my summer wardrobe staples


Y’all. Dallas hit TRIPLE DIGITS yesterday already!!! And it’s only early June! Makes me scared for the rest of summer haha BUT so excited for it all at the same time! Today I wanted to round up my summer wardrobe staples for you guys! These are the items in my wardrobe I wear over and over again, year after year, that you can mix & match in so many different ways. Basically just a round-up of all the best summer basics!



First we gotta talk about these denim shorts! You guys know how obsessed I am with my AGolde Parker denim shorts. I saw this new style online and loved the relaxed fit / longer length. These are for sure a summer staple for me! The length is long enough to wear I feel comfortable chasing a toddler around in them but not SO long where they look like total mom shorts. They are super flattering and like all AGolde denim – amazing quality. I’m wearing a size 25 in these!



This white tee is another summer staple of mine! The subtle padding on the shoulders makes it just slightly more elevated than a basic white tee but it’s not too over the top either! It’s under $50 and looks great with shorts, jeans, and can definitely be dressed up or down!

It’s no surprise these Steve Madden sandals made my list of summer essentials! (I feel like I wear them in 90% of my pics haha). They are under $100 and literally go with everything – dresses, shorts, denim etc! The studs on them make them super versatile – you can wear them super casual like I am here or pair with a little black dress just as well! They are comfy, neutral, feminine and chic and the perfect addition to any summer shoe collection.


Rounding up a few more of my summer wardrobe staples in the collage below! You can click / tap on any item to shop!


My go to sandal for any date night or wedding! They are the perfect heel height, so comfortable, and look perfect with jeans or dresses! I've had mine for years now and they just never go out of style!

These under $50 hoops from Kendra Scott are a MUST! I love that they are small and simple but still chunky and make a statement. They go with everything and they are amazing quality!

I just got this oversized denim jacket from Madewell and LOVE the lightwash! Looks so cute over summer dresses!



I also threw in a few of my new favorite skincare and beauty faves for summer! I am officially obsessed with Patrick Ta (as I’m sure you’ve seen if you follow me on instagram) and this contour + bronzer duo has become a new go-to of mine. All five of these items help give you that perfect, beachy glow!
