Today, we are talking summer wardrobe essentials! The month of June officially marks the start of the glorious summer months full of sun and sand, cocktails by the water, and BBQs around the pool. It is such a fun season to shop for! We look forward to the happy and vibrant colors, showing off that tan with a fun sundress, and the sandals, oh the sandals… Sharing our six must have pieces for your summer closets in today’s post!
Summer Wardrobe Essentials
First on our summer wardrobe essentials list is a maxi dress. Each summer season, we recommend that our clients purchase a fresh maxi dress. This is such a versatile piece that is not only pretty on. It’s also comfortable and cool during hot weather. A maxi can be worn casually with flip flops. Dress it up a bit with sandals and some fun earrings, or go all out with wedges and statement jewelry.
In terms of packing for a trip, the maxi dress is a great way to get a lot of bang for your suitcase space buck! Bonus is a good maxi dress can double as a cover up for a lunch by the beach. If you are petite and want to keep your maxi dress longer for wearing with heels, you can tie it about halfway up your shin on the side to make it shorter for flat sandals.

A good slide sandal is a must have for summer days by the pool, beach, or lake. Here are a few of our favorite slide sandals that also feature some of Summer’s hottest trends. Just give us all the puff, clear plastic, raffia, and embellishment!
A kimono continues to be just a closet staple for us year after year. Wear with cutoffs, jeans, or a denim skirt. Layer over a sunback dress to cover your shoulders in the AC. Wear to add pops of color with a jumpsuit, and they even work great as a cover up!
Lightweight Tote Bag
For the summer, lightweight totes that carry a bunch of stuff are the way to go. The really good news: you can look super cute and haul all.the.things at once! Here are a couple of our favorites for summer.
