I've been mentally prepared for summer 2021 since well before January 1, but I can't say the same for my wardrobe. In fact, I think my excitement for beach days and dinners alfresco has taken over my focus so much that I have yet to actually prepare my wardrobe for any of these occasions. I'm a bit behind but catching up very quickly.
One of the first places I always look for new seasonal must-haves is Scoop, available exclusively at Walmart. I've shared my love for the brand too many times to count, but I can't help it—there's simply no better selection of on-trend pieces at affordable prices. The summer collection is so affordable that you only need $100 for each of my favorite fifteen outfits. Yes, you read that right.
In case you haven't been paying attention, bubblegum pink is the color trend everyone is talking about right now. This lightweight dress is a great place to start.
This outfit is proof that blazers can and should be worn outside of an office—with denim shorts and a band tee to be exact.
I came for the baby-blue flutter-sleeve top, and I stayed for that vacation-ready net bag. Both are equally dreamy.
I'm a big fan of easy summer dresses that can be accessorized with just about any shoe. I have a feeling I'll wear this one with sneakers and chunky slides.
Speaking of easy dresses, this one is perfect for transitioning from my aforementioned beach day to alfresco dinner.
I may or may not work out in this matching tie-dye set, but I need it in my life nonetheless.
The tie-dye fabric makes this band tee feel very on-trend and summer-ready.
I'm so ready for fun summer colors and patterns, starting with this tile-printed jumpsuit. I love the way it's dressed up with raffia block heels.
This outfit is an example of how to use accessories to take an outfit to the next level. A yellow chain-link bag and candy-colored jewelry? Count me in.
I'm 100% convinced that an all-black outfit is guaranteed to look chic. This knit-tank-and-midi-skirt set is proof in case you needed any.
Another very different matching set that I'm equally into. This one is giving me weekend picnic vibes.
Another blazer outfit that expertly walks the line of casual and polished. (Side note: I'm betting this tank will be the number-one worn item in your closet this summer.)
A puff-sleeve top, flat sandals, and straight-leg jeans always make a winning outfit combo.
I'd ideally wear this palm-printed dress on a vacation in Hawaii, but I'll settle for something a bit more low-key (and local) for now.
While I'm very eager to wear on-trend outfits outside of my house, it doesn't mean I don't still want something cute for hanging out indoors. This tie-dye set shall do the trick.
