Summer Wardrobe Essentials & Wishlist

January 20, 2015

As soon as the sun comes out, so do the legs. Mine especially. There’s nothing I love more than shorts, or skirts on a hot sunny day. But this summer I’ve noticed a few gaps in my wardrobe. I haven’t jumped on them as an excuse to go shopping though. I’m making an effort to use what I have (which is going to be a recurring philosophy this year).

My current summer essentials look a little like this

sunnies | I have three on rotation, by Ray Ban, Fossil and French Connection UK
espadrilles | because I’m not a huge fan of flip flops
structured shorts in black | because summer still means work and meetings
printed shorts | for a little fun and colour
racer back tops | because they bring out my shoulders
woven/straw handbag

details: sunnies Ray Ban | chambray shirt Levis similar here & summer alternative | skirt Isabel Marant Etoile | straw bag Espirit similar here | heels Forever New similar here on sale for $18!

On the summer wishlist 

structured denim shorts | those ones are perfect and with a little work they could be appropriate for meetings
frayed denim shorts | these seem to be all the rage now and by the looks of things it’s going to take me forever to find  a pair that’s right for me
t-shirts | this seems obvious, no? But I actually don’t own many t-shirts and I desperately one this one in black and white!
white tops | but with a twist like this one and this one I’m probably going to get these made for me with natural/organic fabric

There are quite a few things on my wishlist but I’m working through them intentionally. The way I’m making the decision is to think about what’s really missing and what would be the most practical. An easy one would be the denim shorts. I don’t own denim shorts, but I do own structured shorts, so perhaps the gap in my wardrobe as the frayed ones for the summer.

What have you got on your wishlist this season?
How do you work your way through it?
