PIPM: Pretty in Pink Megan: Summer Essentials

Summer Essentials

With Summer quickly approaching it's nice to take inventory of your summer essentials.  Personally, I need to invest in a few of these pieces before summer comes. 

1. Cotton Maxi Dresses- I could live in maxi dresses in the summer.  They are so easy to dress up or dress down and it's an added bonus that they are super-comfortable.  

2. Jean Jacket- I think this item is essential to wear over said maxi dresses or even little summer sleeveless dresses.  I like to roll up the sleeves of mine.  Make sure you get one that is super soft and lightweight.  You don't want a thick jean jacket when it's hot outside.  

3. Fedora- Yes, this is a little "hipster", but a great fedora can not only shield your skin from the sun, it can also be a fashionable way to hide a bad hair day! 

4. Statement Sunglasses- I love statement sunglasses.  The bigger the better.  

5. Colored Denim- if you haven't jumped on this train yet, now's your chance.  There are so many different colored jeans out right now and the prices vary from high to low.  

6. Wedges- Everyone needs a good pair of wedges.  You can wear these with shorts, dresses, skirts, and even skinny jeans.  

7. Striped Cotton Dress- I think this is such an essential item this summer.  You can throw on a colored scarf or wear it with a jean jacket or blazer.  

8. Jean Shorts- These are a given.  You can dress them up with wedges and a blouse or go casual with a cotton tee and some flip-flops! 

Any other summer essentials that you all have to have?

Nice, that maxi is perfect and so are the cat eyes. I need big jewelry. When I'm wearing lightweight and simple fabrics, I got to doll it up!
