As we head into the month of May, there's no doubt I already have summer on my mind. The idea of some downtime by a pool, weekend trips to the beach, warm sunset strolls, and alfresco cocktails with close friends have me excited to my core—especially after such a trying past year.

With this in mind, today I've put together an epic affordable shopping guide for every summer occasion ahead. Whether you're putting together a picnic, enjoying a summer barbeque, or getting out into the great outdoors for a sweat session, take a peek below at some fun and chic outfit ideas for the warm days ahead. And the best part? You don't have to spend a fortune to supercharge your summer wardrobe. All my picks are under $100.
