Five Friday

Like I said in my last post, the Five Friday Facts are donezo....sort of.  Instead I'm just going to stick with five things, varying in subject content, for the remainder of my Fridays....until I get bored and need to do something else.


I WANT...more maxi-dresses. I never really liked this look until this spring. I'm quite short so I always thought these looked so bizarre on me, but I have two so far that I bought recently and now I love this look. I know H&M and Forever21 have some budget-friendly maxis, so I really need to go and take a look soon! 

I wedges. I already have a great pair of brown wedges (posted in this OOTD) but I need a black pair. I don't want patent or even leather, it needs to have a very small peep top or no peep toe at all, and I'm looking for a pair with the natural cork or tan wedge, not an all black wedge. If this makes sense to you, and you know where to find such a pair, FILL ME IN! I'd seriously go and buy them tomorrow if someone could tell me where these bad boys are!

I WANT...a wide-brimmed hat. I have a wool one from winter but I'd really like another for summer in a lighter weight. I don't want the typical big, super floppy hat that seems to always be in when it's time to hit the beach, but a more structured version that feels slightly seventies. I love my summer fedoras, but with the 70s trend coming back, I really want a hat like this.

I WANT...feathers in my hair! I am a teacher (in case this is your first time reading my blog) so the feather look wouldn't fly over too well during the school year but now that we're so close to the finish line, and my sister's salon is getting these in any day now, I'm stoked to add these to my summer "wardrobe." I think I'll just go with the natural-looking color and maybe add them on both sides but more so underneath my hair so they peak out every so often. Do you have these, do you love them? Are they easy to style/manage?

I WANT...John Lennon sunnies. For the fact that I will probably be kicking myself next summer when I look back on photos from this summer coming up for wearing these bad boys, I still want them. Also for the same fact about kicking myself, I don't want to spend the $150 it is for Ray-Ban's spot-on version of these, so does anyone know where a simple look-a-like pair is that isn't in the three-digit price range? I should just look on e-bay and see if anyone else has decided they need to sell theirs because they look crazy, but I still love love love them!

So there you have it, my five friday : summer edition! Looking at the collection of them in the photo above, it looks like if I paired all my summer wants together, I'd have one rocking seventies outfit! hah

What are some things you are dying for this summer, even if they are not fashion related? Let me know!
