Y’all know I’m all about some good affordable summer basics. They’re basically the only pieces a wear. So today, I’m sharing some of my absolute favorites.

Okay, that hiatus was WAY longer than I had expected. Aka I was only planning on taking a day or two off from blogging due to us BUYING A HOUSE but whoa time flew by! With last week’s trip to Winston-Salem Thursday-Saturday and moving Sunday, the days had passed before I even realized it. So one week and three days later, I’m finally back with a new post!
If you’re still shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (only have till August 4th) be sure to check out my recent posts: 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Session, The BEST of the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and My 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Ten Picks.
If you’re over the sale, let’s move on to today’s post, shall we? And today’s post is ALL about summer because HELLO it is still summer and 90+ degrees every day. Therefore, I honestly can’t even think about going outside in a sweater, jacket, coat, scarf, or any of that stuff from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Give me tanks, sandals, straw pieces, and easy living!
If you’ve been following along with my looks this summer – whether it’s here on Louella Reese or on IG you’ve definitely seen the tank from today’s post several times as well as this linen muscle tank. They’ve been my go to tops for the past month or so and there’s no sign of that slowing down.
The reason for that, they’re super comfortable, super lightweight and breathable, and look great tucked into just about everything. Aka they’re the perfect basic pieces! Oh and they’re both under $30.
Affordable Summer Basics – Tops
Typically come summer I’m all about skipping the pants. No pants party for me haha. however this year, this pair of wide leg crop pants has totally changed the game. I actually reach for them more often than dresses now. A great pair of wide leg crop pants allow you to create so many different looks – casual like today’s or a little more dressed up when paired with wedges and a blouse.
Aside from wide leg crop pants, some other great basic bottoms are denim cut off shorts, linen shorts, denim skirt, and boyfriend jeans (if you’re into wearing jeans in the summer).
