Summer Lovin'

I'm beyond excited for the warmer months to come!  I only have 30 more days left of school and can't wait to just relax for awhile.  I've been in a little bit of a funk lately, and the only thing that makes me feel better is thinking about summer.  Shopping also has been a source of stress relief recently.  Here are just a few things I've picked up in the past few weeks.

I adore the color blocking of the heels.  They were only $13 on!  Although I will probably get very few chances to wear them, they are great little decor for my room!  The loafers were only $11 and I are a classic piece in any wardrobe.

I immediately thought of these J.Crew sandals when I saw these leopard flip flops at Old Navy.  With a price tag of a fraction of the cost of the J.Crew ones, I couldn't pass them up. Obviously they aren't made as well as the J.Crew ones but for the price, I don't mind buying another pair half way through summer.  I also recently picked up a new pair of Sperrys!  I've wanted a pair in this light leather color for a while and when I got a 25% coupon, I knew it was time.

Both of these pieces are from Old Navy as well.  I saw this color blocked maxi dress and fell in love.  I can't wait to wear it during vacation on the beach or walking around at night.  The cobalt blue is stunning.  I also bought his cobalt blue gingham shirt.  I have been looking for an inexpensive gingham shirt for awhile and was so happy to find one at Old Navy!  It's perfect for spring.

For summer, I absolutely love anything sailor/nautical.  For that reason, this little sweater is definitely a favorite of mine right now.  I bought it at Love Culture a while ago and have waited so long for the weather to warm up.  I think it will look super cute at the beach at night with cutoffs. 

These two shorts I picked up at J.Crew and cannot wait until summer to wear them!  I'm such a sucker for seersucker! (haha get it?)  But for real, seersucker in the summer is what I live for.  These are a coral/cream striped pair and couldn't be anymore comfortable. And this sailboat pair?  Tell me these aren't the cutest little shorts ever!  Again in this creamy coral color, I can't get enough.

And my love for colored denim continues.  I picked up these neon coral color at J.Crew and I've been dying to wear them.  My camera didn't pick up the beautiful color of these pants.  It's just one of those colors the make you happy.  Neon has been seen everywhere for spring and I'm lovin' it.

Lastly, I had to have these neon magenta shorts.  Just the classic 'Chino' shorts from J.Crew, they are the perfect length for anything from school to going out at night.  The color is so bright and so happy and just scream summer to me.

These two pieces I picked up from Zara.  The first dress I bought for a family party I have next weekend.  It's a chiffon-like material and in a gorgeous cobalt color.  Don't let the look of the dress from the hanger fool you, it looks completely different on.  It was so hard to choose between the blue and ivory color, but the blue just seemed like it had a little more character.  I also picked up this skull tank, which just is so Cochella.  I've recently had a thing with skulls, which is so weird, but I loved the bight colors in this top. I plan on going back to Zara soon because literally I want everything from their spring collection.

And lastly, I recently decided to join to see what they had because I see the commercial for this site many times a day.  Like other website such as StyleMint, it's one of those sites where you are credited each month.  Everything is $39.99 and they carry everything from shoes to clothing to accessories.  For becoming a member, I received a 50% code to use that day.  I found this bag and really liked the color and shape.  It's can be super casual or dressed up a little, which I like.  The quality is okay - is equal to what the price was.  I might try buying some accessories next month and see how they compare to the bag.  Overall, I would recommend it to any friend who's on a budget and likes trendy, cute stuff.

Have you ever tried or any similar site?  Let me know!
