Sure, I make do in winter, spring and fall. I do love colorful leggings, plaid peacoats, and pretty boots. I love skinny jeans, rainbow scarves, and the occasional winter hat, but summer fashion is my jam. It’s shocking that I live in New England, because if it were up to me, I would only own a straw hat, sunglasses, and pretty summer must-haves. Those are some of my must-haves.
A Straw Hat and Summer Fashion Must-Haves:
These are important because they can help protect your skin from the sun’s rays, and also help you look great! Wear them to a beach, picnic, party, or just because! This is often the finishing touch of my favorite outfits! Tenth Street Hats has over 275 styles to choose from! I stumbled upon them looking for a hat for Cassidy for Father’s Day. There’s still time! Plus, get one for YOU!
A tote to carry it all.
This one is perfect for summer. I need a bag that’s large with lots of space to pack books, drinks, snacks, and the essentials for summer – like phone, wallet, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc. Which brings me to..
A perfect pair of sunglasses.
So not only will sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun, but if you find a pair that is ideal for your face shape, you’re going to be styling! And I have three pairs I love!
I always have to have at least one perfect pair of jean shorts. I like to partner them with a flouncy tunic or a t-shirt and Converse sneakers. This is such a cute and casual look for me.
A t-shirt dress.
So I have about five of these. They are so perfect for day to day life, and also dessert or drinks out with friends. They help keep you cool and elegant.
I don’t think you can go wrong with these. They’re super cool and comfy, and can pair with jeans, pains, skirts, dresses, etc. You can get them in lots of colors, or just black!
A jean jacket.
Literally my favorite item of clothing EVER. They’re essential. Everyone needs at least one, and I have at least seven. What can I say? I still wear the one I loved most in college, holes in the elbows and all. Plus, they’re perfect for beach nights and cool summer nights when the daytime’s heat has lifted.
It’s so versatile! You can pair it with everything. A jean jacket (see above) and black pants, or even with a colorful skirt or dress. It’s a staple!
Summer maxi dresses.
Did I say jean jackets were my favorite clothing item? I think we all know by now that summer dresses are my favorite items of clothing. I was never big on skirts or shorts. See, I have strange proportions – like that I’m slim but have hips – and I have a really high waist. Things can look silly on me. Dresses never do. And you can get them for all body types, all sizes, all colors, all everything! Here’s one of my favorites.
I have a whole drawer of sandals. I like some for a little height, but most of them have some sort of fun or tribal pattern and just make me HAPPY! The best feeling is bare feet on warm sand, but sandals and flip flops provide happiness too. And all of it makes for happy feet!
