Summer is coming quickly, and we all know that the heat in Mississippi is no joke. During the sweltering months, my main goal is to express myself while also keeping cool. As we push toward a new season, here are my top four staples to keep handy throughout the summer months.
Maxi dresses can’t be beat in the summer. If it’s breezy and easy to wear, it’s instantly added to my wardrobe. This Free People maxi dress puts the “maxi” in maxi dress. It’s a flowy piece that features a V-shaped neckline and an exposed back with a tie — perfect for summer and easy to dress up and down.
No outfit is complete without accessories. Next to an amazing pair of shoes, purses add the final touch to any ensemble. This season, I’ve noticed a trend in clothing and accessories. Straw, crochet and even knit items are trending for this summer and beyond. And guess what — they don’t have to be expensive. Some of my favorites come from Target, with amazing prices, styles, and color.
Everyone knows I love a matching set. It must be the easiest outfit to put together, and you don’t have to think about what you’re going to wear. Things I look for when buying a set are color, style and how it fits my body shape. I love the front tie in this Lulus set, while the Saboskirt matching set gives full-on vacation vibes.
LINEN BLEND TOPS
Summer is the best time to wear linen; it’s the ideal fabric for hot weather. I love that linen is breathable, and you can find amazing items that enhance your style. Plus, linen pieces are versatile basics you can wear for almost any occasion. The green linen button-down shirt from Zara is a perfect example. You can pair your favorite linen top with shorts or a loose mom jean to get that comfy, casual look.
