SUMMER WEEKEND ESSENTIALS 1

The kaftan has made its return to being back on trend and this season is back in a big way. There is no way you can go to the beach, to the pool or even out late at night on the town without a kaftan. Its a classic cover-up style. Look out for kaftans with embroidered detailing, tasselled cords and exotic print – those will be huge this summer.

Espadrilles and slides are back in a big way this season. It’s all about comfortability with a boho chic style mix thrown in. They look great not only with kaftans but also shorts, skirts and jeans. For both day and night.

I’m a huge sunglasses lover and my collection of sunglasses is never ending. I don’t believe in having just the one pair. In my closet, you will find a section that is dedicated to sunglasses. I’m always on the hunt for interesting styles and colours. This season the two-tone is on trend as it puts a new twist on sunglasses basic style. Go for interesting shapes and tones this season.

Hello, my name is Susana and I am a hat-acholic! Yes my lovelies, I am a big fan of hats! If you all could come and see my wardrobe (or as my husband calls it) ‘what used to be a spare bedroom is now officially you’re walk in closet’, you would all see my abudance of hats I have bought over the years. They range from the 70’s floppy hat which is now back this season, fedoras, trilbys and berets. I just cannot get enough of hats and just find that they add another level to your outfit, giving it a very stylish edge to it.

Tell me what are your summer essentials items you must have? Don’t forget to put on your sunblock protection! x
