HEY FRIENDS! Omg it has been a WHILE. So happy to be back here and writing this blog post for you today! Summer is quickly approaching over here in Ohio and I have been doing some SERIOUS shopping to prep for the warm weather! Jordan told me there is no way the UPS driver and I aren’t best friends by now since he spends so much time on my porch LOL. I have been doing the research on trends for the season and leg work to find you some cute and solid must haves for this summer! I compiled this list of cute and simple things that I think you will continuously grab when things get warmer! SO. Let’s just jump into it, shall we?


Before you panic because you are iffy on shorts – don’t! I promise I will give you a few options from a few different places that I would recommend! I have a few pairs of denim shorts on a heavy rotation throughout the summer because they are so versatile! You can dress them up (to an extent) by wearing a blouse and some wedges, or dress them down with a t shirt and converse. And let’s be real, if you are going to invest in an item of clothing, you want to make sure it’s an item you will wear over and over again! CLICK HERE to see some recommendations for denim shorts!


For when you need to look chic but are in a little bit of a time pinch! I have been shopping for my girls trip and have found quite a few go to sundresses that I think you will love! I find myself grabbing them when I need something that makes me feel GOOD but doesn’t take too much effort. CLICK HERE to see some sundress recommendations!


Honestly, this should just be a staple in your closet – PERIOD! Nude heels are chic, classic, and go with everything. I literally have three different pairs at three different heights, and I wear them all the time. Depending on the pair you choose, they can be a little bit of an investment in the long run – but they are so worth it. You can CLICK HERE for some shoe recommendations!


In the beginning of summer, layering is key! Find yourself a super cute button up option to throw over tshirts, bathing suits, or wear them by themselves with a cute pair of shorts or a skirt! I swear I have bought 3 button ups in the last few weeks or so LOL. CLICK HERE to take a look at a few button up options!


I am sure if you have been spending any time on Pinterest looking at outfits, you have most definitely noticed that stackable bracelets are super in. I get some of my very faves from a small business called HORSEFEATHERS GIFTS (you can use code BADBIA20 for 20% off!). I have also found some super cute dainty gold bracelets on amazon to pair them with! You can CLICK HERE to view some options!


Bathing suits can be a little bit of a sensitive subject. I get it, I would not step foot into a pool for three summers because I didn’t love how I looked in a bathing suit. But once I found suit that I felt super cute in, it gave me the boost of confidence I needed! First tip, find a bathing suit that looks good on YOU and don’t focus so much on what is “trendy” right now. What are you going to feel the best in? Second tip, think about a color you look great in, and try to find a bathing suit in that color scheme. This will get you started on the right foot!

Don’t get rid of your sweat sets just yet – but know that knit sets are making an appearance this season and DANG there are some super cute ones! These sets are going to be a great versatile option for you to grab. They are cute for lunch dates with your girlfriends and cozy enough for you to curl up at home and binge watch Sex And The City for the 14th time LOL. I have been searching amazon for a few cute ones to try out and with the help of some recommendations from friends, I think I have found some winners! CLICK HERE for a few I have my eye on!

These pieces are pieces you will wear over and over again this summer and I am super confident you will love them! What are some of your summer must haves? I would LOVE to know!!
