5 summer wardrobe essentials

are you ready for summer? technically, it doesn’t arrive until june 21st. but i’ve always associated the summer kickoff with memorial day. and guess what? the long three day weekend is just days away. ready or not those long, hot summer days are upon us. so let’s take a look at 5 summer wardrobe essentials that will serve you well june, july and august.


there’s always a lively discussion when it comes to jumpsuits. some women can’t be bothered with them. but i’m a fan. just like a dress they are one and done. and they’re perfect for those hot summer temps that are on the horizon. jumpsuits look fabulous with a blazer. but they can fly solo just as well. which is why a jumpsuit makes the 5 summer wardrobe essentials list.
