Get ready, LA peeps, because summer's steadily on its way. Sure, it still gets chilly at night, but as the days start to heat up you might consider whipping out something more than cut-offs and a tank top. Scroll down for a look at some of the cutest new summer-ready arrivals from some of our favorite LA shopping spots and add to your warm weather wardrobe.

Grab a pair of the cutest Common Projects 'Slip On In' perforated leather sneakers in summer-ready white from the ultimate LA shopping destination, Creatures of Comfort. You'll be living in these.

No one does a breezy, super feminine jumpsuit quite like Reformation, and the 'Frankie' is sure to become your go-to weekend or event look — take your pick from the delightful pastel colors available. Cannes meets Cali anyone?

One of the newest silhouettes from LA-fave handbag and accessories designer Clare Vivier is the slightly boxy 'Ines' shoulder bag in luscious, summery white leather. The rectangular shape is minimal, clean, and perfect for toting around in the heat while still looking chic.

Swap out your regular black sunglasses for an updated, peachy translucent pair from Gogosha Optique. The 'Enzo' is a happy, sunny twist on a classic shape and perfect for a beach day.

Now that NYC staple OAK is an LA hot spot, stop in and stock up on the new 'Basic Tee' in Petal. Available in a variety of hues, we're totally digging the rose-colored tone as a summer essential and loving the easy, boxy cut.
