Confession: I joined the trendy high-waisted mom-jean shorts club.
During the Summer, I hate wearing tight pants. Truth be told, I hate wearing tight pants in general. So you could probably predict why Summer is one of my favorite season’s (AKA “no ‘pants’ party”). On most summer days you’ll see me in some form of this outfit. I’m quite a sucker for a constructed jacket (especially this ASOS one from my Birthday Wishlist), they take a simple outfit up a notch making it look like you put more thought into it even if you did just roll out of bed and throw the first thing you saw on. Also, in the Summer, denim shorts are a must. I couldn’t tell you how often I wear them if I tried, I consider them lifesaving summer essential. Yes, I said lifesaving; because who knows when you’re going to need some red denim shorts to wave down mercy to a bull. Always be prepared my friends.

With my birthday less than one week away my parents and siblings are bombarding me with questions about what they should get me (apparently I’m difficult to shop for, who knew?). I’ve compiled this list from items I’ve had my eye on for some time, want to try, and need to expand in my collection. I even kept in mind my father’s cluelessness in the shopping department, and sister’s adoration for anything in the environment of makeup. I tried to keep it relatively decent in the price range, but some of these could be considered a minor splurge (which, if you ask me, is what a birthday is all about!). While I’d love a new dress or pant’s suit, and a matching hat to wear for my birthday dinner, I also would be just as happy with a few dainty heartfelt pieces too. After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?
