The first official day of summer was last week, and we're celebrating by perfecting our list of the essential, must-have items on our summer shopping list.

We've narrowed it down to nine summer staples, so you'll be 100% prepared for the season.

Now, some things are no-brainers -- you obviously can't head to the beach or pool without a trusty pair of classic flip-flops (neutral colors accepted, neons preferred).

Speaking of color, we're not sure where we would be if our nail polish arsenal wasn't fully stocked and ready for biweekly pedicures. A few new hues will definitely be in order, and you can find our favorite in the gallery above.

There's plenty more essential goodies you'll want to check out too. Click through the gallery to see our full list of picks!
