FAB SUMMER OUTFIT : DENIM CUT-OFFS


One of my favourite combo, particularly for day time, is a striped button down shirt/boyfriend shirt, denim cut-offs and a pair of sandals. Paired with gorgeous sunglasses. Denim cut-offs are versatile and in this case I was going for a dressed up look. I kept the accessories pretty minimal because I wanted an easy breezy look and didn't want to take the attention away from the shorts.


CAPSULE WARDROBE : SUMMER ESSENTIALS

summer essentials

Hey guys! Today's post is a collaboration with the beautiful Ese from http://www.esejanta.co.uk/ .Ese is a fashion fanatic and her blogging genre falls in the category of fashion, beauty and lifestyle. She has a great sense of style and is never afraid to flaunt her beautiful curves.  We decided to share our essential items for summer.

Each new season calls for a little wardrobe upgrade for me. But, I don't shop till I drop. Strategic shopping is something I have adopted in the recent and by doing so, I find that I tend to wear everything I purchase rather than buying something and putting it away (I am sure we are all guilty of this). 
Summer time is filled with festivals, holidays, BBQs,parties weddings etc.Whether you are heading to Greece or staying local there are essential items that every girl needs in her wardrobe. Think vibrant happy colours, floral patterns, pleated maxis, cheeky shorts, jeweled sandals and midi skirts. When creating a capsule wardrobe I tend to pick essentials which I can style in so many different ways. In other words being economical ( no wonder I am studying Economics lol) but maintaining your personal style. 

My essential accessories for summer



Sandals - As much as I love heels, lets face facts here, its quiet a mission to walk around in heels. So why not go easy on the heels and opt for comfortable flats/sandals. Currently pop pom sandals are making the waves in blog-sphere. They are colorful gladiators perfect  for summer! Multi strap pompom sandals, £24.99, Ego



Sunglasses - A good pair of sunglasses is an essential to protect your eyes from the harsh sunshine. Trendy mirrored glasses are super glam. Prada sunglasses, Prada, Rayban aviators, Rayban.

Large Tote - If you are a big fan of big bags then a large tote is a great summer essential. I opt for large totes because I for some reason carry all sorts of things with me. From hand cream to a picnic blanket, I like to be ready for anything so I carry my whole life in my bag lol.

Here are Ese's three essential clothing items for summer. 
Essential Clothing item for summer!  Summer time is fast approaching well so we hope, therefore it's that time of the year when we bring out our summer clothing in the hope that we actually get some sun, show off our lovely skins, drink some chilled cocktails, cider in a nice pub, watch a lot of Tennis.
The Boyfriend/Ripped Jeans
 
The boyfriend jean is a No 1 staple summer time clothing item, not only does it go with every thing, it also looks amazing. There is something about the boyfriend jean/ Ripped jean that just screams out for a nice white vest, sandals or heels, even trainers. I love that its very versatile, it can be styled up or down.
Kimmi Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans, £32 Asos Boohoo Plus Ripped Knee Skinny Jean, £25, Asos
The Cold-Shoulder Top
If there’s one clothing item that is a sure must summer 2016, it’s the cold shoulder. Off-the-shoulder tops have remained relevant for decades, there’s a way to wear the style for any occasion.
Replace that everyday T-shirt with a peekaboo shoulder version in a bright summery shade or pick up a body which is another must have for the season, you can pair a body with almost everything from denim hot pants, boyfriend Jeans to midi skirts.

Block Heeled Sandals

For me block heel sandals are an absolute must for any summer time, they are perfect for every occasion, they can be dressed down to get a more casual feel to a look and same time can be dressed up, and are also perfect for a date night.

STRIPED ROMPER


A romper is super convenient for lazy days. It saves you the time from thinking of what top to wear with which bottoms because it’s like a two-in-one kind of piece. Co-ords are also a great alternative . Hustle free. Now, rompers are very light, cool and summery because the bottom part is made of shorts so if you are the conservative type and want something with more coverage, you can also go for jumpsuits instead. I love my stripes and have posted a couple of  different striped looks here and here

CHIFFON MAXI SKIRT


Its time to dust off your old favourites. With the weather getting warmer, its the perfect time to flaunt maxi skirts. For a soft romantic look, opt for a chiffon maxi in hot pink and pair it with a light weight top. Just add sandals and minimal accessories for a perfect breezy look. If you go for a flowy style like this one, then the top should be something that is tighter to give you more shape.


CITY CHIC STYLE


Shein v-neck plunge A-line Midi dress


Blush pink is perfect for spring. Not only does it fall under the pastel family but it also gives that crisp clean look. Its a trend on its own, with a soft warmth that positively glows.
