5 Summer Wardrobe Essentials Your Closet And Instagram Need Right Now

It always shocks me how busy I am come summertime. The days seem to escape me quicker than I can untag myself from bad Facebook photos, and let's be real we all have the same three outfits on repeat.

In order to have an Insta-worthy summer wardrobe that is still highly functional, it's time to bring it back to the basics. Here are my absolute must have five summer wardrobe essentials. Perfect to mix, match, and snap the ideal Insta-worthy selfie in- you're welcome.

1. A solid pair of shorts

It always blows my mind to see how many brands make ill-fitting shorts. It is even more shocking at how many people buy them. Finding a good pair of shorts that are the right length and fit your body is essential to a summer wardrobe that loves you, your busy schedule, and the camera.

2. A one-piece bathing suit

Before you question me, just wait, because I don't think that you realize how versatile a good-one piece really is. A one-piece can be used for family outings, pool parties, water slide adventures, and wait for it, as body suits. That's right, I very frequently use my bathing suits as doubles for bodysuits, and nobody can tell the difference. Stock up ladies because this wardrobe essential is double duty.

3. Flowy collared shirt

This may be just a me thing, but I have been obsessing over lightweight collared shirts. Short sleeve, long sleeve, solid, or striped- I'm probably throwing it on with a pair of boyfriend shorts. They can be dressed up or down, tied in a knot or tucked in- indeed the possibilities are endless.

4. Nice t-shirts

Textured, patterned or pocketed t's are usually part of my "summer uniform" because a nice t-shirt is comfortable and fashion forward. Finding t-shirts that you like create the perfect base for accessories, cute shoes, and the ease of slipping on while running out the door.

5. Shift dresses and rompers

I know that this is a huge overarching category here, but basically, any outfit that does not require you to put together two or more separate pieces of clothing is a holy grail in my book. Because let's be real, sometimes we just do not have the time.

Casual dresses and rompers are super easy to throw on because they're already a complete outfit so by default you look like you put a ton of time into your look- boom summer hack.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
