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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
