10 Things I’m Wearing This Summer

It’s officially summer! I shop seasonally so I’ve updated my summer wardrobe with a couple of pieces that really evoke the cool, relaxed, carefree summer days I aspire to have! Here are ten things I’m wearing this summer.

1. One Shoulder Tops

Just add jeans, and I’m ready for summer rooftop drinks!

Stylekeepers Chiffon Memory Lane Top, $99

2. Mom Jeans

The high rise on this silhouette makes it super easy to wear with crop tops.

And Other Stories Mom Denim, $85

3. White Sandals

To go perfectly with white toes.

Steven Greece Sandals, $80

4. Net/Straw Bag

2018 can’t decide if the “it” bag is a straw bag or a net bag, so I got one that checks off both boxes.

Sensi Studio Straw Bucket Bag, $216

5. Triangle Sunglasses

Obsessed with cheap sunglasses and these make me feel like paparazzi is trailing me.

SunglassUP Sunglasses, $10

And Other Stories Cotton Shirt Dress, Steven Greece Slides, Herschel Fanny Pack

6. Oversized Shirtdress

Cotton. One piece. Works for every single occasion possible. Done and done.

And Other Stories Cotton Shirt Dress, $55 $39 (on sale)

7. Fanny Pack

Worn around your waist, across your chest, or around your shoulder, the fanny pack/belt bag is the best travel/beach/festival/I need both hands to carry two margaritas summer accessory.

Herschel Supply Co Fifteen Belt Bag, $30

8. White Metal Rimmed Glasses

Although I have a lot of stylish eyeglasses, I’ve found myself being drawn to these white ones more and more as the weather warms up. It’s funny because I wore my tortoise shell almost exclusively all winter and now I’m all about the white metal!

Kam Dhillon Macpherson, $95

9. Visor

I haven’t bought one yet, but Refinery29 recently did a piece on straw visors and I realized they were the hat accessory my closet was missing. Sun protection without having to figure out how to get my fro to lay flat? TAKE ALL MY MONEY.

Creatures of Comfort Natural Cartwheel Hat, $144

10. Polka Dot Two Piece

My obsession with dots, swimwear edition.

And Other Stories Dot Print Top & Bottom, $29-60

StyleKeepers Top, And Other Stories Mom Jeans, Steve Madden Greece Slides, Sensi Studio Net Bag

  1. Soooo… rent, bills and Pull-ups are taking all our money LOL so I’m trying to stick to what I have while hitting up the thrift shop if I really wanna change up. I’m in dire need of some nice white summer flats to replace my faves I got from Zara many moons ago. Aside from that, maxi dresses and skirts are my jam and I want a straw bag.

  2. I just ordered two straw hats from Free People and a straw bag for a good price. I have some high waisted jeans but I got to get the abs just a little smaller. I had gotten it down some but I want it smaller.
