10 Casual Summer Staples I Keep Reaching For
Happy June, friends! It’s officially HOT outside, and there’s no going back at this point haha.

Since I’m loving these items so much right now, I thought it would be fun to share the 10 summer staples I can’t quit wearing. What I love most about these items is how many ways I can wear them (no surprise there) and the fact that they’re classic items that will last you for years to come. Keep reading to find out what they are!
10 Summer Staples I’m Loving
**All images in the above graphic are clickable!
one // a denim jacket – perfect for layering and having on hand in case it cools off at night. I love this simple one from Abercrombie. It will be a closet staple for years to come!
two // an oversized white tee – I find myself reaching for this tee at least a couple of times a week. I just LOVE a white tee for spring and summer because it’s so simple and sure to keep you cool when it’s warm out. I like an oversized fit because so much can be done with it. Tuck it, knot it, wear it over a dress. The options are endless!
three // a pair of bike shorts – ok so I was not sure how I felt about this trend until I snagged a pair to try. These bad boys are like leggings for the summer. So comfy and, in my opinion, really cute if you style them the right way. I love pairing mine with an oversized tee or a blazer to dress them up. And if the trend ever goes out of style, you have yourself a pair of workout shorts!
four // a knit midi dress – I know you’re probably all tired of seeing this dress by now, but it’s just too good. The fabric is super stretchy, the length is perfect, and it can easily be dressed up or down.
five // a striped button down – It’s always a good idea to have multiple layering pieces in your closet. While you might think layers are for colder temps, they’re actually just as useful in the spring and summer. I love to wear this one buttoned up with denim shorts or layered over a tee!
six // a pair of white sneakers – another pick you’ve probably seen on me a few too many times, ha! There are just too many ways to wear them. They’re incredibly comfy, and the platform on this pair gives you a little lift and can replace that uncomfortable heel when you have some walking to do.
seven // a pair of mid length cutoff shorts – As I discussed in a previous blog post, denim shorts have been hard to come by over the last several years. Then I found these mid length denim cutoffs this year from Abercrombie and my life has been forever changed. Well, that’s a little dramatic, but y’all these shorts are GOOD. They provide great coverage, they’re comfy, cute, and affordable. Also, they come in several different washes which I love!
eight // a pair of light wash mom jeans – these mom jeans have been my favorite American Eagle find of the year, so far. They are SO comfy, and the light wash makes them perfect to wear in the summer. Ya know, in case you just don’t feel like shaving your legs that day.
nine // a top-handle tote – while I’ll never say no to a good crossbody, there’s something about a cute little top-handle tote that has my heart this year. I’m especially obsessed with this clear one. It goes with literally everything, and the insert is removable making it perfect for gamedays!
ten // a pair of neutral slide sandals – while I don’t own these (yet) I do have a couple of pairs that are similar, and I find myself slipping them on almost everyday. They’re incredibly comfy and just so easy to pair with everything!
