This summer is all about simplicity. I have waved farewell to complicated outfits that take a day of strategic planning to put together. I even went so far as to say goodbye to half of my make up. I refuse to waste a single moment of a summer day inside stressing over wardrobe choices or applying layer upon layer of cosmetics.
Simple pieces, a splash of bronzer across my cheekbones, a wand-full of mascara, and a refreshing spritz Chanel Eau Tendre and off I go.
My top 5 fashion picks for this Summer season (should it ever decide to arrive) were chosen based on a couple factors. First of all for their obvious beauty, and secondly for their ability to make the complicated preparation process us females put ourselves through day after day a little easier.
Now this can come in all shapes and forms; skirts, dresses, tops and even pants. My absolute favorite flowing addition to my wardrobe is my new light and airy cotton pants. They sit perfectly on my hips and can be worn casual with a cropped tank top, or dressed up for an evening out. I am very much looking forward to pairing them with a bikini top for a walk in the sand this summer.
Not unlike any summer before, this season is FULL of tons of ultra feminine and fun floral prints. I don’t know about you but I always feel at my prettiest in something floral, even if it something as small as a ring or necklace. There is nothing that brings me more instant gratification then when I see a bright and beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, so why not bring a little bit of that happiness with me for the day?
3. Strappy Sandals
Flats and heals! I don’t care who you are, every single woman on earth needs (and deserves) a gorgeous pair of heels to showcase her perfectly polished pedicure (hint, hint, ladies–get into the spa and get those toes done!)
Let those pretty peds breath with a pair of fun open-toed sandals. It’s essential to have a couple pairs in different colors, of course, to match the rest of your ensemble, but a MUST HAVE colour is camel. I am so crazy about camel this season. Toss on some sunless tanner or tinted SPF and a pair of sky-high camel heals for instant long beautiful legs.
4. Big earrings
I’ve decided I am officially chan-delirious for chandelier earrings once again. It is a perfect go-to accessory to take a simple and casual outfit from day to night. Pull your hair up and out of your face and cool down for the hot months of the year, letting your dainty long chandeliers dust your freshly sun-kissed shoulders.
5. Summer Dresses
If it weren’t for my latest obsession with flowing cotton pants, I would be spending my entire summer in a long summer dress. The best part about these dresses is they require zero effort other than the initial purchase!
Ladies, fill your closets with a dress for every day of the week for stress-less dressing in the morning. Pick a color, slip it on and go.
