The Want List : Summer Fashion Essentials

As the warmer weather quickly approaches, I am updating my closet to include a few essentials.
Done right, just a few key items can quickly update your current wardrobe keeping you current for the summer and beyond. 

Summer Ready

1. Shoes - Add just three key pairs.
one - a basic trainer. I like these by Stan Smith and they have a great variety of colour options.
two - a lace up anything.
three - switch up your stilettos for a block heel. Super comfortable too.

2. A bodysuit.
These by Topshop are both cute options. At my age, I add a 3/4 blazer or light cardigan and am good to go.
I love the smoothness achieved at the waist.

3. Lighten up your handbags.
Do away with the black and navy, add a nude and a pastel.
A good quality clutch and a tote or bucket bag will get you through in style.

4. Dresses.
I'm kinda partial to wearing one or another every day come summertime.
SO easy.
A chambray version, {with or without bohemian-style elements} and a maxi in a pretty floral print would do nicely. I'm on the hunt for the latter as we speak. 

5. A pretty detailed blouse.
Make it lace or crochet. The options out there are endless.
I'm kinda partial to this one myself - just stunning.

6. And last, but certainly not least.
The 2 pieces that are non-negotiable this season, both with a little bit of shoulder.
one - an off the shoulder blouse, I love this chambray version and the price is definitely right.
two - a "cold shoulder" version. Perfect for showing a little bit of skin and still covering up an area that is often a problem for women - the upper arm.
I may or may not own this exact one.

So, what are you adding to your closet this season?
Happy Friday.

  1. Dearest Susan,
    Love the block heel pumps, especially with the ankle strap as they always have been my favorite. They look great on our feet too!
    Indeed a good quality clutch you selected, love YSL.
    Love the #5 blouse as well.
    Don't know if I will add many things to my summer wardrobe... if I find something at the Outlet that I really fall in love with? That always ends in adoption!


I love reading every last one. Thanks so much for stopping by our little blog. xo.
