Hi everyone! Today’s roundup post is all about summer casual-wear.
In case you missed my last post, I featured some of the pieces I’m loving for work right now, and I thought it would be nice to do a follow-up for weekend looks that don’t break the bank. This is why affordable retailers like Target have become my go-to at the start of each season; I know I’ll find great pieces at really affordable prices that work alongside my wardrobe staples. You can check out my post about how to elevate your personal style here.
Finding clothes that will keep you cool, looking good, and staying on budget can be challenging, so today’s roundup is all about casual wear that does just that. Read on to see some of my current favorites and how I styled them. Many of them are paired with wardrobe investment pieces that carry me from season to season.

This peplum tank (above) is perfect for summer! It can be dressed up or down and comes in this washed-burgundy color, white, and teal. I wore it to my son’s pre-K graduation this past week paired with cropped navy slacks and heels. The lace details are so on-trend and really pretty.
Embroidery is EVERYWHERE right now, this white peplum tank has the most darling embroidery details. Plus, I love the light-weight, flowy fabric–it’s great for hot summer days. I paired it with my favorite denim shorts (they have the BEST stretch) and neutral sandals. I admit, the shorts and sandals are pricey, but since they are summer staples, I justified the splurge!
This is the perfect white tee for summer! The swing-shape cut makes it flowy so it’s less likely to stick to you in the summer heat, and the fabric is a nice blend that elevates this classic white top. I love it paired with a druzy quartz pendant necklace. I ordered my usual size small.
The key is to select pieces that complement the items you already own. Be sure to pick up a few accessories to elevate your style. You’ll be weekend-ready in no time!
Thanks for stopping by!
