12 Summer Essentials under $100

With the celebration of Memorial Weekend (albeit a rainy one) and some states re-opening, we can assume that summer is finally here! As I have openly admitted, I am a shopaholic who can literally spend hours searching the net for anything and nothing! This weekend was a perfect opportunity to add some new summer essentials to my closet. Hopefully, I get to wear these (safely) sometime soon! Since I live in Florida, I love easy breezy fabrics that keep me cool and comfy. Check out what’s currently in my shopping bag!


Summer Whites

Summer was made for bright white looks. Clean, crisp and always ready for a summer cookout.


I love this cute and sexy romper from Nasty Gal! I envision wearing this to brunch, BBQs and hanging out with the hubby. At 60% off, I will find an excuse to wear it.


Pairing this long sleeve top from Zara with denim shorts, white or blue denim jeans. I love pieces with unexpected details that can elevate a classic look. White top with shorts but make it fabulous!


This casual but feminine eyelet dress is perfect for hanging out with my family during our weekend kickbacks. 25% off and a sweet summer essential.


Another flattering off-the-shoulder white top that can easily create a fab all-white look or paired with colored bottoms. I plan on wearing it with these high-wasted denim shorts from Zara for another easy summer look.


Summer Brights

I absolutely loooove bright colors. As a dark-skinned woman (yass to my melanin queens) I love how color pops on my skin. I find any excuse to wear bold colors or bold accessories to make my skin shine. Bold colors make me feel powerful and fierce, especially in the office. Thankfully, summer gives you the perfect opportunity to compete with the sun!


Literally obsessed with this linen short suit set from Mango… I wonder if I can get away with this at work? I personally would pair this with a deep V top in white or a crop top in yellow, orange or bright pink. Bonus- this lightweight blazer would be perfect for the office too.

Who doesn’t love a bold coordinated look?! Both the wide leg pants and top are from Zara. Perfect for the office (for us creatives), happy hour or any social event. I love how the hemline of this Peplum Zara top would elevate a basic black pant too.

This short and bright weekend dress will easily transition from casual to fabulous with just a change of accessories. You can meet me at Publix or lunch in Wynnwood looking like a whole vibe..... I mean, why not??



Summer Essential Accessories

I love a statement flat! These two styles from Sam Edelman (currently 40% off) are the perfect neutrals to add to a summer look. This straw Chanel-inspired sandal will compliment my many all-white looks. I love it paired with this fabulous summer bag from Target!


The snake Granada flats and elephant earrings are giving me ultimate safari vibes. Complete nostalgia from our honeymoon. I can’t wait until we can safely travel overseas again… Until then, you can catch me in these pieces making more memories!


Happy Summer!
