The 75+ degree weather in NYC this weekend had us shopping for one thing: shorts! In fun colors, prints, and silhouettes, trendy shorts are majorly in for summer. So swap your sun dresses and skirts for these stylish picks from Akira, all under $100:

aztec-neon-nail-art_thumb.jpgEtsy is where we turn for unique handmade jewelry, clothing, and home wares, but now we’ve discovered something else amazing on the site: nail art. These hand painted fake nails by CompulsiveNails are one-of-a-kind and come with nail glue and application instructions. There are so many funky options, we can’t pick our favorite - head over to the Etsy shop to see them all.

Pink and Blue Neon Tribal Fake nails, $25

Pink and Blue Paisley Fake Nails, $17

If there’s one accessory you’re allowed to be truly playful with at all times, it’s your umbrella. After all - if you’re going out in the rain, you might as well have some fun! These bright options from Australian line Gina & May are the perfect alternative to boring black rain gear, with eye catching graphic prints and color combinations. Founder Gina Pollock launched the line in 2009 with her mother as the solution to her troubles finding an umbrella that was both stylish and durable. Some of our favorites are already sold out, but you can still shop some fabulous umbrella styles online at, with prices ranging from about $35 to $65.
Maybe it was the Kentucky Derby, but we’re putting a chic wide brimmed hat on our fashion to do list this season. We love the ladylike, retro vibe these hats bring, and of course they also provide the essential function of shielding your face from harmful UV rays. This 70s-inspired wavy style is ultra glamorous and perfect for pairing with a classy daytime dress or sleek wide legged pants.

Nude and neon are a match made in fashion heaven - they contrast each other in a way that is just perfect. When we spotted these shorts by Laugh Cry Repeat (brought to you by the designers behind Anzevino & Florence) at Revolve, we immediately started planning all the ways we could wear them. A slouchy tee and chunky platform sandals by day (throw on a blazer if needed), and a silk tank with stiletto pumps by night. These are definitely a summer style must-have.
