Summer is very nearly here (#backbeforeyouknowit) and as this is my absolute favorite time of the year I can't help but share my guide to the ultimate vacation style. Yep, even if it's still beginning of May and mission #bikinibod might not have been accomplished yet.
Coming from a country where the warm sunny days last from April till the beginning of October I'm used to pulling out my summer clothes rather early. Or way too early for some people.
But anyhow, I decided to round up the items I crave for the most and help you build your Summer vacation wardrobe now, before everyone else does. It's all about being proactive after all.
- Kaftans. Kaftans or coverups or whatever you wanna call them, are very high up on my list. Why? Because if paired with the right shoes and accessories they can effortlessly take you from the beach to your seaside dinner.
- Slippers. Slippers are on top of everyone's hit-list for Summer - including mine - as they are chic & comfy and let's be honest they've been spotted on everyone who's anyone in the street-style scene. Opt for a summery version (these raffia Robert Clergerie for example) and wear them from day to night.
- Subtle swimwear. I know you're used to seeing me in any kind of different swim style, but I'm currently attracted to everything subtle and sophisticated. Don't worry, this kind will still have you standing out from the crowd ;)
- Beach bags. And more specifically big straw or raffia totes; the more distinctive, the better. You need a bag roomy enough to fit everything inside (from sunblock and towel to tons of beach novels) plus one to get you noticed. I'm seriously eyeing the hand-painted circular ones by Vanessa Seward. Thoughts?
