We all have those classic standbys we find ourselves reaching for again and again without fail.

Here are a few of my¬† summer staples…

1. Button down shirt: in chambray or crisp white; pair it with a pencil skirt to the office, shorts on the weekend, or over a bikini at the beach

2. Lightweight scarf: for cool summer nights or to jazz up a plain white tee

3. Turquoise jewelry: nothing looks better with a tan, especially if paired with #6

4. Striped shirt: goes with anything and will make you look instantly more chic

5. Straw tote: the perfect beach/market bag

6. Little white dress: summer’s answer to the LBD

7. Signature cocktail: The Dark n’ Stormy is my summer drink of choice.
Recipe: pour 4-5 oz ginger beer over ice, top with rum and a squeeze of lime. Garnish with a spear of candied ginger.

8. Punchy polish: Essie’s Clambake and Splash of Grenadine are my current favorites

9. Shorts: J.Crew 4″ are my go-to. The brighter the better!

10. Goes with anything sandal: Jack Rogers are the gold standard

What are your summer staples? I’d love to know what you would add to my list!

  1. My husband introduced me to Dark and Stormy’s in Bermuda. I will always remember sitting in the beautiful Elbow Beach Bar on the beach while the staff was preparing for a hurricane. Which thankfully never came!

  2. Linen pants, bright colored jewelry, LL Bean Boat and Totes, Stephen Bonanno monogrammed sandals, fun toenail polish, and Lilly Pulitzer dresses!!

    LOVE that scarf, btw!!
