Summer is officially here! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend to kick off the summer season. I have been excited to start breaking out all of the summer clothes; wearing lots of skirts and dresses to work and it feels so great not to have to pair them with leggings and tights like we do for most of the rest of the year!
I wanted to share some of my favorite summer trends and items with each of you that are either on my list or are things I have purchased in advance of summer. You all know that I love to keep my style affordable so everything I’m sharing today is under $30 and all the photos and examples have links you can follow to go directly to the item online 🙂
Any and all sandals with the wide slide strap are HUGE for this season and so comfortable. I have 4 pairs that I got for the summer: 2 are from Gordmans and are a little on the funkier side. The other 2 pairs are from Target and I got them the other week when sandals were 20% off on Cartwheel. The Target pairs are solid colored and more classic – they will be perfect to wear at work as they are both comfortable but stylish and dressy enough for the office.
The shiny metallic rose gold pair and the floral patterned pair are both from Gordmans and they don’t have an online store so I can’t share links with you! But the light pink pair are from Target and you can find them here. There are multiple colors to choose from and they are only $12.99!! Another bonus is they are velvet-like in texture so they add a fun feel to any look. And here is the link to the black pair. These are extremely comfortable as the bottom is more of a cushioned feeling and they are only $12.99 too so I think you need both pairs!! A great black pair of sandals is a summer necessity for everyone!
Midi skirts with front buttons
This is another one of my favorite trends going on right now. I love longer length skirts as they are perfect for summer heat and can be worn casually as well as dressed up for work/office wear. I have scored a couple on the clearance rack at Target but here are two others that I have my eye on at the moment. One from Old Navy that is a great black and white gingham pattern. I’ve been a little lenient to hop back on the denim skirt trend but this one from Target might change my mind! I love that gingham print and stripes are huge this summer so finding a piece that combines these two trends is perfect 🙂
Funky shaped sunglasses – especially hearts!!
I have been spotting heart shaped sunglasses all over Instagram from some of my favorite influencers so I went in search of a pair of my own! I ordered these cute white ones from Urban Outfitters during the memorial day weekend sale and they were under $10 then but they’re still under $20 right now!! This pink pair is from the online shop of one of my favorite bloggers, Kelly Mindell (@studiodiy). They were just released today and are only $11.99! These will be fun shades to rock this summer when you’re enjoying the lake, hitting up a patio with friends, or just cruising around with the music up and the windows down!
Let me know if you try out any of these fun summer trends. I would love to hear from you! As always thanks so much for stopping by and reading! Be back again soon, have a wonderful weekend 🙂
