One of the things that I really want, and which I'm using as an incentive to study and work hard and not collapse into a wibbling pile of sobbing student is neutral/brown-ish sandals. Yes, I know. Standard staple. For everyone but me, I think. I don't believe I've ever owned a pair, but they look marvelous, and they fit with my whole 'making an effort to wear something other than black' thing. The one I've been failing miserably at, since even my sundresses are black. (No, seriously, they are - they have floral patterns, but they're black, and I barely have anything colorful, though all the colors I do have are super-bright).
I know, not entirely neutral, but I can't resist some bright stuff with brown. I need to have something familiar with it, right? I think my favorite of these is probably the Alexander Wang sandals, but I'm equally certain that I can't afford them, alas. I'm definitely using some pair of sandals as a finals reward, though, because I honestly need the motivation.
Are you significantly lacking in any serious summer staples? Got a wardrobe kick like my basically all-black one? Ready to learn to murder abstract concepts like finals and economics like I am? (Yay finals...) Lemme know (especially if you want to learn how to kill abstract concepts or know how, because I think I need that before Monday, when my econ final is... I'll survive. Maybe.)
