At the start of every season, I check into J. Crew and Madewell to stock up on the basics. This season is exceptional for great style and value. Summer staples seem to wear out from so much washing and wearing so stock up on these amazing values before they are gone. Here my top ten for the season

  1. Great pair of White Jeans
  2. Perfect White Linen Shirt
  3. Mid Calf Floral Dress
  4. Bathing Suit & Cover Up
  5. Sun Hat
  6. Tote Bag
  7. New Sunglasses
  8. Everyday Sandals
  9. High Wedges
  10. Statement Earrings

This is a great everyday look for walking or pedaling around town early while getting things done. The Toothpick Jeans (#1) have the perfect silhouette for pairing with flats or a higher heel. Great fit! And am thrilled to find the perfect White Linen Shirt (#2) on sale. And will enjoy the comfort of the stylish Everyday Sandals (#8). The Round Shades (#7) are just the right size for wearing with the Sun Hats (#7) with ties to secure in place.

Yep, I have a tricycle. Love the basket which holds everything – and the fact that I am not going to fall over!

Bathing Suit and Cover Up (#4) is high on the list and I ran into this fabulous print to mix and match. I often swim in a rashguard but will leave the two piece suits to others, while I enjoy the comfort and support of a one piece. The ruffles are so feminine. A cover up is most essential.
