T he one thing you must have in your closet before summer arrives are your basic fashion staples.  Hats, bodysuits, cutoff shorts and booties have been my go-to summer wardrobe for as long as I can remember.  Maybe it’s the onset of festival season in late spring, or the bohemian flair, but I love summer desert looks.

I go to Palm Springs quite a few times a year and always plan for a photo-op.  If I weren’t a blogger I might not take as many photos, but when you love something you have to share it.  Since I’ve been hard at work on launching my own clothing brand this fall, spending money isn’t an option.  One good thing about not splurging on new clothes is reinventing outfit inspiration from wardrobe pieces you forgot you had.  I found this fringe vest that I hadn’t worn in 5 years and decided it was time to bring it out of hiding.  Naturally I fell back in love with it the second I put it on and had to blog about it.

Fringe is one style that is becoming a summer staple.  Each year I see more and more girls wearing this statement piece I once thought was only a trend.  I love frindge paired with short shorts and booties.  The girly-girl in my really likes it on-top of a sundress.  If you are into fringe find your unique spin on this look and rock it because fringe is a must summer staple.

The key is to find your fashion basics and mix and match them with new and old pieces.  You don’t have to spend money on an entire new wardrobe for summer to look this good.  You just need a few hours in your closet to reinvent what you already have.
