Summer Style Round Up
My Favorite Style Pieces for Summer
I’m a big believer in less is more. I’m very drawn to the concept of a capsule wardrobe and investing in key pieces that will carry your wardrobe game super far. Sounds dreamy, right? While I am far from having a perfect capsule wardrobe, or having it all figured out, I have recently invested in a few pieces that are changing the game for me.
I’m a big believer of KEY pieces that can be worn
a million different ways in all the seasons.
Whenever I think of investing in key pieces, I think of well-made basics that can be interchanged and worn lots of different ways. I want something that I can dress up AND dress down, because I am pretty casual 90% of the time. My go-to store that never disappoints is Madewell. They GET denim and fit. These pieces cost more than similar looks you may find at chapter stores (let’s say Old Navy or Target), but the quality is not even comparable. So if it’s not in your budget to invest in pieces yet, Old Navy and Target are great places to find a similar look. However, if you want to play the long game, it’s totally worth it to invest in pieces that will fit better and last longer.
So what are my go-to must haves for this summer season? Let’s start with some great basics! You can scroll down below to shop each piece.
Overalls: These skinny overalls can be dressed up and will carry you through ALL the seasons. I love wearing mine with a fitted tank top and a big ole pair of fun earrings. They look super cute with a fun tennis shoe or a great flat sandal. I’ve tied a sweater around the waist to help with crazy chilly A/C that some places choose to blast.
Perfect White Button Up: I haven’t stopped wearing this button up since I’ve gotten it. It is perfect paired with shorts and sandals or shorts and wedges to dress it up. It’s super cute with layered gold jewelry or big fun earrings. The tie waist is everything and is so flattering.
Great Pair of Denim Shorts : A great pair of denim shorts can go SO far. I have no shame in saying I loved these because I love the way they make my butt look. And you know what? That’s pretty darn important when investing in some shorts. These shorts feel perfect from the sturdiness of the denim, to the rise of the zipper, and the color of the wash. They pair perfectly with a white t-shirt and sandals, or heels and a fun top. They’ve been my most favorite summer staple in our southern heat wave.
The Perfect Green Jacket: Okay, maybe this doesn’t scream SUMMER, but it is perfect layering piece for chilly summer nights and it exudes the perfect laid back vibe. The color let’s you pair with black, brown, gray, navy, and really any other color in-between. It’s also a perfect capsule piece for fall, winter, and spring. The piece that keep’s giving through all the seasons.
Mules : Man, I wasn’t able to get these and I can’t stop thinking about them. They can be dressed up, dressed down, and GUYS, they are insanely comfortable. The leather is super soft and smooth and you can just tell this shoe will fit to your foot and will be with you for the long haul.
Perfect Sandals: These sandals are also on my wishlist. They look amazing with sun dresses, shorts, pants, pretty much any outfit. Again, the leather is super nice and these are shoes that will get better with time.
