfect bag to add a bit of personality to a jeans and t-shirt look and while the clean white is extra summery, you can no doubt rock this bag in any season!
Flamingo Print Espadrilles – Soludos
After discovering this brand about a year ago, Soludos has become my go-to place for summer shoe inspiration! They have pretty much every style of sandal you could want, and their embroidered slip-on espadrilles are so adorable! I especially love the colours of this flamingo and palm tree pair!
There we go, my condensed summer wish list (because let’s be honest my real list is wayyyy longer)!
Hope you’re all enjoying a relaxing and lovely day!
