Spring/Summer Fashion Inspo


It's just about that time to trade in my leather and fur for flip flops and shorts! I must say I do prefer fall and winter fashion over spring and summer, but I do have a spot in my heart for light chiffons, pastels and high waisted shorts. I haven't had a chance to do any spring shopping yet but I do intend to go this week to a few of my fave stores, Zara, H & M and American Apparel for a few key items on my wish list.

Here are a few trends I am LOVING this season and I intend on purchasing soon. All the items are very inexpensive and perfect for everyone. I will do a blog post this week of all the specific items I want from the websites to purchase directly as well. I'll also blog about my recent purchases soon too as I did end up getting the Celine phantom croc luggage tote, which I am MADLY in love with and Celine has now offically stolen my heart. Possibly a pair of Marant sneakers too... You'll just have to wait and see ;)


First item on my wish list! Floral jeans. I absolutely adore floral jeans and that will definitely be my first spring purchase.



High waisted shorts. My absolute favorite trend for spring/summer! I definitely want to purchase a few different pairs, casual and dressy.

Absolutely in love with this look

.

Hot off the run way... Yesssssss

Seriously though. wow

Casual and floral. Perfect


Leather shorts. Another item every fashionista should have in their wardrobe!




Pleated chiffon skirts.
I love the how feminine and versatile these skirts are! You can dress them up or down. The light pastel colors are stunning. I've seen them online at american apparel but i'm not sure of the quality.

pleated skirt paired with a crop top? Perfection
I tried on the cutest pleated skirt last year at h & m and I regretted not purchasing it then. I went back to get it a week later and it was gone. Just my luck lol so this year, it's a definite must. 



Pleated chiffon skirt paired with a cute crop top is the perfect summer look! I can't wait to rock something similar

Love!
Dressy, pleated maxi skirt. Perfection. The native fox kills it every time.



Crop tops! I want one in every style and color.
 
I love this look minus the studs. I love studs but not on jean shorts for some reason.



Minus these sandals and cross body bag.
I need to replicate this look.

Rompers/Jumpsuit/Playsuit. An essential for me. I have a few from last year that I wore way too much lol Rompers are perfect for a casual, effortless look. You don't have to put any thought into what to pair it with lol and I would rock it with sandals or heels.


Cameron Diaz(far left) KILLED this look!!

I can't even describe how much I love this entire look lol


Long sleeve is perfect for spring, or summer nights.






Summer dresses! Flirty, fun and adorable.






Love this style.


Blouses & Shorts. No description needed!



Sequin shorts. Need!



Jean shorts. A classic and a definite must have. I do have a few pairs from last year I wear often (siwy and J brand) but I'm absolutely loving the vintage high waisted Levi's. I'm not sure where to find them in stores but I did find a store on Ebay that carries them. Let's hope they look good on me lol I remember my mom used to live in hers and they looked AMAZING.

In love with these two.

Adorable and casual. Love this with my new white converse's


Perfection

Yesssss
Sexy

Casual


And last but not least, Maxi dresses. Casual and chic.


American Apparel always has the cutest and simple maxi's. I'll problably get a few there this year.



Amazing. I need this in my life

Dressy





That's about it for my favorite, must have spring/summer looks! I hope you will find this helpful and inspire you for your own wardrobe this season. I will blog about the items I purchase from this list and where I bought them from as well.


Love Nicole
