I am what you can call a “spring baby” – I was born late spring, towards the end of May. However, my absolute favorite time of the year has to be the summer. I love the longer days, the blue skies, the sun and even the heat! Just like a lizard, I enjoy sun bathing myself and I could stay all day long at the beach or at the pool, sipping ice tea and reading.
Having this said, I thought I should share with you guys my top 5 summer essentials I couldn’t live without!
1) Maxi dresses
During the summer, I live in maxi dresses. When temperatures surpass 30°C and it’s too warm for anything tight fitting, I usually don’t feel like putting any effort into my looks. My go-to outfit? A maxi dress, of course!
At the moment, I really love this romantic V-neck dress: the pattern is gorgeous and I’m a big fan of empire waists! Very flattering 🙂
As boring as it may sound, water is probably the number one thing I always keep in my purse during this period of the year. Summer gets very hot in Romania and as I spend a fair amount of time outdoors, I like to slip a reusable water bottle into my purse just to make sure I have my own water supply on hand.
3) A hat
Hats are my favorite finishing touch to any summer outfit! I usually prefer big, bold, floppy hats but this year I fell in love with a straw boater hat from H&M. It’s cheap and I absolutely love the bow detail in the back! Everyone needs a straw hat to protect their face from the sun and look adorable in the process, don’t you agree? 🙂
4) A cool float
I think this summer’s hottest accessory has to be the float. For the past few months, shops have been invaded with them: donuts, flamingos (I got one for myself!), pretzels, unicorns or pineapples, they are all too cute to pass!
Everything is so bright during the summer! Sunglasses are probably the first thing I reach for when the sun shines because 1/ I can’t see without them, 2/ they protect my eyes from harsh rays, 3/ I instantly look cooler haha, 4/I can pull off the no makeup look.
Now, what are YOUR summer essentials? Do tell!
