Summer has officially begun. Get your sunglasses and cool drinks and hurry because those summer days are here again! Start planning for the hot months ahead with my guide to the essential Summer Must Haves from top to bottom. But this is not you typical must haves list, NO!, this year we’re combining summer essentials with lifestyle basics.
1- Panama hat – the first summer essential you can get at Bergdorf’s Goodman or from the street vendors on 5th avenue.
4- Sunscreen– Even though I am not a big fan of some toxic SPF this boost of Coco & hibiscus butter from Boots Hawaiian Islands Body Butter, Coconut & Hibiscus should do a trick and protect your skin from sunburns. It smells super delicious to.
5- Lightweight scarf- like this Roberto Cavalli multi printed silk stole. Iit’s always handy to carry a colorful cloth. You can also use it as a belt with your trendy jeans, or attach it to your handbag.
6- Shiny lip gloss from eos Smooth Lip Balm Sphere, Summer Fruit – find the perfect everlasting color for your lips.
8- Maxi bright dresses– from Line Dot and you will be a traffic stopper this summer no matter where you are.
9- Floral prints- yes please! Try this colorful Roberto Cavalli dress
10- The essential little black dress- they will save your lives in any occasion. I love this Blumarine timeless black lace classy dress that will loyally serve you for a long time.
11- Shorts- considered the number one most have, you can wear it day and night. Chose these YSL elegant shorts they will serve exactly this purpose.
13- Low sandals– also known as elegant flip flops. These Giuseppe Zanotti rhinestone flats will be perfect to accompany you everywhere.
14- Dairy free delicious ice-cream waiting in the fridge- recharge batteries! The easiest and quickest is to mix frozen bananas in food processor until nice and creamy. Garnish it with nuts, coconut sprinkles, and home made chocolate fudge. (melt organic raw cacao butter and add 2tbs of organic raw cacao powder) Or enjoy by itself. Either way is fab!
15- Spanx– when something is “hanging”, always tuck it in
16- Fnd the perfect handbag for both the city and the beach, were you can toss in all of your summer essentials. This Chloe bag can be your solution.
17- A book– this is were you let your imagination flow. I personally love inspirational books and Arianna Huffington THRIVE is a great way to start your SUCCESSFUL BEAUTIFUL SUMMER
