Rut, ugh how I hate that word, rut! Even reading it is slightly depressing. Yet, at the beginning of every summer I find myself in one. The heat takes over my fashion sense, for a brief moment, but still… it takes over! 94 degrees in Seattle, and wait before you judge me for saying that is insane but 99.9% of homes in Seattle have no air conditioning, I find myself sitting three fans pointing directly at me and drinking whatever is coldest in my fridge – Sauvignon Blanc, check! After about a week of ridiculous pouting and sweating my metaphorical you know what’s off I pick myself up and look for inspiration. I have come to love Lyst for just that. Not only does it let me save all the “I need you nows” but also the “I love you’s if only my wallet would let me love you’s **ah hem that amazing Fendi below**” – while notifying me if those I love you’s go on sale or the retail horror story “out of stocks” come back in stock. While saving everything my heart, and my closet desires, Lyst also learns my shopping habits. Basically it’s like going through my Facebook feed without having to hide the stories and people I don’t
like want to see on a regular basis and only showing me what I love. Not to mention Lyst has a universal checkout making checkout a breeze, say good-bye to multiple shopping carts. Below are some pieces that have gotten me out of my summer rut drought and given some much needed inspiration (think fringe, wide leg crops, vintage inspired jewels, and insane platforms). A few may or may not have made their way to my doorstep via a very lovely UPS man. You can find many more pieces I am coveting on my Lyst which I update almost daily (should I be embarrassed to admit that I am on there that much?) so be sure to follow me at Carascliche. I would love to follow ya’ll back to see what is inspiring you this summer! … and, of course, don’t forget to cash in on those 4th of July sales today!
You can find me on Lyst here.
