Summer is nearing and I honestly can't wait! I find myself scrolling through some online stores every now and then to look for inspiration of what I want to wear during summer. So in this post I will show you my "essentials" for summer. Buying clothes is a rather expensive hobby of mine, so before I dive into Zara, Asos, Topshop, New look, Boohoo and MissGuided to spend all of my money, I decided to have a look in my closet, to see what I don't necessary have to buy! So let's hop right into it.
The basics. You can't go wrong with that. Basics can be worn throughout the whole year, so this is definitely something that I need in my closet. When I did my winter essentials list last year, I didn't feel like I lacked in the basic department. But after I posted it, I kinda did feel like I lacked in the basics department, so I have invested in basics over the last few months and I noticed that ever since I got them, I have worn them a lot. Basics isn't really something I need to buy myself any more as I have plenty, which means that I can buy the actual fun stuff!
I've been getting into graphic tees a lot more lately. The only problem is that I barely have any. Graphic tees are cute with shorts, skorts, skirts and jeans. Graphic tees are my thing right now. So I think it's safe to say that I need to hop into Urban Outfitters and hop onto Asos to get myself some more graphic tees.
Skorts aren't everybody's favourite. But they definitely are a favourite of mine. I only own these skorts from Zara from last summer, so I definitely think that I need to invest in some more skorts. I saw a bunch of cute ones over on MissGuided, Boohoo and Topshop, so I definitely need to get myself at least another two pairs of skorts.
Blouses and shirts
I am a big lover of wearing shirts and blouses during spring and summer, so it is safe to say that I have a closet that is filled with blouses and shirts. This is only a slight collection of the many blouses and shirts that I own, so I would not say that blouses and shirts are something I need to invest in. Only when I see a really lovely one and I have to have it.
Do you notice something in the photo above? All of the skirts are black! I am a big lover of wearing skirts during spring and summer. Midi skirts and wrap skirts are my recent obsession ever since I found out that they suit me, so I definitely think I need to invest in some of those skirts and I really could use some more colour when it comes to the skirt area.
Lastly I present to you, my statement colour tops. I'm not really a fan of the whole "statement colour" on me, as I think some colour really don't suit me at all, which makes me feel uncomfortable. So when it comes to statement colours, where I feel comfortable in, I sure am sorted. Although I definitely need to invest in some more of those camisoles, they're the comfiest thing ever and super flowy.
Overall I am pretty happy with my summer wardrobe. I mean, I have all the items I wanted for summer, I just want a few more items, such as more skorts, more graphic tees and more skirts. It's not really a necessity, but more of things would be welcomed and very much appreciated.
So is there something missing in your spring/summer wardrobe? If so, please let me know what! (it could give me ideas so I can spend all of my money before actually going on holiday!)
