Summer Fashion Must-Haves: The Dirty Dozen

Memorial Day – the unofficial kick-off to Summer – is here, bitches! This seasonal change is one of my faves. I’m stoked for outdoor music; fresh, seasonal food; longer days; more energy… but most of all, summer fashion must-haves!

Yeah, I am traditionally a jeans-and-t-shirt kinda gal, but I love me a good maxi dress or trendy statement piece now and then. For me, it’s all about building a wardrobe foundation from the timeless basics, and augmenting it with fun, chic pieces each season.

Here’s what I’m currently obsessing over:

1. Simple Maxi Dress (, $23 {I snagged a similar style at Forever 21}

3. Cross-Body Bag in nude (Wallis), $28

4. Rings with Personality (Kate Spade, C. Wonder), $48, $30

5. Pointy-Toe, Ankle-Strap Flats (Zara), $60
