8 Things You Need in Your Wardrobe for Summer

Now that spring is behind us and summer is here, you may be looking for a few things to help you stay stylish and cool.  Well, look no further, because I have done my research, and I want to share with you today 8 things you need in your wardrobe for Summer.  You might remember my 16 Spring fashion must haves. and you can still keep all of those things in your closet and wear them for Summer, but you may want to add a few additional items to your closet for Summer. 

Summer Wardrobe Essentials

A Chic and stylish bathing suit cover-up- a must for a trip to the beach.  I loved the pom pom cover-up so much that I ordered it.  It is on clearance for $13.90, so I had to have it!

Summer Sandals- when the lazy, hazy days of summer begin, you need a few pairs of awesome sandals.  Here are just a few that I love right now.

Besides wearing sun screen when you are out in the sun, it is always good to have an adorable hat on hand to protect your face and neck.

When you are off to the pool, the lake, or the beach, you need a great bag to carry your essentials.  I love all of these bags, but I own the gray and white striped bag with the pink handles.  This bag is from Thirty-one, this is not the pattern I have, but this bag is awesome.  It doesn’t have any pockets, but it is great if you have kids and need to pack lots of towels and pool or beach toys.  I usually take this bag with me if I am toting the kids, plus a beach bag that I can carry on my shoulder.  And check out the sweet DIY beach bags on the bottom left, you can click the link for the full tutorial (it’s not in English, but you can have google translate!).

I love maxi dresses and skirts during summer.  They look great, they are comfortable, and they are cool.

And of course, summer calls for a cute bathing suit!  I actually bought the pink on on the top left, and I absolutely love it (so does LC Winking smile).  The bathing suits pictures are bathing suits that are sexy and fun, but not too revealing, because at my age, that is what I am looking for in a bathing suit.
