I can’t believe that August is already here! Well, even though summer’s already more than half way over, there’s still so much time left for fun days at the beach or pool & those hot summer nights! Now is the time to get the most wear out of your summer wardrobe or to add some great new items. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to look stylish & with so many summer sales going on, it’s exciting!
But what about those long weekend days when you always on the go or vacation time where you need your outfits to carry you from morning till night? I’ve put together my top 5 summer essentials that will take you through a long day of fun…from morning brunch to an afternoon on the beach & then a night out on the town.
Here are my 5 favorite summer essentials
1.) THE PRETTY SUNDRESS
Pretty floral print sundresses are great for summer as they will keep you cool in the hot weather and can also be dressed up or down depending on where you are going. Pair with flat sandals or flip flops by day or dress up with heels at night. Create an edgy or ultra-feminine look with the same dress by switching out your accessories.
This dress was something I wore recently on a hot & humid day in NYC and I really loved the soft florals & stripe details. (SHOP this post: DRESS- SIMILAR HERE & HERE )
Pink Floral Dress: This dress below is really affordable & I love the idea of dressing this up with a strappy sandal for night or dressing down with white sneaker or flat lace-up sandals by day.

2. THE WHITE TOP
Lacey off the shoulder tops have really become a universal favorite because they are so comfortable, flattering & on trend. A pretty white top will keep you cool & always looks great paired with denim shorts or a skirt for daytime or you can dress it up with skinny jeans and heels for night. This also can be a great layering look over your swimsuit for a more covered up look at the beach or pool.
White Eyelet Off The Shoulder Top: Nothing beats a pretty white top for a fun & feminine look. This top looks great paired with denim shorts or can be dressed up for night with gold accessories.

3. THE DENIM CUT-OFF SHORTS
Denim Shorts: this is one of my favorite denim brands right now & this is just such a cute & classic style that you can wear on repeat all summer long
4. THE ONE PIECE BATHING SUIT
Nude Ruffle One Piece: this is my favorite one piece bathing suit because you can just throw shorts, jeans or a skirt over it and head straight out to dinner after a day at the beach. It has such gorgeous and flattering styling with the one shoulder ruffle detail. Plus it’s Made in USA & currently on sale !
5. THE COOL SUNNIES
Cat Eye Sunglasses: I always seem to wear the same favorite pair of go-to clasic black sunnies, but sometimes it’s fun to change it up a bit, especially in summer. Why not try some fun mirrored lenses in a fun color or a cat eye shape? These are so fun & pretty & at a great price too.
What are your go-to items for the summer season?
