The Monday Blues are hitting me hard after a near-perfect weekend filled with gorgeous sunshine, wine tastings, pulled pork barbecue, and a visit from my best friend.
Even though J and I have more busy and fun-filled weekends ahead, our first “real” vacation of the summer is still six weeks away, and I’ve got a serious case of wanderlust. I’m coping with a little online window shopping and a Wardrobe Wishing: Vacation Edition. Enjoy!
Anchor Print Eyelet Dress – Vineyard Vines – $158.00
Anchors, eyelet, oh my! I love this little dress from Vineyard Vines. The classic style and colors make it feel really wearable, and I think it is a piece that would become a summer wardrobe favorite for years to come.
Libanona Fedora – Anthropologie – $48.00
My short hair makes ponytails and other summer hairstyles a no-go. Hats are critical at the beach to hide wet or wind-blown locks, and this pretty little fedora feels feminine and practical. I love the floral pattern, and I think the colors would mix well with a lot of my summer staples.
Toucan Sandals – Kate Spade New York – $250.00
Talk about wanderlust! These whimsical sandals would make even a day in the office feel like a vacation! These were just too fun to leave off the list, and don’t forget – we’re just wishing here.
Bandeau Bikini Top – Aerie – $14.99 (on sale + free shipping)
I usually play it pretty safe with colors and patterns, but I love the playfulness of this top. I have a pair of turquoise swim bottoms that I think would coordinate with this piece really well, and with a sale price + free shipping, this might just make it past the wishlist. As a bonus, Aerie is at the top of my list for fave companies right now because of their commitment to NOT Photoshopping the models in their marketing photos.

Captiva Tunic Cover-Up (Bright Navy Tusk in Sun) – Lilly Pulitzer – $118.00
I talked about my love for all things “elephant” themed in my last Wardrobe Wishlist, so this fun Lilly tunic should come as no surprise. I love the coverage on the arms (sometimes a fair-skinned girl has had enough sun.) Although I would never pay this much for a cover-up, I’ll definitely be on the look-out for a less expensive copycat style.
What do you think? Would you wear any of these pieces? Help me battle my wanderlust – where are you headed on vacation this summer?
Have a great week! xx
