This month’s wishlist is gonna be less of a wishlist, and more of a summer essentials list. I’m writing this post in advance, because, as you already know I’m in Chios island for my cousin’s wedding, and I’m already in a summer holidays mood. Since we have hot summer weather here in Greece, all I can think lately is the beach, summer cocktails, and beautiful items to make my summer vacations more special. This post is a bit different from the usual wishlists I do, and I hope you welcome it with excitement. hehe

So which are the summer essentials for every girl out there?
Just imagine you’re in a gorgeous beach with amazingly clear blue waters, lying in a sunbed, under an umbrella to protect you from the sun, hearing the relaxing sound of the waves….Just you, your friends or boyfriend, and a yummy cocktail on your hand. What else do you need?
For starters, you need your beautiful new bikini, in a lovely color such as red (8 – Zimmermann Frill Bandeau Bikini) or blue (12 – L*space Adia Bandeau Bikini), your panama (3) or floppy hat (14), and a beach bag (16). Another summer essential is the sunglasses. Whether it’s a classic black pair, like these Ray-Ban ‘Classic Wayfarer’ Polarized Sunglasses (1), a brown tortoise one like these Ray-Ban ‘Folding Wayfarer’ Sunglasses (6), which are so easy to carry around, or a more modern pair like these yellow ASOS Round Sunglasses With Pink Mirrored Lens (7). To walk around the beach or the pool, what’s better than a plastic pair like those Melissa Lua Leaf Flat sandals (13) or those Tommy Hilfiger, Beverly Thong Jelly Flat sandals (15)? How cute are these bows? hehe The perfect addition to a pool outfit, is a bright-colored statement necklace! I loved this Square Tube Link Neon Bib Necklace (4) by Blu Bijoux. So bright, and cheerful! And of course a pretty lady needs pretty nails as well. Paint your nails in summer colors like this hot pink/purple one by Nars (9), this grass green one by POP (5), or this Nars one again, called Pokerface (2).
Do you need anything else for a day at the beach/pool? Just grab your beach towel, load music to your mp3, and go! And don’t forget your sunscreen (11)! You can have a tropic tan, without skipping the sunscreen! Especially if you’re fair skinned like me, use a high SPF (at least until you get a bit of color!), to avoid sunburns, freckles, and early skin aging.
I wish you all to have a fantastic month!
Tomorrow, I’ll be back from my holidays, and I’ll have a new post for you really soon!
