The Wanted List: Summer Staples

Summer Staples
Am I the only one that seems to wear the same things over and over again? When I shop, I try to find staples that I can mix and match and wear with a variety of options. I recently picked up a striped tank and a solid white one, and I've already gotten so much use out of them. I work in a more casual environment (and it's also been incredibly warm) but I do try to dress up a little bit for meetings, so it's perfect to wear with a cotton skirt and to throw a blazer on top for the meeting.

I absolutely love this J.Crew camisole - the ruffle detail is fun and flirty to pair with shorts, but it could also easily be tucked in to a skirt or cropped pants for a more polished look. A tote is also a necessity for me -- not just in summer but year round. It seems as though I fill it up a bit more in the summertime, with an umbrella, bottles of water, etc. I also really like mixing and matching swim suits. It's very rare that I buy a matching top and bottom -- instead, I'll buy a print and a solid, or find something that matches a piece that I already have in my bikini drawer.

Last but not least, summer accessories are definitely staples for me. I love the Miller sandal - Stephen gave me a pair for my birthday and I know I'll be living in them all summer. I never leave the house without sunglasses, even if it's raining, as my eyes are so sensitive to sun, and these are on my wish list. And a crossbody is perfect to toss in your tote -- then if you are going out or just need to run in somewhere quickly, it's easy to grab and go.

What are your summertime staples?
