Summer Favorites- Wardrobe Essentials

July 28, 2017

Thrifty Wife, Happy Life || Summer Wardrobe Favorites- 5 summer clothing essentials

We are officially in the dog days of summer.  Don't get me wrong, I love summer.  Who doesn't?  But sometimes I get really bored with my summer wardrobe.  The heat can really limit you on what you can wear.  In the spring I get so excited for shorts, sandals and dresses, but by the end of July, I really start missing my jeans and cardigans. 

To help me pull through these last few weeks of summer, I've decided to do a 3 part series to focus on all my summer favorites.  I will be sharing all my favorite summer wardrobe pieces, beauty products and accessories.  Today I want to start off my series by talking about my favorite everyday summer wardrobe pieces.

As I said before, getting dressed in the summer time can be challenging when it's 110 degrees outside, but I have narrowed down my closet to 5 must have clothing items that I've had on repeat this summer.

LBD-  If you've been reading along, you know I love a great black dress.  I live in these dresses during the summer.  I really just love how versatile black is.  It can be accessorized in so many ways.

Denim vest-  I bought my denim vest for $2.50 at Savers a couple months ago and it might have been the best 2 dollars and 50 cents that I spent all summer!  The sleeveless style makes it perfect for layering in the heat.

Jean shorts-  I prefer to wear long jeans, but when it's really hot, jean shorts have been my go to bottoms.  I bought this Abercrombie pair of shorts (seen below) at Savers for $5 this past January.  They are a little on the short side, but they're super comfortable and have quickly become my favorite pair of shorts.

Lose fitting tank tops-  I am just loving lose tank tops that you can tuck into your shorts.  I'm loving this look, because it's much more flattering and comfortable than a fitted tank.

Maxi dresses-  The hardest part of getting dressed in the summer time, is figuring out how to dress for work.  I can't wear shorts, sandals or thin tank tops.  I find maxi dresses a great summer clothing item for work, because they help me stay covered up, but they are also comfortable to wear in the heat.
