1. Nike Tempo Shorts

These shorts are a summer staple piece item. They re easy to toss on when heading to the pool, gym, park, or running errands!

2. Kendra Scott Necklace

I having been lusting over Kendra Scott for some time now, the beautiful pendant necklaces and bracelets are cute and add a feminine touch to any outfit.

3. Lilly Pulitzer Beach Towel

Now this you may have a hard time finding due to the extreme popularity of the Lilly for Target line. However, any cute beach towel will do for your days at the pool or beach vacation.

4. Long Champ Le Pliage Tote

I have had my Long Champ for over a year now and still love it to bits and pieces. The nylon fabric makes it easy to clean and wipe down if sand or anything else spills. It’s great for tossing all your pool essentials in and heading outside.


If you’re like me you’ve been loving this romper trend. What’s not to love, they are easy, functional, and cute! Several places sell them for low prices while you can still splurge and purchase one from your favorite boutique.

6. Ray Ban Aviators

These puppies will keep your eyes shaded during the hot summer months. If you’re in to croakies, Lilly Pulitzer  makes adorable ones that looks great with Ray Bans.

7. Hat

Whether you’re into monograms, baseball teams, or even your own school any baseball cap will do! I love wearing these on days when I’m running errands for a preppy and sporty look.

8. J Crew Chino Shorts

J Crew offers chino shorts in all different lengths, colors, and patterns. I would suggest purchasing a few basic colors first to build your wardrobe. You’ll probably own these for a long time considering they don’t go out of style.

9. Hunter Rain Boots

Hunter Rain Boots make for the perfect shoes during those summer storms. Not only are they cute and stylish but they last forever.

10. Jack Rogers

Last but not least, Jack Rogers. These sandals come in all different styles and colors. Not to mention several companies sell knock off versions that are much cheaper and still look cute!
