The last week of August is on it’s way, and that means it’s soon time to say goodbye to summer. (How is it over already!?). This summer went by way too fast and I feel like I didn’t get to enjoy nearly enough sunshine and sangria or beach days in bikinis. (Although I think I may say that every August). All good things come to an end, but before they do, I thought I’d look back a bit on my favourite songs and styles from the past summer.
To celebrate the launch of their swanky new headphones with will.i.am, FarFetch challenged me to share my top three tracks and style essentials that sum up my summer of 2016, as part of their blogger competition. And good news guys, there’s also a chance for you to win a pair of the new i.am+ EPs headphones! All you need to do to participate is to leave a comment on this post.
SUMMING UP MY SUMMER STYLE
My summer style is all about easy classics with a few trendier pieces thrown in the mix as well. I just bought a new pair of denim shorts and have basically been living in them, combined casually with a slogan tee and my trusty Converse. I’m also all about stripes during the summer, and have been wearing them in both tops and dresses, usually with a pair of cute ballet flats. (I wish I had these Chloé ones!).
Off the shoulder everything was one of the biggest trends this summer, and I rocked my white off the shoulder top quite a few times too. When it comes to accessories, my nude crossbody bag is pretty much the only one I wear. I also bought my first RayBan sunnies this summer and they’ve been basically glued to my face. Finally, if there’s something that’s a summer staple it’s a bikini, and my favourites always come in white with scalloped edges.
MY SUMMER SOUNDTRACK
For me summer music is all about happy, relaxed vibes and songs that make me want to dance down the street. I’ve completely fallen in love with The Chainsmokers and can’t help but bust a bit of a move when I hear Closer. I also couldn’t talk about my summer song favourites without mentioning the Finnish group Younghearted. Since I love their feel good song Tässä ja Nyt. Finally, Justin Timberlake‘s latest track Can’t Stop the Feeling always puts a smile on my face.
What were your favourite songs & styles this summer?
