Summer favorites/must-haves

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Let me begin by saying that I have been planning this blog post for months. In the beginning in was supposed to be spring favorites but, as we are in the middle of summer, I got to change it up a bit.

So, I hope you will enjoy this post and it will be helpful as well as entertaining for you.

Beauty products:

During summer, my skin becomes dry and sun burnt, thus I need great moisturizers:

*Avon Care Rich Moisture face cream – I love it because it is not too rich. I mean it hydrates my skin but doesn’t make it greasy.

*ISANA Limited Edition body cream with pomegranates and figs – it smells amazingly and it is perfect to use after sunbathing.

*Avon Care hand & nail creme with glycerin – after using it my hands became so soft as they never have been before.

*EOS lip balm (strawberry sorbet flavor) – the smell of it is so fresh and natural.

Accessories:

*Sunglasses are a must during summer. Mine are from NewYorker and they have this really cool ombre effect.

*Recently I have been wearing a lot of rings. They add something special to every outfit without overpowering it and being too much. Colorful ones are from NewYorker, the one with flowers is from Avon, golden ones are from H&M and turquoise one is handmade. I painted a thick layer of nail polish on a coin and then topped it off with another layer of top coat. After it dried completely I glued it on a ring base. I love turquoise color of that one, it goes with practically everything.

Shoes: I love wearing wedges and these one have korke heal. The color of them is this pretty pink/orange coral and the front of them is covered with golden metal. It sparkles wonderfully in the sun. I bought them at a local boutique and they were so cheap, such a bargain.

Clothes:

I love sleeveless shirts. I think they are an amazing way to look stylish and sophisticated and at the same time to stay comfortable.

*The light green ones is very simple, casual from the brand Gina Laura.

*The motley cotton ones are from Stradivarius. I love that quirky, almost tribal print. Quirky prints are very in right now as ELLE UK suggests.

*Bottom left ones are from New Yorker. They have sparkly beaded collar and V form cutout at the back. They are also longer at the back and shorter at the front.

*The last ones, black with pink Eiffel towers are from H&M. They have chiffon front and cotton back.

The staple piece that I love wearing all summer long is long chiffon skirt. I have one in dark blue color and I am in love with it. Long skirts were huge trend last year but I am taking it to 2014 summer.I hope you enjoyed this slightly different post and have a great summer.
