9 Summer Must-Haves

Summer Picks_Must Haves_Summer 2016_What Would V Wear-5

 Wouldn’t you agree that there’s nothing like new clothing to celebrate Summer?! I love buying new outfits to get myself stoked for Summer — I mean it’s my favorite season so, it needs to be celebrated! Continue reading to find out what’s happening in Summer fashion right now…


One of the things I really enjoy (and no, it’s not going to the gym!) during Summer is heading to the beach after work. I love listening to the waves as they hit the shore — for once I’m not connected to my mobile devices, and I can just let me mind wander around. Lately I’ve been craving a little break which is probably very common if you’re a blogger because we’re constantly socially “on”. I keep reminding myself that my real life is way more important than my life on social media but I must admit: It’s hard to balance it all sometimes. Do you feel the same way?

But let’s get back to fashion…As I have mentioned earlier, Summer is by far my favorite season which is why I always kick it off by buying new outfits and accessories! I’ve picked my favorites above — it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear this Summer!

PS: Be sure to come back tomorrow (Wed) for my very first Hair Tutorial on What Would V Wear!

As always, thanks much for reading and have a lovely Tuesday!

Much love.

    Such cute picks… love that dress! I completely agree, that although it’s challenging to put your phone down and step away from your computer and ‘turn off’, it is so important to let yourself live in the moment from time to time. I keep telling myself that too! Have a great day!

    Summer is my favorite season along with the spring, so we have to celebrate !! Really every season is the right to buy!
    I totally agree, itโ€™s hard to balance real life with the social media.
    Great picks dear!

    I can definitely relate to feeling overwhelmed at times and unless you’re a blogger, it’s really hard to understand. Like you said, we’re constantly “on”, so finding a healthy balance can be hard, but it really is essential. Spending time at the beach is such a wonderful way to mentally escape, I’ve always said that the sea is the best medicine ๐Ÿ™‚ With that, I love all your suggestions here, especially that red satchel and sunglasses, such pretty pieces for summer! Thanks so much for sharing, my beautiful friend, and I hope you’re having a wonderful start to your week so far!

    Great picks – I love all of them – especially the red bag and the lipstick!
    I can definitely relate to feeling overwhelmed at times and finding it hard to strike a balance between real life and social media! I think being at the beach is a wonderful way to switch off and I am really looking forward to some relaxing time with my family this summer (if I manage to put the phone down!!)

    True, dear V., life out of the web is more important than being always on, but that said is easier than doing it ๐Ÿ™‚ True as well, we are constantly on ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved the summer essentials, especially the top/tunic and sunnies – they are fabulous! Hugs and regards!

    I love these picks!

    I totally agree about separating real life from being on social media all the time. It’s SO exhausting… but it all comes with the blog life <3

    The sunnies are so precious, adore them and the pattern! And yes, finding a balance between work and leisure is hard, especially now when it’s summer and people are on vaccation and you’re left with work as usual! Xx

    I totally love celebrating summer with buying new wardrobe pieces!! All of these are amazing picks, I’m so in love with the striped dress, bag and I need those sandals!! Social media can be overwhelming for sure so I try to limit my use to a few times a week as opposed to everyday or you just become consumed by it. Hope you are having a great week Vanessa!

    Loving all of these picks! I love the beach but living in the burbs makes it a bit harder to get out that way! I love that dress and that bright, red bag!

    Loving all your summer must haves! MAC Ruby woo with vino lip liner has been my go to red for the last few months! it’s such a great red that looks great on just about any skin tone. I can’t wait to see you hair tutorial, I saw a little bit of your preview on snapchat. And it looked fantastic. I like to be out in natural to unwind and disconnect from social media too. Its so important to unwind but like everyone else I too struggle with finding that balance ๐Ÿ™

    I especially start craving a break from all the blogging stuff when the summer months come. I think naturally you just wanna get out and live a bit more. Love the sunnies too!
