Ahhh, Sweet Summer!

Today, I'm linking up with Katy of Modly Chic to answer the question: What are five summer trends you're looking forward to wearing this summer?  

You know, I absolutely love summer time. The heat, the sunshine, the beach, the picnics, running through the sprinkler with my Little Guy. If I could move somewhere where it's perpetually summer, I totally would.  My style isn't super trendy. I'm not one to follow a trend (especially if it's a risky one!) right away. I'm not even sure if I know what the summer trends of 2011 are! So, I'm just going to give you my own five "trends" I'm excited about rocking this summer!

1.  Color Blocked Nail Polish
Awesome nails by oomph

How awesome are her nails?!? She always has something cool going on with her nails! But this color blocking in similar shades? I love it and I can't wait to rock it this summer!

2. Sandals

I love a good flat sandal. They're dressier than flip flops (and an added bonus, they don't make the flip-flop noise!), they cute and it's almost like going barefooted.

3. Sundresses
Or even sundresses and sandals, as pictured here! =)

4. Coral & Turquoise . . . Together!

I didn't document it, but the other day, I wore my coral dress, with my turquoise cardigan. And I loved it! I looked a little bit like Rainbow Brite with the brightness and all, but I still loved it. It had a summery feel to it.

5. Linen dresses

Like the one I'm wearing today! =)

Dress & Bracelet: Target
Sandals: My sister's
Belt: Thrifted

What are you looking forward to wearing this summer?

Another score with a GORGEOUS dress! I really like how you gave it a more "casual-dressy" feel with the low-slung braided belt and embellished sandals.
Geez...I would copy this look in a hot sec if I only had that dress....hint hint...

Oh! And I love those red sandals you have going on in that third pic!

HMM, I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU ON ALL COUNTS!!! Love the linen dress! I don't own a one, but am planning on changing that really soon. And turquoise and coral are my favorite summer colors!!

My favourite thing about the warmer weather is sandals - I hate having my feet cooped up all winter!

Great post :)

Very cute. I do love coral and turqoise as well. I am also loving orange with a pale icy blue!
