What would summer be without the perfect straw hat, breeziest linen dress, and chicest beach tote? Well, it just wouldn’t feel the same. So I’ve rounded up my very favorite summer essentials. From the season’s must-have sandals to my favorite coasters for an impromptu al fresco cocktail, I’ve covered it all!
Summer has long been my most anticipated season. With the kids out of school, weekends at the lake, family vacations, and loads of outdoor entertaining, summer just does it right. This summer seems more full of optimism than ever. It’s like we’re finally coming out of a fog and the possibilities are endless!
I want to make the most of every moment this summer. To create beautiful memories with family and friends and to squeeze out every drop of joy and happiness this season holds. Having a chic roundup of summer essentials on hand is the perfect way to make the most of each day. And treating yourself to some cute summer goodies just makes the new season even more fun.
Heading to the beach for a family vacation is one of our long-standing summer traditions. It just doesn’t get much better than days spent in the sand and surf, sipping fruity drinks poolside, and nights around the bonfire. My new favorite sunglasses, fun terry swimsuit, and go-to sandals will all be in my beach bag this summer.
Oh, how I love to spruce up our home for the summer months. Adding fun new pillows, brightly colored glassware, and fresh flowers from our garden always brings a cool summer vibe to our home. I love making each room feel light and bright during this time of the year. With friends and family dropping by for visits, and more time spent entertaining outside, adding new pieces that bring a fresh feeling to our home is always a treat.
I truly love each season… but when it comes to my wardrobe, summer fashion takes the cake every time. Basically, I was born to wear linen dresses and sandals. That would be my uniform 365 days a year if I could pull it off. So safe to say, my summer closet essentials are breezy dresses, stand-out sandals, pool-approved jewels, and brunch to beach hats.
