visual notes

Visual notes/thoughts on clothes/looks/styles for summer.  AKA my thoughts on getting dressed these days.  Also a wish-list of sorts

(I scanned, but I’m not sure from where, sorry) great basics for summer – simple shapes, light colors.  Looks great.  The bottom could be pants, shorts or a skirt and it would be equally as wonderful.

(again I scanned this from a French magazine, but I’m not sure which one) A more complicated summer look – the blazer is definitely too much for where I live, but still cute. I’m closer to embracing athletic apparel in non-athletic situations, but it’s been slow.

(from ShopBop.com’s lookbook) very nice and simple.  Ever since I saw Coco avant Chanel I’ve been searching for a great striped shirt.  This one from Rag & Bone on Shopbop.com is $115 – more than I’d like to spend on a basic piece like that.  Pretty, though.  Shorts are great too.

(from Style.com) 3.1 Phillip Lim 2010 resort – I looooooove the jacket, and the skirt, and the shirt… ok, I just love.

(also from Style.com) Jenni Kayne resort 2010 – great colors and a great way to toughen up a sweet little dress/skirt.  I’m not sure how I feel about the lack of collar on the jacket, but I definitely like the general idea.

It’s nice to dream, but mostly it’s too hot to wear anything interesting.  My first concern is not melting and the second is looking good, and the third is not freezing in air conditioning.  Oh well, soon it will be winter and I’ll be wishing it were summer…
