Can you believe this year is almost half way over?

So weird. Time goes by so fast! I feel like I blink & it’s summertime.

Anyway, it’s almost JUNE!! Which means BBQ season is fast approaching. So let’s get right down to it & discuss attire, shall we?

For me, there are really only FIVE essential Summer BBQ outfit items:

ONE: Gorgeous White Maxi

Honestly, the great thing about this white maxi is you can dress it up or dress it down. So if you show up to a BBQ & your host is all done up like Kyle Richards from Housewives, you’ll be totally fine! Add a leather jacket for some sass.

TWO: Black or Tortoise Sunnies

I don’t go anywhere without oversized sunglasses— the Nanz & I even wear them inside. She thinks it’s fab. Sunglasses are an obvious essential for a BBQ. They especially come in handy after a few glasses of rosé.

THREE: Straw Handbag

Carry your SUNSCREEN in a straw handbag & you’re golden. You’re going to need to reapply throughout the day, ESPECIALLY if you’re down to get in the pool. I also like to bring water, watermelon jerky, a phone charger ( hey Mophie ), & a few other items, so a bag is 100% essential. Great to throw all your shit into really.

FOUR: Striped Slip-ons 

Slip-ons are a chic summer addition. Heels at the pool are just way too much, but that’s me. These are cute, comfy, & best of all, EASY.

FIVE: Rad Silver Choker

Accessories!! I’m loving chokers lately. Has to be the right one though.

BTW guys, Michael is taking me on a surprise B-DAY trip & I still have NO IDEA where we’re going. Follow along on Snapchat, hopefully he did good? We’ll see. Username is @laurynevarts.


  • Living in SF, I always also bring a sweater or a leather jacket to throw on over my sundresses. You never know when the fog is going to roll in!

  • Love the white maxi and TOTALLY know the exact outfit you’re talking about that Kyle wore hahaha!

  • Love those striped shoes. It has gotten so hot here lately (I live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia) and I am DYING for more summer clothes. My work wardrobe is melding in with my outside-of-work wardrobe (not down for that), so it’s about time to look for some new summer pieces. I also love that maxi dresses are so versatile!
