Summer Shopping List

Summer Shopping List | Sophster-Toaster Blog

Aerie swimsuit \\ Tarte eyeshadow palette \\ ModCloth skirt \\ Lime Crime semi-permanent hair colour \\ ModCloth shorts \\ ModCloth pajamas \\ ModCloth sandals \\ Rosehound Apparel top

I feel like my wardrobe is missing several key pieces this season. Last summer, I lived in old clothes that were sacrificed to new puppy nipping, pulling, jumping and playing. I didn’t buy anything new because I didn’t know when I would be able to have nice things again without fear that my new furry friend would destroy them. Now that she’s all grown up and doesn’t see shoes as tasty snacks and flowy hemlines as tug toys, I can wear whatever I want… but oh no! I have nothing to wear.

I won’t be able to pick up every item on my summer shopping list, but here are the fun and beautiful warm weather things I’ll certainly be choosing from.
