My Favorite Basics For Summer

I guess you could say it's officially summer here in the Chicago area! I'm so excited to officially be soaking in some warm sunshine, enjoy long walks with the kids and have longer days to just enjoy what life's given us. Alright I know I'm getting a little sentimental but summer truly has been one of my favorite seasons ( and because summer is when my birthday happens so ya know.. ) Also, when we shot this it was about 30 mile an hour winds so don't mind the crazy top knot blowing everywhere! EEK!
Now that I'm actually home with the kids I've been trying to figure out my wardrobe, especially because I'm running around after Landon or attempting to grab Lily as she runs a million miles an hour on our long walks. My wardrobe has to be comfortable and most of all functional from running errands, going to play groups and even a few blogging meetings. I wanted to find a few great basic items for you to wear and mix and match this summer so here are a few of my favorites ( and all at a great price point ! )
Earrings - I'm actually not a big earring person but when I found these on sale, I loved the layered tassels! They were so fun to either dress up with a cute shift dress or dress down with white pants and a black top! You'll love them too, I can bet that!


White / Light Denim - As much as I love a good denim jean like the next person, I also love a good white or light denim to mix it up a bit. I tend to gravitate towards the darker washes but I found this white pair and this light denim the other day and had to get both! They are high waisted and in my opinion, a staple short for your closet this summer


White V Neck - I shared this on my stories the other day and you guys were loving it! I always have a comfortable v-neck in my closet and if it's one I can see myself wearing a ton, I'll get a bunch of colors in them. I love this one for being under $20 and extremely soft! I also love this pink front tie shirt. It's light weight and perfect to layer!
Sneakers - There is nothing more that screams summer to me then a cute pair of shoes! I'm so excited to have found a great pair of white ones like this. They are extremely comfortable and I actually am able to keep them white all through the upcoming months.
Comfortable Dress - I love a love a good light weight dress to throw on in the morning and still can wear at night to a date with my girls or my husband ( I usually just change shoes ). This one is on sale right now and the perfect little navy dress to wear! I love the streps and how flowy it is!

What are some basic's that are your staple in your closet , especially when it comes to warmer weather!?

  1. I love your overalls here; I really want to get some!! Thanks for the ideas - that pink shirt and navy dress are adorable! I'm definitely someone who wears a lot of dresses in the summer. And I wear sneakers a lot too, especially if I'm going to be walking around a ton.

  2. I love that blue dress! I just got a pair of earrings like that too, from Finch Finery for like $12! I'd recommend her etsy store if you like that style! I need a good pair of sunnies too, come to think of it...

  3. I live on the coast of North Carolina and it's hot, hot, hot already! I always opt for a sundress of some sort, similar to the one you posted, but usually without straps and typically, it's a lightweight maxi dress. I'm all about comfort during warm weather. Love your style! --Kristi

  10. I'm a huge white/light denim fan! I live in shorts identical to both of those whenever it's warm. I wish we weren't currently in Winter here in Australia!

  14. My basics are shorts and cotton tees. Oh and yes, sneakers too. I would love to have a new dress, preferably made of cotton with delicate floral prints. Isn't that the trend now? :)
