I'm a summer girl through and through. Being born in July, I have always loved this time of year we are headed into. Hot days on the beach, warm nights sitting outside, frozen cocktails, fresh food, blossoming flowers, dining al fresco - I'm here for ALL of it.
BUT, I know my summer is looking quite different this year and I'm sure yours is too. Trips have been cancelled. Restaurants and bars may still be somewhat closed. Social outings and celebrations scaled down. A LOT has been impacted. But what hasn't been impacted is our ability to add a pop of color into our day with a pretty dress or lay outside in a cute swimsuit to catch some rays in our backyards.
While we've been living through some pretty uncertain times, I've found the most peace in maintaining a steady routine. These days I feel the most motivated when I get myself ready for the day and I plan to continue that into these summer months spent at home.
So in today's post I am rounding up my summer staples - items that I absolutely love for these next few months of sunshine. Pieces that bring me joy and brighten up my day. Quarantine or not, you better believe I will still be dressing up for summer and making the most of this time.
