It's finally that time of year!  Summer's in the air and although it's supposed to be all about beaching it up, tanning, late nights, movies, and spending quality time with friends and family, I'm stuck working until I can get a week off for vacation.  I'm reminiscing on those childhood summers when I was able to say "I'm bored" every once in a while.  Seriously, that's a privilege to us grown (still growing, kinda) grownups.  Anyway, the connotation of summer is always supposed to be thrilling and I'm doing all I can to make it that way, even though that may not be the case.  One thing's for sure, it's fun to see all the new summer attire coming out in stores and compiling various cool and comfortable outfits.  I'm quite into orange, because it reminds me of sherbet, so I immediately fell in love with this button waisted skirt by MINKPINK.  It was super discounted and I knew it would pair well with my ombre teardrop necklace I had gotten ages ago.  Of course, I imagined to add a basic crop top (my 3 year long addiction).  I can't really see a black top with these pieces because that would be a little too Halloweenie for me.  Plus, with white, you can avoid some unnecessary heat.  Last but not least, get excited to accessorize and throw on some sweet shades.  Mine are not so out there, but the rims are floral and the tint is almost sepia, which totally wraps up the whole sunny summer look.  Since I'm trying to keep my summer as up to par as possible, I'm already eyeing July 4th, which is nearly around the corner.  I can't wait to style with schemes of red, white, and blue!  Americana, stay tuned!!

SPITFIRE Steampunk Flick Sunglasses

Steampunk Flick Sunglasses by SPITFIRE - Blue from Edge of Urge (get them here)
90's Crop Top - Black from ASOS (get it here)
Robertson High Waisted Denim Shorts - Laguna from Tobi (get them here)
Halfway Belt - Black Tobi (get it here)
What can I say about these shades? Um, FIERCE!  By far, these are my favorite eye protectors ever! I've always been searching for a pretty shade of reflective lenses, but all the ones I had always found were not the right shape, tacky, or not my style.  These lovelies by SPITFIRE (by the way, sick brand name, right?!) have made my summer, and it hasn't even officially begun yet!  I'm crazy about the blue, as well as being able to hide my eyes from passersby.  I feel a bit mysterious and like I'm one of those cool top spies or secret agents  in action movies.  Normally I don't favor round glasses, but these have definitely changed my perspective for the better!  Go check out Edge Of Urge, the chic online store where I found these; they have a ton of more fabulous finds!  As far as the outfit goes, I went for a classic cropped top and high waisted shorts look.  Here's to a summer full of unknown but crazy awesome adventures!!
