Wednesday Want: Madewell Cargo Camo Shorts

I feel that now the temperatures have dropped (again) and the April showers have started here in Oregon, I’m channelling what I’d love to have in my Summer closet via my “Wednesday Want” section. These Madewell camo shorts, for instance, I’d probably wear them every other weekend as they go with just about all my Summer tops. I’d especially pair them with a striped tee and my Converse for a more tomboy vibe.

Student Discounts

School will be starting up here soon for most colleges, and as the first day gets closer there’ll be more people out shopping. The great thing for college students is that a decent amount of stores give student discounts. I’m honestly so glad I found out about these before I visited the Topshop store in L.A. as it helped me save a TON of money along with the summer sale that was going on.

Also, here’s some great “Girl Code” advice that we all need to remember. How we dress is a reflection of ourselves, so why let other people dictate how we look? Love this show!

Chambray Love

Chambray has always been a huge Summer staple. It’s coloring and light fabric makes it extremely versatile to where you can pair it with basically any type of bottom. I love though how some companies and brands have also turned this top fabric and used it for bottoms. The dresses and skirts that came out of the scenario are just as versatile as the tops along with being just as cute! Also, taking the ol’ chambray shirt and using the fabric for a print or for an eyelet top makes this fabric easily suitable for all lovely people.

New Twist on Baseball Tees

As June is rolling in, Summer is also just starting to get that much closer. Summer, for me, has always meant root beer floats, watermelon, trips to the beach and baseball. I’ve been loving the new twist companies have been putting on baseball and raglan tees. Now, you can buy the top in your team’s colors and look fashionable while supporting them at the ballpark. Plus, on the days you don’t attend games, a baseball tee can easily be paired with shorts, light colored jeans, or a maxi skirt.

Below are a few of my current favorites!
