As all of the fun spring catalogs have been arriving in my mailbox, I have begun to make my seasonal wishlist. I will be traveling a bit for work this summer, so topping my list are a few new dresses and pieces that will work for work, and of course some fun weekend options.
Vineyard Vines' Xanadu Shift Dress--navy and white with gorgeous applique and trim? If my wedding was this summer this would be a major contender for bridal luncheons or showers, but I can't imagine having it sit in my closet that long, so I may need to make this work appropriate with a cardigan and nude pumps.
Behold, some of the cutest pants ever made in hot pink eyelet. I have a ton of pairs of Cafe Capris from J.Crew, and they're perfect for my work with silk blouses, tunics, and button downs, and with tees or tanks on the weekends.
I have definitely regretted not snapping up anything in last year's Derby print from Vineyard Vines. I love the Bitsy top in this year's print with white jeans.
I think I've lusted after this coat to almost all of my friends already. The Camila's gold buttons and stripes make it over-the-top perfection for throwing over jeans and tees and dresses whenever there's a chill or a breeze.
I practically live in Lilly's knit dresses during the summer (or anytime I'm running late to work!) and the ruffle sleeves on the Maya may let me get away without a cardigan as long as it's not too short.
Madras screams summer and I love the blues and greens in this great dress from Lands End Canvas.
As I already have one lovely lobster skirt, is another in red (with a very different cut) too much? I'm guessing no if it's this adorable one from Anthro.
I always love Lilly toile (with the Jubilee pink one being at the top of my list), and the Allura dress is simple enough to let the print shine.
I'd like to wear the Milly Calais dress out this weekend, please and thank you.
The Millie would match practically anything making it a bit more air-conditioned office appropriate-- especially as pink is a neutral, right?
I love everything about this outfit, and it'd be perfect to wear to baseball games this summer. In fact, I probably have all of the other items already, so just need to add the cute terry mini and I could wear my fun madras topsiders I got last summer.
I have joined the ranks of the rest of the blogosphere by yearning for a pair of mint jeans (or anything that color, really), and this pair looks perfect with the ankle zipper and cropped length.
This rope necklace tee would probably end up being another one of the striped tees I wear to death with cropped pants.
Stay tuned for my accessories favorites! What is on your spring/summer clothing wishlist?
