Although I’m currently spending 6 out of 7 days in a dark & dusty theatre, feeling like a crumpy Vampire whenever I exit into the bright daylight, the amounts of sweat coming from the walls and from my arm pits tell me: oh hey it’s High Summer! So whenever I’ve got a split second free time to enjoy the summer sun, I’m heading to the beach/park in the most comfy clothes possible. Here are my Top 5 High Summer Staples:
A BLACK SLIP DRESS
Slides, sneakers, sandals – there’s nothing you can’t pair with a simple slip dress and it’s the best option on hot summer days… It could easily be transformed into a night-out dress: Just add some hot heels and an eyecatching clutch bag!
Either you love them or you hate them. But the fact that there’s nothing comfier than wearing this fugly species made me forget all my manners and once they were back in (birken)stock I clicked them home… Score!
A LARGER TOTE
Even when you’re not schlepping tons of textbooks, work-out clothes and water bottles around (that would be me), you’ll need a large
tote bag to carry all things needed for a fun day at the beach/pool/park.
A DENIM JACKET
A (sleeveless) denim jacket is something every girl should have in her closet. Best to throw on sunkissed shoulders while bouncing home with your favourite ice cream in your hands…
No summer without sunglasses shades, right? I’m currently obsessed with all kinds of two-toned framed or cat-eye shaped sunnies…
