july. the. list.

Welp! We’re more than halfway through July and I’m not one bit happy about it. (Side note: Brace yourself for a summer ice cream/frozen treats bucket list, ‘cuz it’s coming to the blog later this week!) While fashion mags and websites are slowly beginning to introduce fall’s top trends, I’m all about those dog days of summer. Think: Breezy skirts, printed shorts and sandals for days. Here’s a snippet of a few things I’m currently coveting this month — enjoy!

1. Plaid Pleated Tank Top (Madewell) // Enter the perfect pleated top, featuring a swingy silhouette, that will keep you cool even on the hottest days of summer. You can style the plaid print with white skinny jeans, denim cutoffs or a cute mini skirt. Your move.  
2. Pintrill Emoji Pin (Madewell) // It’s official: I need to invest in a denim jacket just so that I have an excuse to pick up a few of these enamel emoji-inspired pins. I call dibs on the sprinkled donut, pizza and info desk girl.  
3. Multi-colored Sandals (H&M) // Too much color? No such thing. As far as budget-friendly sandals go, these rainbow lace-up stunners are everything. Not only will they lend major pep to your step, but the outfit possibilities are endless. 
4. Ivy Round Sunglasses (Henri Bendel) // Yes, I apparently do need to add yet another pair of sunnies to my collection. Equal parts sophisticated and glam, these round tortoiseshell shades won’t go unnoticed. I imagine them looking perf with a LBD or jeans and a button-down. 
5. Mini Sofia Crossbody (Rebecca Minkoff) // I’m low-key obsessed with this mini crossbody bag featuring playful tassels (!). Can you blame me? It just screams SUMMER. The compact size is perfect for the girl-on-the-go who wants to carry just the essentials when out and about.  
6. JM Drygoods Embroidered Vintage Jean Shorts (Madewell) // It’s hard to say if I would actually wear these vintage floral denim shorts IRL or not, but I love how they’re styled on Madewell’s website. Wear ‘em for an outdoor concert, the county fair or a weekend spent glamping.  
7. Striped Cotton-Jersey Mini Dress (Net-a-Porter) // OMG, how comfortable (and Parisian chic) does this striped t-shirt dress look? Toss it on alongside a crossbody bag and lace-up sandals for a daytime casual look or wear it with a denim jacket come after-hours.
8. Taking Flight Pelican Ring (Kate Spade) // Leave it to Kate Spade to design the most whimsical rings possible. Just think how cute this little pelican fella would look perched on your finger. Pssst: there's a matching bangle, pendant necklace and tote (my favorite!), too.
