Fashion PR Girl April Shopping Guide

PR Girl Essentials

Oh April, how you fooled me into thinking things might be just a smidge slower than the frenetic pace of early 2014. Not so! This month is absolutely confusing because it’s apparently July outside (thank you San Diego), I’m looking at some serious globe-trotting (hello, I’m going to hang out with some mini-ponies in a private Italian villa for Chrissakes), from now until September, and I have a Big Birthday coming up in exactly 2 months to prepare (mentally, party-ally) for. No wonder my picks for this month have a decidedly playful, dare I say vacation-y vibe. What’s on your wish list for this month?

2. “I’m a grown ass lady” print, Emily McDowell, $32
3. Singles by Future Islands (Can’t stop listening to Seasons)
