summer must haves


After having spent one year in the sun and palm tree filled California, I am much more excited
for summer than I usually am. Being able to wear summer clothes with bare legs almost every
single day was such a nice change from Icelandic summers. I felt a lot more free and ready to
experiment more while I was there and I had a lot more fun dressing there than I do here. So I
decided to share with you some basic pieces that I think everyone must have in their wardrobe
for the upcoming summer. I have a lot of items on the list but here are some of the basics:

- A black and white striped t-shirt.
- Distressed jean shorts (like Levi's)
- White sneakers (love my Converse)
- Classic sunnies that go with everything.
- Black strappy flat sandals (basics!)
- A fun printed dress with a mix of colors.
- A bikini! Love neon and printed this summer.

Since my mom is going abroad on a little shopping trip this weekend I added the navy printed
dress, neon bikini and the Zara sandals to my wishlist. I can imagine wearing the dress with my
white Converse sneakers and some fun sunnies. I just wish I could go bare legged here at home
but you never know if it will be that warm or not. I can't wait to see what she comes back with
and most of all, I can't wait to shoot some summer outfits for you guys. 
What is on your summer must have list?

  5. I think I already have all I really need for summer, but despite that, my wishlist is always growing nonetheless. I love loose tops in stripes and flat sandals, but both are so unflattering on my frame, I wear the scarcely.
    I wear tights all year long because it tends to cool down on late summer afternoons/evenings here in Austria too, and I don't mind at all. I've found the perfect invisible tights for me (everybody always asks if I'm crazy because I'm not wearing tights in the cold, lol)

    1. I have to wear tights all year as well, being barelegged comes perhaps once or twice here in Iceland! Makes it even more special when you go somewhere warmer and can be barelegged x
