Summer Goodies

So I've been shopping. A lot. I mean, what else are you supposed to do on vacation? Specifically, I've been on the hunt for great summer dresses, especially maxi dresses, which I plan to live in all summer long. As a result, you may be subject to multiple posts of the same dresses with various permutations of accessories...

Here's a sneak peek at a few of the items that are on their way to me:

And I'm sorry I've gotten behind on posting this week. I don't really have any excuse except that words have just not been abundant. I can barely even get a sentence down before I start to cringe at the typeface. I seem to be collecting outfit pictures, however, so I best get to work! Maybe I'll start by changing the typeface...

  1. Ooh I Love summer. Can't wait to overhaul my summer wardrobe this year. Think I'm going to go crazy with prints. Your haul looks fabulous, especially no. 5. looking forward to seeing how you bring them to life. Jolene.
    P.s I am in Australia so my summer wardrobe going to stay just a dream for a few months yet.

  2. All cute!  

  3. Jessica, I found your blog last month and you've become my favorite blogger, ever. You are like my style twin, but better. I just picked up some sandals and thought you might like them too. They're from the Christian Siriano line at Payless, "La Bonita". :)

  4. thank you so much!!! and i have indeed been eyeing those sandals, esp. the teal. which color did you get?

  5. i'm looking forward to that dress too! it may be a tad risky for a print, but i'm hoping all that symmetry has slimming powers. i also love that it has sleeves - so rare for maxis!

  6. No problem! :) The teal caught my eye first but I ended up buying both colors. The natural color will go with so many things. They're actually really comfortable! I hope you get the real ones. They're on sale :)

  7. i'm on the site now! i also really like these babies, esp. since i've been looking for a sassy blue sandal!

  8. Oops, meant "teal" ones.

  9. Great! I hope you bought the teal ones! Also, for some reason I can't follow your link to the sassy blue sandals, can you re-post? I'd love to see them!

  10. oops! well, i fixed the link above, but here it is in full:,11.0,Regular&catId=cat10088&_requestid=703568 

    unfortunately, i tried these on in the store, and they're not the most flattering sandal. this is a bummer since i was sure I'd finally found a great blue sandal (for cheap!) but, my store DID have the christian siriano sandals in the nude color, and I got them! thanks for the suggestion!

  11. I'm sorry to hear that-- the blue sandal looked pretty good online.  But I'm happy you got the nude colored sandals and I'll keep an eye out for blue sandals for you!


Thank you so much for commenting! Reading what you have to say truly makes my day!
