Hat - Topshop
Sunglasses - ASOS
Bag - MissGuided
Bikini - Topshop
Playsuit - ASOS
Its that time of year when we can start fantasizing about trips away to beautiful, hot destinations whether it be a week by the beach or a city break. Whatever you're doing this summer, you'll probably need to go shopping. I always seem to find an excuse...
So I've complied my wishlist of essentials that I really want to get my hands on before I go away! The first thing I really want is a great hat as although I love the sun, a bit of shade is always nice and I love this completely oversized one from Topshop. Also a must have is of course sunglasses and these ones from ASOS are so cute and this style goes with so many different face shapes, and a dusky pink also goes with everything in a summer wardrobe.
Another staple is a bag that you can just throw everything in and take to the pool/beach but also to a restaurant in the evening, and for me that's a backpack. This one from MissGuided is a beautiful colour and the perfect size. Also on holiday I don't like to pack loads of shoes, so these sandals from Brantano are great because they will go with everything whether its a casual outfit by the pool or dressed up for an evening out. And of course you have to have an amazing bikini, and this one from Topshop is so cute!
An outfit essential for me in the summer is a simple playsuit as they're comfortable, cute and more practical than a dress. This one from ASOS I love because i can imagine it'll look amazing with a tan! I'm also on the hunt for a great pair of sandals, and I literally can't decide from all of these.
I really hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, let me know where you're going this summer!
