Summer Style Essentials

Earlier this year I shared my 2015 Style Inspiration and a few months later I posted about my Spring Style Wish List. Since it's no longer spring and I have moved to a new location (with a new climate), I thought it was about time I share a little update. Not only do I enjoy writing these posts, they also motivate me to stay on top of my style goals which help me feel awesome and confident in what I'm wearing!

This season, I have been all about loose tops and t-shirts, light layers, distressed boyfriend shorts (and all denim really), neutral colors and soft tones, and subtle patters. If this sounds familiar, it's probably because that is always what I am all about (my style rarely changes).

Here is a little comparison of my lists as the year has progressed:

As you can tell, I have quite a bit to go but I have already noticed a huge (positive) change in my wardrobe since adding the few items that I have. Of course, some of these items I have been working on over time (like tops), and some I have combined (structured handbag & grey handbag). It's always nice to slowly update your closet and acquire quality pieces that make you feel like a million bucks!
