My Most-Worn Items This Summer

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end soon! Yesterday was the first day back to school for most schools here and over the weekend we got a bit of fall-like weather. It was so nice to have the windows open throughout our house, take Avett for walks, and actually be able to enjoy being outside without sweating! Even though I am looking forward to fall and all it entails, I have really enjoyed summer. It’s been a great albeit hot summer with lots of memories made! Today I wanted to share my most-worn items from this summer. These are all items that I found myself reaching for time and time again these past few months!

   my most worn summer favorites

  1. MZ WALLACE MEDIUM METRO TOTE | This bag has been my favorite for travel for a few years now. I have used it so often for vacations, weekend trips & even grocery trips. It’s the best carry-all bag.
  2. RAY-BAN SUNGLASSES | These are definitely my go-to sunglasses. These are similar to the wayfarer style, but a little more feminine!
  3. CLARE V. BAG | I bought this bag in spring and have certainly gotten it’s fair share of use! It holds way more than it seems like it would and always adds a fun element to an outfit.
  4. PENDANT COIN NECKLACE | This necklace looks great with almost any outfit – from a LBD to a white tee and shorts!
  5. GOLDEN GOOSE SNEAKERS | These have become my go-to travel sneakers. They are so comfortable, look chic and I love wearing them when I’m doing a lot of walking – whether that’s in the airport or around a new city. I like these particular ones because they don’t look dirty, like some others do!
  6. LITTLE WHITE MIDI DRESS | This has been a summer classic for quite a few years now. It’s such an easy, breathable dress to throw on throughout the warm summer months. Plus, it can be styled so many different ways!
  7. BOYFRIEND JEANS | I ordered these right before summer started and have worn them so often! It’s typically pretty chilly in restaurants and these have been a great alternative to skinny jeans!
  8. SWIMSUIT | I really like the simple style of this swimsuit (and that the bottoms are full coverage). I have this style in a few prints I like it so much!
  9. NEUTRAL WEDGES | Finding a good neutral pair of wedges is harder than one might think. I was SO happy when I found these because they look so nice and they’re really comfortable.
  10. AGOLDE SHORTS | I totally didn’t buy into the hype of these shorts for quite some time. In the spring I decided to order a pair & it’s confirmed, I get the hype! They’re a great length, not too tight on the thighs and they wear so well.
  11. MADEWELL TOPS | These are some of my favorite tops, no matter the season! The oversized fit is great (especially when it’s so hot!).
  12. OVERSIZED DENIM JACKET | Although it’s been hot here, every store & restaurant tends to blast the AC. I always bring a jacket with me so I’m not freezing!
  13. WHITE DENIM | White denim is hard to find, but this pair is excellent. This pair isn’t too tight and they’re not see through in the slightest.
  14. BRIXTON HAT | This has been my tried-and-true hat for many years now! It’s cute for pool/beach days and looks equally as cute with sundresses!
  15. GOLD SANDALS | These sandals go with just about everything in this collage – and it’s safe to say I have worn them with most things! I have a few different colors and so does my mom!
  16. PLAID BEACH BAG | This is such a fun, colorful beach/pool bag! It has top handles as well as a shoulder strap. If anything spills inside of it, it can easily be wiped right off.
  17. SMALL TRANSPORT TOTE | If you’re looking for a simple, functional crossbody bag – look no further! This transport tote is the perfect size & it has a zipper to keep your belongings safe!
  18. WHITE COVERUP | I adore this chic coverup! It’s super affordable and you’ll look really put together by the pool or the beach.
  19. MAXI DRESS | I have this dress in a red floral and it’s been a great flirty dress for summer. It’s lightweight and breathable – but you still look cute and put together!
