Summer '13 Style

I love Polyvore, and I was all about it on my last blog The Anchor Drops.  
I've been finding some great deals on my lunch breaks at work and I had to put something together.  A little prep, a little boho, a little nautical. That's pretty much DC in a nutshell in terms of fashion.  

Do you feel like there is a different style for summer?  Everyone relaxes a bit and lets their hair down...maybe not in DC because of the humidity, but you get the point! 
I feel like my own personal style has changed rapidly in the last year.  Last summer I was strictly preppy and all about the crew (J.Crew of course).  I went to Denmark for 5 months and came back with a suitcase full of black clothes.  I was the new, chic European Hilary.  Countless people asked me who died, which didn't offend me that much.  I was expecting that.  I was known for my outfits that were so colorful they could be spotted across campus.  And for a brief period of time my favorite clothes were only those that were black.  Black clothing still has a special place in my heart.  My friend Julia who also studied abroad in Copenhagen would come to class discussing how Danish we looked.  

Danish no more, I'm loving this seasons colors.  The rich shades of green, blue, and red are awesome this summer and I'm loving the tribal prints. I also love the 'keds' trend.  A new H&M will open in Union Station this month and I'm excited to snag a pair or two for the price of $12.  
Check out my polyvore page & my [closet] on Pinterest.  

How has your style changed as you've gotten older? 
 Do you stick with trends or wear what you're most comfortable in?
What are you most looking forward to wearing this summer?
