I’m also sharing what’s at the top of my summer essentials list. Find tons of options in the boutique below. Also, I’m including all of the 4th of July sales with discount codes. Shop online and save!

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. If you like your shorts to be a little bit longer then I recommend these denim shorts. I also like to have a pair of white shorts for some variety.

Summer Tops & Tees

Next, tops and tees are a must. It’s good to have a classic crew neck tee for everyday wear. I also love to wear a classic V-neck tees or cotton tank top during the summer. For something more dressy, you’ll love this ruffle tank or this ruffle V-neck.

Summer Dresses

I love wearing dresses in the summer. They’re easy, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. This puff sleeve midi dress is gorgeous and would be great for brunch, a backyard party, or dressed up for dinner. For something more casual, this jersey T-shirt dress is perfect for running errands or a casual lunch. You can wear it with sneakers or sandals. I have a variety of summer dress options in the boutique below.


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. For dressing up, don’t forget a chic pair of statement earrings.


One other thing I wanted to mention is swimwear. Having swimsuits and coverups you love is important. I love this white one-piece swimsuit for summer. It pairs really well with this adorable romper cover-up. The romper can be worn over a suit or even as a casual summer outfit.

 If you still need an outfit for the holiday, be sure to look at this blog post. I hope you have a relaxing weekend! We’ll be low-key and hanging by the pool. Have a great 4th of July weekend!
