Summer is coming. It's like, officially days away. I want to spend as much time as possible (until baby sister arrives!) enjoying the all sunshine and amazing weather and less time in my closet trying to figure out what to wear.

Standing in front of a closet full of clothes and thinking “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!” is kind of the worst, right?! That's why I'm all about closet staples and tried and true favorites. These summer essentials will help you combat those “nothing to wear” moments and throw together a summer outfit that looks cute and will get you out the door in a flash!

Tory Burch Sandals: These are my fave flip flops of all time ever. Period. End of story. They're insanely comfortable. Like walk all over Europe comfortable-which I did! They're just a little bit fancier than your average flip flop, which is perfect because they can be easily dressed up or down!

MZ Wallace Tote:  This is my ultimate EVERYTHING bag because it squishes into the smallest corner of your suitcase and pops out looking perfect, it wipes clean, has removable zipper pockets on the inside. This bag goes with me to the beach and workouts and is seen in the hippest places from New York to LA. I'm obsessed. It's definitely on the pricey side and although I really think it's worth the investment, I found a super similar but cheaper version here!

J.Crew Swimsuit: This is one of J.Crew's best sellers and one of my very favorites! The stripes are so classic that this suit will be your go-to for many summers to come! It's a super flattering suit and the one-shoulder tie keeps things flirty and fun! I love that they keep bringing this swimmer back year after year because it's such a crowd pleaser.

Ray Ban sunglasses:  I really, really love these sunnies because they’re so lightweight you can wear them all day without a headache. You can wear them with your dressiest outfits or running errands in yoga pants and a tee! Here's a similar but cheaper version if the originals aren't in the budget!

Madewell V-Neck Tee: When I'm not pregnant (ha!) I cannot go a week without wearing this tee. I've bought this shirt over and over and OVER again. It's the perfect staple to throw on with jeans or with some shorts and a lightweight kimono!

Jean Jacket: Summer nights can still get a little chilly-depending on where you live! I've had this cute jacket for a few years now and I'm still totally in love with it. It's super soft and the fit is super flattering-other jean jackets can sometimes be boxy! It's very lightweight and such a good price at $75!

Black swimsuit coverup: This coverup is THE best! I absolutely love that you can still see your cute swimmer when you have it on! It's super light and airy making it the ideal layer on the warmest summer day. Plus at $35 it doesn't get much more wallet friendly! You neeeeeed this!

Chuck Taylor sneakers: Comfy is one of my love languages and Chucks fit the bill! I love throwing these on with EVERYTHING in the summer! They honestly never go out of style.


Those are some of my very favorite summer closet staples that I've worn year after year! What are yours? Let me know in the comments!!
