summer essentials

Hey guys! Today’s post is a collaboration with the beautiful Ese from .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

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.

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.
