Having everything you need for summer is important. In today’s post, I’m sharing some summer essentials that are affordable and super stylish. I’m also sharing what’s at the top of my summer essentials list. Find tons of options in the boutique below. Also, there is a great SALE ALERT you don’t want to miss!

Shop my Favorite Affordable Summer Essentials


Shorts are one of my main priorities for summer. Especially in the Texas heat. I like to have a pair of denim shorts for casual days or hanging out by the pool. I also like to have a nice pair of white shorts to dress up with heels or cute sandals and a top. And it’s also nice to have some casual linen or cotton tie waist shorts. Find more shorts options below. I also wanted to note that most of the options in the boutique come in different color and pattern choices. So make sure to click on anything you like to shop it in more color options.

Summer Tops & Tees

Next, tops and tees are a must. I focused on offering you some pretty casual options in the boutique below. It’s good to have a cute button up. I love this one because it has the fun tie front details. You’ll also need a classic white tee or tank.

Summer Dresses

I love wearing dresses in the summer. They’re easy, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. This yellow maxi is gorgeous and would be great for brunch, a backyard party, or dressed up for dinner. For something more casual, this black tank dress is perfect for running errands or a casual lunch. You can wear it with sneakers or sandals.


Make sure you have some go-to accessories too. These metallic sandals can be worn with dresses, skirts, shorts, etc. This straw tote is also very versatile. Take it to run errands, to lunch, or to the beach. I love to have a cute hat and chic sunglasses for hot summer days too.


One other thing I wanted to mention is swimwear. Having swimsuits and coverups you love is important. I linked some great swimsuits that are on sale at Shopbop right now.
