so for this FriYAY Five Link-Up (hosted by Mar, Courtney & Cynthia), we have a “free Friday” — which means i just get to ramble about anything my little wandering heart desires — so i’m choosing to talk about one of my fave things at this time of year:
summer clothes. because YES.
i’m a big believer in cultivating your own personal style rather than adhering to all the ever-changing fashion trends. i think clothes should be an expression of who you are: what works for you, what suits your personality, and what’s going to make you feel like your best self. i know i’m casual, beach-bummy (although living in a city, go figure), boho-hippie-wannabe-surf-chick style, so summer clothes are my absolute faves. i get so excited to finally be able to dress the way i wish i could all year ’round.
ONE: bright bikinis. my love for swimsuits runs deep (as my friends & you regular blog readers know). i’m meant to live at the beach, i think — i believe the days you can wake up and the only thing you have to do that day is put on a bikini are the best days. i’m sure it’s not a big surprise, but VS is my go-to bikini stop for so many reasons: dig the styles, they fit me perfectly, solid quality, and stellar sales. i have a bajillion from there and i’ve never been disappointed. most recent purchase this week, which i’m totally loving and can’t wait to wear at the lake this wknd:
the Itsy Bottom in a tropical dyad (first neoprene suit and really into it):
TWO: snapbacks. because they’re fun, they’re sporty, they’re perfect for beach hair and summer hair and days you don’t want to think about your hair. i love ’em and basically don’t leave the house without one in the summer. that may or may not be directly correlated to the fact that i rarely do my hair. 🙂
pretty sure i need to add this gem to my collection next:
THREE: Havaianas. the next best thing to being barefoot. and i love being barefoot.
FOUR: wide-armed tanks. lulu bras and bikini tops + airy tanks/cropped tops = perfect pairing. loving this one right now, esp w/ boyfriend jeans:
FIVE: backless. into it and need this.
