Vacances de printemps






[Gap Body sweater, vintage tennis skirt, Nine West flats, Raybans, XXI beanie]

Super casual outfits for the past few days, heh. Early preparation for Spring Break! Which officially begins today! Hopefully the weather will be sunny enough to get some beach time in, I have reached a new level of pasty paleness this winter.

Summer Must Haves:
1) pastel colored bikini
2) tangerine or hot pink lipstick
3) monster wedges
4)perfectly tousled hair (wrap up your straightener/blow dryer until fall! They are awful for your hair, and summer is all about casual romantic waves). Also, clip in colored extensions. They're like $3 at Hot Topic, in a veritable rainbow of colors!
5) Sky blue or lavender nail polish
6) fresh face: no makeup except mascara (Sephora's lash stretcher is the best), and adding lipstick at night. 
7) oversized straw clutches


8) breezy sweaters and tunics in nude and/or white
9) the ubiquitous Alexander Wang cat eye glasses

10) oversized Moleskin notebook to carry on airplanes, pen notes in at art galleries, doodle in on the beach, and sketch in at coffee shops (because summer is all about doing these things! And Moleskin is so chic)
