Summer is flying by at breakneck speed, so before we're all wearing winter coats again, I thought I'd share some of the hot weather items I can't live without this season. Check them out.
Even though I wear less in the summer, I seem to carry more. I can't help it – I feel naked without an oversize tote. I'm currently using a playful polka dot style but it's sadly starting to fall apart, so now I'm eyeing this gray striped nautical-inspired tote (Anthropologie, $68). I love the fact that it's slouchy and looks perfectly worn in.
As soon as it's warm enough to do away with pants, I make the switch to sundresses. My closet is bursting with breezy, beat-the-heat styles in a variety of prints but that doesn't mean I don't have room for one more. And the best part is sundresses are on sale, like this pretty floral frock I love (Zara, $30).
Summer is all about showing off brightly polished fingers and toes – and in my case, especially toes, so one of my biggest hot weather must haves is brightly-hued polish. I can't get enough of Essie's Big Spender, an eye-popping shade of fuchsia (ULTA, $8).
As much as I adore heels (and wear them often), there's something about strappy flats that I really love in the summer. They seem to go with everything from sundresses to jeans, and lately I'm really crushing on these super-cute metallic leather sandals (Opening Ceremony, $290).
What better time of year to wear an armload of brightly colored bangles than during the summer? You don't have to spend a lot – just buy some bracelets that make you smile. I love this squared off Kenneth Jay Lane bangle in a cheerful shade of coral (Charm & Chain, $40).
Like perfectly polished nails, having a subtly glossed pout is a summer must for me. I can't stand anything sticky but love the look of a slight sheen. My current go-to gloss is Cargo Cosmetics PlantLove Lip Gloss ($20) that offers high shine without the sticky feeling.
