Tuesday Ten

I'm gonna try something new on Tuesdays.  So here it is, The Tuesday Ten!

Ten things I'm really excited to buy and wear this Spring and Summer:


1.) Gypsy Coin T-Strap Sandal!  They are so cute and I really must own them!  I could also totally go for these while we're on the subject of shoes from Charlotte Russe.

2.) White dresses with brown belts worn with boots.  I'm not picky, they don't even have to be white, just light neutral colors.  I'm so into these worn with boots right now!  These three just happen to be some of my favorites.

3.) One shoulder tops!  I love them, they're cute and they're totally in for this spring and summer, which means they'll be easy to find.  I really like them in either a classic neutral, a cute bold print or with ruffles, draped fabric or some kind of embellishments!

4.) Shorts with boots.  I'm Southern, I live in a small country town in West Virginia so of course I'm all about this.  I don't know if it's "trendy" but I do know that I think it's totally cute and that I'm totally going to rock it!

5.) Vintage inspired clothing.  I love mod cloth, they have the cutest dresses.  I love a full skirt, and luckily they look amazing with kitten heels, which are coming back in by the way.

6.) Hair accessories!  I really love the lace flowers headbands and the hair jewelry type deal, it's so cute and I really just can't get enough of it!

7.) Sunglasses are probably my number one favorite thing to buy in Spring and Summer.  I already own tons of pairs, but I always feel the need to buy more.  I just really really love them in a crazy obsessive kind of way.

8.) Super flat sandals.  If my sandals don't have a stiletto heel then they can't have any heel at all.  I hate chunky sandals, so I only buy super flat ones.  I already have quite a few pair, but I could always use more.  For some reason I just feel like they look more put together and chic.  I do have a couple of pairs of the chunky sandals that I wear when the boys are out playing and I may get dirty.

9.) Swimsuits, and preferably this one.  Seriously, how hot is that?

10.) Tanks and Camis!  I love them, I wear them under open long sleeve shirts, cardigans and all that during the winter and fall so I'm always excited to see them come back in the warmer months.  I'm really loving long, thin and slightly baggy tanks for this summer to wear with cute jeans and heels or shorts and boots!

I'm linking up with the following Meme's today as well:

I dig all of these trends! Just did a post yesterday on my favorite spring trends. So excited for the nicer weather!

I wrecked my cowboy boots last summer so replacing those is topping my list for spring style.

HAWT! Love all of your choices!

I have sandals a lot like that..but they're gold. I normally don't love flat shoes..because..you know, I'm vertically challenged..but they are very in...so I might have to suck it up!

Great picks!

You know I feel you on being a shorty, J, since I'm not even 5 foot 4 myself. I can wear fetish height heels and still not be as tall as most people I know! haha It's sad for me.

I am so excited for warmer weather too! So ready to break out my summer stuff for the long haul. Cowboy boots are super cute, I need to get a new pair too.

I so want a one shouldered dress. I wish these trends came with age limits. I know I can't rock boots and shorts at my age, but surely a one shoulder dress is cool. Right?

Ashlee @ A Housewife Manifesto said...

Heather, I'll be rockin' shorts with boots when I'm in my 50's I'm sure. (= Besides girl, I just looked at your profile and you're from Texas, you're never too old for shorts with boots when you're a Southern lady.

You can't go wrong with a one shoulder dress, at any age!

You could even try getting a floaty one shoulder tunic a couple sizes too big and get one of those cute super wide belts with the buckles, or maybe a braided brown belt depending on the color of the tunic shirt, and belting it at your natural waist. If it's long enough and you're comfortable you could wear it as a flirty, cute daytime look with boots!

Then just change your boots out for booties or some heels, add some jewelry and a cute pair of dark wash jeans or leggings and you have the perfect outfit for date night, a friends party or an epic girls night out!

Thank you Jennifer! I'm glad to e-meet you as well! (=

I don't think I'm so excited about spring and summer wear since I'm still trying to get rid of my baby fat, but I do know that I cannot WAIT until the sun finally comes out and it stops raining so much!!! Lol!

Thanks for following my blog! I'm returning the favor!

Very good choices. I have 3 or 4 pairs of super cute sunglasses, but I never wear them - ever. I'm not sure why, but I can't get used to it being dark when it's not supposed to me. I'm such a dork.
