Hey Lovebugs, I know that this lookbook is heaps old, but sometimes when I'm feeling un-summery, as I am on this gloomy New England Friday, I find myself looking to Wildfox for inspiration. They remind me of everything happy. Popsicles, bright nail polish, friends, pools and pizza. What else is more inspiring than that? What's your favvie summer inspiration?

Luv Aj

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 17 comments
You all know by now that I'm a sucker for creative, thick metal-work jewelry.  I'm in Luv with Luv Aj jewelry (Bad pun, I know) "Luv Aj Designer Amanda Thomas started her accessories line in 2005 once her after-school obsession parlayed into her own line of accessories. The 23 year old designer still continues to combine a worn and torn edginess with a hint of femininity in her line of jewelry, that ranges from bodychains to handpieces and everything in between." I love that her designs maintain a really tough chic look with feminine elegance. She is the emblem of the designer that I aspire to be one day. Here's some of my favourite pieces.

Somedays Lovin'

"It's a small ripple, an undercurrent of worn and arid beauty. It is as effortless but as sentimental as a thread bare, twisted friendship band." It's the clean and simple smell of the ocean air, with the strength of the undertow. Somedays Lovin' - it's everything that embodies summer. I can sense the inspiration from the elements in their clothes. Their designs seem to move with the wind and float with the ocean. Such simple, yet elegant designs that I'm totally obsessing. Check out some images from their Spring lookbook below.

Bullet Crystals

I am so in love with these Bullet Crystals from 'Torchlight.' As recently new brand, their only current stockists are Planet Blue, Free People, and sugarhigh + lovestoned (that I just recently did a post on). I'm hoping they get their own boutique started up soon because they definitely deserve it. Each bullet crystal symbolizes a different zodiac and spirit guardian - theoretically, each crystal is uniquely loyal to the wearer. Regardless of whether you believe or follow the zodiac, they are still heaps awesome. Here's a few images from their lookbook, and a few of my favvies.

Hello, summer brights. These Christopher Kane bags are actually from his 2006 collection, but in my opinion, summer brights will never go out of style. Perfect summer accessory.
