Summer just isn’t complete without the perfect pair of sandals! I always gravitate toward a pair that can be easily dressed up with a cute sun dress or dressed down with a staple pair of denim shorts! Of course you can never have enough pairs, some of my favorites can be found here, here & here!
My summer staple is a classic bikini that stays put. I spend a lot of time at my family’s river house during the summer and the water is pretty murky so light colored bathing suits tend to get dingy after a while. That’s why I tend to gravitate toward black bathing suits for the river! Also I’m a big kid and like to play around in the water so having a bathing suit that won’t fall down when I jump in or stand up is essential. Now that I have a wee one, this feature is even more important since I’ll be carrying her around in it and definitely don’t want anything popping out!!
1) A humongous floppy hat. This accessory is so perfect to throw on when you’re racing out the door. Take the hat with you on any summer vacation, to the pool, or on your lake weekend. Or, perhaps spice up your usual running errands look and add the hat in lieu of your messy bun. As a plus, it covers your face to prevent wrinkles!
2) Something with fringe. Fringe is everywhere this season and will definitely be staying for summer. I think fringe is so playful and adds just the right amount of something special to a basic outfit.
We loved collaborating with Chloe and couldn’t agree more with her picks! Now we want to hear from you! What are some of your summer staples?
