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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
