Summer staples are so important, y’all! I like having a few dedicated staples each summer that I can just grab and go when plans change or something comes up. Summer plans can happen and change so quickly. Hey want to go to the pool? Hey everyone is hanging out in our backyard right now, where are you? I’m bored, want to go sit on a patio somewhere and drink margs? These aren’t planned events so usually you just have to grab something to wear quickly and head out the door. And in the summer if my friends are all over at someone’s house, I don’t like wasting time by trying to pick out an outfit or trying to fix my hair or put on makeup, so I’ll just grab something easy and either put on a hat or tie up my hair with a head scarf and be done so I can have more play time!
During the summertime, I keep the same summer staples on repeat and will just throw on the same outfit I wore yesterday and head out the door. If I have a brunch with mom on Monday, a cookout at the neighbor’s house on Tuesday, a backyard hangout sesh at the in-laws’ on Wednesday, running errands on Thursday, and happy hour on Friday, you better believe I’m wearing the same denim shorts, brown sandals, white top, and fedora or hair scarf to every event! Do you think that is resourceful or just lazy? 😉
So here’s what makes up my summer staples arsenal:
Of course, I’ll have more than one of each item so I’m not sweating in the same pair of denim shorts for a week straight. But having a few options for each staple item is always a good plan in the summer since it is so hot and most summer activities take place outside!
Usually in the summer, I’ll also carry a swimsuit around in my purse or leave one in my car in case some unexpected pool plans pop up and I can just go straight there from wherever I’m at! And it’s also super helpful to carry a hair scarf around so if I’m at the pool and we want to go grab some food or go sit on a patio and drink margs, I can just pull my hair back and tie a hair scarf on or tie it around a messy bun and not look like I have pool hair!
