Am I the only one who doesn’t splurge on summer fashion?

Yes, I love the sun and the beach, but summer styles never really do it for me! Because of that I never really splurge on pieces for my summer wardrobe. Anytime I invest in a pricey bathing suit or cover-up I end up cringing the moment they are covered in sand, sweat, and sunscreen!

So I decided to round-up my favorite budget summer styles today. Each one of these pieces are under $45, easy to style and won’t leave you with buyer’s remorse when the sand, sweat, and sunscreen hits them.
