Summer Staples That Never Go Out Of Style

Summer Staples That Never Go Out of Style

Summer outfits are some of my favorite to style. That are so fun and easy, and the same key pieces can be relied on season after season. I love knowing I can purchase a few classic pieces and look fresh and stylish while walking around in the summer sun every season. Plus, it’s so easy to be bright when you don’t have to put a coat over your favorite top! I also feel like timeless summer staples are so much more attainable than winter clothes - the perfect summer sandal that’s been in style since the 60’s (Jack Rogers Palm Beach sandals!) are so much more affordable than the classic riding boot…anyone else agree?

I always reach for whites, navy, and pops of color. With a statement earring of course! I think of it as a vintage prep ascetic. Here are all of my summer favorites that you can wear season after season, because they never go out of style -

  1. Classic “dress-up dress” - Gal Meets Glam and on sale!!

  2. White jean jacket

  3. A striped 3/4 top for breezy nights or days by the ocean

  4. Comfortable shorts you can wear all day every day

  5. A flattering striped top

  6. A fun coverup that looks good with all of your swim suits

  7. Fun statement earrings that add a lot of personality to any outfit

  8. A swimsuit that you feel like a million bucks in

  9. The classic summer sandal

  10. An easy sundress that is super comfortable in the heat and appropriate for all occasions

What are you wardrobe staples?


Give Me All The Ruffles

Lilly Pulitzer Skort

The second I saw this ruffled skort I knew I needed to add it to my summer wardrobe. The wrap around ruffle and the pink seersucker make me feel like a ballerina. Plus, I love that the skort looks a little dressier than plain shorts but is just as easy and convenient to walk around town in. Just add in sneakers and a white top and you are good to go all day, from day to night!

I put it to the test on Memorial Day, and walked all around D.C. and scooted around to the Arlington Cemetery. The Lyft scooters are so fun! You use the Lyft app to rent scooters, and then zip all around. The National Mall is the perfect place to use them too; the roads are smooth and wide, and there is so much to see along the way!

Before the monuments and the scooters we started the day off at our favorite breakfast place, Maison Kayser. We first went to Maison Kayser when we were in Paris on our honeymoon, and it is just as delicious in the states! I highly, highly recommend the baguette with jam and butter. So simple and so delicious! If you are in NYC they have a few locations there, and they have two in Washington D.C., including one by the National Mall.

Tee / Tank / Skort / Sneakers / Sunglasses / Backpack

How cute is the fact that there is a ramp for the ducks to get into the fountain by the National Sculpture Garden?!! I paired the skort with both this lace ruffled tank and my go to tee. I loved the tank, but once we started scooting around I wanted my shoulders covered so I put on a t-shirt. I also wore my trusty Supergas - these have been my go to sneakers for years! They are so comfortable and cute! Even Kate Middleton agrees ; )

Are you excited about ruffles too? I didn’t used to like them, but this year I can’t get enough!
