Summer Essentials

Recently I went to Atlanta (read about it here) and did a little summer shopping. Yes--I know I was technically on a "shopping ban," but I couldn't go to a shopping wonderland and NOT buy a couple of pieces! The shopping ban did last 17 days which was pretty fabulous for me if I do say so myself.

Long story short, the shopping ban was broken but I got some great pieces. Plus, I'm initiating the ban again starting today (that makes it ok, right?).

Onto my purchases. The pictures above are not the exact items/brands I bought, but they are extremely close.


  • I bought two pairs of chinos from Gap in hot pink and white. I'm super excited about these because they are a great fit and a really light material
  • Gap also had some great fitting v-neck t shirts. I bought one in mint (of course) and lavender - a new favorite. With some jewelry, I think these will make cute combos with the chinos.
  • This is NOT the maxi dress I bought, mine actually came from the loft outlet. It's a navy/paisley combo and I love. I'm also loving this old navy maxi dress shown above. 
  • I bought a skirt similar to the one shown above from old navy. It was on clearance for $11 and  perfect fit. I couldn't pass it up!
  • Finally, I'm in love with these sandals. The ones pictured above are from target. Mine are very similar, but I bought them from Marshall's for $19.99. 
I'm super excited about my summer staples, now I'm ready for some 70 degree weather to wear them!

What summer staples are you loving?
