Shopping Obsessions: Summer Must Haves

Summer is officially here in Texas regardless of what the calendar says.  Yesterday, I spent the day with friends and we were struggling to keep cool in the humidity and at one point had mutliple empty water bottles as we made a pit stop for more water!
Max Studio (available only in the UK)
It's no surprise that I want this dresses. This summer, I've been obsessed with different shades of Orange and Blue.  From Tangerine and Cobalt here to Coral and Turquoise here, I can't seem to get enough! This Max Studio one in Chiffon just looks cool and chic, not to mention, it's a Maxi dress and I practically live in those during the summer. 
The Webster for Target
I also just received this Maxi from Target, this dress and the outfit in the headline photo are from The Webster Miami at The Shops at Target.  This is the first time that I really feel like they didn't bungle the collaboration.  I was at Target with Morgan a few weeks ago and I saw this dress, but it was too small. I went online on the off chance that there was more product online and amazingly, they not only still have product, they also carried a petite line! I love my dress and I can't wait to wear it out soon so I can show you!
Trina Turk for Banana Republic
Lastly, I am loving turquoise this summer.  I've been wearing my L.K. Bennett Wedges (seen here) non-stop and I just received the shipping notification that my Trina Turk by Banana Republic bag has shipped and I couldn't be more excited.  I knew I wanted a small clutch because I just carry more stuff when I have a bigger bag.  I was originally going to wait for the Anna Dello Russo x H&M collaboration in the fall to pick one of those clutches up, but when Trina Turk and Banana Republic teamed up to create this one, I was sold! In my opinion, Banana Republic definitely has a leg up on H&M or Target as far as longevity goes.  When I saw the gorgeous lining of the inside of this clutch, I loved the print.  Wendy, Khatu, Jean, and Kelly have all reviewed other pieces of the collection and I want Kelly's Zazzy Zebra skirt! Plus, most of the line is available online in petite sizing!
