My Summer Essentials

Forever 21 carries so many great sundresses that are extremely inexpensive.  This dress is one of several that I've picked up in the last few months.  With a little cardigan or jacket and some flats they are work appropriate but definitely cute enough to wear after hours.  

Say Yes to Hoboken has a Forever 21 sundress round-up that's worth checking out.   Also, via Not Martha, here's a clever article aptly titled "How to shop at discount shops without looking cheap".  

These sandals:

I found these Blowfish sandals on sale at DSW.  They're still available for purchase and you can order them on-line if need be.  They fit true to size and are extremely comfortable.  

These sunglasses:

Up until a few weeks ago, Fred Flare's brick and mortar shop was less than a block away from my apartment.  On my way home from work I stopped by the store because I had forgotten my sunglasses.  These caught my eye immediately.  I wear them nearly every single day.  Fred Flare has a great selection of inexpensive sunglasses, all of which are available to order online on their website.  I would also recommend signing up for their email list as they send out free shipping codes relatively frequently.


I've posted lots of summer hair inspirations and updos.  Joanna Goddard at A Cup of Jo has a ton of really great updo hair tutorials.  You can find all of them here.  

This lip balm:

My friend Amber turned me on to C.O. Bigelow's tinted lip balms.  It gives just the right amount of shine, a little bit of color, and is not sticky like most lip glosses.  I like wearing it alone or with a little bit of lipstick.  Some neutral eye shadow, well lined and mascaraed eyes and you're good to go.
