Generally speaking, summer isn't my favorite season anymore. Up until I graduated from college, I thought it was, but I now realize that it was because I didn't have to go to school. While I prefer fall weather and activities, the thing that I do look forward to this time of year is shopping for summer clothes, shoes, and accessories. So let's do that.
I think the general consensus in life is that summer is the most exciting season to shop for. Summer trends are typically more relaxed, colorful, and fun. And I always find that affordable, trendy fashion items abound during summer. To prove it, I found a bunch that I'd buy in a second to punch up all of my basics, as those are what make up the majority of my summer outfits. Scroll to shop my favorite trend-forward findings, most of which are less than $100.
