Color Convention

I just about died and went to heaven when I saw this picture. I love the accordion-like folds in the jacket, which boy, I cant say enough of. Look at those crazy tricked out colors going all pastel on us, not to mention the green and gold beading. Total perfection. Id wear this all year long, plus its a nice break from all the Chris Pine photos that have been floating around my laptop the last couple of days. Speaking of wearing/clothing/seasons, this is my current summer "must have" list:
  • neon
  • delicate silver chains
  • loose tank tops
  • oversized pocket tees
  • light blue denim pencil skirt
  • big oversized frames
  • bleached shorts
  • and more...!
What do you plan on wearing this summer?

sounds wonderful!
i love the idea of "delicate silver chains"
very cute

im excited for your summer outfits <3

Daphne said...

Love that photo.
My standout summer thing is going to be RED LIPS! It's odd, I've been wearing them a LOT recently, but it's not my usual look. My lips are full enough that nude lipstick looks fine, and I generally go for darker eyes, but in the last month I can't get enough red lipstick, lipgloss, lip pencil! It's odd, but it's just the thing for me this summer, I think!

Oh my! That pic is surely gorgeous! The colours, the folds, incredible! :)

I'm heading towards Winter instead of Summer, so my list will consist of:

*Opaque stockings
*Finding the perfect pair of riding leather boots
*Striped wool gloves (fingerless and not)
*Longline cardigans
*Sweater dresses

The fabric reminds me of the marble/bubble paper you make at primary school...that's no bad thing.

Midnight traveller said...

AMAZING. I would want to live in it too. It would make everyday feel magic.

I'm going in to winter too so no exciting summer wish list for me. I just want more winter hats, some shoes and a new coat. Wish though. Not have list.

Emmy said...

hmmm, summer must haves....

-light, floaty dresses
-loosely clingy tanks

the beading is amazinggg and i most definitely want neon for the summer but all i have is a flourescent pink ccskye bracelet and some neon pink nail polish - note to self - must be more brave and tackle neon head-on.

Natalie said...

I've just discovered your blog, and I have to say I love it! As for what I'll be wearing this summer, definetely breezy wrap skirts. And I'm glad to know that others have been obsessing over Chris Pine as much as I have been :)

Sunset said...

Woow, those colors... stunning.

For me:
- loose, drapey tanks
- sandals (non-gladiator)

But a lot of these things I like normally, not just for summer... haha. :)
