Happy Thursday morning everyone! hope all of you are doing well and having a great week! I have had some kind of stomach bug all day yesterday and I am still having issues. I was thinking I had the stomach flu or even food poisoning…but things got a little better. I hate when days like these pop up!
I had this post saved since we went to the beach and I actually forgot about it, so I was really happy to see I had a draft for today. I hope
Tired of fleeting trends and one-season wonders? Fill up your closet with the below pieces—they’re classic, transitional, and special enough to hold onto all year long. The staple pieces every girl will need to make it through summer and hopefully, build your wardrobe that can last not only through summer but Fall also!
Set your shades budget aside before summer. You know that these are a must-have, so no excuses there. You need a pair or two of Polaroid shades that protect you from UV rays as well. Especially, for someone who drives to work. Treat yourself to a couple of fancies or have cheaper ones as a backup if you want. All Sunglasses below are 40% off – Use Code: NEWNOW

Comfortable and casual shoes should be your “thing”. We all love boots and styling them with short dresses is fun, but they need to be put away unless you’re at a party with full-blown air conditioner. If you’re wearing closed footwear, ensure you dry them before next use. I personally look for shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits. A good pair of wedges, comfy sandals and a great pair of lower heels.
Summer bags are a must, and they are called so for a reason. You will need to stock up your bag a lot more than you otherwise would. Sunscreen, body mist, perfumes, etc. Plus the floral ones are so fun and refreshing. I am drawn to a great Summer bag and have picked out a few you girls may like below.
4. Hat Or Umbrella
Fedoras or not—Hats are a must. If you think they are too fancy, carry an umbrella. You carry and apply sunscreen, but considering the hot temperatures, it just doesn’t help. Hats for a beach vacation
1. Tank Tops
Tank tops go with anything and everything. You can wear them both indoor and outdoors. And, you can never have too many of them. Whether they are casual tanks, tanks that can be used as shapewear, or dressy camisoles- you will wear these and they will be
2. Yoga Pants/Athleisure Wear
When I say yoga pants, I mean comfortable cotton ones. Not the winter sweats. I spend most of my summer shopping and other activities in these. They are just smooth on the skin and wear so stinking good! Wearing clothes in itself seems like a herculean task in summer—let’s ease it out a little, please!! Whether it’s activewear for working out or lounging around the house binging on Netflix – these are must-haves and we all LOVE them!
For most of you, it goes without saying. It is an everyday essential. For some of you who shy away from wearing shorts, that’s ok!! Try the Bermuda shorts and see if that is more your style. I for one am starting to love the longer 10-inch shorts. See the post the inspired the picture above HERE.
4. Plain T-shirts
We are always cranky in summers and getting out is a big deal. And dressing up is a pain as you are clueless about clothing that is both comfy, yet colorful and stylish. For those of you who don’t want to make an effort to look for anything cute, this is all you will need. Wear them with culottes, shorts, trousers or just about anything. Get a pack of black and white each. They will come a long way.
**Lingerie and Intimates are always a staple piece, I am actually working on a blog for these – “How to Purchase Intimates That Won’t Hurt Your Wallet”. I am including some sleepwear in this one too!! Much research is needed for this post LOL! So it may be a
Special Mentions To a Trend I Am Seeing!!
Culottes or Split Skirts
These are trendy, chic and seamless. Summer looks are all about being effortless that do not compromise on style. Now, we are talking!! COMFORT!!! We discussed plain T-shirts a minute ago, remember? Yes, so team it up with these culottes. The options are limitless here. They come in printed, floral, plain, etc. However, choose prints that match your body type. You’re otherwise good to go with these! And you can always style a summer cardigan with these to conceal any issues you want to camouflage!
Maxi Dresses & Jumpsuits
Shopping for a summer outfit that is suitable for work? Also, looking for something that can just be casually worn on the weekend, To a bridal shower or a house party? The answer to everything and anything is a maxi dress. I can never get enough of these, and I get just as excited every time I wear one or shop for these. They are easy on the skin and with so many styles they are flattering on everyone. Suits any body type and occasion. What are we waiting for? Get a couple of them, if you have not already! And don’t forget, grab up a cute blazer to throw over a jumper or dress! Gives the outfit an entirely different look!!
