2017 Summer Wishlist

2017 Summer Wishlist

Being from Costa Rica, I can’t express how much I’ve been missing warm weather. Snow is different, and lots of fun, but seriously I need some sunshine! I am so excited that summertime is getting closer and decided to prepare a wishlist of those summer essentials that have been on my mind.

MAHI Leather - Leather Duffle

Warmer weather and longer days definitely means Will and I will spend more time outside doing photoshoots. When I have to bring a bunch of things with me, I always struggle between bringing less and using a cute bag, or bringing everything and looking like a backpacker haha (not that that’s a bad look). These MAHI leather duffle bags are both spacious and stylish, and can also be personalized by engraving your initials. Looking through their website, I found out that MAHI is one of those fashion brands that cares about the environment and the industry; for every sale they donate a portion to support clean water in India, they also encourage a closer relation between buyers and craftsmen. A beautiful design, a great price, and a meaningful cause, definitely puts this duffle on top of my summer must-haves. Shop here.

Express - Embroidered Shorts

I haven’t worn shorts for months! This beauty from Express caught my attention when I was window shopping at the mall. Patches and embroidery are really trending, and I love the creative, colorful touch if brings to outfits. These would look great with bell sleeve tops or just over your swimsuit! Shop here.

Anthropologie - Guilhermina Slide Sandals

Summer is definitely the time to wear colors. These cute sandals will keep you looking vibrant and modern. I was very excited to find out that Guilhermina was founded in Brazil and uses fine materials for their sandals. The most comfortable shoes I have worn came from Brazil, so I think my mind associates Brazil with happy feet. Pair them with denim pants or a white dress to achieve effortless elegance. Shop here

Altar' ᗡ State - Swimsuit

Will and I stumbled upon this store the other day, and we just had to go in. The window display was very appealing and once we were inside, I didn't want to leave. They have really nice accessories and beachwear. One of my favorites was this one-piece swimsuit, I love the colors and the print design.  Shop here

World Market - Statement Necklace

The last thing on my summer wishlist (for now) is this necklace. I will probably be using a lot of cotton tank tops or graphic tees in the next months, and a statement necklace is a great way to add personality to the look. I love this combination of sea shells and tassels, when I look at it, I immediately feel at the beach. Shop here
