hello again lovelies!
summer is in full swing and i am super happy bout it! i went on a school camp for four days and it was very very hot. i got sunstroke and currently have tan lines in the shape of my sports bra, but it was pretty fun!
as it is now pool and beach season i thought i would share with you the bathers, clothes, beauty products, and accessories that i will be over using this summer! i have a newfound love affair with the bread and butter letter which is a vintage and nz made shop located on k-road. in the space of a month i have picked up 3 things from there but you will have to wait till after christmas for the third as its a christmas present.
anywho, enjoy! oh and enjoy the weather too! xxx F
pink and red stripy polo
how cute is this! its a vintage dunlop one which i nabbed from the bread and butter letter of course, my favorite vintage hotspot! i love how it’s a singlet so it’s not too hot and my shoulders can get some sun.
silver hoop earrings
i love the way hoop earrings look with my bob, not sure why i think it just looks cool! hoops are a great way to fancy up an outfit but if your planning on playing a spot of something sporty be careful cause there easy to get caught or pulled. ouch!
this hat is my school hat and i have taken it daily to school for the last to weeks because i sit in a very sunny spot while eating lunch, and i realised that it’s kinda cute, practical and comfy. but im not suggesting to take your school hat to the beach but getting or putting on a straw hat is a pretty good idea.
probably the most aesthetically pleasing drink i have ever sipped on. and honestly it’s amazing and im not generally a rose scented or fragranced fan. good stuff.
the top is from cotton on body last year, it’s a nice classic cut and navy as always goes with almost everything. and the bottoms believe it or not where five bucks from kmart, score! they are a little bit more risque compared to the swimwear i normally wear but their gingham and i’m not gonna look like i do now forever!
sun jellies bag
i talk about this bag all the damn time, sorry, but it’s my pride and joy. louis vuitton who? nah just kidding, but these are waterproof so if it drops in the pool (empty) it will be all good! cute and practical, win win!
dotty spotty dress
i picked up this cute dress for 10 dollars at the factory markets, its vintage and was a little big so i chopped the sleeves and i now tie them in little bows which makes it look even cuter. long flowy singlet dresses are must haves for me for summer.
i have never worn these out and i don’t think i have the confidence to. they were my mum’s when she was young and they look very cool. but wearing sunglasses is very important to protect your eyes and also prevent early eye wrinkles. yeah!
citrus is too damn delicious! this might be an odd thing to add but summer and fresh fruit go hand in hand so chuck a mandarin in your bag on the way to the beach.
fjallraven kanken backpack
although these pags are tiny you would be surprised at the amount of things i have managed to squeeze into mine, i use it as a school bag so plenty of books! these are also great for day adventuring, walking to a waterhole or a short bush walk.
book & notebook
if your planning on sitting out getting a tan you might as well expand your mind. i have to read while tanning other wise i get bored so i always have a book handy while away in whangamata.
this is a new purchase from cotton on body. i like the quite sporty cut of this one and the girly cute contrast with the frilly sleeves! pop on some navy bottoms and away you go!
i like tying these on my bag straps, around my neck or in my hair. a very chic accessory and make ya feel like your in a 60’s movie.
mario badescu green tea facial spray
this is the sh*t! everyone raves about it for a good reason. it’s refreshing and revitalising, i took it to camp and it was so nice to spritz some on after i had too much sun or got a bit hot.
aesop shower gel
a nice scented shower gel is nice for summer in my opinion cause i personally think its more cooling than a bar of soap. the eco store do a coconut one which is a great one for summer scent wise. this aesop one is geranium which i normally hate but as always aesop make is beautiful.
one piece bathers
i got these at a very cheap price from glassons last summer and i think im the only person that likes them and i’m not sure why. it’s pretty pink has a straight neck and the straps tie into cute bows, what’s not to love? fashion aye.
ahhhh i love that these beauties are back in season! i put them on my overnight oats, yogurt and just eat them by the punnet. i cannot wait to make our traditional strawberry cheesecake, christmas comfort food at it’s finest.
i got given this from my grandad filled with homegrown oranges which was very sweet. it’s now very useful for picnics and also quite on trend.
la croix in peach and pear
another aesthetically pleasing drink that tastes damn good! this one is lightly sparkling and lightly flavored, it’s a summer winner. perfect for a little beach afternoon picnic treat with a fwend.
what a lovely produce season summer is. avocados are perfect on and in almost everything. guacamole, salads, vogels, i could go on for a while… im sure everyone that is an avo lover has there own recipes to include these green things in.
$10 sale sun protection is the best kinda sun protection. this has come on two tramps and a camp with me and i did’nt get burnt (on my face!) bucket hats in cutey prints for life!
another spotty dotty dress
spots and singlet dresses seem to be a fav of mine! this is another pink vintage beauty from the bread and butter letter that i adore so very much. it’s kinda see through though which is a bit sad but pretty nonetheless. looks cute with the hoops too.
on of my favorite brands is gorman although it’s a little over my price range when this one was on sale and was one of the only bikinis that actually fitted me well i splurged and nabbed it. atelier bingo who are the crafty duo behind the print produce some pretty groovy things!
if you got to here your a champ! xx
