“Clothes Mean Nothing Until Someone Lives In Them”
— Marc Jacobs
Hey Mimosa Girls! I’m bringing you a new blog feature, currently coveting! I’m going to pick items I’m loving that week and bring them straight to you! I know, I know, total shift from my normal outfit posts, but hey, why not share the things I’m loving with all of you?
So here you’ll find the things I’m obsessing over, some unusual, some mainstream, so you can have an insight into how I build my wardrobe. Also, I totally just bought number 3, this super fun phone case.
The items in the picture are kind of like my mood board. I’ve been envisioning all the summer things, and picturing myself on a beach in Monaco (like that’s going to happen) so building a travel inspired summer wardrobe will simply have to do!
So, in the interest of shopping and spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need (but totally do because summer): here’s the mood board, shoppable and all! Just click the pictures *click click, shop shop*.
P.S. Ad blockers won’t let you see all the things, so turn it off for the time being.
Summer Mood Board One:
This first set is composed of basics. Killer espadrilles (the only form of wedge I’m semi-okay with), a summer tote, the *ahem* dope phone case, a romper WITH frills on the back, and an off the shoulder blouse. I’d consider these staples, an on trend blouse, shoes that go from day to night, a seasonal tote (work, beach, whatever tickles your fancy), you get the picture.
This next board is all about prints! I LOVE prints for summer, the more color the better. So when I’m building my summer wardrobe I look for statement pieces. I live in the south, which means it’s HOT. Like 100% degrees hot with 85% humidity, trust me– there’s no layering with that kind of heat. Because of that, I really need my main items to do the talking, to carry the weight and do the work of the outfit. So check out these perfect summer pieces that won’t leave you feeling plain!
Summer Mood Board Two:
This collection contains some of my absolute favorites, can we talk about those pom-pom shoes? I love that these gladiators have decoration, tassels and all. they’re so awesome and a great way to add sparkle to your outfit. Foot jewelry, I’m about it. I also added two more rompers that I’m totally coveting, the pink one from Anthropologie and the blue one from NastyGal. Of course you’ve got to complete an outfit, so I added another great pair of espadrilles, and a beautiful fluffy lemon clutch. Also linked, the perfect pair of distressed blue jeans for summer, and they’re only $54!
Summer Mood Board Three:
This final board is a roundup of your last summer essentials! You’ve got two beautiful dresses, one with stripes that I actually just bought (hey, I’m a stripe addict) and they look they’re painted on, sooo beautiful. I also linked a gorgeous off the shoulder dress, which I like because it has polkadots, breaking up the idea of the plain, shift dress, and of course a final romper. I also added in a simple brown sandal, which has a gold heel and still adds a little bit of height (5’1 holla at yah shorties). And finally, to round out the looks, two purses. One is a perfect beach tote, check out those festive pom poms, and another is a great everyday/festival bag, from Nastygal that’s under 50 bucks!
