Summer Cravings


The bf and I have been cat-sitting for his sister in the beach town/old fart suburb of White Rock, BC. Aside from difficulties with the cat (who has as much energy as a kitten, even though she's four, and has a penchant for clawing you in your sleep), we're having a nice time in this sleepy little town. The beach, in particular, is a gorgeous place to be on a warm, glowing night.









This little taste of summer that we had (I say little since it is raining today) got me craving the incoming wardrobe change that comes with the season. Though my clothes-buying budget is slashed considerably and I actually won't be able to purchase any of these items, this is the look and theme I am going to attempt to re-create AND live-in all summer long, reusing what clothes I already have, perhaps splurging on an item from time to time AND frequenting thrift stores. I've already been quite lucky with my thrifting finds! (you can look for a post about that later this week :)

I made this on Polyvore last year but I think it still holds up! I'm really all about summer clothes that evoke exotic and freeing places...

Anything tribal:

or Southwestern:

(I actually have this dress... can't wait to wear it once my legs are toned enough)

What kind of things are you hoping to live-in this summer?

I'm coveting tribal right now too.
Sadly my summer attire is more likely to be hospital slobbing gear; harem pants, jogging bottoms etc haha.

Im so jealous you went to Coachella - looked like so much fun! I love the tribal dresses you posted.. Im going totally gaga over all things tribal right now.

I'm with you, tribal it is. Of course, I'm going to have to wait awhile for summer seeing as winter has just begun (topsy-turvy seasons, I tell you).

Still, it gives me something to look forward to for coming summer.

And might I add that I freaking adore all the shots of you and of the ocean and the boats. That is my sort of heaven :)

Dusk is my favorite time at the beach! I need to score myself some new sundresses and maxis. I live in them all summer long. Love your picks!

This summer, I'm living in the nautical/white sort of thing. I don't really know, I'm having a difficult time finding things that I like! I have an easier time dressing in the winter than the summer.

I love aviators on you! I wish I could wear them.
