Summer is here!… Well just about.
My favourite time of year:
Beach, Christmas, Uni holidays, daylight savings, late afternoon ciders, watermelon, mangoes, swimmers, shorts, thongs, tans, too-hot-to-touch steering wheel, BBQs, music, sunscreen, hot chips, hot sand, salty hair and afternoon naps.
Here are some of my Summer essentials that I pretty much use on a daily basis >>>
I love buying new swimmers. I don’t do as it often as some people, because I can never justify spending the money when I have a perfectly good pair from last year. But this year I actually needed some + I found these swimmers on sale (bonus!). You can find them here.
- Denim shorts:
I have had my denim shorts for a couple of years now, and they have been such a good buy. Mine are high waisted from One Teaspoon and as they are denim, which means I can wear them with just about anything. I think this will be my last Summer with them before I have to get a new pair. You can find a whole range of shorts on their website here.
Yes, thongs are obviously always an essential (especially for the beach). But when you are going for lunch or to the shops its good to dress up a little from thongs. Which is why my Witner sandals have already had so much wear out of them- I can just slip them on!
I still have my Les Specs from last year which were affordable ($40) and have been really great quality. This season I have also bought a pair of Quay sunglasses. I opted for a pair with the reflection mirror on them, and as much as I have loved seeing them on Instagram I am actually not entirely sold if I can pull them off!
- A fan:
My room is basically a sauna during Summer, especially of a morning. I kept putting it off last year, but this year I will be definitely getting a fan. So far I think K-mart is a win with fans from $12!
