This is what I am GAGA for this month.
August means one thing totally different to everybody. &
For some, it marks the beginning of a brand new faculty yr. For others, it is simply one other month of summer time. For me, it is someplace in between.
My August, like the remainder of my summer time, has been spent doing a mixture of job purposes and chillaxing. & However this month, issues have began to get actual, as they are saying. I am shifting to New York Metropolis subsequent month, so my apartment-shopping and job-interviewing processes have begun. And so, as normal, August has been a month that precedes an enormous transition.
However August has additionally been a lot enjoyable.& I've spent a lot of time with family and friends, made main progress in my re-read of the complete Harry Potter collection, and on the finish of the month I'll see Woman Gaga stay (eeeeeee!!!).
Appropriately, my faves and wishlist this month reveal a stability of labor and play, summer time and fall. However I feel I might love them any time of the yr.
The songs of the summer time
August means it's formally time to determine which tune is worthy of the title "music of the summer time." &
My picks typically do not line up with these of critics or leisure blogs, which is sensible as a result of there hasn't been a beyond-obvious track of the summer time in years (in different phrases, the subsequent "California Gurls" or "Name Me Perhaps" has but to return alongside). For a similar cause, I additionally are likely to have two or three songs of the summer time, perhaps even one for each month.
My private decide for track of the summer time 2017 needs to be "Fort on the Hill" by Ed Sheeran. It checks the packing containers on all the key song-of-the-summer standards: a rousing hook, a summery, windows-down vibe that makes it good for blasting on street journeys, and copious radio play.&
And for this current school grad, a track a few time& "when we did not know the answers" rings so true.&
My runner-up needs to be "Physique Like a Again Street," by Sam Hunt.& It is a catchy nation tune that's good for summer time, evocative of lengthy drives and heat afternoons. Like "Citadel on the Hill," it is made for belting with your folks.
Lastly, my decide for under-appreciated music of the summer time is "We Like It" by Pc Video games (a band made up of Darren Criss and his brother). Their single "Every Single Night" is extra in style and in addition upbeat, enjoyable, and summery, however this monitor speaks to me extra.
"We Like It" makes use of the basic song-of-the-summer ploy of truly together with the phrase "summer time" within the lyrics, and is all about having enjoyable and having fun with life. Like each Killers or Kings of Leon track ever, its lyrics do not actually make any sense however nonetheless are someway poetic and resonate simply the identical.
Olympia Le-Tan's Fall/Winter 2017 "Psycho" Assortment
Technically, I have been utterly obsessive about Olympia Le-Tan's new Hitchcock-themed assortment since I noticed the lookbook again in March. However now that the gathering is on the market online, I can respect each bit much more.
As you guys might know when you learn my posts obsessing over Bates Motel, this assortment is 100% up my alley. The basic, Hitchcock-heroine-inspired clothes (just like the one above) are so merely lovely and seem like they'd be so empowering to put on. Similar for the blazers& and oh, the jumpsuit (*swoon*). &
And do not even get me began concerning the bomber jacket with the "Psycho" emblem beaded on the again. Suffice it to say I've a serious designer crush.
Goal grey plaid bomber jacket
IMHO,& this plaid bomber is the most effective factor I've ever seen at Goal (it is also available in plus sizes). It is so me& -- there's even a little bit of my favourite colour, purple, within the plaid! I used to be thrilled to get my arms on it (for simply $40), and I plan on sporting it in all places this fall. &
This jacket is ideal for work with tailor-made shorts or black pants, and fab for informal days with denims. I am even interested by throwing it on over a slipdress.&
Kate Spade earrings
These chic earrings are each classically refined and completely fashionable. I really like every thing about them, from the outsized pearl to the quirky-yet-on-trend velvet bow to the hit of sparkle. & They will be the of entirety to each work look--now all I want is the job.
Goal pink embroidered mules
One other superb discover from one of our favorite stores for fashion on a budget! These satin& mules (which additionally are available black and a fab yellow shade) look so trendy however are simply $35.& I've to admit -- I truly clicked "order" whereas engaged on this submit. #Sorrynotsorry.
I can not wait to fashion these with my beloved boyfriend denims, and I additionally need to attempt them with A-line clothes. And with Daisy Dukes? So Leandra Medine.
Like last month, I assumed I might finish this month's wishlist with a splurge by which I in all probability will not be indulging, as a result of hey, a woman can dream. &
I've gushed about Present/Elliott's boyfriend denims before (they match me like a glove). This straight-leg pair& appears as cozy as it's fashionable. The uneven hem and floral aspect panels are so recent.
I guess these infants are additionally far more versatile than they appear at first look. The floral print is a reasonably muted shade, so choices for tops, jackets, and print-mixing experiments are countless.&
Shoe-wise, these can be nice with ankle boots, mules, sneakers, ballet flats, heels...principally something in my closet.
