Summer Essentials to Add to Your Cart Today!

Summer is here and the summer shopping is in full force! Nothing like a heat wave to remind you that what you wear in the summertime is essential to being comfy and having fun this summer! So I’m doing a complete roundup of my summer clothing essentials for women! I love summer outfits, the prints, bright colors, accessories, I just think summer is so fun, so I thought it was the perfect time to share all my favorites right now!

Flowy Dresses

Flowy midi, maxi & short dresses are summertime essentials for me! I love having a few different ones – solids and prints and different lengths all available to wear at all times! They’re so easy to dress up and dress down. Solids are great to wear with kimonos and layers and prints are so easy for a full outfit in one easy piece!

Woven Sandals

Woven, braided sandals are everywhere right now! I can’t do the super flat bottom sandals so these from Urban Outfitters have been my absolute favs so far this summer! Great support and my feet don’t slide around in them! But there are so many options in all kinds of price ranges!

The boho girl in me loves a good kimono so kimonos are some of my favorite things year around, but I also really love them in the summer too! They’re great to throw on over a super simple solid maxi dress but they’re also great to throw on over a swimsuit and cutoffs for the pool. I’m all about an elevated pool look & the kimono totally gives you that!

Y’all I’m serious about my sun protection and since I’m so fair skinned I don’t take any chances in the summer time. You’ll always find me in some kind of a hat in the summertime! Right now I’m loving this straw visor and my fav howdy honey trucker hat – it goes perfectly with a solid black swimsuit!

Cutoffs are always a summer staple for me. Target’s Wild Fable brand always has some great options for a great price point but I also really love the Agolde Parker cutoffs for a splurge pair. I’m going to try out a few new pairs this summer so I can update this post with all my current favorites!

Oversized Tops & Bike Shorts

I honestly really never thought I’d become a bike shorts gal but I’m loving them! I love how easy they are for running around and styled with an oversized tee (my fav) they’re actually so cute. I’ve been wearing my trucker hats with them a lot and am really loving the dressed down 90s vibe!

Fun Cowboy Boots

I NEVER thought I’d recommend boots as a summer staple item but I have been wearing mine nonstop. They’re so cute with dresses and cutoffs and they’re honestly such a fun change up from the everyday sandal! I’ve been loving mine with cute summer dresses!
