Oh, Here Comes The Sun | Essentials: Summer

Sharing my essentials for different seasons or situations is something I’ve been sharing a lot. That’s because I also like to see other peoples, so why not share mine? Since summer really started in The Netherlands, I all of the sudden had to get all of my summer clothing items out again. ☀️ After shopping a bit, I have definitely gathered my summer essentials for this year! Curious about my essentials?

“Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter. Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here.”

LIGHT DENIM SHORTS: H&M

☼ DENIM SHORTS ☼

When the temperatures start rising, people get their shorts out immediately (well, at least in The Netherlands). I have to be honest, I am not a big fan of shorts. That just starts with the fact that it’s really hard to find shorts that actually find right. Or the waist is too small and it fits right at the legs, or the legs find perfect and the waist is way too big. This pair of shorts I have had for about four or maybe even five years because they fit the best.

☼ BLUE & WHITE STRIPES ☼

Most people think of a flower pattern, when they are getting ready for summer. For me, blue & white striped items really represent the feeling of summer. This print and color combination just gives me beachy kind of vibes. A blouse like I have is very thin and therefor perfect for a warm summer day or to wear as a bikini cover. Besides the blouse, I also own a dress from Stradivarius in the same print, which I like to wear during summer.

BLACK PLATFORM SANDALS: Steve Madden | STRIPED BLOUSE: H&M

☼ PLATFORM SANDALS ☼

Being comfortable is so important to me in summer. When it comes to clothes that pretty easy because I just wear airy and loose clothing items. For shoes it’s a lot harder. Flip flops are so easy to throw on, but don’t look very cute. I also don’t want to wear sneakers all the time. So when I saw a lot of people wearing platform sandals, I got very curious. They might look weird at first, but I have really gotten used to it. The ones I own are very comfortable to walk in and look good with every type of outfit.

ZODIAC & BRAILLE NECKLACE: oNecklace

☼ STRAW BAG ☼

I have been seeing these straw bags almost everywhere since summer started. Some shops even call them the ‘blogger bag’, which is kind of funny because every blogger owns one by now. I think straw detailed items are essential for summer because it just screams beach. A small straw bag, like mine, is easy to take with me wherever I go. If I would want to go to the beach, a bigger one would be perfect for some magazines, a beach towel and other beach essentials.

☼ LAYERING NECKLACES ☼

Throughout all seasons I am all about minimalistic jewelry pieces, so that’s also the case during summer. I mostly wear my everyday jewelry, but when I feel fun or have a special occasion, I also like to wear other pieces.  First I have the zodiac constellation coin necklace, which has my zodiac sign on it. The second one is a braille bar necklace with the letter ‘N’. These two necklaces I received from oNecklace are actually great to wear together. Personalized necklaces like these make it even more special to me, since it means something.

STRAW BAG: Dille & Kamille | SUNGLASSES: CheapAss Sunglasses

If The Beatles song is in your head after reading the title, you should definitely listen to this cover of it. 🌴 I am so excited to go on holiday and wear all of my summer essentials. This summer you’ll find a lot of travel posts on Thoughts in Style because I love sharing everything I do, including traveling. So, you better get ready for that… What are your summer essentials? Which of mine is your favorite?

Love,

Neeltje

    Blue and white are really such an essential pattern on my clothing! I find it looks very simple yet chic and super Parisian if worn the right way, which I’m all about. I also love that 1930’s “sailor style” and the blue and white pin stripes match that perfectly. I just got a pair of shorts from Zara with this print. Platform sandals are one thing I’ve been meaning to get into. I love espadrilles and I guess they are kind of similar but I’ve really got to get into the whole platform thing more … not on heels that is lol!

    I love the style of your pictures!!

    Those sandals look great and super comfy as well. It is quite hard to find nice sandals they are either super thin and uncomfortable or they look like teva’s..
