Top 5 Summer Essentials

We keep hearing that warmer weather is on its way, so in preparation for this, we've decided to compose a Top 5 list of summer essentials:

1. Maxi Dresses - These dresses have been seen in all the major fashion magazines out there, on just about every celebrity worth mentioning. Not only do these dresses look great, but they're also super comfy and versatile...they'd be the perfect "throw it on" piece to pack for any upcoming holiday. Can't you see just throwing one of these dresses on with a pair of flip flops??? LOVE!!!

2. Denim Shorts - Denim shorts have ALWAYS been, and will forever be, a summer staple. What's so great about them nowadays is that they come in a wide variety of washes, lengths, and silhouettes. You can get anything from super short cut-offs to trouser style looks. Nothing beats a pair of short shorts, and a basic tank on a super hot day, or dress them up with a cute peasant blouse for a night on the town!

3. Chan Luu Scarves - It's no surprise that these scarves once again, made one of our Top 5 lists. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!! These scarves are perfect year round, but are fabulous in the summer for a great punch of colour. Because they're so fine, they'd be perfect as a little topper in the evening, or great on the airplane as a little "snugglie." If you don't already own a Chan Luu scarf, try one, you won't regret it...promise!!!

DYING!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Which one to choose???

4. Turquoise and/or Coral Jewellery - Few things remind me of summer more than turquoise and coral jewels. I like them alone, but LOVE them worn together in combination! Adding colour through your accessories is the quickest way to interject some life into your wardrobe.

Turquoise and Fuchsia, what a winning combination!!!

5. Wedges - This is the shoe of choice for summer; you get the height of a heel, yet the comfort of a sandal (the best of both worlds!). This shoe can be easily worn with any of your shorts, or pair them with a maxi dress for a great summer look.
