Summer Essential

Last week (while I was still luxuriating in summer weather), a reader asked what my summer essentials are.  Thinking back to last summer, I realized that I basically lived in this Isabel Marant jumpsuit.  This year, Marant made a new (but very similar) jumpsuit that I’ve already begun wearing (and I’m certain I will for the next many months).  It’s so easy and fits such a wide range of occasions that I find seemingly endless excuses to don it.  You can find it in another color here and in a fab romper version that I’m eyeing here.

I’m working on a comprehensive list of my summer essentials, but this jumpsuit is at the top of my list.  What are your summer essentials?

    btw random comment, can you tell me who makes those shoes gabby is wearing? those are perfect camp shoes for p! thx!

      They’re made by a company called Native. They’re rubbery plastic or something that’s great in water, etc. 🙂

      We bought ours last year. It looks like they’re not making them right now or something. Hopefully they’ll be back soon!

  • I was totally going to ask about her pink sneakers too 🙂 They are so cute (as is the jumpsuit). In the summer I live in dresses and flats or sneakers/jeans/tank top.

      That’s so funny! They’re made by a company called Native, and they are really fabulous. 🙂 Your summer uniform sounds perfect. I wear a ton of dresses too (they’re so much easier!).

  • Your jumpsuit is both adorable and chic! I have never considered a jumpsuit, but now am intrigued!

    Have a great day!

      Josephina-
      I think you definitely need a jumpsuit!! They’re so chic and easy for summer. And they look great with a blazer on top too.
