Summer is right around the corner so I’m sure most of you are looking forward to the warm weather. I’m in the process of raiding my closet and going through my summer wardrobe and figuring out what I can reuse and what I need to purchase. Luckily, I’ve found a lot of great pieces while shopping for an upcoming trip and wanted to share some of my finds and must-haves with you guys! Below are 7 essentials for the summer season or a beach vacation.
1. Sunglasses! Nothing completes a look like a good pair of sunnies. I’ve been loving the bright colored shades. I LOVE these here. I haven’t had the time to actually go and try them on and make a purchase, but I plan on doing so very soon. I’ll post a pic once I purchase them! If you are looking for more of a traditional look, this style here is perfect. I love the classic black sunglasses look as seen in the above photo! I also included a classic tortoise look here.
2. A New Swimsuit. No matter how many swimsuits you might own, that new suit will make or break your summer wardrobe . There’s nothing better than feeling confident at the beach, and you can’t help but feel confident in a great swimsuit. Click here for 8 Bathing Suit Looks that Every Woman Needs.
3. A Beach Bag. A good fashionable bag for the beach isn’t just a plus, it’s a must. There are so many beach necessities you can’t go without a bag and bringing your leather or suede bag is just not practical. I have a couple Tory Burch beach bags that I love using for the beach. This one here is one of my favorites. I couldn’t find it in the color I have, but you can never go wrong with black. Now, if you are on a budget, Target has some awesome beach bags at a good price. This one here is so cute and comes in a bunch of colors!
4. A Beach Hat. After being in the sun for hours, I always throw on a hat to give myself a little cover from the sun. The hat in the above photo is one of my favorites and I got it at Lord and Taylor for under 50 bucks! Click here for details.
5 Flip Flops! A fashionable but cute pair of flip flops are just as important as your suit. I definitely would recommend either the Tory Burch or Michael Kors flip flops. Click here for more sandal and flip flop options!
6 Beach Cover Up. Who doesn’t love a good cover up? I just purchased these at Lord and Taylor’s: The Tie-Dye Cover Up | The Off The Shoulder Cover Up | The Ombre Cover Up | The Black and White Printed Cover Up
7 Get a Mani Pedi! Summer is the time for a fresh mani/pedi. I’ve been obsessed with nude nail polishes recently – they are so sophisticated, chic, and match with everything so you don’t have to worry about your nails clashing with everything you packed.
