I hope everyone has been having a great summer so far! Throughout the summer, there a ton of wardrobe must-haves for this summer. August is around the corner, so it’s time to snatch these essentials while you can!
Floppy hats are a serious must this summer. I purchase most of my floppy hats from discount stores such as Bealls, Ross, and TJ Maxx. They have floppy hats for cheap! These are great if you are going to the beach or having a brunch outdoors. I love wearing floppy hats just to spice up any outfit.
Floral shorts are another staple statement piece. I believe that floral is perfect for the spring and also in the summer. These shorts are from Torrid! This is perfect if you want to rock a basic color top like I did here. I loved mixing the bright yellow with the navy in the floral shorts. The yellow brings out the beige in the shorts for a neutral tone! I accessorized with gold hoop earrings and Alex and Ani bracelets.
Fruit or Floral Maxi Dress
Maxi Dresses! I am starting to love maxi dresses. Lemons, strawberries, sunflowers, roses, you name it, it’s in! I love this lemon maxi dress from Torrid. There are a ton of floral and fruit designed dresses on Torrid that are beautiful and amazing! I am obsessed with this lemon dress! I wear it all the time! I am literally wearing while I am writing this blog! Specifically, I love the smocked neck at the top of the dress. It is not like any dress I have in my wardrobe and that is why it is a summer essential!
I styled the dress with some white, pearl, circle sunnies, which is also another one of my summer essentials for a nice vintage look! Brown lace up shoes go great with the look and balance out my height with the maxi dress!
Crop Tie Top
I am obsessed with this next essential! In the summer, it gets very hot and sometimes will be in the high 90’s in Florida. A tie crop top like this from Charlotte Russe is perfect for the summer! This top is so pretty! The colors in the top are very vibrant, yet soft for the ultimate girly feel! I love the belled sleeves, the tie in the front, and how light it is. The shirt is pretty thin so it’s perfect for those hot days in the heat. If you like traveling, this top should be in your suitcase for some amazing Insta worthy shots!
To match the tie crop top essential, I added these bright purple shorts from Torrid. Colors are perfect for the summer! Lavender is the color of summer, so these shorts are perfect for any fun summer look! The shorts are similar to the shorts from my Fair Style Blog and my Sunflower Blog. These are super comfortable and flowy. If you are plus size like me, you need these shorts in your wardrobe. These shorts allow me to wear shirts that I use to think were impossible to wear! Now I can wear crop tops with confidence knowing my shorts are on point!
