Summer Essentials – Top 8 Must-Haves

45

 

Happy Friday readers!

Spring is here and you know what that means! Summer is near! The warmer weather just makes life better. We can’t be friends if you disagree with that – ok just kidding! Well a little. With all my excitement for summer on its way I had to round-up all the items and style that will be on repeat in my wardrobe all season. Having key pieces in different colors, sizes, patterns, textures etc. is a great way to establish your own style. You’re mixing it up, but at the same time you’re staying true to your style.  This is how the world will know that this is your uniform. With that said, see my round-up of this Summer’s wardrobe.

Simply Said

Keeping it simple with some ripped denim, a white structured top and nude pointed toe pumps. I have to admit, I’m becoming a bit obsessed with nudes and neutral tones. It simple, chic and can actually make your outfit look expensive. Nudes go with anything, so you can easily mix and match the same pieces to create your personal uniform. Style Tip: When in doubt, wear nude. I’m also a huge fan of pairing the not so obvious pieces together – like I did here with a more dressier top and ripped denim. This top was actually purchased back in 2011 from Zara and I ‘ve kept it in good condition because it’s one of my favourite pieces. Boxy tops like this are still in and is actually a classic piece because you can use this to build with other pieces in your wardrobe. Also, white is still going strong and again another hit for Spring, as seen on the SS15 runways.

Casually Cool

Summer is here and my sandals are out! This season a huge trend are slip ons – dress them up or dress them down, they just make your outfit look super easy. I personally love these hot items because I can skip the heels and easily slip them on for an all day pool party. It does a great job in toning down an overly sexy bikini to create the right balance between sexy and cool.

Also when you think of a pool or patio event white is the colour that often comes to mind. If you’re a complete brand obsess chick, definitely check out the Birkenstocks, if not, Zara’s affordable version are great too. Top is from Suzy Shier, Skinnies are H&M, Sandals are from Ardene. The handbag is one of my best buys from Value Village. See outfit details below.
