Well here it is, my Summer Fashion Essentials 2013! I didn't follow any rules or trends that are in at the moment, I just simply chose what I liked & thought would be great picks for this years summer. My first pick are a must for the hot weather & as well as a great way to show off your beautifully tanned legs. Dresses are also a great piece to just pop on & head out! Sunglasses are such a great accessory that can change any outfit or add a little extra something. When heading out to the beach or festivals it's nice to have a light pair of shoes, so that you can take a break from those tall tiring heels. I've also chosen a backpack for a few reason, one being that it was just so cute & the color was so eye catching to me. A cute hang bag or shoulder bag would be cute too if you prefer something more light. I like that the backpack is great for putting all your things such as a camera, laptop, keys, snacks & more! A hat can provide protection from the sun & just like the sunglasses can change an outfit. If you have a very basic outfit, adding a hat can change the style completely. If you wanted to add something a bit more colorful too, that would be great. And lastly, bathing suits, are a definite must for summer fashion. I've been in love with cutouts lately & I think these bathing suits are just phenomenal! You'll definitely be catching some stares in these & if feel like these are a bit overdramatic, you could easily substitute it for a class one or two piece bathing suit of your choice. When it comes to bathing suits, its whatever makes you feel comfortable & beautiful, no bathing suit is in or out of style!
