1.White T-Shirts- I have a ton of these in my closet and wear them all the time. I have everything from an expensive Theory T-shirt to those Hanes V-neck undershirts you can get at Target for $10 for a pack of 4. White always looks nice on tanned skin and goes with just about anything in my closet.
2.Khaki Shorts- Paired with a white shirt, I have the beginning of my summer go-to outfit that I just about live in. My favorite are the J.Crew Chino shorts () , they come in all different lengths and are always in style.
3. Statement Necklaces- a bright chunky necklace like these three just add the finishing touch to a plain old khaki shorts and white t-shirt.
4.Cross-body bag- I love the shape and color of this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. It goes with black or brown, gold or silver and you really can’t go wrong with it. It doesn’t fit within the $50 budget (sorry about that) but it’s a bag that you will use over and over again. While I don’t have this exact bag (they don’t make the one I have anymore) you better believe I will be buying this one when my current bag kicks the bucket.
5. Jack Rogers- Classic sandals that are comfortable and have been around forever. Hey, anything that Jackie O wore you really can’t go wrong with. Most importantly they go with a white t-shirt and khaki shorts like a dream J (Oops, these aren't in the $50 budget either. But I swear they will last more then two summers and if you divide the $96 price by 2 then you have less then $50 per summer)
6. Orange toenail polish- Since its sandal season I always make sure my tootsies are polished with bright color. Nothing makes me happier then seeing a fresh pedicure when I look down at my feet. I love the colors A Good Man-darin Is Hard to Find and On the Same Paige.
