I’ve never been particularly excited about shopping for summer clothes (it doesn’t help that Auckland rarely gets hot enough to need much in the way of summer clothing – the majority of what I own is all-purpose enough!). I’ve been a wee bit more interested this year – and I want pieces that are obvious ‘go-to’ summer beach & holiday staples. These are just a few of my picks that I’m eyeing up.
Ruby’s Top Cat Hat
Ruby’s Top Cat Hat’s have just arrived in-store and o-mi-gooood they are adorable! I don’t usually go for hats, but the prints are just too damn cute to pass up. I don’t know which I’d choose between the leopard and the polka-dot either.
Stripes have always been my go-to prints for bikini’s. This one is from Country Road, and I like it because it’s actually black and cream rather than black and white – which is a subtle but refreshing change.
I’m not much of a sandle girl either, but these picks are especially cute. I like a pair that you can chuck on with a togs, over-sized tee & sunnies and head down to the beach in. In order of appearance, these are from Ruby, Country Road and Wild Pair.
Over-sized White Tee
Last but not least, the over-sized white t-shirt. I like this one by Bassike because of the longer, loose-fit sleeves and sheer fabric.
I know a lot of you are going into winter right about now – but still, what are your favorite summer staples?
