Yes, summer is about fun in the sun. Still, it’s also a time to recharge your batteries and give yourself some “me” time; whether that be sitting back and watching Netflix, binge watching videos from your favorite YouTubers, laying back to listen to your favorite tunes, or merely pampering yourself with a little self care. Whatever it is, I want you to look and feel your best to make this time to yourself truly amazing! Here are some of my picks:
A Mesh + Lace Cardigan
This is one that I got from Victoria’s Secret who knows how long ago and I still always feel like putting it on! Here’s what I would definitely grab if I didn’t already have this one:
From the brand Natori, this one is so simple and elegant that you just cannot go wrong. Whether you want to wear it at home, to the spa, to a sleepover, or even out on your casual days paired with jeans, this piece serves as the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Lucky you; it’s on sale (from $78 down to just $39)!! Click on the image to shop Natori and get this item!
A Pastel Tank Top
This is one color that I’m absolutely loving for spring and summer. Not quite as bright as the color of the summer sun, but instead subtle enough to channel vibes of the warmth this season brings on. I got this one from Uniqlo, but I’ve also found another amazing one for a great deal:
Guess which brand this is? That’s right, you guessed correctly–it’s GUESS! You absolutely need this item especially if you tend to feel warm in your home, or if you desire that extra “hug” from your clothing! Click on the image to get this for just $34 and to shop the rest of GUESS’ collection!
There’s something about putting on jeans that strikes the perfect balance between “let’s be productive” and “time to relax a bit.” However, when it comes to joggers in specific, the vibe takes on that which is much more relaxed and laid back–making jean looking joggers an essential for your day of laze. I got this one at Urban Outfitters actually! And here’s one you can get just like it, except much more exciting and feminine:
What I like about this Joie pair of joggers is that it looks like military green denim, except it’s totally not. It’s actually made almost 50% of linen! Joie is a great brand to purchase from because their items are among the most comfortable I’ve seen. If there’s anything you should invest in for this summer, it’s definitely this pair of joggers from Joie. Click the image above to cop your pair or to browse the rest of Joie’s comfortable clothes!
A Loose Crop Sweater
This one is from the collab between Juicy Couture x Urban Outfitters and honestly it’s the easiest thing to slip on when I’ve got no clue what to wear but still want to feel my best. I think these are now all sold out, but here’s something similar enough and perhaps even better for staying in the summer spirit:
Isn’t it something your wardrobe is currently lacking? Plus, in the spirit of luxury items, this one is from the brand ALLSAINTS. I think the graphics on it renders it good enough to wear both in the house and out! Who wouldn’t want to wear luxury lounge wear to feel their best, right? If you agree, click on the image and grab this ALLSAINTS crop sweatshirt before it’s gone!
A Simple Slim Cardigan
This is actually something I stole from my mother’s closet a while ago (shh! don’t tell her). I wear it whenever I can’t find a light jacket or outer to match my outfit, or else when I’m wearing a slip dress around the house on my off days. Because I have no clue where it’s from, here’s where you can find it’s identical twin:
Another super cozy and comfy lounge wear item from Natori, this extra long cardigan is sure to be a go to for the rest of your life. I think this is a summer to winter piece because whereas you’d wear it inside the house in the summer, this is something you can definitely step out with in the winter if you pair it correctly, but again this depends on your location and how cold it actually does get in the winter. Even then, it’s a full on year-round luxury piece for inside the home that works on your “me time” days or even when you’re entertaining family or close guests.

All in all, I hope you found these picks helpful and I hope you do take the time this summer to unwind, cleanse your mind, body, and soul, and just give yourself a chance to reset the batteries before the holidays are over. Our mental health and happiness is the single most important thing!
