Chicago has a very funny way of making us wait for summer weather so, at this point, I am definitely ready for some freaking sun rays. And not just sun rays, but summertime fashion. I am so over my cold weather clothes. I need sun dresses, wide-brimmed hats and bathing suits. Immediately. Every change of season, I try to go through my closet and get rid of pieces I don’t wear. Honestly, it is actually really hard for me to do that. I hold on to my shit. I always think, “even though I haven’t worn this in years, maybe this summer is the summer I wear this somewhat ugly piece I wore that one time…in 2013.” But this year was different. This change of season I purged. I have donated almost five big bags of clothes and I couldn’t be happier about doing so. It feels so fresh to have a closet full of all things I will actually wear. Plus, it has made a bit of space for wardrobe necessities. With the hot Chicago months mere weeks away and a few poolside and beach vacations on the horizon, I need to add some vibrancy to my summer clothes. ASOS is one of my favorite spots to online shop. It has everything. In other words, it’s like killing ten birds with one stone. I have a ton on my wish list, but since I can’t get it all (damn it), I’ll go ahead and share some of my top pieces from sandals and totes, to cover-ups and poolside beauty needs. Grab your wallets ladies, we’re going summer shopping!

But what cheesy, yet perfectly appropriate, make up bag should you put that all in?
I am all about playful iPhone covers these days. My current one is a rubber unicorn. It’s amazing. Here are some that will have you having poolside vibes on the daily.
I am worshiping these sandals. Worshiping.
Cover-up time! You have to remember that a cover-up is part of the entire ensemble, it’s solidifies the whole look. Here are some of my favs:
More of a t-shirt and cut-off jean shorts type of cover up girl? I’ve got you covered. (No pun intended.)
Let’s add some accessories to your bad ass beach-going get up:
And, for the main event, your bathing suit;
But, hold up! What are you going to sit that cute butt of yours on? How about this bad ass beach blanket?
