Summer Essentials Wish List 2016

25 May 2016

Through the winter I practically live in baggy jumpers, so I find summer a great chance to switch up my style and pull out a summer dress or two. Having a taste of warmer weather these past couple of weeks has really got me looking forward to summer, so today I've put together a wish list of summer essentials..

1. Lazy Oaf Swimsuit - This swimsuit popped up on my Instagram feed and it was love at first sight, anything that gets me closer to my childhood dream of being Ariel from The Little Mermaid and I'm in.

2. Ray Ban Mirrored Aviators - Aviators are my favourite style of glasses, I find that they really suit my face shape and I love how classy they look! I'd love to make an investment into a pair of mirrored RayBan aviators. 

3. Urban Outfitters Polaroids and Album - Being off for the summer means making memories, so I definitely need to stock up on my polaroids to take some cute snaps and a few mini photo albums to keep them safe.

4. Topshop White Frilly Shorts - I don't really own many white pieces of clothing as I don't trust my clumsy nature with them, but I definitely want to start introducing white into my wardrobe! I love these frilly shorts from Topshop and feel like they'll still be comfy while looking super cute!

5. Urban Outfitters Lace-back Bralette - Having big boobs and a broad back when backless styles have come into fashion is a struggle, so I think that this bra by Urban Outfitters would help me with those halter neck dresses and will add a bit of edge to them.

6. Coconut Lane Pineapple Necklace - I don't know why but I tend to get drawn to 'fruity' objects in the summer, I just feel like they scream summer! Which is why I'm definitely going to be purchasing this cute pineapple necklace from Coconut Lane. Get 20% off with code 'justlucyslife20'

7. Bondi Sands Fake Tan - Being a typical British gal I've been blessed (cursed) with 'english rose' skin that just will not tan, so fake tan is a must for me in the summer! I've heard a lot of good things about Bondi Sands tan so I'm hoping to try it out.

8. Michael Kors Tan Sandals - When we went to New York in 2014 my Mum got 2 pairs of MK sandals, and ever since I've been sneakily borrowing them in the warmer weather. They are so comfy for sandals and amazing quality that will last.

9. Hollister Mist - Hollister's Lunada Bay is my summer scent. It's just so fresh and lovely and my current bottle is running low so I'm definitely stocking up soon!

10. Urban Outfitters Dress - If you follow me on snapchat (@justlucyslife) then you'll of seen me snap about this dress. While waiting to meet up with a friend I popped into Urban Outfitters and as soon as I saw this dress I fell in love. I love the pattern and darker but still summery colour palette.

11. River Island Jumper - As I mentioned earlier, I practically live in baggy jumpers through the Winter, which is why when I saw this jumper in the 'New In' section of River Island I was buzzing. A baggy jumper that I can wear in the Summer and I love the off shoulder style, I think this would look really nice with a halter neck lace bralette so the straps would show.

So those are the things that I'm wishing for this Summer, what about you? Let me know in the comments!
