Summer is the season to let loose and relax. It’s a great time to catch up with some movies, books and your tan. To truly get the most out of this hot season, you’ll need the essentials. Here are my Top 5 must-have items for this summer.
1. A Great Swim Suit
Summertime promises long days by the pool or beach side soaking up some natural vitamin D. It’s also a time to show some skin. Make sure to get a great bathing suit that you feel comfortable in and flatters your figure. If you enjoy your swimsuit, you’ll have a better time in whatever outdoor summer activity you are participating in.

2. An Entertaining Book
Most networks play rerun or old movies during the summer, making it a perfect time to get lost in an entertaining book. Thanks to books like Harry Potter and the Twilight series, reading became en vogue again. I am currently reading a book titled Shanghai Girls by Lisa See about two sisters in the 1930s overcoming troubled at times and adversity. I’m hooked.

3. A Summer Hat
Whether a big floppy or a small, but cute fedora, hats are a great summer accessory to any outfit. Not only do they complete an overall look, but they block your pretty face from the harsh sun. You can find all kinds of affordable hats at Target, Old Navy and Stein Mart.
4. Maxi Dresses
If you haven’t got on the maxi dress train yet, you are missing out! The flowy and summery dresses are flattering and feminine. They are also great when you want to wear a dress but didn’t get time to shave! Maxi dresses are also an affordable overall look.

5. Wedge Sandals
Summer is a great time to ditch the boots and wear sandals. Although sandals are cute and comfortable, they don’t help us who are vertically challenged. Wedge sandals provide both comfort and height and take any casual outfit up a notch. Many retailers have taken the wedge sandal to a whole new level by adding prints and bold colors. Make sure to get a pair, or two, or three!
