Wishlist – Summer Dress Edition

I have to admit, I’ve never been a summer person. My skin reacts pretty badly to heat, and I hate the feeling of being sticky and sweaty. Maybe it’s because I’ve never known a summer without humidity (which makes things worse), but it’s my least favorite season. I’d rather be bundled up in a sweater sipping on some hot tea than outside in 95 degree weather.

Anyways, because of this, I kind of hate shopping for summer clothing. But I’m trying to be more on top of it, instead of waiting until it starts being hot as balls outside and I have nothing in my closet but sweaters and jeans. And right now, I’m starting with dresses.

I’ve narrowed it down to a few silhouettes I know I’ll look good in, and then specific fabrics that will do well in the heat (i.e. me sweating bullets).

Tee Shirt Dresses

Ah, the good ol’ tee shirt dress. These are so great because you can just throw them on and instantly look put together. I already have 3 in my closet, although for some reason 2 of those are black and white striped…

The one item I currently don’t have any of: linen dresses. Linen is really great during the warmer months, since they way it’s woven allows for more air flow. And I am ALL about that for summer time. I’ll definitely be buying at least one linen dress before the end of the month.

Wrap Dresses

And last but not least: wrap dresses. Personally, wrap dresses are one of the only styles of dresses that look good on me. I think it’s the whole cinching in the waist deal. These are typically my go to, especially for the summer.

Fall Clothing Wishlist – Sezane, Zara, & Madewell

Is it fall weather out yet? NOPE. As I’m sitting here writing this, it is currently 80 DEGREES OUTSIDE. It is almost OCTOBER. How some people claim global warming is beyond me, but that’s an entirely different topic…

This post is about all the items I’m currently eyeing for my fall wardrobe, not a heated debate topic that really shouldn’t be a debate.
