4 Effortless Ways to Freshen Up Your Summer Basics

We just got back from our Cabo vacay (lots of pics and post to come soon!) and warm weather outfits are heavily on my mind! I’m hoping you girls are ready for tons of Summer Style content because today I’m sharing four effortless ways to freshen up your summer basics!

Summer is all about effortless laid-back styles, and while I know it’s so easy to throw on your basic tee and cut offs, I wanted to share some crazy easy add-ons that will instantly up your summer basics!

1.) Add a POP of Color

At the top of my list is…adding a POP of color! I saw this vibrant Cardi and thought this would be so fun to rock in the Summer. It’s by Halogen and comes in several different colors HERE! I’m sure you girls are familiar with Halogen if you shop at Nordstrom 😉 They have tons of great on-trend basics that are super budget-friendly too! Adding a show-stopping pop of color like this cardi to any  dress or cut off and tee is an easy way to elevate your summer style.

2.) Layer on some Necklaces

Next up, layer on necklaces or add some fun hoops! A little bit of jewelry really does go a long way. I’ve always been a hoop girl and This Pair has been in heavy rotation lately and they’re under $40! (ps I always get asked about my necklace and it’s this one HERE but found a really good look for less HERE)

3.) Trade in Your Sandals for some Comfy Wedges

I am a serious sandals addict (especially while chasing around two little ones) but switching up your flats for some wedges can change the whole vibe of your look. I am OBSESSED with These Wedges and have raved about them to you girls before. You truly won’t find a better more comfortable pair for under $100! They come in several colors HERE.

4.) Finish it off with a Wide Brim

Lastly girls, add that wide brim! Adding a hat to your everyday basics is the quickest way to make you look more pulled together (not to mention helps hide that Day 3 of unwashed mom hair 😉 ). There are so many great ones at Nordstrom right now but I have LIVED in This One for years and it’s $44 ladies!

 Here are a few more of my favorite affordable summer basics from Halogen

I just ordered This Comfy Stretch Dress (perfect with flats for everyday and how flattering does the backside look?!)

This Tee is an everyday summer staple

and I also love This Printed Cardi

  1. LOVE your hair. I don’t think you should worry about it getting too light, since you still have the dark streaks in there. That’s what i love about balayage! 🙂 How long do you wait between color sessions to apply more color?
