Summer Essentials


With summer quickly approaching, there are a few things that I always have to have for the warm months.  They are pieces that I reuse every summer and love to update as each one comes around.  Something I love about these pieces is that they mean something different to each person.  Here I have listed just a few of my summer essentials, and a few options for you to build your summer wardrobe.

1. Denim Shorts - Just about the most worn bottom during the summer, these come in all different styles including cutoffs, bermuda, and high waisted.  I feel that it's super important to find a pair that suit your body and that you can go to at anytime to wear.  I personally love the cutoffs for the beach, bermudas for school, and high waisted for going out with friends!
