Hi Friends, I hope you all had a great week and are ready for the Summer. I have finally put away all my winter gear and I am so excited!!! "Yay!" We have a very short summer in the state of Minnesota and we do all we can to enjoy it to the fullest while it lasts. I looked through my closet and noticed that these items are highly needed this Summer. Mind you, this is not an exhaustive list and this list would not work for everyone but it works for me and I just wanted to share. You will know that the flats or sandals are not on this list but those are essentials that should already be in your closet from the time of Adam….:-)


If you live in a cold and arid region like I do you will know that the cardigan is one  clothing item that you can never really do without. It suddenly turns cold in the evenings in the Summer time and a pretty, durable cardigan in a summery color is a must have for those times when the Summer temperature takes a nose dive.

Trench Coat:

So, if we can have the cardigan for summer, a cute trench coat would also be needed right?.:-) The trench coat is a stylish outer wear that can be worn the whole year through to keep warm or just to look stylish and cool in one of those visits to the movie theatre or those indoor events where the AC is jacked up and you can not adjust the thermostat because you are not in your own home..:-)

Silk Scarf: 

The silk scarf serves almost the same purpose as the trench coat and the cardigan and it can also be used just for accessorizing an outfit.

Statement Necklace:

A bold necklace is needed to accessorize those summer dresses and since the entire winter and spring was all about the winter scarfs and snoods, a statement necklace is a nice replacement.

Denim Shirt:

The denim shirt is trending this summer. It can be worn over slacks and shorts when there is need to dress down for that walk in the park or family gathering and can also be paired with a nice skirt and great heels when there is a need to dress up.

Wedge Pumps:

We all know that Summer is all about events and conventions right? If you are invited to a formal occasion that is going to stretch for hours, then the wedge pump is a "must have." Wedges are trending and in style and you also get to give your feet a break.

Statement Print Pumps:

Printed shoes always are on trend every summer; and the prints can be floral, animal prints, dots or stripes. It is that pumps that can be worn with a dress to that summer wedding and to add to the fun, you can always switch out the statement pumps for the statement sandals when you need to give the feet some tlc.

Bold Color Pumps: 

The pointed toe pumps in a very beautiful hue can accessorize that pair of jeans or shorts for a day out with friends or with the family. The bold color hue is a nod  to the beautiful colors seen  outdoors.

Sling back sandals:

Sandals do not have to be open toed all the time and they also do not have to be flats. The sling back is midway between the pumps and the regular sandals and can be worn to work or those formal events in the summer time. It can also transition to that less formal office event or outdoor party. Color blocking is still trending this summer so, having an item like a pair of shoes or a clutch in color blocking hue is a chic way of wearing the trend without having to dress in color block outfits.
