Summer Inspiration

It’s finally starting to get sunny in Washington! After work each day, I’ve been heading outside and either running/walking or laying out on the grass with a good book, lots of sunscreen, and my iPod.

Here’s what I’ve been feeling for summer this year…

The ever classic combination of stripes and red – I’ve always been a huge fan of nautical inspired style, and this summer is really no different.

I also tend to be really fond of soft florals in summertime. While springtime florals are nice, I really feel like they come into their own during summer.

Though I tend to hate rompers – this floral one is too gorgeous. Found here.

Once it’s bright and warm out, all those awesome strappy back tops can start to come out! It’s a lot easier to show off awesome details like these when you aren’t freezing to death.

Big floppy hats are one of my favorite summer accessories. I’m still looking for the perfect one…

Also cute shorts! I love shorts with a fun little detail like pom poms or lace.

I’ve been looking at swimsuits and sunglasses as well, but I think that’s a whole other post – honestly!

Have you started looking at summer clothing yet? What’s caught your eye?
