Tortoise shell wayfarers

Tortoiseshell Wayfarers

Every girl needs a pair of Wayfarers -- they're fun and flattering on every face shape. Invest in an expensive pair that you know you'll wear for years (though if you're just trying the style out,  don't be afraid to buy a less expensive pair). Ray-Ban Wayfarers may have an '80s vibe for some, but it's a classic that will always be in style.

If jeans are a little too hot for your climate, then bright denim cut-offs are exactly what you need. Keep cool in fun-colored shorts, whether pastel, neon or bold colors. These Sunny Wash Joe's denim shorts are fashionable and funky, perfect for a day at the beach or summer barbecue.

Getaway tote

Summer brings many opportunities to slip away to paradise, so it's always smart to have a roomy and stylish tote on hand. Even more handy is a tote that doubles as a beach bag.

Cute cute cute! Loving all of these. Now I am dying to do some shopping! Especially love those bright, cut-offs and that stripped floppy hat! Great summer pieces for sure.

I live in maxis during the summer months. So comfy and so easy to take from day to night! I also love that Tory Burch tote. Totes are huge during the summer and always come in so handy!

I love that bikini! And those wedges, gorgeous! I love the summer time, I love being able to wear my bikini all the time and nobody thinks twice. Although, living in Arizona, the heat means that only the minimum amount of clothing is required lol. But it also means lots of cute, easy-breezy styles abound!

God, cut-offs are my uniform in the summer! I have a pair of bright red denim and bright aquamarine, I love them! With a nice white blouse, or a neutral cami they're perfect for Arizona's scorching summer heat! And they’re pretty versatile. Wear them with your bikini during the day, and slip on a nice button up blouse and some wedges and you’re ready for a night out on the town.
