Our Summer Wish Lists

With summer right around the corner, we’ve been thinking about our own summer wardrobes.  As you can imagine, when the three of us get together, the conversation almost always turns to fashion. Sometimes we talk about food, sometimes we talk about our families, but mostly we talk about fashion. In fact, we often serve as each other's stylists, editing one another's shopping carts and commenting on different outfit choices.

We spent quite a bit of time in airports on our way home from ICAN last week. We spent most of this time talking about (you guessed it)....what we have on our summer wish lists! We figured, why not share it with you! You can shop everything on our wishlists, in the lookbook at the end of this post.

Faith is all about florals & polka dots!

I can't get away from florals right now! I know, I know, to quote Miranda Priestly, "Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking." But, I still love them! I've had my eyes on these floral sneakers that are perfect for spring/summer. Sneakers are a great way to try a trend that adds interest/texture without going overboard. This hightop pair by converse are also so fun and colorful - just looking at them makes me smile!

I'm also trying to incorporate more polka-dotted prints into my wardrobe this season. When choosing the right dot size I try and remember that smaller patterns minimize an area while larger patterns maximize an object. So depending on what you're trying to accomplish, choose wisely!

Lili is searching for the perfect going out bag and is loving matched sets!

I'm looking for a sleek, white bag I can wear to brunch or a night out. I don't like to carry a clutch (always afraid I'm going to lose it), so my nighttime bag must have a strap. I love the sophisticated and modern feel of Neely & Chloe. The Lady Bag No.19 is my absolute favorite. Hopefully it comes back in stock! That's what I get for waiting.

I'm typically a jeans and t-shirt type of girl, but in the summer, especially in New York City, jeans are the worst. They are hot, sticky and just a mess. I'm making a point to incorporate more breathable and summery pieces into my wardrobe. I've had my eye on a number of matching sets. I love them because you can wear the top/bottom combo together or mix and match with other pieces you already own. Faithful the Brand has a ton of great options, with the Sloane top and Linnie skirt being my favorites.

Stacy is loving whimsical espadrilles and is on the hunt for a hold-everything white tote.

I’m planning on giving my feet a break from heels this summer.  Luckily I have so many cute flats to choose from. I already have a decent selection of fashion sneakers and I’m looking for something that feels more summery.  This season’s vast array of whimsical espadrilles are just the thing my summer wardrobe needs. The only problem I’m having is choosing which pair, there are so many cute options!

When I’m out and about for the day, I often have my laptop, a comfy flat (see above), a water bottle, notebook, and a lunch or some snacks along for the ride - all of this stuff calls for a large handbag. I have some great totes that I’ve been using the past few months, but I want something that feels lighter (literally and figuratively) and summerier. I had my eye on this fab tote by Everlane (in white), but like Lili, I waited too long and its sold out.  I’m going to keep searching for the perfect summer tote, and when I see it, I’m not going to hesitate!
