style summer wishlist

6 // wish i were wearing

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a wish i were wearing post, but it feels like as good of a time as any! With my 30×30 over and a new season upon us, I’m shifting style gears a little. I like to describe my style as a combo of preppy hipster or hipster prep, depending on my mood, and especially depending on the season. In the summer, I tip heavy on the hipster side of the scale. Per usual, I’m drawn to styles reminiscent of both the 60s and the 90s, which I find so much fun to intertwine in my outfits. I know it’s the middle of the work week, but here’s what I wish I were wearing right now.
vintage-inspired swimwear // Okay y’all, I bought these swimsuit bottoms from Topshop and I’m smitten. It’s no secret that I’ve been struggling with my body and weight more than usual, and the idea of baring my belly has had me trippin’. I’ve wanted to try the high-waisted swimsuit trend for a few summers, so I finally bit the (surprisingly affordable) bullet and bought these babies online for $20. It took forevs for them to come from the UK, but they fit like a dream and I feel like a pin up girl.
printed headscarf // To keep with the pin up look, and also to keep my hair off my neck, I’ll be wearing lots and lots (and lots) of headscarves this summer. I’m thinking I need to take a day to scour all my favorite vintage shops to add more scarves to my collection. This one from ASOS is so friggin cute.

eyelet top // Who doesn’t love eyelet in the summertime? It’s so clean and crisp, not to mention cool, when the sweat is out in full force. Babydoll shapes are super on trend this season (which my tummy is stoked about), and this eyelet top from Topshop is in line with the vintage vibe I’m feeling lately.

black high-waisted shorts // Ooh, child, I feel so cute in these shorts. I didn’t think high-waisted shorts would be for me, but I tried these on at Forever 21 and fell in love. I will warn you that I had to size up (2 sizes) because, well, Forever 21 and because high-waisted pieces tend to fit a little slimmer than not. You’ll be seeing these around a lot this summer.

mid-heeled clogs // I resisted clogs for pretty much my entire life, and then so many of the women I look up to were wearing them at Texas Style Council last summer and talking about how much they love them and live in them. Swedish Hasbeens were obvi not in the price range, but when Old Navy came out with this pair, and then Kaity wore them on her blog, I decided to give them a try. I stopped into the mall on the eve of my birthday to try them on, just to see, and I didn’t want to take them off ever again. Clogs are typically really hard on your feet since the wood doesn’t have any give, so Old Navy provided extra cushion for the pushin’ (definitely not how that phrase is supposed to be used). I’ll be blogging more about these lovelies later, but I wanted to give a quick heads up about them, in case you’re in the market.

What do you wish you were wearing on this fine day?
