Summer Essentials

2:28:00 PM

Hello summer, oh how have I missed you! How have you guys been spending the summer of 2016? Have you started going to the beach and making memories with your friends and family or are you still spending it in front of your laptop with your favorite TV show? I know that I have mostly been doing the second one, but as really hot and sunny weather approaches (today has been a perfect beach day), I have decided to get up and get going! So, here are some of my favorite summer essentials, that I feel are needed for a perfect summertime!

 


1. Perfect summer dress

First and kind of an obvious one  is finding the cutest summer dress! You have so many prints and designs to choose from, so it can't be an easy choice, right? I love floral and navy print for all of my summer dresses, but I have recently picked up this one from Bershka and I just love it! It is a shorter, button-up denim one, it has a collar and the bottom is a lovely light wash design. I really like wearing it, as it looks very well put together and it is perfect for lazy summer days or even on an evening out with some cute accessories.



2. A sun hat

I have struggled to find a cute sun hat for quite some time, as I felt they just did not suit me and I thought I looked funny wearing them. But when I stumbled across this one, on a shopping spree with my mom, I just had to get it! It is a typical sun hat or a fedora as they are popularly called. It goes perfect with any outfit, especially with adorable summer dresses and bikinis on the beach. Sun hats are a top essential for me, because they are as fashionable as they are handy! Also, apart from sun hats, a big trend this year are baseball caps, so you can pick whichever you prefer.




3. Sunglasses

Sunglasses for summer, need I say more? A staple piece in any girl's closet that completes and gives an extra little something to every outfit. Sunnies are just the best and there are so many too choose from, from bigger to slightly smaller, Lenon, Ray Ban and gorgeous, but slightly pricier ones from Dior, Miu Miu, Prada, Burberry and many other brands. I have chosen the regular Ray Ban ones and mine have a blue and purple effect.





4. Fun nail polish

One of my favorite parts of summer is getting to paint my nails all different, bright and fun nail polish colors! Also, I love watching youtube tutorials on how to get unique nail designs. A few of my favorite nail colors for this year are: white,bright pink, orange, darker red and blue tones :)






5. An amazing book

In one of my previous posts, Favorite Summer Reads I explained how much I loved reading, especially now as I have a lot of free time on my hands. I have so many wonderful books to read this summer, but the one I always go back to has to be Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. Girl Online is so lovely and a perfect summer read by the beach or the pool.



6. Notebook or journal to write your memories in

A nice idea I want to try out this summer is to write down all of my memories in a journal or diary. That way I'll have a sort of a memory box to put all of my special moments in and cherish them forever. Also I'll be using it to write down my new blog post ideas and notes.



These were all of my ultimate summer essentials! They were more towards fashion and lifestyle, as for beauty they would be a good sun cream, I don't go anywhere without it! I hope you guys have enjoyed this post and leave your essentials in the comments. F. Scott Fitzgerald said: '' And so, with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar feeling that life was beginning over again with summer '' and I couldn't agree more! Let's have an unforgettable summer. Love, M xx


Lots of Love xx

  3. I am in love with this post! So far, I have found a perfect summer dress- it's black and has daisies "painted" on, with a cinched in waist and a tie up back. It suits me so well, I know I'll be basically living in it all summer. I really need to get my hands on a floppy hat, as I think they are too cute for the hotter months! xx
