Getting Ready for Summer

Summer is finally here! The sun is shining and I couldn't be happier. I decided to pick out a few key pieces of accessories for summer from the wardrobe and in the process I realised that less is more.

Summer in my opinion is all about minimalisation. So this year I decided to have only 3 key accessories  for all of summer and then I feel like, depending on the outfit and occasion I can always add or subtract something to match my outfit.

So here is a list of my summer essential accessories:

1. Ivory/ White coloured Sunglasses

A light coloured sunglasses frame screams summer and looks really chic. Mine are from Michael Kores and have a lovely rose gold detailing at the top rim giving a very on-trend, cat eyed effect.

2. Comfortable Nude peep toes

Nude peep-toes are very versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down very easily. Mine are really comfortable with a very slight wedge heel. I would wear them anywhere and everywhere possible this summer; right from a wedding to a holiday. 

3. A bright coloured Satchel

A satchel is just a perfect bag for summer. It is the perfect size, not too big but can contain everything I need. I personally prefer a bright coloured one as I feel it adds a fun element to my outfits and is quite a statement piece. I got this from a boutique while I was in Spain last year and absolutely love it.

I wore all three of these items to the park yesterday with a lace top and polka dotted jeans. You cant see the nude wedges in the picture but those are the shoes I wore with the outfit.

Hope you are having a good weekend! x
