I don’t know why, but summers tend to be sooo busy! Maybe it’s getting to spend more time with my kids, or the endless backyard barbeques and events, but I just don’t have the energy for ironing clothes and putting outfits together.
So rather than putting effort into trying to be trendy, I’m focusing more on what I know works for me…my classics.
- Black is still my go to color. Granted I do sometimes incorporate other brighter ones, black is, and will always be, a major closet staple.
- Gold jewelry works with everything. I’ve been wearing these vintage bangles with all sorts of outfits from cocktail dresses to t-shirts and jeans. They’re super easy to wear. And I like that they make a little jingle sound when I move my hands.
- As much as I love my heels, my feet want nothing to do with them during the days of summer. (Nighttime is a different story…) I grabbed these sandals two summers ago from Marshalls. I love that they’re in neutral colors – the metallic and snake-print straps look great with nearly everything! Plus, they look way more grown-up than flip flops. (Don’t even get me started on those things!)
- Little crossbody bags will always be a part of my classic pieces. It’s no mystery that they’re perfect for anyone who needs her hands free, but they’re especially essential for moms. I can toss it into the bag for the beach and then grab it and go when it’s time to run to the grocery store. It’s basically my wallet, but includes my lip gloss and phone as well.
