summer wardrobe essentials

I keep a very structured supply in my summer wardrobe arsenal. A dark pair of comfortable shorts that can easily be dressed up on summer nights are a must. These Vince Drop Yoke Jogging Shorts look super comfortable but could take you to a trendy restaurant in the evenings when paired with a flowly blouse or structured blazer. On the flip side, does this Madewell Sleeveless Shirtdress not look like something you could completely live in all summer long? And while we're discussing striped pieces, I can't live without a good striped tank that can be thrown over a pair shorts or tucked into a pretty skirt. Last on the summer clothing front, white denim shorts. Must I say more?

This Gorjana Vista Necklace is what layered jewelry is made of. Plus, it's already layered for you, so you don't have to get super creative to pull off that trendy look. A nice pair of nude heels is a must for me in the summer. They can take you from weddings to work, and even matched with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans at lunch. These Sam Edelman Almira Lace Up Sandals are seriously gorgeous and fit the bill quite well. A statement necklace is also something that gets a ton of wear by me in the summer. It can transform a simple dress into a work of art. This Kenneth Jay Lane Agate Necklace is calling my name.

98% of the time in the summer, I'm wearing flip flops. Nude ones are my absolute favorites and these Yosi Samra Roee Flip Flops look perfect. No logos, no frills or fancies, just good quality and simple lines. Quite the opposite of simple is this Rebecca Minkoff Jules Tote, but seriously - how gorgeous is it? That bright citrine color is on my radar. And last but not least, cat eye sunglasses are always in my arsenal, but these gucci oversized glasses are the must of all musts for summer.
