Living in the south, the summer heat can be unbearable. But living on the Mississippi River, the summer heat + humidity can make you absolutely miserable. Over the years I've found myself coming to back to these simple pieces that keep me calm, cool, and collected.
1.) A plain white oversized tee. I think white is an essential, but I like to stock up on other fun colors too.
2.) Summer Scarf. I absolutely love the summer boho look and this is a great way to get it. Just make sure your scarf is light and made from a "breathable" fabric.
3.) Coconut Mist. Nothing says summer like the fresh scent of coconut oil. I love it so much I'm guilty of wearing this throughout the winter too.
4.) Maxi dress. An absolute essential and perfect for the days when you just don't want to shave your legs. *ahem*
5.) Hair Pieces. I absolutely adore this House of Harlow greek inspired hair piece.
6.) Wedge Sandals. They're perfect dressed up or down.
7.) Flats. Warmer weather is not the time to stay in doors, and lets face it, you can only walk for so long in heels.
8.) Hoop earrings. Ummm yes. You need these. Combine with beach hair.
9.) Floppy hat. Perfect for the days when you're lounging poolside or simply don't want to fix your hair.
10.) Linen Pants. There is nothing worse than a hot day when you're all sweaty and having a tight pair of jeans that make your thighs feel like baked sausages. Enough said.
