The 5 Items You Need for Summer 17

I am on a mission to make Summer 17 the most lit summer ever. I can’t say what the plan is exactly but I know it involves plenty of sun, late nights, and bottles of rosé. Doing all of that, and then some, requires a flawless wardrobe. Well, maybe not flawless but my current situation could use a few upgrades to get it in summer shape. Check out these 5 Summer 17 must haves I’ll be copping to get ready for the most epic summer of my life. No pressure you know.

Pool Slides

I despise flip-flops, with all my heart. I cannot stand the thong rubbing between my toes all day, wearing me down. Instead of slipping into the pool shoes from hell all summer, I roll with slides. If you follow me on Instagram you know how much I love my Fenty x Puma faux fur slides. I’m also a fan of the Fenty x Puma bow slides that I can’t find anywhere in my size. When it comes to the actual pool though I keep it simple and go for a pair of classic Adidas slides.

Off -The-Shoulder Everything

Something about an off the shoulder top really speaks to the Southern Belle in me.  By Southern Belle, I mean the kind who wore knee-high boots under her deb ball dress for prom. You know more Blanche Devereaux and less Scarlett O’Hara.

Bralettes combine my two favorite things, underwear as outerwear and crop tops. They also make me think of Jennifer Lopez as Selena in all her 90s glory going live on stage in a bedazzled bra. Thankfully there isn’t a sequin in sight on this summer’s bralettes, but that doesn’t make them any less show-stopping.


Just because I don’t retire my black outfits when the temperature rises, doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate all white in summer. In fact, all white is the ultimate summer black. If summer black was bleached white and came in breezy, airy fabrics.

One-piece Swimsuits

* You all know I’m a Kardashian stan so I had to do it, thick lies and all. 

I have been team bikini since before I can remember, but this season’s crop of one-piece suits has me reconsidering. Who knows, I may even trade in my teeny, weeny string bikini for a Baywatch style high cut suit.
