Store I Love: Planet Blue

Nothing says summer like easy breezy tanks, teeny tiny shorts and layers of piled on bangles, and nowhere will you find such essentially staple pieces as consistently as California's Planet Blue.

I'm sure you've seen your favourite fashionable celebs toting around the store's brightly-hued lime bags (Ashley Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgens, Brittany Snow and Kate Hudson are but a handful of its famous customers) and have more than likely lusted after one of their trademark Blu Moon Almost Famous Skirts or Blue Life Bare Belly Tanks! But did you know that Planet Blue doesn't only sell pieces from its signature line? You can also count on them stocking Jen's Pirate Booty Tube Tops and Tunics, unique, bold necklaces, rings and bangles from Soixante Neuf and Kenny Guadalajara Shorts, to name but a few. 

The following are the top five pieces I'd name as my favourite from the store if someone were in front of me, scissors in hand, threatening to cut up my credit card if I didn't answer them which I loved best. Really though, I just want everything Planet Blue stocks.

Piece 1: The Blu Moon Almost Famous Skirt

I have this skirt and absolutely love it. I basically live in it, honestly. It's so comfortable and no matter what you wear on top, be it a baggy tee or cropped Jen's Pirate Booty Cha Cha Tube Top a la Vanessa Hudgens above, you're bound to look amazing. And, well, almost famous.  Oh, and it comes in a variety of patterns and colours to suit every girls' tastes. How can you not buy it?

Piece 2: Goddis Zip-Up Hooded Poncho

It would be nice if every day all summer long were beautiful outside, all sunny and warm, but unfortunately, that probably won't happen. Don't let that get you down though, simply purchase this Zip-Up Hooded Poncho by Goddis and snuggle up with someone by the campfire! I love this sweater's neutral colouring and comfy, oversized fit. Perfect for cutoffs (like Siwy's Camilla Shorts below) and a pair of well worn leather booties. 

Piece 3: Blu Moon Summer Lovin' Dress

The Summer Lovin' Dress by Blu Moon has been spotted on Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Whitney Port and, as shown above, Brittany snow. Described by Planet Blue as a "feminine frock sure to bring about a summer of love," this dress is playfully sexy with its flirty frills and low cut back, and depending on the print you get, can be sweet (Ditzy Purple Floral), rocker-esque (Python) or tribally trendy (Black and White Motif). Style it with a leather bomber and chunky black heels like Brittany for a night out.

Piece 4: Single Chain Feather Earring

I love feathers, and purple is my favourite colour. Throw your hair in a somewhat messy top-knot, put these in your ears and voila! Instant hippie-chic. 

Piece 5: Siwy Camilla Shorts

Cut-offs are key for summer; all you need is them, a bikini and a cute floppy hat and you're ready for just about anything. Siwy's Camilla version is amazing- they sit a little higher in the back so your bum remains covered, and their pocket positioning is super flattering. I plan on living in these all summer long.
