Summer Wardrobe Staples

It's only a few days from the official start of summer! Can you believe it? I have been re-organizing my closet and put together a few staple items I'm excited to wear all summer long. I like to ear mark have a few pieces that I know I feel confident and that work for a number of occasions. That way I have outfits ready to go with items I already own if we plan any last minute dinners out or even weekend getaways. It also helps limit compulsive shopping...haha. 

I've put together a few outfits involving a bright bag, statement earrings, skinny jeans, white top, interesting tee, shorts, sandals, and of course some beach items. I hope these help inspire you to create some summer outfits!

Here I used jeans, sandals and statement earrings again. To make it into a new outfit I switched to a flutter sleeve top and a fun bag that is easy to use as a cross body.

Here is the same sandals, the white top and bag from the first outfit, and some fun printed Lilly shorts. Even though almost all the pieces are the same it looks like such a different outfit, don't you think?

Lilly Pulitzer Bathing Suit

Finally, these are my beach staples. I love this Lilly Pulitzer swim suit, it is so comfortable and flattering! Plus a hat (have to wear a hat in south Florida), SPF 50 and some older sandals

What are your summer staples? Any pieces I need to get?

J.Crew Factory Striped Waffle Knit Sweatshirt

Last Thursday I shared some of my favorite new items for summer, which included the J.Crew Factory Striped waffle funnelneck sweatshirt. This weekend we lazed about inside and by the pool for the first time in a long time, and it was the perfect opportunity to dress in cozy summer clothes. I don't know about you, but I love wearing loungewear that still makes me feel put together. There's nothing like feeling polished and super comfortable!

This sweatshirt is super soft and comfy. I wore it on a plane and a long drive and felt cozy and comfortable. In addition, it's lightweight while still being warm, which is perfect for summer. I think of it was warm enough for chilly AC and lightweight enough for early summer temps.

The fit is definitely on the looser side, so if you like your sweatshirts fitted I would size down. The pocket is lined, which I think is a nice touch, and the neck is big enough that it doesn't wipe off all your makeup when you put it on (does anyone else have this problem with sweatshirts that they repeatedly take on and off?)

Finally, the new Peach Pear La Croix flavor that I'm drinking is delicious! Do you have a favorite summer sweatshirt? Or any La Croix recommendations? I'm all ears!

Baublebar Flower Earrings

I recently purchased the new Baublebar Flower earrings, the Amariella Flower Stud Earrings to be exact, and I love them! I think they add the perfect amount of drama and fun to a simple outfit. I’m also impressed with the quality. The earrings feel well made, but are surprisingly light. I wore them all day Saturday and didn’t find them at all heavy or annoying.

I bought the J.Crew Factory Tie-waist shirt and I’m so happy with the way it fits. The tie in the front makes it more fun than a traditional oxford, and since it’s made to tie it doesn’t lay strangely in the front or back. I’m excited to wear it with printed shirts and jeans all spring and summer long.

Jack Rogers sandals

I finished the ensemble with my trusty Jack Rogers. They just launched nude sandals and I’m so excited! Plus, the Blush Lauren sandals that sold out so fast last year are back in stock! 

The Breakers

My parents were in town so we all went to the Breakers for Cocktails at the Seafood Bar. It was a lovely day with a slight breeze and clear skies and small waves. The resort is one of our favorite places to relax at for a day on the weekend. The grounds are so pretty to walk through, and the courtyard is a beautiful place to sit and drink coffee.

The interior is gorgeous as well, the flowers smell divine!
