My Summer Essential List

When it comes to summer wardrobe, I am pretty simple. My favorite default look is a comfortable stylish summer dress. I love dresses because a gal doesn't need to think about matching outfits together. It is possible to roll out of bed, get dressed and out of the house in 15 minutes. Yesterday, I literally rolled out of bed and was out of the house in 10 minutes by pulling on a maxi dress, tie hair up in a ponytail and minimum makeup. A pair of cute shades will do wonder!

With this in mind, I will be a happy gal if I can pick up a couple maxi dresses and a few cute accessories for this coming summer season. This way, this gal can look stylish with minimum amount of effort. How savvy is that, right?!

1. C&C California color block maxi dress $95
2. James Perse $165
3. Swarovski Amazing Brown Sunglasses $330 --- I like the unique style. A pair of good shades will add that touch of style even if we are super casual. (via
4. Nine West Deydarlin gold sandals $59 --- A pair of simple gold sandals in the summer will pair well with almost all outfits
5. Young Fabulous & Broke $190 (all 3 dress available at
6. Whisper crystals and metal bangle $98 --- It is often surprising to many how a little piece of jewelry can add so much to an outfit. (via
7. Last but not least, Chanel Dragon red nail polish. --- Got that. I love love love this red year round. It is especially pretty and outstanding with sandals in the summer. (via


  1. Maxi dresses are LOVE! Hope you'll share pics of your new purchases when you get around to shopping for maxis :)

  2. Gorgeous items and dresses are the best xx

  3. Your summer essentials list has become MY summer essentials list now. ;) Especially those fab sunnies! xo

  4. I absolutely love maxi dresses, but they're too hot for me in the Atlanta summer. Maybe I'll do some maxi dress shopping in early fall :)

    Love the striped maxi.

  5. Dragon is a great color!

    (I love their macarons. If you found them too rich and much, try the ones at Jin Patisserie in Venice. They lighter but still yummy. =)


Love to hear your thought.....
