Hey Guys

Summer is almost here in Australia and I can’t wait, so I thought  I would share my summer must haves!

I love simple and relaxed outfits for summer especially because of Perth’s extreme heat.

My must haves include;

  • Swim Suit and Sunglasses:
My Seafolly bikini and Chanel sunnies

Of course a bikini (or bathing suit in general) and sunglasses would be featured at the top of my list.

Australia is renowned for their beautiful beaches and when the hot weather hits, I know where I’ll be.

I’m obsessed with simple bikinis like the one in the picture above. Throw over a  kaftan and put on a pair of sandals and you’re ready to go.

  • Denim Shorts and Perfume:
My vintage Levis and Oh Lola perfume


Denim shorts are an absolute must have in my opinion. I practically live in them during the summer!

Denim shorts are so simple and breezy in the summer time but are easy to dress up with a white shirt, red lippy and heels.

  • Denim Jacket and a White T-Shirt:
My Cheap Monday denim jacket and Saba t-shirt


I love a white t-shirt any time of the year but in summer its one of my absolute must haves.

As goes for the denim jacket. I’m a massive denim lover and this Cheap Monday jacket is perfect for those cool summer nights.

  • The Little Black Dress:

The little black dress or the LBD should be a staple in any women’s wardrobe and Seed Heritage have taken a relaxed approach to the LBD and made it summer appropriate.

Dress it down with a pair of slides or dress it up with some heels, this dress can definitely take you from day to night.

The added bonus of the off the shoulder neck line gives you the right amount of sex appeal, but you still get that summer/bohemian vibe.

  • Summer Beauty Must Haves:
My fav three beauty products

My last three summer essentials are moisturiser, BB cream and a coral lippy.

I love the vaseline spray moisturiser, its so easy to apply and perfect to nourish my dry (and sometimes burnt) skin in the summer.

The Garnier BB cream is perfect for summer because its light weight and gives you enough coverage without looking cakey and honestly no one wants thick make-up on their skin when its super hot!

Lastly I swear by my Tom Ford lippy in true coral for summer, this shade can take an outfit from day to night in one swipe and its also extremely creamy.

I know this lipstick is a bit pricey but the quality is fantastic and totally worth the splurge in my opinion.

PS) Let me know what your summer essentials are in the comments bellow!

Love and Light
