In February I posted a blog post with the essentials that got me through winter. I got lots of comments on that post so since Summer is approaching, I thought I should share one about my essentials for Summer! In the past couple of months I started looking for the perfect items to take with me on holiday (Athens & London!). I bought some new things but I also found some things in the back of my closet, which are some definite essentials for this Summer ☀️
Minimalistic Ring: Fleur Caroline € 19,95 | Coin Necklace: Happiness Boutique € 19,90
Most of the time I end my blog posts with mentioning jewelry but this time I thought I would start with it in this post. Finding a statement necklace you like is more difficult than you would think. I think I’ve searched for one for about two years and yes, I finally found one. On this one online store called Happiness Boutique I found this necklace and I love how it looks. It’s not that big of a necklace but it does make a statement. The coins give this necklace a bohemian look, which is perfect for Summer or to wear to festivals. Oh, you should definitely scroll down to the end because I have a little surprise for you… ⭐
Striped Dress: Stradivarius € 15,96
I’ve never been the type to wear dresses. Of course I did wear them lots as a little girl but after that I only ever wore jeans. Maybe just because I don’t feel comfortable wearing a girly dress to class. Anyways, when I was scrolling through some websites, I actually saw some dresses I liked. One of those is this striped blouse dress. Everyone should at least have one striped dress in their Summer wardrobe because stripes are always a good idea, am I right?
As you might know, I am not the kind of girl that wears bright colors of prints on the daily bases. I always tent to go for white, black or striped clothing items. But in Summer I don’t feel like wearing black all the time so that’s why I invested in some colored and printed items! Last year I already got a printed top (which I wore in Barcelona). But when I saw this red top, I fell in love with it. Weird right? Well, I am going to wear this tons when I am in Athens because it will fit the weather (it will be about 30 ºC!) perfectly.
Red Top: Bershka € 17,99 | Beige Shoes: Toms € 49,95
In one of my first blog posts I talked about some crochet shoes I got. Over the past two years I’ve worn them so much that they were ready to be replaced. When the nice weather came around, I wanted to wear them again as soon as possible but I forgot that I actually needed a new pair. So that’s when I decided to invest in a pair of Toms. These are the same type of shoes I had been loving and Toms are also very comfortable (you do have to walk them in very well otherwise your feet will die the first time you wear them). I ended up going with the beige ones that have a little shine to them (which is a lovely detail). Btw, did you know that when you buy a pair of Toms they also give a pair to a child in need? Definitely a great reason to invest in a pair yourself.
Erika Sunglasses: Ray-Ban € 109,95
The last item is definitely something everyone needs to have in their bag all the time for Summer. When I was in New York and Washington D.C. last year I discovered I really needed better sunglasses. I had been using the cheap H&M sunglasses for years but since last year the sun really started to annoy me. So when I got these Ray-Ban sunglasses a whole new world opened up for me. I can’t leave the house without them and yes, they look good on anyone’s face shape so if you’re looking for a pair… 😎
