Kansas Couture Presents...

Since May is already here, a "spring must-haves" post seemed sort of like an after-thought, so here is my spring / summer warm-weather checklist. I used items from my own closet, so I wouldn't be tempted to buy anything new!

What do you love right now?

I see how you made the necklace now! I love how the ribbon makes it extra special! I'm gonna try that to make something fancy-looking for prom. :D

I think it's very clever of you to choose items you already own. In fact, I might draw some inspiration from that...
Right now I am very into sporty silhouettes from the 20s and 60s, in addition to actual sportswear from the 70s. I sorta feel like I will be very majorly vibing on Rollergirl all summer....

Ooo, love this post. Love how you used stuff from your closet! Right now I am REALLY into mixing patterns. It is just SO MUCH FUN. Also, I really want a romper. Because everyone else has one. I figure we could all jump of bridges together while wearing them.

Great post.. I'm enjoying mixing neutrals with pops of color.. And I'm still on the hunt for some nude wedges. I've also been thinking about making a necklace myself.. Great pics!!

The Daily Fashionista said...

Sundresses of all shapes and colors are on my wish list right now, right along with pretty sandals, pastel nail polish, and flowy colorful skirts:)

Caroline said...

I certainly agree with the polka dots, stripes, and florals! I love a good print. I'm also really liking headbands and embellished tops now a days...

Clothes Coquette said...

High waisted shorts & the little white dress are a must for my closet this summer! There is something about a white dress that just sums up summer; I love it :) Very cute clothes from your closet!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

I'm loving the funky sunglasses that always appear in the summer, and you cannot beat a good summery hat! I completely agree with the LWD and the lace...your blog is fantastic!

Sille said...

Our list are almost the same! I'm just not so big on jewelry so the clear necklace is not on mine, but other than that, completely the same. :D
Also love the idea of picking the must-haves from your own closet.

Laura said...

So perfectly on spot, and I can't get enough of nuetrals, white dresses, wedges, linen shorts and trousers and dresses, white lace worn in slightly unconventional manners and and so much more. =)

kodi_jo said...

I want high waisted shorts sooo bad!

dressdarling said...

Ahh, I love everything! And sadly I don't have most of it... I really really want some lace pieces.... and some wedges... and... sigh.

Come on summer job... I need that money

Just found your blog. I love it for two reasons. 1. You are excellent at putting together stylish and wearable outfits, and 2. I love seeing Lawrence in your pictures. I am leaving lawrence in two weeks, and i will miss it greatly

Darling L said...

Wedges, wedges, wedges!! And florals of course! :)

Dalena Vintage said...

Those shorts are great! I would easily wear them with that lace blouse tucked to show off the high-waist.

Keira said...

I love ALL of these things, too, plus lightweight spring scarves and white denim.

Zinnia Cress said...
