Consider this your check list for your next summer get-away.
When it comes to swimwear, I've always preferred one-piece silhouettes. Not only are they more comfortable to wear, but I also love their irresistibly classic feel, a subtle nod to style from decades past.
When selecting a new suit I try to find a fit that feels not only comfortable but also covering all the right places, so you could show off your summer glow with no worries at all.
This season has a variety of textures and prints to make finding the perfect summer swimsuit that much easier!
See below for a few of my favourites right now!
Hats have always been a staple of my summer wardrobe, both for sun protection and for style. Even the simplest outfit feels intentional and put-together when topped with a beautiful hat.
Classic and feminine, the straw hat is perfect for an afternoon stroll, especially when paired with your favourite dress.
One of my everyday staples is a classic white button down that serves as the foundation piece from which to build new looks.
Whether relaxing in the park, or heading to the beach, this classic button-up shirt is an easy throw-on piece to pair with sandals and denim shorts.
A classic shirt is always nice, but finding one with added details like a ruffled collar or embroidery is always special.
Lately, I have loved striped models perfect for the seaside, obviously.
Over the years I've collected my share of basket bags, finally whittled down last year to a hand full of favourite styles. The texture and structure in these natural fiber bags compliment a variety of looks, especially during the spring and summer months. Woven totes, in particular, offer the room to carry all of my essentials when I'm on the go.
A mini basket bag, like this one with green textile handles with little white flowers, is perfect for pairing with your favourite summer dress for an evening stroll near the beach.
A mini dress adds a relaxed, easy going style for summer, especially when paired with simple sandals or slides. Staying cool and comfortable this time of year is a definite priority, with heat and humidity on the rise. A breezy mini dress offers a great solution with minimal effort and a maximum return. Whether you are searching for a simple shirtdress, or something more romantic and/or statement-worthy, see below for the prettiest minis to wear all summer long!
A quintessential summer-time classic that looks as good in the city as it does on the beach. Whether you prefer light wash, medium wash, or dark wash, a pair of denim shorts is a timeless staple - tone it down with ugly dad sandals (a staple this summer) or your favourite white sneakers and a flower crown.
One of my biggest sources of inspiration is classic movies, so it’s no surprise that I now gravitate toward silhouettes and details that will stand the test of time. Even when I’m wearing a more simple outfit, I love adding a vintage-inspired twist with sunglasses – you’ll never find me without a pair in my bag! From cat-eye shapes to coloured frames, sunglasses can make a big statement, regardless of their price tag.
After years of over-packing I’ve finally understood that less is in fact more. What are your ultimate clothing pieces and/or accessories that you never travel without?
