Friend Friday: Summer Trends

Some things I'm looking forward to this summer...
  • Trips to the beach
  • Warm weather
  • County fairs
  • Hearing the ice cream truck
  • Longer days
  • Summer movies
  • Comic-con
  • Watching So You Think You Can Dance (Anyone watching this season? All the contestants are so freaking talented.)
Another thing I like about summer, getting to try out some new trends. This also happens to be this weeks Friend Friday topic. 

Without further are my picks for this summer:

Summer Trends: Coral

Coral is such a vibrant and playful color that pairs so well with neutral colors. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect coral nail polish.

Summer Trends: Braids

So braids isn't exactly a new trend, but it's such a great way to change up your hair without resorting to cutting it. This is also a great way to get soft beachy waves sans curling iron, which along with my blow dryer, I'm not going to use as much this summer.

Summer Trends: Lace

I love how in the past few seasons lace has been in all different price points. I also feel that adding lace makes an outfit a little more fancier.

Summer Trends: Wood Heels

Perfect for the maxi-dresses and midi skirts this season. The studier heel also makes those long summer walks more bearable.

Summer Trends: Vintage Inspired Swimwear

Summer Trends: Vintage Inspired Swimwear by Somedaysmarter featuring a retro swimwear

I am not the string bikini girl at all. I like to be more covered up, so I'm excited that there vintage styles like these out in the market. Proof that you can still look glamorous even in a one-piece. Plus, isn't the swim cap adorable?

What are your favorite summer trends? Also, head over to ModlyChic to see what trends my fellow FBFF bloggers will be trying out this summer.
