Summer Essentials: Fashion

So in my previous post, you’ve seen my beauty must haves. Along with beauty comes fashion, so here are my top fashion summer essentials and the reasons why I love them.
se11. Birkenstocks:  These sandals are what’s hot for this season.  They have been seen on just about every fashion blogger and every celeb. Not only do they pair well with so many outfits, but they are extremely comfortable. Also, I cannot forget to mention that they look good on everyone no matter your age or sex.  Isn’t that great!?   Mine were given to me as a graduation gift from my little brother of the men’s fashion blog Victor Alexander.  And as a lover of black, the color that he chose for me was perfect.  They are a bit pricey, but they are well worth it. I promise you.
2. Panama Hat:  These straw hats have been everywhere these past couple of years and I finally got my hands on one.  Let me first say that I usually hate hats and I usually hate putting anything on my head, but when I found this hat and tried it on, I felt that this hat looked great on me.  I love this hat.  It looks great when I wear my hair down in a straight style, with a side bun, or with a side braid.  It’s a very simple piece, but it’s a great addition to everyone’s closet.
3. Brightly Colored Open Toe Heels: Ok. So I spotted these in a video by one of my favorite Youtubers, Hey Claire.  I absolutely love her style.  It’s so simple and clean. Anyhow, once I saw them in one of her hauls, so of course, I had to get them.  I went to Zara in DC recently and they were having an amazing sale.  Who knew Zara had sales?  Anyhow, these heels were on sale for only $39.99.  They didn’t have my size in the store so I quickly ordered them online. I cannot wait to wear these. They are so sexy and the hubby told me he loved them on me.  So obviously, they are a winner in my book!
4. Brightly Colored Crossbody Bag:  Because I wear a lot of black, I accessorize with brightly colored accessories and this bag gives me that perfect pop of color that I need.  This Kate Spade bag was gifted to my as a graduation gift by my husband. I was absolutely shocked that he even picked this out.  I love that it’s small for those days that I will be walking for long periods of time and do not desire to carry a big bag.  The small size is perfect! I’ve always dreamt of owning a Kate Spade and this bag couldn’t be more perfect.  Love it!
5. Bralettes: These are a fun addition to any Summer wardrobe.  These make a subtly sexy statement when worn under loose tanks or with tops with low hanging armholes.  It’s a small added detail when pairing with simple tops and takes your outfit up to another level. I got mine from Charlotte Russe for $4/each. Can’t beat that price!

What are you fashion summer essentials?  I’d love to know.
