Living in Florida, it’s easy to transition our wardrobes from spring to summer.
But you still need to update your wardrobe. Running around chasing kids not only wears you out but also your clothes. I’m sure there are holes in tees and stains from deodorant that you didn’t plan on. Also, wearing sunscreen takes a toll on your clothes, especially bathing suits and cover-ups.
It’s time for some fashion scoop.
Here are 8 Summer Wardrobe Essentials for your closet.
#1. SUMMER DRESSES
The perfect summer dress is a must for your summer wardrobe. When getting ready for all of that summer fun, you’ll want that easy throw on and go dress in your closet. This Sunny Day Dress from Free People is timeless and will be perfect for a pool party, BBQ or going out in the evening.

Shopping for a swimsuit is truly one of the most excruciating things to do. My body type is much better in a bikini, but some of us want a one-piece. The London Stripe Ruffled Swimsuit from Ted Baker is classic with an added trend. The vertical stripes will elongate your torso and have everyone asking you where you found. Tell them you saw it on Local Mom Scoop.
Note: Use a self-tanner a day before going.

#3. CAFTANS AND COVER-UPS
One piece of your summer wardrobe that is often forgotten is a caftan or a cover-up to wear over your swimsuit. I’m not one to parade this muffin top around the pool area, so I always have a few cover-ups for trips or just staying local. I love the crochet lace-panel on this Caftan from Charo Ruiz .

Crocheted Tote Bags are a huge trend for the summer. I’m loving the colors in this one and it’s perfect for the Bahamas, the Hamptons or Newport.
SHOP MORE HANDBAGS
I live in my Tory Burch Monroe Leather Thong Sandals. They are pretty much a wardrobe staple for year around.
SHOP MORE SHOES
You can never have enough tops in your summer wardrobe. One must-have is a white tee and this Ruffled Sleeve Tee from Sundry is an updated look too with shorts or denim.
SHOP MORE TOPS
I have a hard time finding sunglasses to fit me. I’m really obsessed with my Ray-Ban Aviator Flash Lenses that I’ve been wearing for over a year. But it’s time to find a new pair and these Clubmaster acetates from Ray-Ban are a nice change.
SHOP MORE GLASSES
Summers in Boca Raton, you just can’t have enough shorts. I just became a huge Vineyard Vines fan and these Cotton Chambray Shorts are perfect for your summer wardrobe.
