A Tartelette’s Lust List

With the temps creeping into the 80s (wooo-hooo, finally!), it’s about time to start doing the new season shuffle. Bye-bye, boots and scarves! Why, hi, short-shorts and bikinis! If you’re at a loss as to what’s hot for well…the hot, I have compiled a list of warm-weather wonders that’s sure to get your sartorial heart-rate pumping!

TOMS Tie-dye Classic Canvas Slip-on
Popular with fashionistas and hipsters alike, TOMS is a shoe brand that turns shopping into service. For each pair of shoes purchased, the company donates a pair to a child in need. Buh-bye, shoppers remorse! I am in L-O-V-E with this green tie-dye style!

Juicy Couture Enamel Heart bracelet
I am a jewelry fiend and fanatic. Therefore, the moment my peepers caught this deliciously chunky jewel with its offbeat color palette of neutrals and bright greens, it was love. I’m not usually a fan of heart motifs, but this little piece had me singing Stacy Q’s 80s hit “Two of hearts, two hearts that beat as one!” G&P, you girls have done it again!

tarte eyeshadow set—eyeQuatic
They say eight glasses of H20 is the secret to glowing skin. I say tarte’s eyeQuatic set is the true key to a flawless face. Its hues of blue, gold and violet will give lids that perfect splash of summer chic. As we’ve already established my deep devotion to Lights, Camera, Lashes…it only seems right that I’ll fall just as hard for its water-proof cousin- Lights, Camera, Splashes! And how recessional chic is the bonus Missoni-esque scarf! Jump in, chicsters, the water feels great!

Longchamp “Le Pliage” Tote Bag
Though I got a little Longchamp-ed out during my four years in college, there is something about this classic French brand that resonates style. I’m rejecting the classroom-variety colors (red, navy, black) and going for the green. This kiwi color will act as a fun pop of color for casual summer looks. I’m so into this little Longchamp, I’ve already planned what I’ll be piling into it. The newest Emergen-c flavor- PomCran- for a mid-day boost, my beloved Spring Greening kit- I am literally obsessed with the flirty eye hues and the hilarious Like I Give a Frock, a book of “Fashion forecasts and meaningless misguidance.”

So, tartelettes, turn up Big Willie Style’s “Summertime” and get ready for some haute stylings!

Oh Amelia, I feel so chic - I already have the Kiwi Longchamp. And I adore it. The green is absolutely perfect for Summer. Definitely lust-worthy. I'll be adding 'Like I Give a Frock' to my summer reading list...
