Summer Capsule Wardrobe Shopping List

Hi my friends! Happy Tuesday. This weekend we were home in Pittsburgh for my grandparents 65th (yes, seriously!) anniversary and it was the best, most relaxing time.  I never sleep as well as I do when I'm at home - it feels so much more calmer :).

Since the weather is finally FINALLY (seriously, this past winter felt 20 years long) warming up, I wanted to share some items that I'm currently eyeing on my summer shopping list.  Similar to my Spring capsule wardrobe, I'll let you know what I end up purchasing from this post below and pull together some outfits so you can see the clothes in action! 

1. Statement pair of jean shorts: I have two pairs of jean shorts that I wear religiously - I have a destroyed pair, and I have a classic, mid-length pair.  This summer, I've wanted a pair that has a little bit more *oomph* because I'm usually reaching for a casual t-shirt and sandals during the summer.  This pair is definitely on my shopping list -- they're a flattering length (no booty shorts for me anymore), and the perfect amount of embellishment.  So excited to try these out!

2. Easy Summer Dress: I have a black silk Everlane dress that I find myself reaching for during the summer, as well as a printed madewell tie-shoulder dress, but I think there's more room in my wardrobe for one more summer dress! This option would be so versatile for both work and weekends, this black ruffled option is right up my alley, and I surprisingly don't have a white option in my stash for the summer. 

3. Cute, summery top: Tanks are the easiest option when it's hot and humid outside, and I've been eying up these comfy but still cute options: One, Two, Three.  I love looser tops when it gets so warm out so I get a little movement :).

4. Comfy slide sandals: I bought a pair of sandals last year at Target that I wore to DEATH, so this year I'm hoping to get a new pair to put in the rotation so I can still preserve my fav's! Here are some options that I'm digging: One, Two, Three.

5. Bright, fun jewelry. I pretty much never mix up my jewelry, and usually stick to pretty simple, dainty basics. I absolutely love turquoise in the summer, and I think that adding a piece to my summer jewelry collection would be perfect! I'm loving these options: One, two, three.

I'll keep you guys posted on what I end up ordering for this summer in an upcoming post! I'm so excited for lighter and brighter options.
