shorts, yes! ..last summer i wore city shorts but this summer i think i will add some with a more slouchy feel. i just got some which are knee-long and beige. they fit pretty much like men's shorts and have pleats on the front .. i think it'd look awesome with an oversized t, flat sandals .. i'm also thinking more dresses and less skirts. i'd love more dresses with pockets in my wardrobe.

the colors that i will be wearing mostly i think will be more neutral ones .. white, cream, light grey. but also purple, pink and yellow will be tossed into the mix. i think i'm going to be big on stripes + polka dots this summer as well. i really haven't seen many printed things i like.

going to use my flat sandals from last summer though i'd like some new ones as well. btw, they're going to be golden, but i suppose that is nothing new. i still love my moccasins and ballet flats.

accesories-wise i'm going to be carrying large leather bags and i'll still be using hairbands i'm going to tone down with the necklaces though. i have a long thin gold chain that i think i'll be wearing with all sort of charms, etc i think i've grown tired of the more chunky necklaces.

and that's it i think.

Headbands and SHORTS! Some slouchy shorts though as Mettchen mentioned. Hopefully paired with some open toe flats or gladiator sandals!

Mettchen, you're spot on with the large leather bag.. I need to find one! Something so summer chic to me - a perfect bag filled with sunglasses, chapstick, sunscreen, and summer reading

And for spring- I would like a patterened umbrella and a light trench (i don't care if they are 'in' or not- i love them!)

PS- great topic softgrey!

I'm all in for shorts as well, slouchy, city I don't care :p as long as they have pockets. I'll probably pair them with any kinds of shirts with pattern and blouses. I'll try wearing more skirts, also with pockets. :p A waistcoat in cream or light grey would be nice as well...
And I want a light trench and I want to add a few cropped jackets too my wardrobe.

I'm not sure about the colours, but I think that I'll be wearing a lot of curry colored, pruple, white, cream, grey and black. Also I want something in brocade...

I'll be using the flats I have from last year, I still like them very much. I am going to invest in some heels, especielly some open toed ones... Well I would love some open toed flats as well, like the Louboutin´s for Derek Lam (ss 06).

Silver and gold bags are it for me. But I probably should get a nice leather one as well... Uhh and hairbands hairbands hairbands . scarfs I'll be wearing more scarfs, especially some with print and motives... And sunglasses of course.

I'll probably add more later...

I'm starting to like slouchy/classy shorts, I just don't know how to wear them. What kind of a person should not wear them?

My must buys are a good leather jacket, ballet flats and trousers.

For spring and summer, everything is eased up and slouchy. I like natural fibers, very soft and drapey.

I've laid in a supply of skirts and dresses, like several cotton sundresses with empire waists that I plan to wear with ballet flats or Birkenstocks in the summer. In the spring, though, I'll be wearing dresses/ skirts with boots, and then switching over to lighter footwear in the summer. Shorts are okay, but vintage. Let's bypass the Britney-era shorty shorts and go for a retro feel.

I may add other ideas later as they come to me.

sounds good, everybody

i'm really looking forward to this season...

my main color palette will be black, grey, cream, white, light pink, pretty shades of purples...

definately going to have shorts, of any kind really, but i must get slouchy shorts. maybe even denim shorts that i can roll up to be just above my knee...saw it on Natasha Poly and i'm hoping i can pull it off

not much...my summer wardrobe is pretty basic. White t-shirts, a pair of dark denims, and maybe i'll get a summer blazer in a more lightweight fabric.

i got some open toe flats from urban outfitters...since i don't wear flats alot, i didn't want to spend a ton on them



i'll also be wearing:
-knee length slim shorts
-bubble skirts
-ruffled shirts
-lots of dresses
-skinny pants
-thicker heeled sandals (not necessarily platforms)

color wise, i'll be doing sand/tan, white, black, navy, light blue, grays, and maybe some pale pinks...

I've been eyeing Acne's S/S 06 line for a while now and finally decided to pick up these two pieces, assuming my bank acct can handle it:

Heraldic Jacket


Mod Dalmation jeans
