In the hot and humid summer, my basic wardrobe is: tanks, shorts, maxi skirts and simple accessories. Well, that’s if I’m going out in public…at home it’s yoga capris and a tank. Running around outside with the girls, I have to be comfy!
As a budget shopper, summer is by far my favorite season—everything is so cheap! You can find colorful tanks at Target, basic flip flops at Old Navy and fun necklaces basically anywhere. Throw on some shades and you’re set! I also love that maxi skirts and dresses are still popular. As a busy mom, it’s nice to have a long skirt that covers up everything and you don’t need to be worried about the wind blowing. For my recommendations on favorite maxi skirts, check out my last fashion post. Many of the sandals I mentioned are perfect for summer too!
For those few occasions where you want to dress up a bit, I’ve found a few perfect dresses with shoes and accessories all under $75 for EVERYTHING! (Of course, you can always save more by waiting for coupons or a sale!)These can be for showers, date nights or casual outdoor weddings. I know finding dresses can be rough, especially if you’re time crunched. If I have a few showers or weddings, I like to get a basic dress and switch up the accessories. SO much cheaper!
I’ve come up with 3 looks, with all items from one store. This makes it easier for ordering online, or you can head to the store and look for different variations. I’m all about one stop shopping!
