In my new home, the North of England, summer went past without me realizing properly and I was actually about to blog about new autumn trends. Well, my trip home to Germany taught me otherwise. It´s 40 degree and I started thinking of summer again. If you are going on a holiday soon, or you are fortunate enough to live in a hot country, here are my current summer favourites:
I remember that I used to hate these “horrible” shoes on my mom and even refrained from liking them when they started to become socially accepted. Well times change and I´m in love with them. By now I own two pairs (and one rip off)and I could wear them all day. They are super comfortable and light.
Plastic – It´s fantastic. A few years ago I bought a candybag and since then I can´t get enough of see through bags. Whether you prefer the stylish minimalist hunter version or the cute statement watermelon clutch is up to you.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow
People keep asking me why my skin looks so shiny and hydrated but not greasy. Well here’s the answer. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is my favourite make up AND most importantly it contains sunscreen.
One of the most important things in summer: HYDRATE! And what´s a better idea than getting a cute tumbler like this Lilly Pulitzer for Nordstrom Designer Version.
While autumn and winter are all about pretty hairdos and braids, summer can get away with beach hair. No other hairdo could be easier or more laid back than this.
My favourite activity on a lazy summer day is reading! I´ve just finished the sequel/prequel/whatever to “To Kill a Mocking Bird” and even though it has been widely criticized it´s a new favourite. It may not be your classical summer read, but nobody ever said that we shouldn’t think in summer! ;)
My #1 accessory. They are useful, they hide our tired eyes from fellow human beings and they range from stylish to crazy to glamorous to well whatever you can imagine.
