Summer inspiration board + soundtrack

As recommended by the lovely Hope, I cured some summer boredom by creating a summer inspo board with my Elles, Vogues, Rivieras, and random magazine cutouts that were lying uselessly in a box. It definitely kept me occupied, and I rekindled my love for making collages!
This collage is actually four-pronged, with different "themes" at each of the corners. 

Top Left was inspired by vintage swimwear and retro beach looks. I love the contrast of classic b&w with punchy brights.
Top Right was a nod to a crisp, clean palette that always comes to mind when I feel a cool breeze sifting through my curtains. The Calvin Klein ad was fantastic and I just had to pair it with some other dazzling white pieces. 
Lower Right was inspired by the tropical heat of summer! I think the focal piece of the section were the Tabitha Simmons sneakers (via Neiman Marcus spring catalogue-OOH they're on sale too!). A perfectly preppy shoe (note, stripes, single tie, boat shoe style, woven rope platform), this pair is definitely going on my wishlist. 
Lower Left was inspired by dainty and demure pieces. Karlie looks fabulous in her well-tailored cropped jacket and dress, no? The chained bow bag is adorable as well, and I couldn't resist putting some macarons there too. (PS amazing Reed Krakoff tote peeking at the right, it is PERFECT, perfect I tell you.)

Aaaannnd a couple of tracks
