How do we relieve ourselves from the horrid thought that "Summer's almost over" when August comes? We shop! OK, to be a little more specific, we shop for sensible items that are perfect for that final BBQ or wedding, and also have staying power in our wardrobes through Fall. This month, we got excited by gorgeous going-out heels that'll look good with a long-sleeved minidress later, bags that come in interesting silhouettes and beautiful shades, and some staples that just remind each of us of our own signature looks.
In August, we're going for designs that are infused with plenty of personality, because there's no better time to enjoy making a statement. Whether you use this wish list to discover new brands or fall in love with pieces from some of your favorite retailers (did you see that blue satin headband from Zara? We bet Disney Princess Belle would approve!), we think you'll find at least one look you simply can't run away from. So go grab your credit card, make plans with friends for the weekends ahead, and get ready to snap some Instagram-worthy shots of your new It items for your feed. Now is never too late.
