Officially summer is in full swing (even somewhat for Switzerland), and now all I want to buy are pieces for summer. I’ve really noticed the last two summers how much my style has evolved.
My philosophy used to be girly, bright, and if I like it, buy it. The problem with I like it, I buy it is that it usually results from cute pieces that can only be paired with very specific items in your closet since not a lot of thought went behind what you bought.
I don’t have the time anymore, on a daily basis, to coordinate outfits since I work now. When you wake up at 6:15 am on a daily basis, thinking about clothes has to take a backseat.
My best piece of advice for girls who don’t have time is to sick to basics, neutral colors, and clean lines so getting dressed becomes much easier.
When most of your pieces coordinate, it’s harder to say that you don’t have anything to wear. You can always make the outfit your own with a bold handbag, killer shoes, or a silk scarf (my favorite). I think I’ve finally realized less is more, and there is something so chic about a well put-together yet simplistic look.
Also, recently I have become obsessed with the Hermes Oran sandals. I feel like they are going to be the answer to all of my summer outfits. I plan on buying these when I’m in Italy next month visiting my family. It’s much cheaper in euros than francs, and can’t forget about getting VAT back.
Here are some of my outfit inspirations for Summer 2016:
