Shorts: Topshop | Top:  Vince Camuto | Flip Flops: Tory Burch | Tote: Street Level

It’s been insanely hot & humid in Texas lately and I have a feeling it may only get worse. With summer here, I wanted to talk about key summer wardrobe necessities to help you survive this heat.

1. White Shorts: a good pair of white shorts are a must for this year. I believe you’ll get a good wear out of them since they go with everything. I am very very picky when it comes to shorts – the length, the material, etc needs to be perfect. I ordered a these and these to choose from since Nordstrom has free shipping and returns. I love the length of the topshop version but the material of the Articles of Society shorts. I wish I could combine them but I decided to go with these for this summer!

2. Chambray: I always get good use out of chambray this time of year. The material is so light weight that helps breathe during those summer nights. It’s also a piece that makes you look put together but literally you can throw it on out the door. This top is one of my favorites with its cutaway shoulders and insanely soft chambray material.

3. Flip Flops: Everyone needs grab & go flip-flops and these out my absolute favorite. They are perfect for any casual summer outfit and I always get my money’s worth from them. Especially since they are the only flip flops I invest in yearly. I also love the new colors that have been released this year! A good pair of flippers is always a good idea.

4. Tote: a basic tote bag is perfect to run from one summer activity to another. Being able to stuff sunscreen, your shoes, towels, extra change of clothes, etc is very important. I also would advise a basic not so expensive bag ,like this, one since summer activities do get messy. I have been ordering this reversible tote for years and love them so much!

So there you have it! White shorts, chambray top, flip flops, and a tote bag are my top Nordstrom necessity for summer that I plan on wearing all stinking summer!

Thanks for stopping by Buttercups- happy hump day!
