Top Picks for the Spring & Summer

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.


I am all about items of clothing that serve a purpose and not filling up my closet with trendy pieces that are poor quality and guaranteed to only last one season.  I have put together some of my favorite items for the Spring/Summer that I guarantee are going to be your go to must have items.  Let’s get right into it.

Shop This Post!


This Most Flattering Straw Hat Under $50

This straw hat keeps on going in and out of stock for a reason.  Any time that I want to elevate an outfit and pull it all together, I reach for this hat.  It is extremely flattering and the brim is large enough to protect that precious skin from the sun.  Grab it again before it sells out.


Palm Print Everything

I don’t know if it’s because I live in Florida or this print just makes me want to go on permanent vacation but I am all about the palm prints.  I picked up these mules from Schutz that are selling out everywhere but finally found them restocked on Zappos here.  How perfect is this palm slip dress from Amanda Uprichard?



A Casual Pair of Distressed Boyfriend Shorts

I pretty much live in mine during the weekends.  I did splurge on a pair of Rag & Bone ones that are now sold out, similar here.  I will tell you they are worth every penny.  They do not lose their shape or bag out and I swear the denim gets softer with each wear.  I did pick up a budget friendly pair before I splurged on those from Target and they are a great budget friendly option.  Mine are old but similar here.  I love tucking in slouchy t-shirts like this under $20 staple from Madewell.  I even knot it to the side.


A Carryall Beach Bag

This was the best purchase ever from Target.  Not only does it carry everything to the beach but I use it whenever I do a big shoot content for the blog outing.  It easily looks like a $150 tote and it was $30, grab it here.



Something With Scallops

You by now know my complete love for all things scallops.  This bathing suit is a complete splurge but it’s so versatile.  You could bring this on vacation and seriously wear it with everything.  Casual for lunch with BF shorts or dress it up for dinner with a maxi skirt and long delicate necklace.  Here is a budget friendly option under $25 here.


Floral Print Dress

Florals for Spring I know so ground breaking but I love the excuse to feel feminine and girlie in a pretty floral dress. I love the options with BB Dakota here.


One Bright Piece

In my personal opinion, Amanda Uprichard has the most vibrant and colorful line.  This baja dress is one of my absolute favs for the Summer.


One Splurge Pair of Sunglasses


The Harvest sunglasses are my new preferred Karen Walker classic over the Super Duper.  They are so much lighter on my face and I adore the shape of them.



Pop of Pink Bag or Shoes

Yup, I pretty much wear these Yaro sandals by Sam Edelman with every outfit.  They are insanely comfy and dress up every outfit.  This turquoise dress is back in stock find it here.



The Walk for Miles Flat Sandal

They have been selling out everywhere and for good reason.  They are buttery soft and so comfortable.  Get them fully stocked here before they are gone again!




There you have it!  Some of my favorite staples for the Spring and Summer.  What are you loving and can’t live without?  I hope you had a great weekend!!!

    I have some mad love for a good pair of Dolce Vita shoes! I love your Amanda Uprichard dresses and they look amazing on you!!! But I have to wear something that is at my knee or barely above it. No one wants to see these legs. I need to work on that so I can wear something like that!!! Such great summer staples on your list! Love the palm print stuff too!

  10. This is the perfect list of must-haves! The only thing I’m missing is distressed shorts… guess I better get on that one! I’m so glad that summer is here!!

  11. Love them all! I have all of these in some form except something palm print, and I need to make that happen. I am on the hunt for more super casual sundresses too, I used to have so many and they all seem to have sprouted legs like all of my pure barre socks that I only have one of!
