My favorite season has finally rolled around and with it comes a raft of exciting fashion. Summer is the perfect time to get a little wild with your wardrobe. The streets are lined with “it-girls” sporting bright hues and punchy patterns. However, we can’t turn our backs on the classic summer staples every woman need in her closet.
First let me start by giving my mother a public apology for bashing her wanting a pair of overalls all these years (no need to call me with the ” I told you so”, mom). I’m currently obsessed with this trend and constantly taking notes when I see other ladies in them. I don’t think I could come up with a more versatile, practical item if I wanted too. And please tell me these white overalls from Madewell wouldn’t be totally chic with a chambre button down underneath. Madewell Denim Boyshorts: rip and repair edition $74.50
I personally bought this exact pair of shorts just about a week ago and I am in love. They are hands down the most comfortable pair of shorts that I currently own or have owned in the past. There is always a high chance of me referring you to Madewell when denim comes into play, I will go to my grave swearing by Madewell denim. As far as why denim shorts are a staple, I feel like that’s pretty self-explanatory. They’re denim shorts, they’ve been a staple since the beginning of time. You will literally ALWAYS need a pair of denim shorts. Always.
I would personally argue that middi skirts are the chicest, most fashionable skirt length. I’m drawn to them and you should be too. They can be girly, edgy (I have a totally badass leather pleated Zara one), or quirky. Depending on the way you pair it with other pieces. But most of all midi skirts are classy and timeless. They will never go out of style, as soon as they lifted women’s hem lines these babies were in style and they’ve stayed in ever since.
Ok, so a white t-shirt is a staple all-day-everyday winter to summer. I actually don’t see how it’s possible to function without a white tee. I must say though, summer is the season in which I am most grateful to have a few of these bad boys. Need something to wear with denim shorts? White Tee. Need to dress down that skirt? White tee. Want to be comfortable and cool? WHITE TEE. You can never not need a white tee. So if you don’t have one, get one. Now. Well, actually, spend a little more time exploring this wonderful little blog – then go buy your tee.
I think it’s common knowledge that everyone should have a pair of simple black sandals and simple tan sandals. I wanted to put this pair on here to let you know they do exist! I swear I’ve been looking for months for a pair without laces, or big buckles, or patterns and studs. But, I finally found them. Every women should own this exact sandal. They match EVERYTHING and they are unbelievably comfortable. These may just be the Holy Grail of the tan sandal.
