Five Must Haves For Summer

Summer is practically here, and that means it's time to talk summer trends! I put together a list of my top five favorite trends for this the summer of 2016.

Let's discuss...

1. The Perfect Sandal

Sandals are essential for summertime. What makes a great sandal to me is one with a slight heel, some interesting detailing, and in a neutral color.

2. Bow Details

Adorable bows add a feminine touch to absolutely any outfit. Wear them in the straps of your sundress, wear them in your hair, wear a bow as a belt...wear them everywhere!

3. A Floral Maxi Dress

I love a maxi dress for the summer. This year I'm all about floral maxi dresses. It's so simple and stylish. Comfort never looked so chic.

Why fill your summer with boring blue denim shorts when there are so many bright and bold hues out there? It's summer...have a little fun!

5. A Great Straw Hat

I actually picked up a straw hat back in January when I went on vacation in the Caribbean, and I wore it practically the entire trip. I'm planning on breaking it out a bunch this summer. It's a look that anyone can rock! Keep the sun off of your face while looking so cool doing it.
