Where to Buy Your Summer Essentials
I don’t know about you but in the warmer months I find myself looking for staple pieces that I can wear all summer long; strangely enough, it doesn’t matter how many dresses, sunglasses, or handbags I already have in closet because every season I go on this quest for new fashionable items to update my look. One would think my search would lead me to some amazing finds, but the truth is I usually end up buying the same items every year – a dress, a basic tee, a white blazer, sunglasses, shorts, hat, a summer scent, a swim suite, an adorable pair of shoes, and of course fun summer nail polish colors.
I think many of you are like me and are looking for great summer buys that don’t cost a fortune but are chic, classic, trendy and most of all comfortable yet easy. If you are that girl, I’ve got you covered. I’ve scoured the internet and my many lookbooks for some amazing summer must-have each under $200.
