My Summer Must-Haves

With the official start of summer only days away, I’m starting to finalize my summer wardrobe.  I like to keep my look easy, fresh, and low-key for the warmer months– sometimes the heat makes it hard to put effort into an outfit!  By building up my wardrobe with lightweight mix-and-match separates that all work together, I don’t have to deal with the hassle of getting dressed.  I just grab & go!  Here’s what I’m stocking up on:

Silk printed shorts.

Silk shorts literally feel like pajamas- no further explanation needed!  I’ll grab a bunch of printed pairs to give my outfits a little intrigue.

 

Simple flowy tanks.

These tanks will go with everything.  Of course I’ll wear them with my silk printed shorts, but they’ll also pair well with maxi skirts, jeans, or even tuxedo pants for a night out.  They become business appropriate when I throw a blazer on top!

 

Chunky heeled sandals.

I’m not a flats girl, and I never will be- even in the summer!  I’ll look for chunkier sandals with ankle straps for extra support.  Neutrals are best, but I’ll pick out a few statement pairs as well to keep things fresh.

 

Layers of long necklaces.

Boho layering is perfect for summer, and I’ll add this bohemian element to my wardrobe in the form of long necklaces.  I’m all for mixing metals, so I’ll have a few on hand in both silver and gold.  If I’m wearing a simple outfit, I’ll pile every necklace I have on top!  If my look is print-heavy, though, I’ll stick to just a few.

 

What are your summer staples?
