Hi friends, happy Monday! Things were a little light around here last week – apologies for that. I think the summer lazies are already getting the best of me. Can you believe summer is here?! I’m determined to make the absolute most of my favorite season (including a week of pool time that starts today – hit up Instagram Stories for some sneak peeks of my wine country getaway) so I’ve pulled together the ultimate wish list of Apt34 curated summer essentials. Scroll down to find every thing you need to get max enjoyment and a good deal of style in the next couple months!

Summer is all about a mix of easy casual style, that’s elevated just enough. Think a step above shorts and flip flops. The secret is all in the accessories. A good hat. Sweet slides. A killer set of sunnies. With just a few simple pieces, I consider my summer capsule wardrobe complete.

I always crave all things white and woven this time of year. While I’m certainly not going to be spending the next few months at an all-white dream house (like this one or this one), I figure that if I bring in one or two of these pieces into my house it might start to feel a little more serene.

While my feet might not be hitting the sand much this summer, I’m going to look for every opportunity I can find to bring a little more relaxation into my world. I hope you do too.

  1. Just FYI, I can’t get any of your archive links to work – like if I click travel, or beauty, or recipes I just get a page that says “Gimme More” and that link doesn’t work (this is on chrome from a desktop). So no looking through other summer essentials or popular recipes etc. 🙁 It all seems to be fine from my phone but I’d rather look at the pretty pictures from a desktop!
