10 Summer Wardrobe Staples

Happy first day of summer, y’all! Summer is the best for so many reasons, one of them being that it’s by far the easiest season to dress for. Any given outfit really only requires a few key pieces. For instance, a pretty sundress + gladiator sandals + sunnies = blammo, instant perfection! What could be simpler? Here are 10 wardrobe staples that will make getting dressed a total breeze all summer long.

 

1. A little white dress, the summertime version of the LBD. Preferably a lacy one!

2. Nude wedge sandals go with literally everything and make your legs look a million miles long.

 

3. A killer sun hat will instantly put you in a summer state of mind.

4. Breathable linen shorts are a no-brainer.

 

5. An off-the-shoulder top, because I’m pretty sure it’s the law this season.

6. A stylish beach tote to hold all your summer essentials.

7. Giant, glamorous sunglasses. The bigger the better.

 

8. Super sexy white jeans (just don’t leave home without a Tide stick).

9. Some classic espadrilles. I love this striped pair!

 

10. A maxi dress that you can wear everywhere from the beach to the bar.

I’m still in search of the perfect LWD. What are your go-to pieces this summer?

May Wish List

Man, this year is flying by! May is already upon us, which is basically pre-summer. Or at least that’s how I like to think of it. I’m currently planning my wardrobe for my imaginary summer vacation to the Amalfi Coast. The dress code I’m envisioning is white sundresses, off-the-shoulder tops, sexy sandals, and the biggest, most glamorous sunglasses I can find. It’s going to be the best imaginary vacation ever! Meanwhile, back in reality, I’ll be dressing up in my vacation outfit and heading to the Italian restaurant down the street to sip wine on the patio.

I especially love #3, which is basically a lip gloss in a cocktail shaker. And I’m completely head over heels for those red sandals! What’s on your wish list right now? More importantly, where would you go on your imaginary vacation?

April Wish List

Who else is overjoyed that spring is finally here? We had temps in the 70s in Seattle this weekend, and for a hot minute it almost felt like summer. It was glorious. I’m so excited to dump my winter clothes into storage and start wearing lighter, brighter colors again. Dressing for warm weather is just so much more fun!

I’ve been living in my lightweight army jacket lately, and the drapey version above offers a cool feminine twist on the classic. Other than that, I’m craving blush pink everything…I’m also a bit of a candle hoarder, so I’m looking forward to bringing out my springtime candles. Diptyque’s Figuier really embodies the freshness of the season. Sniff one and you’ll see!

What’s on your wish list these days?

March Wish List

Guys, spring is so close I can practically taste it. The sun has been peeking out for a little bit longer here and there, and I’ve even dared to venture outside without a coat. Yep, I’m a daredevil. I just can’t wait for warmer temperatures and the cute outfits that come with it! I’m daydreaming of slouchy stripes, leopard accents, and pops of pink. Oh, and plenty of fresh flowers, of course!

I’m also super excited to try out Emily Schuman’s new collection of Formula X nail polish. All the colors look perfect for spring! What about you? What’s on your wish list this month?
