I love the summertime! A season of flowy dresses, sunglasses and Italian ice cream. The summer is about being comfortable. There is nothing worse than carrying a heavy large bag while walking in the heat. That's why I love small shoulder bags.
Wearing a shoulder bag keeps your hands available for your refreshing iced tea or that delicious Italian ice cream! So if u ask me, its a real summer essential.Sunglasses are always a must-have for summer. Not only to protect your eyes from the sun, but most importantly to add that fabulousness to your hot summer look! They can spice-up your look or give it more flare and class, depending on the style.
Everywhere I go, I bring my blush, lipgloss and hand sanitizer. Summer means eating more outside and unfortunately you don't always have the possibility to wash your hands. That's why I can't live without my hand sanitizers. It's also the best after eating some melting, sticky ice cream! My family from the US always send me a bunch of these little bottles from Bath&BodyWorks. They're really the best!
I love the minty tingle that the Dior lip maximizer gives. I've been using the Chanel blush for years now and can't go without it. It has a little mirror inside, so when some bug decides to fly in my eye (hate when that happens!), I don't have to ask someone to get it out. Plus I can always check the status of my make-up. Bright colored nails in the summer are a must! It brings out your tan more and it ads that little pop of color that gives your look that summer vibe.
- The scent of summer -
I am absolutely in love with all the Hermès perfumes, even the ones that are for men! They all have a really rich and recognizable smell. At the Hermes stores they sell these 11 special perfumes, called Hermessence, that you can mix with each other so you can create your own unique Hermès essence! They are a little expensive at €185 per bottle, but still a super fun way of creating your own smell. My favorite summer perfume is 'Un Jardin sur le Nil' by Hermès. It's a very fresh scent that is perfect for summer days and nights!
So what are your summer essentials?
