Default Yay!

Thanks to Meezer for suggesting this board, and thanks to Steph for creating it so quickly!!

So I guess I 'll start things rolling. What are your summer staples, must-haves, can't do-withouts?

Some of mine are
1) black leather thong sandals (sophisticated flip flops )
2) regular flip flop in neutral colors like white, navy, oilive , etc
3) good white T's, at least 3...I find white yellows quickly
4) skorts!!! I don't really like me in shorts, unless I am jogging, so these give me the best of both worlds, and they are easier to dress up a bit than regular shorts...I find them more comfy also
5) sunglasses, fashionable & sporty. i have a pair of good ones that look dressy, and my Oakleys for running, etc
4) a straw tote, goes with everything, nice & big

there's more, but the above are pretty important for me to have, they get me through the summer

OOOh, how could i forget skirts! loving the knee-length floaty ones...I have 3 now, but plan to get more if I see any that I really love. they look beautiful with T's or tanks and can be dressed up or down.

Oh awesome!! Board is up already...so cool

First of all-
wavebaby I love skorts!!

Secondly

-Flip flops that I was enabled to get by Wind. The boy hates them but they are so comfy and much better than sneakers.

-shorts. I need more as I only have a pair of olive green khaki's and a pair of jean shorts that I've had since 7th grade.

-lots of tank tops and cami's with built in bras. They are just so comfortable and cute and great for summer

-swim suit

-and although this isn't completely 'summer' since I need them to see- my eyeglasses. They are transition lenses so I need 'em for the sunglass effect.



*fake edit*
-hair sticks/forks/scroos/claws etc. I would die over the summer if I didn't have easy, quick ways to put up my hair. Long hair is too friggin' hot

I could probably live in huge t-shirts and panties for the summer... If I didn't have to leave home, that is. Not a lot of neighbors out here, so big t-shirts are fine for walking the dog, but not going into town.

So I'm into summer dresses instead! There's nothing more fun than walking around in a cute, comfy dress and a pair of sandals while everyone else is sweating in their t-shirts. Bwahahaha. Sorry guys, but shorts just can't top feeling the breeze under your skirt. :P

Other must-haves:

Bikini

Scrunchies! The hair, you know... Besides, I can make them to match my outfit.

A pair of jeans for forest walks.

My strappy awesome half-shoes-half-sandals with heels.

My leather coat. If nothing else, just to drive my mother insane.

Ribbons. For some reason, I have unlimited uses for ribbons during the summer. For my hair, as a belt, my water bottle...

1. tanks/halters

I wanted to try Bravissimo, they have built in underwire bras in their tanks, halters and tubes in your bra size.

2. I have one skort- but I would like more. Its perfect... a "mini skirt"/shorts

3. sandals with a 1 inch sole- casual

4. I don't have any shorts right- I have to get some. I also like overall shorts

5. sundresses, I'm also looking for these. I'm finiky when it comes to dresses, so I'm looking for some that fit my pesonality.

5. swimsuit: I have two bikini tops- underwire spaghetti strap halter and I like board shorts.

6. I too need sunglasses-

- Tees! Very important. I love the faux vintage ones, they're so thin and comfy.

- Laugh, but I wear jeans year round. I swear the flared ones act like mini aircons, if they're big.

- Flipflops. I have two pairs, brown RocketDog Reflex's, that enabled Enit and Peg, and a new pair of black Tevas. Can't live without them.

- A few kneelength cotton skirts.

- That's pretty much it.

Great thread topic!

Ok, my summer staples . . .

- tank tops with built in shelf bras (which I need more of since my current stock is a bit old and worn)
- wrap around skirt, perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit when I'm hanging out with friends
- a cute little summer dress
- a light coloured cotton skirt (which I need to go find somewhere)

I live in basically the same thing all year around. Summer is my least favorite season, btw...

Summer staples:
My suede Borne strappy sandals
Long sleeve black tee shirt
Short sleeve black tee shirt
Black tank top
My drab/olive green length-adjustable capris
My dark, long blue jeans

I'm pretty boring and I tend to stay inside once the temp starts rising.

Not a summer lover here either. Actually, that's not true, summer is fine, it's the heat & humidity that I hate. Autumn is my all time favourite, or "sweater weather" as I call it.

Summer (most hated season evar) staples:

Dress pants (lighter weight than jeans, I find)
Polos (work and play!)
My boots (for work... )
My ugly blank sandals everyone hates but me...
And anything that keeps my hair up!

Wait... that's my winter list too.. Well, minus the sandals...
