Easy Summer Style

Last fall I did a "style" post - I said it then, and I'll say it again - for all of my friends who have real personal style, my apologies : )  My personal style is simple.  So simple that you might not really think I have a personal style - ha!  But, I'm actually very particular about what I wear and what I buy and as I've grown older, I'm comfortable settling into my minimalist uniform.  I am also more careful about what I accumulate.  I hate disposable clothing and if I bring it into my closet, I want to be able to keep it for years and years.  

In the summer, I wear mostly all white, or blue and white.  You can never go wrong with all white - it looks clean, fresh and great with a tan.  I wear very simple minimal jewelry, usually just a thin gold anchor bracelet I found a couple of years ago.  I use wraps in the evening to add pops of color to my otherwise all white outfits.  I almost always wear flat sandals - gold for dressier occasion and leather for casual.  This year I've found lots of well-priced simple dresses that I love and I'm always happy to add those to my closet since it makes getting dressed that much easier.  

I discovered some great finds at J.Crew Factory this year - not always a favorite of mine because sometimes I find quality issues like not washing up great or not fitting nicely, but this year I've noticed a huge improvement.  I also mixed in some regular J.Crew, Nordstrom, Target and Vineyard Vines.  Sometimes I'm in the mood to splurge on items, like the more expensive Jack Rogers (which I've had for years and never go out of style) and other times, I buy $12 sandals from Target (that are so comfy!) that fit the bill for everyday easy outfits.

Here is a look at what our during the day essentials look like - pool cover ups, Tote Bags, hats & Wraps.  I usually wear a tunic or Oxford shirt for a coverup and am never without a hat in the summer.  I'm actually one of those moms that gets in the water and swims at the pool, so I like to throw on a hat when I get out of the pool.

The Tote Bags, Set of 3, $15 have been restocked and work so great as simple bags to take to the beach or the pool.  Emma and I both have our own.  Hers is filled with googles and pool toys and mine has change of clothes, sunscreen and magazines.
