Screen Shot 2017-03-22 at 6.51.56 PM We are now past spring break, which means we are in the home stretch of the semester. While we still have Fling and finals coming up, summer is fast approaching. If you are anything like me, one of the best ways to procrastinate all of your midterms, internship applications and other responsibilities is online shopping for the upcoming season. Here are some of my favorite pieces for the summer below that include this season’s great trends.

1. 7 for All Mankind Chambray Dress ($199) – I love summer dresses and I love denim. Chambray dresses are a great way to get a cool denim look, while still being lightweight for the summer months.

2. Le Spec Sunglasses (£75) – I think that retro style sunglasses are SO in right now. These sunglasses are a great way to break away from the usual sunglass styles (i.e. aviators, wayfarers) but still rock a classic style. Jackie O would be proud.

3. Joie Sandals ($158) – These sandals are the perfect staple for summer because they  literally can go with any outfit. You can dress them up with a cute sundress (maybe the Free People one below) or even rock them with shorts and a t-shirt; the options are limitless.

4. Free People Dress ($180) – This dress hits every style for summer: light, airy fabric, embroidery, and a shift silhouette. This dress can travel with you wherever you are going. From working in New York to hitting the beach, it is extremely versatile.

5. JADEtribe Tote ($143) – There is no other time of the year other than the few, short summer months where it is acceptable to carry a straw bag. Straw bags are great because even when you have to be stuck in the office, you can still give off beachy vibes. I love this one because of the pops of color given by the tassels.

6. Miansai Bracelete ($6,700) – Because most of the summer you are wearing short sleeves, it’s a great time to wear bracelets because they won’t be covered by anything. I love the industrial feel of this bracelet, but the metals make it more girly and softens the look.

7. Parker shorts ($198) – Cotton shorts are summer’s answer to joggers in the cooler months; they are super comfy and it feels like you are wearing pajamas, but you still look effortlessly cool. I love the color and print of these shorts. They would look amazing with a basic white tee, but add some funky necklaces to take the look to the next level.

8. Hipanema Bracelets ($60) – I love this collection of bracelets because it reminds me of an updated version of the friendship bracelets that my friends and I used to make at summer camp. They are still the same printed, colorful bracelet but more sophisticated and stylish.

9. Vanessa Mooney Earrings  ($45)- OBSESSED. In case you can’t tell from the multitude of tassel items on here, I love tassels for summer. There is something about them that scream fun and warm weather and outdoor parties. I love these earrings for a few reasons: they are keeping with the trend of statement earrings, they are a great color, and they are tassels. Honestly, what isn’t there to love?

10. Minimale Animale Swimsuit ($220) – I truly believe that the classic bikini is taking a backseat to the one piece this summer. Everyone is ditching their two piece swimsuits for the amazing one pieces that so many designers are offering this summer season. I really like this one because it has a great flattering neckline as well as a super interesting back that is sexy, without being too revealing.
