Many requests for summer item suggestions have come in, so I’m sharing what I have recently purchased or things on my wish list. If you’ve followed along for a while, you know that I make a list of things missing from my closet or replacements needed. I do lots of research and planning before I make a purchase, so it was well thought out by the time it went in my cart.
Recent sunny days have me thinking about warm weather options. The look above is one I wore for a lunchtime date with Mr. Mickery. However, layers will soon be too much, so I’m taking a serious look at my summer items now. Pieces similar to what I’m wearing above are linked since none are new.
In summer’s heat and high humidity, a loose-fitting dress made from a lightweight woven fabric is unsurpassed for comfort. In addition, we usually wash summer clothing after each wearing, so they show wear faster than the cold weather options. I purchased the blue and the black versions of this dress and I found them here.
As summer clothing needs replacing more often, summer shoes also need more frequent upgrades. So I purchased these Soludos chambray wedge espadrilles to wear with white ankle pants and midi-dresses. I found them here.
I bought several colors and multiple white oxford cloth shirts last fall, so I have a fresh supply for summer. They are great to wear with the collar and cuffs turned up with a few buttons undone. I often wear them with white or light blue jeans. Unfortunately, the shirts are out of stock now, but you will find them here in a few more days.
A trip to the Farmer’s Market, my neighborhood pool, or the beach means an oversized tote is essential. I already have two excellent totes from Mar Y Sol, but I am very tempted by this one. The timeless style and high quality are rare in summer totes. The pictured tote is here.
For those who asked for a skirt recommendation for warm weather, neutral colors with button details will look great with tees of nearly any color. The denim A-line skirt is here.
