Alright, for most of you, it is already summer break. I myself am finally on summer vacation as of yesterday. So, let the summer shopping commence! Of course, I have another informative installment from my style guru, Miss Kate. She let me in on what is trending and what is considered the must-have essentials this summer:
As spring turns to summer, I thought a list of summer must-haves are in order. This summer I am all about being in style, while also being extremely comfortable. These looks are perfect and practical for the on the go mom.

Linen is extremely comfortable and lightweight, making it the perfect summer fabric. Lounge pants are a hot trend right now and the best part about them is you feel like you are wearing pajama pants all day. Now, who doesn’t want that?
Along the lines of comfortable material, tunics and blousy white tops/dresses are a timeless piece that can serve multiple purposes. They are suitable for a summer beach day, running errands or cover-up for the pool.
Stripes have been on trend for awhile now and there are so many ways of styling stripes. For summer, opt for a lighter and brighter stripe. Instead of black and white, try a pale blue and white. Not only are lighter colors more appropriate for summer, but they make your summer glow stand out. To play it safe I have a stripe in every category in my closet; a shirt, pants, jumpsuit, dress, shorts, and even light throw over sweater. To say I am obsessed is an understatement. Stripes are a must have for your summer closet and can also be repurposed for the seasons to come.
While shopping for your summer wardrobe, keep in mind colors that are in trend. Pastels are big right now; especially pale pink, blue, and yellow. The colors are bright, fun, and feminine, making you feel in the summer spirit.
Hopefully, this post helps you plan your summer closet and points you towards some of the hottest trends. Fashion is all about comfort in my eyes, making me look forward to this summer season!
