All about that top.
Ladies, if you’re going for shorts and a tank top, that shirt better be making a statement! I like to look for shirts that are simple yet have interesting details such as lace, peplum, straps or zippers. For me, this striped racer back tank does it all. The high neckline gives it some intrigue, the loose fit definitely cools me down, and the stripes are one of my favorite summer prints. Every fashionista must have at least ONE striped shirt in her closet at all times and it’s hard to go wrong with a top like this especially for the price! Using my code MISSMOLLY20, exclusive for Style Miss Molly followers, you can get it for only $19. Sweet deal right there!
Easy city flats.
Yes, you need some comfortable flats for your fun summer activities. I recommend staying with a neutral pair of sandals like these studded flats that you can style with anything. Not only will this save you money, but it will be especially helpful when you’re traveling by not having to pack as much. Neutral shoes have saved me so much on my weekend getaways!
A go-to pair of shorts.
Every girl needs a pair of go-to summer shorts and these are it for me. HER. Boutique is full of some great styles. I could live in these Articles of Society distressed shorts all summer long and they go with everything (Again, great deal at only $43 using my discount MISSMOLLY20). They are one of those styles that are on repeat so you will definitely be getting your money’s worth! The distressed denim is also a fun way of making it summer ready without looking too dressed up. Depending on the top you style it with – casual, chic, or a little bit of both – you are ready for looking fashionable all summer long!
A large bag.
I don’t know what I would do without a large bag in the summer time. It seems like I’m always on the go and need room to carry my essentials. Again, I love keeping it neutral so it goes with anything and you don’t have to switch it out a lot. My post “The Only Color Handbag You’ll Ever Need” can tell you why. I love a bag with structure because it helps keep the look chic, but totes (especially reversible ones) are definitely at the top of my list too! Currently, this Kate Spade bag in blush pink is on clearance for only $167. I love Kate Spade! Who’s with me?!
Accessorize with statement jewelry like these amazing sparkle earrings or bold lipstick to brighten up your look. Keeping things minimal in summer is always welcome too, so this is totally optional, but I can’t seem to get away from my personal obsession for bold lipstick and statement earrings. It seems to help polish off the look by keeping me fashionable with a smile on my face!
