SUMMER WISH LIST♡

Good morning my loves! How are you all this beautiful sunny day? I'm back home for a couple of days and it's boiling hot here. But, thankfully, I will be going back to the beach and there will also be some more travelling involved ^_^
Since I tend to travel quite a lot, especially during the summer, I know that packing can be tricky. This is why I teamed up with Spring to share with you my essentials for the beach. You guys should totally check out their website www.shopspring.com. They have such a wide selection of pretty much everything you need at every price point. 
My first essential has to be a large tote. I think a tote is the perfect style because you can fit so many things in it and you could even carry it on your shoulder. It's chic and practical and you don't have to worry about it getting all dirty from the sand and the salty water.
Then, you're going to need your beauty fix! Sunscreen, makeup, self-tanners and, of course, a cute little bag to fit everything in. Go for waterproof formulas with high SPF. I, surprisingly enough, don't wear makeup at the beach, but everyone is different ;)
And let's not forget about fun! I personally love a good book under the cooling shadow of the umbrella. But, I always bring my camera with me to capture all the amazing moments and my headphones(so I won't bother everyone else who is trying to chill!). When I'm with friends, we never forget some board game and, very important, our beach towels so we won't have to sit on the sand!
Last, but definitely not least, are the obvious. Bathing suits, cover-ups, hats and sunnies! There are SO many different styles to chose from that I just can't. I could buy a different pair of sunglasses for every single day of summer-yes I have an addiction XD

So what do you guys think about my picks? What are your summer essentials? Let me know in the comments below♥

STYLE FILE: POLKA DOTS♡

Hello everyone, it's Elena, reporting live from my bedroom, surrounded by tissues and medicine. Yup, I somehow managed to get sick again! But sickness won't keep me from delivering the most fresh and fashion-forward trends to you. 
Continuing with my mini-series about alternative spring prints, today I want to talk to you about polka dots. If you missed my previous post about rainbow stripes, you can check it out here.
Let's just start by saying that I am completely in love with polka dots. I think that they are so versatile and easy to style. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge stripes fanatic, but I believe that they can be a bit unflattering sometimes. Dots on the other hand, are so chic and can always add and interesting yet subtle touch to any look. 
They may not scream spring, like rainbow did, but I think that depending on your style you can look from very conservative to very playful with polka dots! I love their vintage-retro vibe and I definitely want to give them a go this spring. 
What about you? Are they something you are willing to try?

STYLE FILE: RAINBOW STRIPES♡

Hello my darlings! How are you today? Personally, I am freezing and currently wearing a chunky turtleneck. Spring huh? The weather here is not great at all but I know that warmer days are yet to come and I am excited! After all, I was born in spring, but I guess May is very different from March.
Anyway, I decided to start a new mini-series here with alternative prints you can wear during spring if you are not an avid floral lover. Personally I am in great terms with my florals but I do believe that they are getting pretty mainstream lately. It's invigorating to see that there are other chic options to choose from. 
Today we are experimenting with colorful stripes! I think that this geometric style is so nice and elegant and it is clear that there are ways to wear it without looking like a 5 y/o. 
I curated a bunch of different looks for all my girls out there. Feminine, bohemian, office-appropriate, crazy...it's all here. I have to say that I am pretty intrigued and I definitely want to try this trend!
What about you? Which one of these styles is your favorite for spring? Let me know in the comments below♥
