fashion fridays: 5 summer essentials

As you know in this part of my world, I am currently indulging a lot of sunshine and warm weather. Some days, too much sun and too damn hot.  Yes, it is summer here in down under!  So, here are my five essential summer must-haves this season:

Shorts:

Cute sandals:

I must say Birkenstock and Saltwater sandals are my top brands. They are comfy, light, and strong, yet stylish and they come in pretty colors too.  At the moment I am also loving the criss-cross sandals, and my flip-flop is a must in my summer staple! Remember comfy is the most important thing when it comes to foot-wear 🙂

A Kimono:

Bronze:

Summer time you don’t need heavy make up, just a tint of bronze will make your skin look tanned enough and fresh.  This Nars Laguna Bronzer is my fave this summer.  It’s a bit pricey but this bronzer definitely does its job.  It has a little bit of shimmer in it, giving you that pretty glow, but has a matte finish which is excellent for face contouring.

See by Chloe:

Last but not least, I like wearing light perfume during this hot summer.  This See by Chloe is light enough so you can wear during the day, yet not too heavy with a hint of vanilla, apple, and jasmine make it fun but flirty enough for day or evening.  The bottle shiny silver cap is decorated with a delicate ring to catch the bottle.  The style is graceful, feminine and spontaneous.

So, what’s your summer must-haves besides sunscreen + shades, of course?

Have a great week-end everyone! For those who celebrate Valentine’s Day it’s tomorrow! Hope your heart will be filled with lots of love from your loved ones and that you get to spent time together with your sweetheart, where ever you are.

Happy Friday from me to you!
